Default Gonna have to put a roof on my kennel.

Magnum won't go in his dog house for some reason. I went out there this morning before work and he was curled up sleeping in the rain. I've got some tin. I'm gonna go get some 12 ft 2x4 this afternoon and lay them across the top. Then fasten them to the top rail of the kennel with big zip ties. Then nail the tin to them. Will a 2 inch slope be enough to shed the water?

You would think that they would like a nice warm bed instead of laying on the cold wet ground.

I had 2 beagles when I rabbit hunted alot, you would look out the back window when it was pouring down rain and they would be sitting on top of the dog house. Then again, these dog shit on top of the dog house and in there water bowl. But then again they were beagles.

I stopped at a rest stop on a trip to Ohio once, and watched on of them back there ass up to a concrete pole base and chit on the pole base. His 2 front legs were on the ground, and the back legs were on top of the pole base. Those two dogs were effed up in the head. I think I shocked them to much.

I've seen several labs that do this. I think mine has finally gotten where he goes in his house during the rain. If im home he'll sit by the gate.

Something you may want to think about is insulation. I ended up putting blue board under my roof and its about 10 degrees cooler in the summer under that thing now.

brandon, you might consider fabricating a metal roof support system...could build it out of conduit, or uni-strut. i would strongly consider using a center pole, to support the middle, as a 12 foot span is just too far w/ no support. scrap the idea about wood and zip ties...if the wood isnt locked together, its gonna twist and warp pretty quick. may be best to build a pole barn type shed over the concrete pad...you do have him on a pad, right?

No pad. I have old school hunting dogs. They live on the dirt.
