Dog Run Design
The easiest way to design your own dog run is to purchase a modular panel run and gate. This way you can set it up in your front or back yard in the specific way that you want. The only limitation to setting up a dog run in the way you want to design it is your imagination.
Since dog breeders' needs are constantly changing the modular dog run panels allow them to set up complete runs, portions of the runs or simply reconfigure existing runs. With a modular dog run it is just a matter of what size you want, the shape you think would be best for your situation and then getting the parts necessary. Since the dog run fence panels are normally sold separately from the gate panel be sure and take that into consideration when figuring out what size you will need and how many panels you want to purchase.
No matter what brand of dog run modular panels you end up getting it is recommended that you get steel fences that have been galvanized to protect them from rusting. Other metals and plastics are simply too soft and will wear out fast from use and the normal wear and tear that all dog runs experience.
When you are shopping around for your dog run that meets your design specifications make sure to ask about covers as almost every weather type requires that your dog have a cover to protect it and give it reliable shelter. Dogs without shelter from the elements will be much more susceptible to illness and disease and as your dog's owner the duty falls on you for yoursound health.
