I have two large boxer dogs. My male dog is a beast! We used to lock them in the bathroom when we left the house (he would dig under the fence and get out when we left him outside) while in the bathroom for 39 minutes, he chewed his way out through the bathroom door. Yup, a hole in the door about 2 feet wide and 2 feet high. He also dug through my bathroom floor and tried eating his way out through the wall. Finally I got tired of him getting out and tearing apart my house and was tempted to give him away. So I bought this kennel with doubts. But my boyfriend and brother put it together in about 3 hours. We used a little extra wire just in case and dug a trench about 3 inches deep and 4 inches wide and set the cage in it. We also took a few links from the roll of chain link it came with off, just to make the fence stronger around the cage. This is the FIRST thing to hold my demon dog in. If it is "Mac Proof" (my demon dog) it is strong enough for any dog.

Unlike more costly kennels, which use individual wall panels, this unit utilizes a single 'sheet' of fence fabric to wrap around all sides. Assembly by one person is somewhat challenging, but is certainly possible.

The tubular frame seems sturdy enough with the top and bottom rails being each composed of four sections swaged to slide together to form each part (a square with rounded corners). The vertical posts clamp to the top and bottom rails. Since the top and bottom sections do have rounded corners, it is necessary to measure in order to fit the corner posts accurately. We also used a level to plumb the verticles.

The gate is fairly narrow - which is generally not a problem, but if one wishes to put a hard-sided crate (or perhaps a doghouse) inside the kennel, plan ahead.

The fence fabric is tied to the various rails via standard chain-link fence aluminum ties. The instructions suggest putting a tie every 3 diamonds at the top and every 5 at the bottom. We put them every 3 diamonds top and bottom - plenty were supplied.

After assembly, the kennel seemed fairly substantial...until our then 6-month old female German Shepherd Dog had a go at it. She first attacked the gate and bent the fence fabric at the bottom, though did not escape. After repairing this area (see below), we left her there again. This time she managed to push up (and significantly bend) the fence fabric at one bottom edge sufficiently to enable her to escape (fortunately, the secondary containment system kept her from REALLY escaping).

Our repair and future (hopefully permanent) fix is that we wove a galvanized wire through the 2nd row of diamonds from the bottom and secured it on each vertical post. We then looped the same type wire around the bottom rail and through every bottom diamond, thus "tying down" the fence. We'll see.

So, recommended? Given sufficient information, one can secure the kennel as needed, so we do cautiously recommend it.

Keeping Scamp Home for the Holidays

    Comments about PetSafe Do It Yourself Dog Kennel:

    It has been getting harder with each passing holiday to leave our beagle mix, Scamp, at the local dog kennel when we had to be away. This kennel was able to be adapted to bolted right off our deck, allowing our pet sitter to just open the side door to let the dog in and out. Before he had to be leashed inside and walked outside, then transferred to a tie-out. Since he is unfortunately afraid of everything, this was no easy feat. We kenneled him when we went away because we were afraid he would take off if he spooked and got away from a sitter trying to get him outside. This Christmas was his first holiday at home, and he did GREAT. This kennel has been a lifesaver.

      Comments about PetSafe Do It Yourself Dog Kennel:

      This is a quality pen that we are using for two young sheep. Assembly took a couple of hours because we threaded an extra wire through all the bottom wires and around the tubing. It's light enough that we can even slide it over so they can eat more grass. We have used it for one week without any problems at all.

              Comments about PetSafe Do It Yourself Dog Kennel:

              I thought it would be easier to put this together. The quality of the chain link was disappointing and having to continuously unravel it was a pain in the neck. It kept getting stuck. A lot of the links were disconnected and had to be connected. The ties were very difficult to handle; must be better way of constructing them.

              I assmebled myself with help from my son. You need two people. The fencing was a little harder to install than expected. It took about 2 hours total. It is a perfect size for our dog who will be one year in June. Now we hope she gets used to it but should have no problem since she loves to be outside. Also, a great size for the money we paid.

              The instructions were pretty explicit but you need to add that the chains roll. After I wrapped the fence around the poles I found that the rows were not even because some of the chains came undone and twisted. My sister said the chain link fence she purchased addressed this problem. You need to say something about this in the instructions. Other wise it was pretty easy to put together.

                  The unit was easy to assemble but the fencing is very flimsy. I have a yellow lab and the dog easily destroyed the fence and escaped. The hooks that secure the fence to the poles should be welded on. If you don't crush them to stay on they fall off.
