Here is some helpful advice to keep your new kennel looking great!
Your dog kennel will arrive treated with an animal-friendly base coat of wood preservative and arrives as coloured in the images on our website.
We recommend that you treat your product with a high-quality animal friendly varnish or wood preservative within the first month and/or before it comes into contact with any heavy rain and that you re-treat your coop regularly to maintain the applied preservative and water repellent properties.
Please make sure that you use non-toxic animal-friendly products.
We recommend the kennel is positioned in an area that is well protected and not exposed to the elements, particularly strong sunshine or heavy winds. This is both for the well-being of the inhabitant and to prolong the life of the product.
Particular care must be taken to avoid areas of strong wind as this could upturn the kennel and result in injury and potential damage to the kennel or surrounding items. For this reason, we recommend that it is placed in a sheltered location.
Our kennel is designed to provide as safe as possible of an environment for the dog. We can only do so much when manufacturing the kennel to help with this and ensure the well-being of the inhabitants. The remaining precautions rest with ensuring the kennel is assembled correctly and how it is positioned in your garden.
The kennel should be checked daily for signs of damage and repaired immediately if required.
If is important that time is spent with your dog to get them used to the new kennel. A bored, unstimulated or unsupervised dog can do a lot of damage by chewing.
