Above ground kennel plans or ideas

I have been thinking about building some above ground kennels, I have been to the Scottís website and printed the list of materials I need to build one like theirs. I am wondering if anyone has the plans for the Scottís above ground kennels or some good ideas on how to build the above ground kennels.

If you have some information you could share with me, please e-mail me at bthainz@comcast.net

Thanks

Bart Hainz

Josh, does it have holes in it? How big are those runs you have?

Yes there are holes in it, I believe they are 5' X 10' runs.

I was just wondering, what is the advantage to having elevated kennels?

Is it stiff enough to just nail to the frame? Or do you have wood underneath it?

Advantage to above ground is less ticks & other types of pests and cleaner dogs.

Blue iron,
The flooring needs a center brace. It has pre-made holes for screwing to frame. Mine are on a steel angle frame.
Also the poly flooring does not hold bacteria like the poors in concrete might.

I hope to build a big set of kennels with this flooring in the next year. Plan to have four 5'-0 X 10'-0 runs on each side with a 4'-0 walkway between them an have it covered. I am sold on poly-flooring.

Something else is I don't notice the sores or raw spots on my dogs when on that flooring like I do when on concrete.

A rake works pretty good, Iv had this for 4-5 years and could count the times I have raked it on one hand.

Dogs cant chew it, its flat.

Concrete is the only way to go for me. Fleas and ticks are almost non-exsitant. Worms are much less. Dogs stay cleaner, look better, and toe nails get trimmed when they walk. Just makes things so much nicer. I have had all my hounds on concrete for over ten years and i have often wondered why i didn't do it sooner.

You're right 7.5 yds. Rule of thumb if using 2X4 forms, square ft. divided by 80 will give you number of yards needed. 20X30=600
600sq. ft. divided by 80 = 7.5
