    It should also be 6 in. taller than the dogs head when the dog is standing.

    also see page 166 21.24 (e) http://www.pabulletin.com/secure/dat...-2/26_2_rr.pdf

    Except for some of the smaller Labs, the 55 gal barrel does not meet the required criteria.

    Seriously? Who has a dog house as big as that regulation describes? Read it again. That regulation has to do with the size required if you were using a barrel as their kennel, NOT the size if it's their house that they can enter and leave at will. If you were to keep your dogs in a barrel I'd see where that might be a problem but using a barrel for a HOUSE inside their kennel isn't what they're getting at. Anyone keeping their dogs in a barrel deserves whatever the feds want to subject them to, including time in a Dogloo themselves.

    Yeah, I'm new here too, but I wasn't born yesterday.

    Very similar to mine, I don't have the cross bars on the top. Mine are a little higher, makes for easier blow or wash.

    So, I guess you are saying the distinction is... if it is in a chain link or other type of run a barrell is ok.

    How about if the dog is on a running line with the barrell at the one end? After all the dog is not confined to the barrell.

    Or lets say that the dog is allowed to just roam arround free and the barrell is just available to it whenever it wishes to go "inside"

    Sorry but I think you are mistaken.

    Actually what he is saying is that the regulation refers to a structure used to confine the dog, not for the dogs housing of which the dog can enter and leave as it wishes. Not sure how being tied to a running line would change the dogs ability to enter and leave a dog house.

    John,
    your link talks of runs and fencing.
    tell us what is larger, a 55 gal drum or the dog boxes in the back of all of our trucks?
    long, wide, high #'s
    is every dog truck on every circut ill eagle? Dogs "live" on those trucks you know.
    And all your years in the game and all the trials you have been at you have done nothing about these ill eagle dog houses?
    Shame shame shame

    BTW, very cool you are up and posting again! Love poking at you, you have been missed. Feeling a bit better??

    Thanks Ken, I am feeling ok for now.

    I am not in the enforcement end of it .... but I do mention the regs when I see a thread like this.
