Here you can find the basic assembly instructions for our Signature Series Dog Kennels

The basic installation steps are always the same for our Signature-Series Kennels - regardless of your layout.
The only difference is the measurements between the posts.
Below you will find common layouts and the specific dimensions for them.

 

How to install your Signature Series Dog Kennels:

Kennel components:

Tools needed:

  • Chalk-line or line to mark out where you want the kennels.
  • Hammer Drill with 3/8 Masonry bit.
  • Hammer.
  • 1/2 inch socket or end-wrench.
  • 7/16 inch socket or end-wrench.
  • 3/8 inch socket or end-wrench.
  • Phillips Screwdriver.
  1. Mark the corner of the area you want the kennels to sit.
    • A chalk-line works great for this!
  2. Check the corners for square.
    • If you do not have a square - a simple measure-test can determine how square you are. See the downloadable instructions for complete details on how to measure for square.
  1. Anchor a post-foot in one corner.
  2. Measure to the next post.
    • We supplied a measure-stick with pre-marked holes that fit the top of the post-feet to make it easier!
  3. Anchor a second post-foot in place.
  4. Continue until all the post-feet are in place.
    • Once you get 4 post-feet in place, you can start to construct the rest of the kennel.
  5. Set the posts on the feet and bolt them into place.
  6. Install the skirt dust-cover.
  7. Bolt the panels to the posts.
    • Panels wider than 4ft will have 3 parts to them - be sure to check your printed instructions for more information.
    • The rubber gasket goes on the bottom - against the floor.
  8. Attach the hinge-bars to the posts.
    • The paw-prints should be at the TOP.
  9. Attach the header-piece to the posts.
  10. Drop the gate into the eye-bolts you want to act as the hinge.
    • The gate will not reach the other side yet - we have more pieces to add.
  11. Attach the latch-assembly to the other side of the gate.
  12. Attach the post-cap.
  1. Attach the gate safety screw.
    • This keeps the dogs from lifting the entire gate off the hinges.
  2. Attach the latch-lock to the top of the gate.
    • This keeps the dogs from lifting the latch while inside the kennel.
  1. Loosen the header-piece.
  2. Have someone PUSH the top of the LATCH-post.
  3. While pushing, have someone tighten the header-piece.
  1. Pull gate off the hinge-bars.
  2. Screw the TOP eye-bolt IN on the hinge-side.
  3. Screw the BOTTOM eye-bolt OUT on the hinge-side.
  4. Re-hang the gate.
  5. If needed-adjust the eye-bolts on the latch-side to match.

Our kennels can either be free-standing or use your existing walls as part of the kennel structure.

Using your walls can save you money - but only works if the walls are 'dog-proof'!
