Our dog kennels offer an array of housing solutions for your beloved canine. Whether it is for a working or a domestic dog, we can offer a range of kennels which can be built to suit your individual needs.
Our day kennels are our smallest sized range; an integral kennel and hutch under one roof. Ideal for smaller breeds this range will also suit large dogs for short periods of time, such as whilst you’re out of the house for a couple of hours.
The boarding kennels are designed for those with working dogs; attractive barred runs with attached sleeping compartment all under one roof. The choice between an overhang to work under in the dry or an extended run with no overhang is your decision. Any size of building can be built to suit your requirements – please contact us for a quote.
Mesh galvanised pen dog run sections are ideal for modular kennels which can be added to time and time again. The standard height is 6’ with lengths increasing in multiples of 1’, door fronts (also 6’ high) start at 4’ wide, up to 8’. We also manufacture timber kennels to match this range.
Brooder huts & pen sections
Whatever scale of rearing you’re into, Vale Stables can offer you the right Brooder hut; starting at 6’x6’, right up to 16’x40’ – we offer a full range. Our buildings are designed to minimize your workload and be maintenance free. Designed with and without floors, we tailor for everyone’s opinions of disease limitation.
Pen sections and night sections can be made to your requirements or taken from stock sizes.
Our team will provide floor plans so that your builders can lay a concrete base (we can erect on other surfaces too – please discuss with our team). We do advise that you install one course of semi engineering bricks to the specification of the floor plan provided as this will hold the building out of any moisture and prolong its life. If you prefer, we can supply a galvanised steel plinth in place of bricks, or we can place your building straight onto concrete if required.
Our aim is to maintain our long-established reputation for top quality. We use only the best raw materials. We often win work by word of mouth recommendations which is why we always work hard to ensure all our customers are completely happy with the product they have chosen. We believe we can offer you a quality product at great value for money.
All our timber is sourced from Sweden and Siberia. The reason for this is simple; woodland in colder climates is very slow growing, this produces a denser timber with tight growth rings, in turn closer rings reduce shrinkage, twisting and splitting. All our timber is pressure treated with Tanalith ‘E (BS EN 335-1).
Since we first started building Dog Kennels we have lined our Onduline roofs with 11 OSB as we feel this to be essential in any building. Not only to prevent sagging, this lining also provides incredible strength within the structure. Vale Stables is quite unique in offering this as standard.
Onduline roofing can be ordered in black, green, red or brown and as mentioned above is always lined with OSB to prevent sagging and withstand strong winds. If looks are high on your agenda Asphalt shingle is particularly popular. However, top of the range are Cedar shingles which will be the envy of all who see them and with a lifetime of over 30 years are very reasonable value. Galvanised box profile and P6 Fibre cement are available on request.
We always advise guttering to the front of your building, whereas the back is more a matter of preference. Leaf guards are also available if required.
Delivery and installation
We manufacture all our timber buildings on site in our Warwickshire factory. Keeping a large stock of standard sized, complete timber buildings enables us to keep delivery times to a minimum. We can often produce bespoke panels within 10-14 days.
We offer a full installation service for all our timber buildings for customers throughout the whole of the UK.
