I have 30 indoor and 30 outdoor Priefert kennels. I have had them for about 6 years with some very hard use (Boarding). I wash them with a pressure washer and use a lot of Clorox (corrosive) on them frequently. The outdoor ones are starting to deteriorate (the frame) this year and I will probably replace them next year or the year after. I have to say I have never had a dog break out of one ; I have seen dogs rip the "cheaper" chain link fencing right off the frame. They are also very easy to set up or take down and I think they look nice.

Hey Jay,
My outside runs are only covered by Sunscreen (black Fabric) in the summer. ; so they are very exposed to the weather. I am sure they can make it another 2-3 years without too much problem,but I'm boarding clients dogs and have to consider appearance,safety,etc. ... Some welds have broken where the wire meets the frame, but overall that is no big deal. The frames are rusting badly where they meet the ground and I actually cut 1" off the bottom to remedy this. Also the powder coating has peeled off here and there and is starting to rust. I look at all this as normal wear and tear. My indoor runs are in Very Good condition still. Hope that helps.
