Dog owners who have their dogs’ kennels set up on artificial grass for dogs in Seattle can provide their pets with the best possible care. After all, synthetic turf is soft, easy on the paws and safe for dogs. And if that’s not enough, it also stays in great shape with minimal upkeep.

Building a dog kennel on artificial grass requires attention to several key details to ensure a good living space for your dogs.

What Makes a Great Dog Kennel?

Tough Materials

Durable materials that will not splinter, rust, rot and wear out due to the elements are ideal for kennels. In this regard, synthetic turf is the perfect flooring for dog kennels. It doesn’t take damage from pet waste, foot traffic or bad weather conditions.

Right Size

The sizes of your dogs should dictate the size of your kennel. Small dogs can fit in a small kennel; large dogs can grow into a larger one. If you have a large breed dog, it would make sense to build your kennel at least 3 feet longer than the length of your pet.

The great news is that turf installers can modify artificial turf for pets in Seattle to fit into spaces of all shapes and sizes. You don’t have to worry about your kennel having patchy or bald spots.

Smart Design

The design of your kennel should allow plenty of outside room for ventilation and visibility. It should also allow easy access to the crate without being too high off the ground. Your dogs will also enjoy being able to see out of their den, so you should include windows in your design.

Artificial turf contributes both comfort and style to kennel designs. Not only does it look and feel good, but it also helps the space cool. Unlike real grass, it doesn’t absorb and retain heat. It also won’t become stinky due to pet waste and urine.

How to Build the Perfect Pet Kennel

Select a Site for the Dog Kennel

The first step in building any structure is choosing an appropriate location. You’ll want to consider aspects of the area such as:

  • Sun Exposure: Make sure your dogs have an area to get in and out of the sun. Use either natural shade from trees or build some sort of cover over part of the kennel area.
  • Surface: You’ll want to make sure there’s a flat surface for your artificial grass installation. If you’re using decking, you don’t need to worry about this; if not, don’t fret. Your turf installers will level out the ground.
  • Fencing: Your fencing needs vary depending on how much freedom you want for your dogs. Go for solid fences for privacy. If you want to give your dogs a great view, use see-through materials like screens for your fence.

Let Experts Install Synthetic Turf

Even though installing artificial grass for dogs in Seattle is a relatively simple task, make sure you leave it to professionals so you don’t risk damaging it during installation. This will also ensure that the grass is properly measured and cut to fit your dogs’ kennel space.

Build or Buy Walls, a Roof and a Gate

You can either build or buy walls for the kennel, depending on how big you want it to be and what materials you have available. You can use anything from wood to concrete blocks for the walls.

It’s up to you whether you want to add a roof or gate as well, but make sure that they are strong enough to withstand wear and tear from your dogs.

Customize Your Pet’s New Space With Accessories

Once the installation is done, you can customize your pets’ new space with all of their favorite accessories. Our artificial grass already has the comfort factor down pat with its soft, lush surface, leavingyou to focus on the fun and challenging factors.

Consider getting a pet playground set or building a doggy jungle gym. Just make sure that you don’t clutter up the kennel.
