Material and size
If you are looking for a wooden dog kennel, it might be more expensive than a plastic one. You should think about which is most suited for you and your dog. Will the kennel be outside? Will it be inside? Will it be sheltered?
Obviously the smaller the dog kennel, the cheaper it is. This isn't where you should decide to save money. Your dog kennel should be big enough for your do to be happy whilst inside it. A dog kennel that's too small is cruel and may lead to your dog being very unhappy.
If you aren't sure what size to buy, just ask a member of staff in a pet shop. It may also depend on how long your dog will spend in the kennel too. If it's just whilst you pop out for lunch then it may not need to be as spacious as when your dog is spending hours in there.
Quality it most important
Most important of all is the quality of your dog kennel. You shouldn't sacrifice quality for a few pounds here and there. The kennel you choose should be solid, hard wearing, spacious and safe. This is imperative.
Finding a cheap dog kennel shouldn't be difficult. Just shop around for the best deals, but don't sacrifice quality. Happy bargain hunting and let us know how you get on!
