    I'm building my own kennels at the moment.I don't like kennels but i'm building some for whelping $#@!es and pups.It's costing some money but they'll hold a dog and last for a long time.The cost of the materials it takes to build a good kennel adds up.

    Yep building your own is the best route to go. If I had it to do over that's what I'd do. I built my own back in the 80's and not a single dog ever got out.

    You use hog panels on the sides. Chicken wire on the bottom to stop em from digging out. Lwg do a search and you'll find some kennels I built. The only bad part about em really is that their 4 foot tall. But it's not like your in there that long cleaning em. DO NOT USE CHICKEN WIRE ON THE SIDES. You'll have a loose dog and lots of dead foo foos.

    Tractor supply has a good one, made of a brown 8 guage powdercoated steel that I bought. They are 10 x 10 and six feet high. $549.00 I ordered and extra door panel and split the kennel in half to make 2 kennels for two dogs. Also you tube has a good video on kennels that Tom Garner made for Yard. Very good video and goes into detail.

    I use the panels with the smaller 4"x 2" openings,to keep pups inside the pen.

    my dogs would chew right through that wire naus. if this guy doesnt know the basics in carpentry, making his own might be a disaster in the making.

    tractor supply sells the professional kennel, 5 x 10 for 385.00. the nice roof that foits it is about a hundred.

    dont be a cheap skate when it comes to housing these dogs LWC. you will regret it.

    That's the one I was talking about. I did the same thing you did to make it into 2 kennels.

    I was trying to say the exact same thing in chat last night. I have had a dog chew and pull on the wire panel. You've also got to make sure the roof is tight and secure, the same dog that chewed the wire also climbed 8 ft and busted/squeezed his way out. If you use quality material and have the tools to make the job quicker and easier it is much more fun to build the kennel yourself. I haven't seen the one TSC has but hopefully it can be cemented into the ground or secured to a concrete pad. Pouring your own concrete pads isn't difficult either but an inexperienced person probably won't trowel out a smooth hard finish.

    I just bought 2 kennels from tractor supply which were 5x10 on sale for $229.99 I think they are 8 gauge not a bad deal and easy to build

    Do you know a welder ?
    Get some tubes and let him weld 1 for you

    This is imo with a roof on top 1 of the best you can have for an APBT better then wire fence kennels.
    This would cost over here in $ 315,- but if i would get tubes for a welder it would be much cheaper
