    Did you check out the cited portion of the regs ? "Barrels" not any other type of enclosure are spelled out as being verboten. The size of things like Veri kennels would depend on the size of the dog.

    Having read through most of the document linked above, it's this lay person's opinion that these regulations apply to licensed kennel owner/operators in the state of Pennsylvania: "These amendments are intended to facilitate enforcement of the act by providing kennel licensees a clearer picture of what is expected of them." It does say specifically that "(e) A dog may not be housed on a temporary or permanent basis in a drum or barrel dog house, regardless of the material of which the drum or barrel is constructed." So you licensed kennel owners in PA probably ought to skip the K-9 Condos and their imitations.

    The rest of us can breathe easy, LOL.

    Another reference for PA Law. Applies to all dog owners not just folks with one of the various Kennel Licenses required if you house over X number of dogs..

    Pennsylvania "Dog Law" Act 119.
    .
    (b) Housing.--It shall be unlawful for the owner or keeper of a dog to house the dog for any period of time in a drum, barrel, refrigerator or freezer regardless of the material of which the drum, barrel, refrigerator or freezer is constructed.

    I used 55gal plastic barrels within Preifert kennels for years in PA in plain view of major state road. Had no issues but could have if someone felt like it.

    Back to the OP's question, here is a link to a great dog house website that does provide a kit for barrels.........http://www.k-9kondo.com/k-9-kondo-do...free-shipping/

    I don't currently use the barrel concept but have in the past. I currently use the Dog Den 2 for my dogs. Doesn't sound like they would meet Fallon's reg's either but a dog does better and actually prefers a smaller space to snuggle up on cold nights, IMO.

    I bought heavy sheets of plastic to put behind the inside of my dog runs on indoor/outdoor runs. Got it from the mail order place that sells all that stuff (can't remember the name of it). Anyway, on my barrels i cut out half of the front and then simply put a rectangular sheet of the plastic and drilled a hole through the plastic and barrels and attached with bolts. I didn't do the back, it just sits on the ground. Rambunctious dogs can turn them over if they want, but in the winter they leave them alone. I take them out in the summer and put Kooleros in the inside runs. You could use a piece of wood for this too but the dogs would chew it badly. The heavy plastic is about 3/16 thick. I tilt the front of the barrell where its off the floor, supported by the rectangle of plastic. the back sits on the kennel floor.
