- Frequently Asked Questions About The Dog House Kennel Combination:
Question: How is the house shipped to my house?
Answer: Since the kennel system is so large it has to be constructed in panels and then assembled when it reaches its new home. All the panels are secured on a shipping pallet, then covered and then transported by a freight truck.
Which makes the free shipping feature a big deal since these dog house kennels are too large to ship by standard UPS or FedEx. Consider that on average the freight charge to ship these houses is $400 to $600.00 minimum.

Answer: Yes we have done custom work for dog owners over the years and in almost all cases we have been able to fulfill the request, as long as it doesn’t require a complete redesign. Just call or email us with your request and we can give you a quote.
