This is a great dog kennel unit, so good in fact, I own two of them and here’s a few reasons why…One of the biggest draws is the EZ Loader’s high-density polymer construction, it’s UV safe and can handle winter’s bitter cold making it an indoor or outdoor dog or hunting dog box. Beyond the polymer shell itself, the heavy-duty welded doors are powder coated and feature stainless-steel hardware, when it’s time to clean it… just hose it out- there’s nothing to rust. The optional kennel door cover kits for the wintertime keep warmth in and provide plenty of ventilation for a dog whether they’re asleep or still panting hard after a run. The bottom sill of the door is a little higher than other dog kennels, this great at keeping in straw bedding or Lion Country Supply’s Red Cedar Shavings.
