    Default Raised Kennel Flooring?

    I am in the process of designing my own raised kennel.

    Can anyone recommend a material to use for the flooring?

    Thank you.

    Default Flooring

    I have used 1 x 4 oak slats for about 15 years, build it like a deck, leave 1 inch gap between boards, easy on hips and legs, because it gives, easy to clean, easy to replace ( screws)

    Default Kennel flooring

    The oak floor is Not Treated. I am tryin some noe that I put Thompsons water seal on. Have to be careful what you put on floor in case a dog chews

    Untreated in an uncovered kennel I get 3-5 years out of flooring
    I am hoping a water seal will extend the life
