I raised many dogs over the years without the use of a kennel. I became a big believer of crate training or kennel training about a year after getting my pit bull. His separation anxiety was so bad that he would turn into the Tazmanian Devil. Once he was fully kennel trained life became so much more simple.
Do you have a pit bull that turns into a tornado when you aren’t home? Or maybe potties in the house during the night? Are you looking for a kennel but aren’t sure what to get? Hopefully I can help. There are a couple of things to think about when looking for a kennel for your pit bull:
It needs to be tall enough for your dog to stand up in.
It needs to be long enough for your dog to lay out and stretch in.
It needs to be wide enough for your dog to be able to comfortably turn around in.
It needs to be tough enough to handle any tantrums your dog might have while in it.
Pit Bull Dog Kennels
Petmate Sky Kennel
This crate is 40″L x 27″W x 30″H. It is made out of heavy-duty plastic here in the USA. The Petmate Kennel has 4 way ventilation. This crate features a vaulted door. It comes with food and water dishes. Even though this is a travel kennel, it’s very similar to the one that I used for my pit bull.
Ruff Tough Kennels Intermediate Double Door Side Entry Kennel
This crate was the first dog crate that Ruff Tough Kennels started to make. They are made in the USA. This kennel only weighs about 21 lbs, unlike the big metal crates. The inside dimensions are: 30″L x 21″W x 22″H.
Nynoi Dog pit bull Crate Kennel
This kennel is made out of strong steel. It is easy to clean up with it’s undercarriage tray. The overall size of this crate is: 43.3″L x 28.3″W x 37″H.
ProSelect Empire Dog Cage
This crate is extremely strong with reinforced 0.5″ diameter steel tubes and 20 gauge steel. The interior size of this crate is: 40 3/4″L x 28 1/8″W x 31 3/4″H. If your pup has an accident then clean up will be easy with it’s grated floor and tray. These cages were designed specifically to contain powerful dogs.
I went with a plastic kennel because I was afraid that my powerful chewer would chew through the poorly made fold up metal kennels that were around. I think I would have much preferred to have my boy in something like the ProSelct.
Even though some of these prices seem kinda steep, if you have already purchased a couple of crates just to have your pit bull chew through them, then maybe purchasing a more expensive kennel is what your pup needs.
Truly hope that these products help you find the perfect kennel for you and your pit bull. Let us know what you think!
