FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW MUCH DO YOUR KENNELS COST?
Just like no two dogs are the same, no two kennels are the same. We make every kennel unique to you and your dogs needs and wants. With that, no two prices are the same either. Our pricing starts at $450 for standard kennels and $700 for premium kennels.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE IN STANDARD AND PREMIUM KENNELS?
Standard kennels are a cost-efficient way to upgrade the look of your dog's kennel. Standard materials include pine, poplar and other lighter woods. Standard dog kennels come with standard pocket hole joinery. We do our best to put pocket holes in areas that are not visible but may still be visible from some angles.
Premium kennels are made to last! We use hardy woods, such as solid oak, maple, walnut and other premium woods that best suit your home and your style. These materials are more durable than a standard kennel which shows less wear over time. We use higher end joinery for our premium dog kennels. This means that we use hardware-free techniques that create the strongest joints in woodworking.
WHAT COLOR OPTIONS DO I HAVE FOR MY CUSTOM PIECE?
We offer, both, stain and paint options to complete your custom piece. Varathane stain is included in our up-front pricing. Behr Marquee paint is an additional $125, which covers the cost of the paint, additional labor and extra required materials to complete the project.

WHAT IF MY DOG HAS AN ACCIDENT INSIDE THEIR KENNEL?
Accidents happen! Fortunately, every kennel that we make, we put 6 coats of clear-coat polyurethane. This ensures that if your dog does have an accident inside their kennel, the moisture will not absorb into the wood. This makes for easy cleanup!
WHAT IS THE TURNAROUND TIME FOR MY KENNEL?
Our turnaround time varies based on the number of orders we have in the queue. Our current turnaround time is about 8-10 weeks from proof approval.
HOW DOES PAYMENT WORK?
We require a deposit to start the design of your kennel. Typically, a 50% deposit is made to put your order into queue. The remaining balance is due upon completion and prior to pickup or delivery. Any add-ons or extra features added to your design after the agreed upon price, the additional amount will be added to the remaining balance of your kennel.
Payment plans are available if needed. The full amount of the kennel is due prior to pickup or delivery.
