Which dog run panel should you use ?


Standard 8cm panels are ideal for most dogs. The bars prevent dogs from standing up, and they cannot be climbed. Bar panels are also supplied with 5cm gap, which is better for smaller breeds. Whilst a 5cm gap panel will be heavier it is not intrinsically more secure. The bars in panels are inserted into the outer frame and tack welded to hold them in place, so the amount of weld is not a critical factor.

For aggressive dogs and giant breeds there are other options – 50 x 50 mesh and solid or ¾ solid panels.

Mesh has the advantage that it cannot be chewed through or separated as bars, but it can be climbed and a heavy dog can damage the mesh and itself if it throws itself against the mesh.

It is possible to specify heavy duty panels. Standard panels are in a frame 25 x 25 with bars 16mm in diameter made of metal 0.8mm thick. These can be upgraded to professional frames 30 x 30, with thicker metal.

We recommend that before purchased you look at the forums relating to your breed and listen to the experience and advice of people in your breed.

Effective containment is a function of behaviour and security. A dog which is left untended, denied human contact and without toys will be more likely to attempt escape and so we always recommend close monitoring of dogs in runs, and the training of dogs to be confident, comfortable and happy in their runs.
