Should dogs live in the house or out in the garden? We have had a succession of Collie dogs and whenever they came in the house, they spent their time sniffing the air coming in under the backdoor and took every opportunity to 'break out', therefore we have always opted for an outside kennel. But whatever your preference, all dogs are in need of somewhere in the yard to call 'home'.
Granddad Rob's Kempton Kennels are available in three sizes,
Kempton Labrador Kennel
Kempton Shepherd Kennel
Kempton Dane Kennel
All the Kempton Kennels have the option to situate the door arch in either of the side walls, or more traditionally into the gable end, please make your choice known when ordering.
Constructed with the Granddad Rob's own distinctive, pressure treated, 20mm thick, tile effect boarding. Glued and screwed (no nails). For extra protection (belt & braces) the under side of the roof board is also lined with an exterior grade ply. Bed access is gained via a hinged roof. To best suit your site's orientation, please make your choice when ordering.
20mm thick pressure treated boards, Glued and screwed (no nails).
12mm thick MARINE grade ply, To guard against damp the floor is suspended 10cm above the ground.
OPTIONAL DRAFT CURTAINS:
Clear heavy plastic strip curtains that fall back across the arch to help exclude drafts, without diminishing the light
OPTIONAL RAISED BED:
A removable bunk positions the bed area 10cm above the kennel floor to keep the dog out of floor level draughts
Fitted internally to all walls, roof & floor. The insulation is protected with a exterior grade ply liner (reduces the internal space by approx 25mm all-round)
Although the timber we build with is pressure treaded or marine grade and will last many years, we still think it prudent occasionally to apply a re-treatment. I have personal used this treatment on my own housing, and can highly recommend it:
STOPS WATER DEGRADATION -
Forms a water shedding coating stopping water ingression and potential wood rot.
CAN BE APPLIED TO WET WOOD -
No waiting for that elusive day when you have time and the wood is dry.
MICRO POROUS -
Allows the wood to ‘breath’.
Has a milky colour when applied but dries clear, so OK to applied liberally without showing too many brush or run marks.
SUITABLE FOR ANIMAL HOUSING -
And says as much on the label!
DELIVERY & VAT
Against the trend, we have always endeavoured to set out our stall with the price shown to include DELIVERY and VAT, so no hidden charges to ‘bump up’ the bill. Therefore, the price listed includes delivery for the UK Mainland (Highlands & Overseas please contact us) and assumes any options required are ordered and delivered with the principle purchase.
