Commercial Dog Kennels

Your dogs are important. You understand the effort and time investment needed to raise happy, healthy puppies AND keep adult dogs safe and comfortable. We want to help you in providing the best housing possible for your dogs and puppies. Optimal care for your pack doesn't have to be all-consuming. This commercial dog kennel features a raised floor allows you to put heat under the indoor boxes creating a warm floor for whelping dogs and young puppies. From easy-wash surfaces, heated floors and air conditioning to hands-free watering systems - we have what you need for your dogs.

Custom dog kennels for sale are another Horizon Structures specialty. We know that every dog owner has unique needs and we cater to making a commercial dog kennel that will work for you. In keeping with today's do-it-yourself trends, we also offer supplies for the dog owner who wants to build, or refurbish, his own kennel. Our craftmanship and quality construction, along with carefully chosen accessories, upgrades and components, will insure years of performance and satisfaction.

Horizon Structures offers 2 affordable upgrades to increase the utility of your pre-fab dog kennel.  They are the Feed Room and the Loft.  What’s the difference and why would you choose one over the other?  Or, both?

Many of our larger kennels come with a feed room already built into the design.  For those kennels that don’t, you may want to consider adding it.  To add a feed room, we convert an interior dog box area into an ‘open’ work space by removing the wire panels and dog door.  This modification accomplishes several things:

  • When you open the (interior) dog box door, the dog cannot escape the kennel if the ‘man’ door is closed.
  • You could easily use this space to add a grooming table, handy utility sink, hot water heater, feed bins, storage shelves – you name it
  • NOTE:  available for any of the kennels except the 4x8

Capacity: 16

The Loft option is a convenient way to add more storage or workspace to any custom dog kennel.  We accomplish this by reducing the full-height interior dog box to a 4’ high dog box and adding a poly ‘shelf’ or cover over it.

Use this “shelf” as a work space.  Or, use it to store food, toys and supplies.  If you run a grooming salon, boarding facility or doggie daycare, this area is a great place to keep each individual dog’s food, toys, leash, bedding, etc. organized and in close proximity to the dog it belongs to.

Another benefit of the loft is that it makes it easier for a dog to self-regulate the temperature of his “den” by reducing the size of the space.

If you recall, we previously discussed all the ways Horizon Structures prefab dog kennels are built to keep moisture and water OUT.  Now, we want to talk about bringing water IN… in a controlled fashion of course!  Having running water available in your kennel is not only convenient – it’s absolutely essential.  Fresh water for the dogs to drink and water for you to use in daily cleanup is vital.

12x22 Traditional Kennel

Capacity: 4

  • "Clay" Vinyl Siding

At minimum, we highly recommend the pre-installed hose port.  It’s hard to put a value on having water conveniently at your fingertips right INSIDE the kennel!  So much better than standing outside in the rain/snow/sleet/dark filling a bucket of water from a far-away faucet or dragging a hose across the yard… reeling it up when your finished… or, leaving it lay until you need it again, then mowing around it… tripping over it… Ugh!  Our hose port is located INSIDE the kennel and allows easy connection to any hose.  If you have a hot water heater in the building, you can access hot AND cold water through the hose port.

You may also want to consider our stainless steel water nibble.  The wall mounted bracket allows dogs constant access to clean, fresh water.  The bracket is height adjustable so it works for any breed – short or tall.  The trigger and valve are corrosion resistant 304 stainless steel.  Water on-demand through the nibble eliminates dirty, messy bowls and spills.  Dogs learn to use it almost immediately.  We mount it over the (interior) dog box (optional) floor drain to catch any water dribbling onto the floor.

12x26 Traditional Box Kennel

Capacity: 7

  • "Clay" LP Smartside Painted Siding
  • "Hunter Green" Trim
  • "Weatherwood" Shingles

Shown with optional Glasbord™ in dog runs, (4) 24'' dog doors & 24x36 windows.


Regarding water on the floor… with dogs, that’s inevitable.  As mentioned earlier, our standard polyurea floor coating more than handles spills, dog waste and clean up.  If you want an extra layer of protection in your custom dog kennel, we have several options available.

Add a stainless steel wash down tray.  It’s perfectly sized to the dimensions of the interior dog box, easy to clean and lasts a lifetime.

Other advantages include:

  • Deters aggressive diggers
  • Prevents those dogs from digging the drain out of the floor
  • Lifetime guarantee
  • Recommend using WITH our rubber mat

However, as good as they are, the trays have a few ‘cons’ to consider as well…

  • When used without the mat, the smooth metal tray’s cold surface provides no traction and there is the possibility a dog could be injured
  • Moisture could build up between the tray and the kennel floor causing issues
  • Recommended mats are heavy and difficult to maneuver making thorough cleaning difficult

12x24 Traditional Kennel

Capacity: 4

  • Painted LP Smartside Siding:  "Buckskin"
  • "White" Trim
  • "Charcoal" Shingles
  • Four Windows

Shown with optional deluxe dog doors.


Despite the drawbacks, there are certain situations where the tray and mat are indispensable.  Our 1” thick rubber kennel mats provide a durable, textured, non-slip surface that is comfortable for dogs and resistant to bacteria.  Pre-cut and installed at our shop for a perfect fit, custom sizes are also available with, or without, a cut-out for a drain.

A kennel drain is another vitally important option.  Our corrosion-resistant drains are made of 304 or 316 stainless steel.  At 40” long x 4” wide x 3” deep, a single drain can easily be shared across 2 kennels.  Drains installed in multi-dog kennels are all connected to a single 1”-1 ½” PVC pipe.  This pipe runs under the floor of the kennel and empties on the gable end.  Each drain comes with a ‘key’ to lift the metal faceplate in case of a clog.

12x22 Traditional 6 Box Kennel

Capacity: 4

  • Painted LP Smartside Siding:  "Chestnut"
  • "Black" Trim
  • "Charcoal" Shingles

Shown with optional 11-Lite prehung door, 23x36 double pane windows & raised floor inside and out.


Drains are typically installed at the back of the interior box by the dog door rather than in the aisle.  We’ve found, when hosing down the kennel, it’s most effective to direct the water towards the outer wall.  The wall acts as a backstop and channels the water into the drain.  If the drain were located in the feed aisle or walkway, one would be ‘chasing’ water all over the kennel with a broom in an attempt to channel it toward the drain!

One more thing about the kennel drains… Remember the polyurea floor we talked about earlier?  Here’s another application where it really proves its worth.  This heavy-duty floor coating acts as a fantastic seal between the drain and the subfloor of the kennel.  It does a terrific job of keeping water entering the drain from seeping between the drain flange and the subfloor of the kennel.

Many of the prefab dog kennels pictured on our site show dog food and water dishes both inside in the dog box and outside in the dog run.  Each chew-proof stainless steel bowl has a generous 3-quart capacity.  They’re sanitary and easy to clean.

You may be thinking this is a frivolous option and that you’ll get your own bowls.  Hold that thought… Look closely and you’ll see that there’s more to these bowls then first meets the eye.  We’ve modified the panel – whether it be the run divider or the kennel gate – and included a welded on metal frame to hold the bowls in place.  Look even closer and you see a metal spring holding each bowl tightly in place.

Feeding time just got a whole lot easier!

Accessing the bowls from OUTSIDE the kennel = no more “fighting” hungry, rambunctious dogs!

No more spilled food or water = Reduce mess and waste!

Feeding time is FAST.  Simply go down the aisle with food and water – 1,2,3.  Everyone’s fed and watered in a snap.  No retrieving bowls from kennels.  All bowls held firmly in place – no tipping, sliding or slopping!

Clean up is quick, too.  Just unfasten the spring, the bowls slide out of the frame.  Snap back in just as quickly!
