Find the Right Kennel for your Dog

Choosing the right kennel for your dog is important – it’s going to be their home after all. They need to have somewhere comfortable, safe and warm where they can relax. The kennel you choose must be suited to their needs and size. It also requires a level of protection and comfort for your pooch. Nobody wants their pooch to be cold and uncomfortable.

You and your pooch are more than welcome to visit us in store, and we will help you match the right kennel for him/her.  Otherwise, follow our tips below. 

Choosing the right size

When choosing the right size kennel for your dog, it’s important that they have enough room to get up and turn around if they need to. They also require up to four inches of extra head space when standing up. We would advise not to get a kennel that is too big for your dogs size. Unfortunately, they will not be able to insulate and stay warm during cold weather in a kennel that’s too big. There’s also the possibility that your dog may use the extra space as a toilet – nobody wants that! If your dog is still a puppy then you should estimate what height and weight they will be at adult size and choose your kennel based off of that.
