Animal Kennels: thinking about winter

With winter just around the corner we need to make sure that our animals are protected from the bitter cold. If your cats or dogs spend a lot of their time outdoors or if you leave them outside of the house when you go out then kennels or another safe and enclosed structure is essential.

Kennels provide a safe space for your pet to crawl into when it is raining and when it is cold. If your animal is going to be spending a lot of their time outside then it is a good idea to leave their food and water bowls close to their kennel and also leave a dog blanket or a cushion inside of the kennel to add comfort and warmth. If you have more than one animal you may want to get each of them their own kennel or you could opt for a larger size kennel to fit both animals – that is of course if they get along well and are used to being in such close proximity to each other.

Kennels provide good protection from rain, wind and cold weather and will give your pets a cosy place to snuggle up in while they are outdoors.
