Ideas-4-Pets have a selection of dog runs for sale to keep your dog safe and secure outside. Choose from either a mesh dog run with an optional waterproof gable roof or if the size doesn't suit your requirements, look at our galvanised panels which can be purchased to build a dog run to your own specification. The galvanised dog run panels are available in several widths and can be in dog mesh or bars with 5cm spacings or 8cm spacings dependent upon the type of dog you own.
If you are going to purchase an outdoor dog run then keeping it clean is a must in order to keep your dog in good health. Remember that grass or gravel surfaces can quickly become muddy and soiled and are difficult to keep clean, meaning that your dog could suffer poor health as a consequence. Ideally, you should assemble the dog run on a flat surface without any gaps such as a solid concrete base or concrete paving slabs. Remember to properly point the gaps in between the slabs with cement to prevent them from trapping any dirt. If you build the base about 6 inches larger than the dog run, then the run will sit easily on to it instead of at the edge, which could cause cracking.
By adding a dog kennel or a dog cabin, your dog can be contained safely and securely with access to his own "den" when he wants to sleep. You might also want to consider some feeding & drinking bowls to the dog run to ensure your dog is kept fed and watered whilst you are at work.
