Many dog owners choose dirt simply because it is what they have available. However, it usually isn't a good idea to use dirt as the flooring for the entire kennel or run. If the run or kennel is in an area that gets wet, the dirt quickly becomes a muddy mess. Mud mixes with the dog feces and you have the start of a cesspool that your dog is going to be lying in and playing in. Unless it is just one part of the dog run and can be kept dry, dirt is not a good idea, and it can even be unhealthy for your pet.

If you have been toying with the idea of building your dog/dogs a nice kennel outside then you may want to think about a few options before starting out. One of the most important considerations when building a dog kennel is the material you use for flooring. Of course there will be many other things to think about such as the type of shelter you are going to provide from the elements and things of this nature but the floor is very important as this is what your dog will be sitting, lying and standing on all the time. Some of the following suggestions may help you to choose one that fits your needs as well as your budget. Dirt Obviously the cheapest flooring you can use is the dirt that is already in your yard. This is fine but there are some things to keep in mind. Dirt will quickly turn into mud when it rains and this will leave your pooch sitting in a mud puddle. Doesn

Many dog owners use gravel or sand in kennels because it looks neat, drains well and is relatively inexpensive. Though those are definitely pluses, stone materials are not ideal kennel surfaces for several reasons. First, stone conducts heat rather efficiently. That makes it cold to lie upon in winter and hot in summer. Second, sharp particles of gravel and sand can stick to your dog's paws and cause cuts or bruises. Third, loose materials invite bored dogs to dig, so eventually dirt and weeds mix with the neat gravel floor and morph into the unkempt, dirt-floored kennel you were trying to avoid in the first place.

Grass gives a nice, natural substrate for any outdoor kennel or run. It is comfortable for the dog to lie on and stays cool in the summer. It is inexpensive to lay down sod or grow from seed and easy to rake up feces. However, it does not stand up to the dog that loves to dig and will not survive great amounts of dog urine. Grass is best in large dog runs or used as part of the run. In small areas it is not likely to survive very long.

Beyond expense and containing your dog, there are other factors to consider before choosing which flooring to use in your outdoor kennel or run. You will want something that is easy to clean, comfortable for your pet and easy to maintain. How the floor looks also may be important to you if you're setting up a backyard run. If one type of flooring isn't meeting your needs, you can also consider using more than one type of flooring in the kennel or run.

In many ways concrete is an ideal kennel floor surface — for humans. It is durable, weatherproof, easy to clean and neat-looking. It's uncomfortable for your dog, though. Concrete, like stone, heats and cools with the weather, makes a hard bed to lie upon and can abrade soft foot pads. You can fix the problems and retain the benefits however, by pouring the concrete pad so that it slopes slightly, for good drainage, and by building at least one raised platform of wood or furnishing rubber or other padded surfaces for your dog's comfort. As an alternative to a solid slab, consider making a partial floor of concrete pavers planted between with a durable ground cover like elfin thyme or Irish moss to help mitigate temperature extremes and make a more comfortable surface.

In Austin’s opinion, the possible disadvantages of this remote location include barking control, which is more difficult because the long distance makes a trip to the kennel for a correction time-consuming and inconvenient. Keeping the kennel clean is also a greater chore, requiring more time and effort as well as making a special water source easily available.
