in Kiln, Mississippi
from New Orleans, La)
We designed our kennel area after years of trial and error with managing
the dogs. We also had a fantasy list of comforts for ourselves.
The end results were a climate controlled building for the dogs to sleep
which includes a separate whelping and puppy area; bathroom, full
laundry and kitchen facilities; and TV and internet! We decided on
concrete runs under a huge connecting pavilion which has overhead fans
to keep the dogs cool during the heat of the summer. The concrete is
easy for us to clean and was designed with a separate septic system.
The entire area is security fenced with a privacy fence in front.
There are also large fenced exercise yards for conditioning. The
dogs have adjusted well to the southern temperatures and enjoy having
the freedom that 15 acres affords. They can bark, howl, play and be
dogs, they are happy and we are happy, free from the stress of the
restrictions of the city!
