Panel Dog Kennels & Individual Panels

Standard Dog Kennel Panels (read this article to learn about this new complete line of Standard Dog Kennel Panels.)

 

 

These 2 pictures are an example of a custom kennel job recently finished. These 15 kennels are 4' wide by 13' long and 6' 2'' tall. They are built in units of 3 kennels per unit. They have a full wire panel roof. Each cage has a key-locking door latch and all are keyed alike for convenience. They will house Labs from all over the country being obedience trained and field trained at Mad River Kennels, in Ferris Texas. The dogs are trained daily and their owners are free to come on weekends to work with their dogs on this beautiful 50 acre property. It has 9 ponds in which to practice their water work and plenty of fields for their land work.

Introduction:

Cheek's Custom Cages is pleased to announce the completion of a new line of Standard Dog Kennel Panels. This is a mix and match line of Dog Kennel Panels that can be combined in an infinite number of ways to produce the exact configuration that you have in mind.
Top of new panels

The wall panels are all 74" tall:

The standard panels are available in 4', 8', and 12' wide.

There are two 4' panels available. One is without a door, to be used as a back or side or divider. The other has a 4' x6' door.

There are three 8' panels available. One is without a door, to be used as a back or side or divider. The second panel has one door, for making the 8' cage a single cage. The third panel has two doors, for making a divided 8' cage.

There are four 12' panels available. One is without a door, to be used as a back or side or divider. The second panel has one door, for a single cage. The third has two doors for a double cage. The fourth has three doors for making a triple cage.

In addition to these wall panels there are four roof panels.

By combining these into their simplest configurations, you can build 27 different single cages, 18 different double cages, and 9 different triple cages. Optional roof panels are available for all of these different kennels except for 2 single cages (the span is too great for these two cages to have a roof).

The panels come standard with 2"x2" 12 guage galvanized wire:

The 2"x2" 12 gauge galvanized wire is suitable for most applications. It is good for small dogs that don't have the power or inclination to chew up the wire. It is also good for larger dogs that are not inclined to try to escape at any cost. It is our most popular wire size for most kennels.

We can of course build your kennels on a custom basis and use any wire that is available to us. For very tough dogs such as Pit Bulls, we suggest 1"x1" 12 gauge galvanized wire. For a Bull Mastif we would recommend 1"x1" 10 gauge galvanized wire.  All of the PVC coated wire can be used for these panels as well.

We do not charge more for a special order. It may cost more due to the wire used, but we do not add a surcharge. We do need to quote you on any changes from the standard options however, since it will change the price one way or the other.

Construction of the Panels:

The panel frames are built of 1"x1" steel tubing that has been triple galvanized both inside and out for superior rust resistance. This type of tubing will last three times as long as regular steel tubing.
The welded joints are ground down for a good appearance and coated with a cold galvanize product. Then the wire is attached securely by means of special clips that we manufacture for this purpose. Each wall panel has 1 ½" legs at the bottom of the panel in order to keep the bottom bar from being on the ground and the panel off of the ground. This is for two reasons. First, it keeps the bar from being on and in moisture all of the time, preventing premature rusting out. Secondly, it allows the owner to wash out under the panels at all times, in order to keep a very clean environment. All of the corners are square instead of rounded (as in many chain link panels), causing a tight corner without spaces for small puppies to escape or get a head stuck trying to escape.

All of the panels that have doors come equipped with a key-locking door latch. If you have multiple doors they can all be keyed alike for your convenience. In fact, if you have dog kennels, bird aviaries, monkey cages, etc. from us, they can all be keyed alike.

Assembly:

The panels are easily assembled by means of special clamp kits we make for this purpose. The clamp kit used for this is what we call the 180degree clamp. With this style the two 1" steel tubes overlap each other,flat to flat. The clamp kit attaches them to each other in-line.

 

The clamp kits come with a carriage bolt and wing nut. In most cases, you can put the wing nut inside the cage or outside the cage. But occasionally it will only work one way due to hinges, etc.
It is also possible to replace the wing nuts with nylon lock nuts if you prefer. They require a few more tools to assemble, but will not loosen up on you in the future. In some cases they will solve a tight fit problem where the wing nut is concerned.

NOTE:
Each panel comes with two clamp kits. If you are just building a single kennel with no roof and dividers, this will be the correct number of kits. If you are adding dividers or roof panels, please be sure to order 6 additional kits for each roof panel and 2 additional kits for each divider.

If the base for the kennel is going to be a concrete pad, we recommend using a concrete drive rivet and an angle bracket on some of the panels, to ensure that the dogs do not slide it over a period of time, and to add greater strength to it.

 

In most cases, a single, double, or triple kennel can be assembled in 1 to 3 hours by two people.

NOTE:
When considering how large to build your slab, or how many units will fit on an existing slab, it is important to know that the size of the cage is inside dimensions. Due to the way the kennels go together, the space needed is about 3" wider, and deeper than the stated size of the kennel. So, if you are going to put 4 single, double, or triple cages together add 12" to the width and 3" to the depth of the row.

Economy:

There are three ways to save money on these kennels.

First, buying a 2 hole, or 3 hole kennel is cheaper than buying 2 or 3 of the same size single kennels.

Secondly, when adding units together to make a string of kennels, each additional unit (whether it be a single, double, or triple) will be significantly cheaper than the first unit, because it needs one less panel, the dividing panel that the previous cage already provides. This is due to the fact that the cages share the common dividing panel. In the price tables below, the additional units are referred to as Add-On units.

Thirdly, if you are buying a large group of kennels at one time, we offer a percentage discount based upon the size of the order.

So, for example, if you needed 10 4'x8' kennels, the cheapest way to buy them would be to get 1 12'x8' triple kennel (this would be the first 3 4'x8' kennels) and two 12x8 Add-Ons, and 1 single 4x8 Add-On

Panels vs. Kits:

In the price tables to follow, you will find the prices for individual panels on one table, and you will find the prices for the various size kennel kits on the other table. The price is the same if you order by panel or by kits. We have listed the KENNEL KITS first because most people will want to order by kit number. First listed is the 2"x2" wire KENNEL KITS. Following this will be the Price Table for the 2"x2" INDIVIDUAL PANELS.

This makes it possible to order extra dividers or fronts and backs later when you may want to reorganize the kennel in the future. Also, you may want to order the kits without roofs, but later decide that some or all need to have the roof panels. There is no monetary penalty for ordering them later.

This is a complex section that we have tried our best to make understandable. If you have any questions or difficulties deciding what would be the best for your situation, or how to do it the cheapest way, please don't hesitate to call our toll-free number and talk to us, or email us at
