Dog Kennels & Flaps
Dog Kennels & Dog FlapsOutdoor living for your dog
Most dogs love being in the outdoors and having access to outdoor spaces. If you would like to allow your dog independent access to your garden, or if you want him to have his own
sheltered hideaway outdoors, then bitiba's selection of dog kennels and dog flaps is exactly what you need! Here are a few tips for purchasing your plastic dog kennel or wooden dog kennel.
Material: Here at bitiba UK we have both wooden dog kennels and plastic dog kennels. A plastic dog kennel is easy to maintain but does not 'breathe' as well as the wooden dog kennels. A wooden dog kennel in the UK has a classic look, but will require a little more maintenance in the long term than the plastic dog kennel. For example you may need to treat the wood after a time. Some of our wooden dog kennels are insulated for extra comfort in winter. In the UK wooden dog kennels may well require regular care against wet weather!
Size: All of our dog kennels are listed by size, to help you choose the right one for your dog. The wooden dog kennel or plastic dog kennel needs to be of a good size, so that your dog can turn around and stand up when it is inside, but not so large that your dog can't keep it warm with its own body heat on colder days. As a rough guide, size S kennels are ideal for smaller breed dogs, size M or L for medium size dogs (e.g. Beagle or Cocker Spaniel), and size XL or XXL are the right size for larger breeds (e.g. Dalmatian, Labrador and larger breeds). To make sure you have the right size, measure your dog's height and length and compare these with the internal measurements to ensure it has room to move. Bear in mind that if your dog is still growing it may grow out of its kennel!
Kennels at bitiba:
- Small dog kennels: the perfect size for the comfort of small breed dogs or puppies
- L and XL kennels: for dogs that need lots of room! Most of these have a pitched roof for extra headroom.
- Plastic Dog Kennels: lightweight and easy to clean, plastic dog kennels are durable and do not require as much aftercare (e.g. periodic wood treatment) as wooden dog kennels.
