The Cottageview Dog Kennel is an attractive option that will hold most types of dogs. The welded wire mesh is heavy duty enough to hold most dog breeds. It is coated with a polyester powder coat finish over the top of galvanized steel. This provides two layers of corrosion resistance to help the kennel survive the elements. The included sunblock shade cover will help to keep your pet cool and out of the sun. The dimensions of the cottageview kennel also make it well suited for areas with tight quarters, such as a basement, garage, deck or large family room. It can be expanded using the Cottageview Expansion Panels also sold on Petco.com. The kennel is easy to assemble and only requires a 1/2" Wrench. Total assembly time is typically between 15-30 minutes. This kennel may not be well suited for extra large breeds. The welded wire mesh is approx. 2"x4".
