Thread: Dog box specs

  1. #1

    Default Dog box specs

    Need to get a new 2 hole dog box made. I'm thinking of the following specs on my design.
    Dog box outside width 49 inches
    height 22 inches
    Depth 29.5 inches

    anyone see any issues with this? It will be for a medium to smaller sized labs. 55-60lbs

    The top box mfg'ers all use a standard size, might be best to go to their websites and check out the dimemsions.

    I have a two hole with the inside dimensions at 23" high by 23" wide (per hole) and 40" deep. I find it is the perfect size for a dog around 75lbs one thing i would change is the height, i would like my dog to be able to stand up naturally without bending his head. Other than that i think its perfect size.

    When I picked up my Ainley I asked them about the height as it seemed kind of short to someone not having hands on experience with them in the past. Their reasoning was so the dog couldn't stand with their head high in the event of a possible accident which would cause trauma to the dogs neck and head. Also without the dog being able to raise their head, dogs that were dirty kennel dogs would be less likely to defaecate if they can't raise their head.

    Standard dimensions for MTCK boxes. Just so happens I have one (June 2013) for sale. Your location ? I had them add a compartment for chairs and a 7' umbrella.
