Standard Features of Our Luxury Dog Shelter Kennels

Since you have dogs coming to your facility and then leaving when they find their forever home, you need to be able to quickly and thoroughly clean their homes between occupants. You don’t want to pass disease from one dog to the next by not sanitizing correctly. You may also find that you’re short-staffed while the demands of caring for your dogs keep on increasing.

Keeping your dogs in commercial dog kennels for rescue shelters that are easy to maintain will help reduce your workload. You’ll also want a kennel that is built to last so you can avoid additional expenses in the long term. Our dog shelter kennels are all outfitted with standard features that make them top-quality.

Dog Shelter Kennels with Insulation


It’s essential that your pups are kept at a consistent and comfortable temperature. This is made easier to regulate with a commercial dog kennel that is fully insulated. We use R-13 Batten insulation for the walls and ceilings of our dog kennels for animal shelters. The floors of our buildings are insulated with R-13 closed-cell spray foam insulation. Make sure you also add the custom option of an AC/heater unit to keep your pups happy and healthy!

Cathedral Ceiling for Dog Shelter Kennels

Cathedral Ceiling

A lot of the dogs in your dog shelter kennel will come with a hard past. These pups need to be assured of safety and love to feel comfortable. One excellent way to do this is to provide a large, open, and welcoming space for them to call home. You don’t want to welcome new rescue dogs to a space that feels cramped and oppressive. The cathedral ceiling on all our commercial kennels creates an open and clean feeling space for your pups to thrive in.

Dog Shelter Kennels Q and A

We offer options for your kennel roofing! We believe that the roof of a kennel is a key part of the building, so we strive to provide you with a top-quality solution. Our standard commercial kennels are outfitted with a shingle roof. This provides a secure and durable roof over your dog’s head. If you want to upgrade your kennel roof, opt for a metal roof. This is a great choice for those in an area of high wind. We also offer a standing seam metal roof with a hidden fastener system. 

We firmly believe in the importance of using top-quality materials for the flooring in your kennel. Inside our commercial kennels designed for dog shelters, you’ll find our standard ⅝ Smartfloor coated with Poly-Urea. This choice ensures a durable and waterproof floor that can be easily maintained with simple cleaning routines. To provide insulation, we incorporate R-13 spray foam insulation into our floors. If you want to enhance comfort during colder seasons, we offer customization options such as adding radiant heat to keep your furry friends warm and cozy even in the harshest weather conditions.

For the outdoor runs in our grooming dog kennels, we choose composite decking, making it easy to hose down these areas. If you’re looking for an upgrade, consider the poly-urea flooring option for both the interior and exterior sections. Additionally, we provide the option to customize your kennel with a raised floor design, allowing for the addition of a wire run floor with a wash-down area underneath. This elevated kennel flooring upgrade promotes a cleaner and healthier environment for your dogs, contributing to their overall well-being.

The main difference between dog boarding and kennels is the duration of the stay. Kennels for dog boarding are used to house pets for short spans of time. These are used when the owners go on vacation when their pup isn’t able to go along. Dog boarding gives pet owners a place to leave their pups without having to worry about them being taken care of properly. On the other hand, pets will be in a dog shelter kennel for a longer period of time. The amount of time they spend at a dog shelter depends on the amount of time that it takes for these pups to find their forever home. It’s key that in that in-between stage, these pups have a safe and luxurious commercial kennel where they can stay comfortably.

Caged Dog Syndrome is a tragic condition in dogs. It’s caused by dogs being kept in too small spaces and not enough exercise. Dogs need plenty of space to run off their energy. If they don’t have adequate space, they can develop Caged Dog Syndrome which causes them to be scared, aggressive, anxious, and sometimes depressed.

With our deluxe commercial kennel, your pups will have space where they can get out in the fresh air and stretch their legs. It’s important that you have a fenced yard where your dogs can enjoy running around in the grass and playing with toys. When people think about kennels, they usually think of small, cramps, and dirty metal structures without a roof or floor. This isn’t what we think about! We think about a home for your canines that has all the deluxe features of your own home! Your dogs should have the best, and we’re here to help you design just that!

Kennels can be very stressful for dogs, especially if they’re coming from a rough situation. If kennels are cramped, noisy, or dirty, dogs will be affected by that and struggle to settle in. Our deluxe dog kennel options give you ways to add to the comfort of your kennel and create a place where your dogs can relax and feel at home.
