Re: Outside kennels, what would you do different

Pour your concrete pad about a foot bigger(on all sides) then your kennels-- that way you can run your lawn mower tires on the concrete -- keeping grass and weeds from growing up in the fence. Also have bottom bar of the kennel elevated about 2", so you can wash the waste out under the fence.

If you start useing the e-collar when he starts to go in on the birds you will get a dog that blinks birds to avoid being shocked. He'll try to avoid birds so he doesn't get shocked.
