kennel size

2 posts in this topic

I’m looking at building a kennel for a lab and trying to figure out the best size to build? I’m thinking about attaching it to my garage and thinking maybe have something like 5’x10’ outside and 4’x5’ inside. What do you think? any good tips?

I have a 6x12 outside, with a 2-room doghouse that sits outside of the kennel. it is up against my garage. I just moved into this house so i havent had a chance to make an area inside the garage yet for her. I will probably make that 4x4, enough room for her to get in around the corner out of the elements, she spends most of her time outside anyway. I built a "lean-to" type room over 3/4 of it so she can have sun or shade, and the lean-to roof helps with tarping it up in the winter

    • Just said he's been down a long time.....hours. Guess it's a dead rescue. Every friggin' ought to be MANDATORY that you carry and use a spud when venturing out on the ice...or wear one of the ice fishing suit PFD's. 
    • academic research.  Maybe some day, but for now I would say walleye in stores and restaurants comes from netting in Canada.   Or is zander from Europe... 
    • Have a friend that does this....    
    • There's a live rescue going on in Wis Como Lake I think it was right now for a guy that went through but it doesn't look good as they just sent the divers down.   WISN 12 NEWS
    • Ho Ho....   or       Use the fake news thing as a way to censor speech not acceptable to the left.  Yah sure. 
    • Pen raised walleye?   Sounds like fake news.   Lots of Canadian walleye but I think it is netted from wild in places like Lake Winnipeg or Red Lake and so on.   Must be Putin trying to discredit the Canadian Walleye providers. 
    • Quick question. On the striker models they have a setting called the A-scope. It basically widens the right hand part of the screen where it starts so that it works kinda like a showdown at the beginning of the graph which I like on the ice.  Can you check and see if that unit has that?  
    • 5 x 5 will be nor problem for one guy and gear.  I speared out of a two man flip over otter sled for several years and had not problem.  Use to spear out of a 4 x 6 permanent and that is less sq foot than the 5 x 5 hub.  It is nice to have a large hole and yes it lets in more light in those low light conditions but I always used a 3 x 2 spear hole and never had any issues.  It worked, could it be better?  Of course but you just have to figure out what is right for you.  Get a 5 x 5 foot piece of cardboard draw out your hole on it, set up your chair and put all your gear on it and then sit down.  This is probably the closest way to experiencing it prior to doing so...... Good Luck 
    • I've seen walleye at grocery stores in the cities for a buck or two more than king crab.   Yeesh.
