    Default What Pre-Fab Kennels To Buy

    I am building a new kennel, will have smooth concrete floor.
    What kennels do you recommend? I do not want chain link.
    Have looked at Priefert and TK Products out of MI.
    Kennel will have roof, siding and windows.
    Kennels will not be exposed. I want to build 4'wide x 5' deep 6' tall kennels
    any thoughts would be appreciated.
    Thx.

    DO NOT BUY PREIFERT!!

    Do a search on the products forum.

    For the money they are a complete waste. The powder coating chips and then they rust. Plus the welds break and can catch your dogs' feet on them.

    A lot of people are afraid of heights. Not me, I'm afraid of widths.

    We did not prefer the Options Plus kennels we bought. Actually sent them back. Very floppy and thin wire. Be careful that the actual wire gauge is measured, not the wire plus the coating.

    Gregg,

    I have seen the TK Products installed. I think it is a nice system.

    We have full mason runs. Awesome product, darn near bullet proof great customer serivce. Ours are the 1 1/4 inch galvanized chain-link but it is all streched and wrapped on the frame, little to zero stretch and flex. Ours are about 5 years old and the still look like new.

    Here is a link for some pictures.
