What is the difference
between the Bronze and Platinum modular dog kennels?
Our Bronze Series dog kennels are
designed for medium and smaller dogs, although properly trained
larger dogs can also be housed in this product. It is manufactured
using 11-1/2 gauge welded mesh, which is then welded to a ¾"
20-gauge frame. Each panel is 3' x 4' and is powder-coated black.
These panels can be set up in many different configurations (either
3' or 4' high).
Our Platinum Series is a commercial-grade
dog kennel, with 3/16" solid steel bars (6-gauge). These
bars are welded so that the openings are 2"x2" on the
bottom third of the panels, 2"x4" in the middle third
and 2"x6" on the top third. Each panel is 5' wide x
6' high and has a 1-1/4 square frame for strength and rigidity.
This is our heaviest and strongest kennel. Completely powder-coated
What size dog kennel do
The size of a dog kennel for your
pet depends on the size and activity level, as well as the amount
of time that will be spent daily in the kennel. Larger dogs (50
lbs. or more) need more room for exercise, while medium or smaller
dogs do not. If you have an active pet, build a dog kennel that
allows for maximum activity and comfort, as it will make for
a happier pet. With our modular design it is easy to increase
the size of the kennel simply by adding the number of panels
What sizes are available?
Traditional dog kennel sizes are
usually 10'L x 10'W. With the modular dog kennels panels from
Options Plus, you can build any size and configuration that fits
your pet's needs, just by adding additional panels. We have included
different configuration suggestions, but don't be hesitant to
design your own!
How are the dog kennels
shipped and how will I pick them up?
Freight is included in our pricing.
Dog Kennels and panels are packaged (see pictures of shipping
pallet or box under Shipping
Info) and shipped to the nearest freight
terminal or commercial business (we'll let you know which freight
carrier and ship date). The reason for this is that most freight
companies charge an additional fee for residential delivery.
We can send the products to your residence; just let us know
when ordering (a $50 delivery fee will apply). On the Ultra,
Diamond and Platinum Series dog kennels, each panel is 5' wide,
and a vehicle such as a pickup truck is recommended for transporting.
The Bronze Series can be shipped by UPS or Airborne ground service,
so the $50 home delivery charge does not apply. You can also
pickup at our factory location in Fredericktown, Ohio.
How long does it take to
receive a dog kennel after it is ordered?
We ship within 5-7 business days,
and freight companies usually deliver within 3-7 business days.
Do you sell replacement
parts and/or accessories?
Yes, just order online or contact
us by phone, fax, or e-mail and we can help you with any parts.
What is the best method
to ask you a question about your dog kennels?
E-mail is the fastest and easiest
way. We will get back to you as fast as we can!
What is the quality of
your kennel covers?
Kennel covers are made to protect
your pet from rain and sun. While our commercial grade covers
are very strong, they are not designed to withstand heavy snow
loads or high winds. We recommend that every kennel be staked
down for safety, especially when using kennel covers (to protect
against heavy winds lifting kennels). If snow load or high winds
are a concern in your area, we suggest to purchase our hard roof kennel system.
Will your kennel cover
kits and hard roofing fit other manufacturer's dog kennels?
Yes, our standard dog kennel covers
are designed to fit most 10' x 10' kennels with standard frame
size and we can also custom design a kennel cover for many other
configurations. Let us know your needs and we'll let you know
what we can do.
What accessories do you
have to secure the Dog Kennel?
Our accessory stake kit comes with
four 12" stakes that fit over the bottom railing and into
the ground. We also have wall and concrete anchors.
What are the weights of
the dog kennels?
We've listed all of our kennel weights
with the product listings, for your convenience.
