This dog kennel is dip treated during our manufacturing process. This involves applying a water based colourant to your garden building, protecting your shed whilst it is in storage and transit. However, it is important to note that this treatment is not a preservative. Therefore, your garden building will still require a high-quality timber preservative and waterproofing top coat as soon as possible after construction.

We work hard to design all of our garden buildings to adhere to the planning permission guidelines. However, we cannot guarantee that planning permission will not be required. Therefore, before constructing your garden building we advise checking with your local authorities.

A flat, level base is essential when building your new dog kennel. We recommend the following bases; concrete, slab paving, ground-level bearers or a wooden frame.

Prior to building your dog kennel be sure to check your base is level in both directions. If the base of your dog kennel is not level when it is constructed it will cause the building to twist and warp with the natural movement of the timber. Therefore, it is really important to adjust your base accordingly to achieve this before constructing your garden building.

For more information on how to build a suitable base take a look at our handy guide. - How to Build a Shed Base.
