What Should I Look for in a Kennel for Great Danes?
Size and Space
Because they can grow to be quite tall dogs, Great Danes need a kennel that will provide them with ample space to stretch their legs and move around. Make sure that your dog’s kennel is at least twice the width and the length of their body. Consider a kennel with a connecting dog door that can be opened by your dog, so it can go in and out of the run on its own. While it is good to have a kennel that is plenty large for your dog, be sure to climate control your kennel in some ways so that your dog is not getting chilly in the kennel.
Ventilation and Airflow
Having proper ventilation in your kennel for Great Danes is very important to keep your dogs healthy and comfortable. Not only will a poorly ventilated kennel begin to stink, but it is unhealthy for your dogs, and can cause respiratory issues over time. In the summer, lack of airflow in the dog kennel can cause your Great Dane to become uncomfortable, and worse, overheat. Try positioning the kennel in a place where breezes can reach your dog, and use fencing like chainlink or aluminum paneling to allow air to flow through the dog run. Regular cleaning of the kennel can also help to keep the air fresh and bad odors at bay.
No one likes to spend hours scrubbing the floors in the dog kennel, or washing out dirty, stained feed bowls. Invest in a kennel that has easy-to-clean features like smooth composite decking on the runs, or polyurea flooring on the interior. Removable dog food trays make for easy cleaning, and stainless steel food and water bowls can be washed easily and are resistant to stains. Proper drainage in a kennel makes for efficient cleaning by simply rinsing everything into the drain. Interior wash-down options in your kennel, like a wash tub or a hose, can make obtaining hot water and washing down the kennel interior a much easier job.
Best Kennel Sizes for Great Danes
What size kennel should you invest in for your Great Dane dog? It can be hard to know what the proper size kennel for Great Danes is, but if you are doubting if a kennel is large enough, it is wise to size up.

Our smallest kennels are still an ample 80 square feet, (8×10), and our largest kennels can house up to 16 dogs. Let us help you find the perfect kennel size.
