Dog owners have many options for keeping their canine companions contained. While some choose to let them roam freely throughout the home, others crate them using indoor kennels, or keep them in a fenced-in backyard. Yet, there is another alternative to consider outdoor dog kennels. Blending benefits from each of these different containment options, they are the perfect solutions for dog-friendly homes. So, why are dog kennels beneficial to our furry friends and their humans? Here is why.
Space to Play
Many indoor kennels only provide enough space for a dog to lie down, stand up, and turn around comfortably. While many dogs need to be contained for their own protection, long periods of time in these crates can cause boredom and discomfort. Outdoor kennels offer containment but have the added benefit of outdoor stimuli, along with more space. Your pup’s kennel can be as large as you would like it to be, ensuring they have plenty of room to run and play at their leisure.
One advantage is that this is a sturdy structure. This means that there is always a safe place for the dog to be. A dog kennel is a great way for a dog to spend some time outdoors in a secure area with a shelter. It provides a safe place for the dog to get in some outdoor exercise and burn off energy, so he or she is not destructive in the home. Outdoor dog kennels provide a safe place for your pet when they might otherwise be left unsupervised in the yard. If you are going to be keeping your pet outside, then you would need to have a nice fenced in yard, and an outdoor dog kennel can be a cheaper alternative to having to get fencing to secure the backyard. Kennels can be safer for when the pet is nervous or scared as well. During fireworks or other loud noises, your pet may be able to jump over the fence, but a properly constructed kennel will allow your pet to remain safe.
A Pristine Yard
While you could allow your dog to roam free in your yard, this increases the odds that they will damage your property or your neighbor’s property. Pet urine can discolor grass while digging habits can uproot the gardens you work hard to maintain. In kennels, pets get their own spaces to do as they please, and the rest of your lawn will remain immaculate. Trust us, your lawn and your neighbor will thank you.
