So you have decided to take the plunge and buy a dog. Years of joy and fulfilment await you as the owner of a loving, faithful and devoted canine. But with buying a dog come all of the responsibilities, and this includes not only making sure it is well fed and has all its necessary shots, but also ensuring you have provided the correct housing for your animal. While toy breeds and tiny dogs such as Yorkshire terriers and chihuahuas will spend most of their time indoors, and may even sleep in the house during the night, larger and more active breeds such as German shepherds, boxers and even spaniels will prefer to sleep outside. After all, you don’t want a bored and over-active big dog chewing up couch cushions or your childrens homework during the night!

When housing your dog outside, you will need to make sure you select a proper outdoor kennel which is large and sturdy enough to keep your dog safe and secure and to protect it from all the elements. Include a cosy dog bed or big cushion in the kennel for your dog to sleep on, especially during the chilly winter months when night-time temperatures plummet.

When attached to dog kennels, dog runs provide your canine with a secure outdoor environment in which to play and let off steam during the day or night when you are not on hand to take them for a long walk. You can also buy dog runs especially for puppies, if you ever breed a litter from your beloved pets. They come in a range of sizes and can be made with either mesh or bars. Always make sure you go for the galvanized options, as these are the strongest, most durable and most long-lasting.

They are also incredibly secure, so you won’t have to fret about your pooch’s safety. Now you have your dogs outdoor accommodation sorted out, it is time to relax and look forward to years of fun and delight with your new pet. Long walks in the park or on the beach, and plenty of slobbery kisses await you. To get a better idea of the kind of dog panels you can use for your pets dog run, check out our selection.
