How to building your own dog kennel KBD

For quite some time we’ve been using a homemade kennel that we built about five or six years ago and it has been great for our dogs. But time has left a few marks and as it was the first homemade kennel we’ve built, some things could definitely have been improved. So this time we come well prepared in terms of equipment and material.

A normal dog kennel works great for Karelian bear dogs

First off I want to say that it is fully doable to hold your Karelian bear dog in a normal dog kennel. What made us go with a homemade solution is because they tend to be a bit expensive. At least if you want a larger more stable unit. First, we were thinking about getting the K9 which should be one of the best dog kennels according to Florida Dog Mag, but we came to the conclusion that the price tag was just too expensive and we could build our dogs a luxury home with that budget. So we started to look at a bunch of different chain link dog kennels but most of them just seemed a bit too weak and unstable for our dogs.

Preparation is key to a successful result


So we started preparing ourselves by buying the material we needed and lending tools from our neighbors and friends. Luckily some of them asked if they could lend us a helping hand in building the thing, and of course, we happily said yes. This is the type of things we set out to find:

This is the material we used:

Rust proof steel link fence

  • Wood
  • Steel Wire
  • Metal roof
  • Locking mechanism
  • A lot of screws
  • Anchors

The tools needed:

  • Saw
  • Screwmachine
  • Screwdriver

The kennel building process was simple

Build away!

We set out to build a somewhat large enclosure for our dogs but we soon found out that we might have been counting a bit too high for what we actually needed. Sometimes bigger isn’t always better. So after we put out all the poles we figured that to decrease the two poles in the back by 3 feet so that we got down to around 12×14 feet instead of 15×14 which were way too big in my opinion.

After that, we started putting up the poles in all 4 edges of our somewhat square formed kennel. We then anchored them with cement anchors which should be able to withhold a heavy storm or two. Then comes the funny part, creating the door and somewhere for you to fasten it. It is a joke by the way. Before we started it felt kinda of simple, a wooden frame, two more wooden poles attached to the ground with a plank on top. The other story is that it wasn’t simple. For the door to be able to open and close, putting a lock on it etc was probably the most annoying with the whole construction. I highly recommend you to find an easier way, even though it feels much simpler now when you’ve done it once. Probably won’t take even 40% of the time it did the first time.

Well, enough with the freaking door. The time had come to untangle and start putting up all the steel wire that will now hold our dogs inside the kennel. Choose something rust-proof for the sake of it, the weather is harsh sometimes and having a kennel that starts to rust after a year or two will probably not make it as cost effective as it can be.

After that, the only thing left to do was to attach the roof. We tightened it to the fence with some steel wire and then just screw it into the wooden poles standing in each corner, simple as can be. The inner poles were about 3 inches higher than the front poles which give the roof a little incline so that water runs right off into the side. There we have a little incline on the yard too so the water won’t find its way into the kennel.

Building completed. We have our kennel and it’s looking good even though its home made by some amateurs and friends.


Sometimes scientists just call them as they see them. This is an illustration of an extinct creature known as a bear dog.

Headless Valley is a particular area (Lat: 61.25 Long: – 124.5) of the South Nahanni River Valley (Canada) said to incorporate a lost world finish with tropical timberlands, lethally savage locals, and a bunch of baffling animals going from Bear Dogs to Sasquatch. The legend of Headless Valley is abnormal in that it is genuinely cutting edge, having started in 1908, after the revelation of two executed mine workers in the locale of the South Nahanni River. Since that time, a few different vanishings and homicides have been recorded in the locale.

In the Nahanni National Park of Northwest Canada lies the Nahanni River. The range is just available by vessel or plane and is home to numerous common marvels, for example, sinkholes, fountains and a waterfall twofold the span of Niagara Falls. Master Tweeds Muir (John Buchan), creator of The 39 Steps once said of the Valley: “It’s a favored place that old clocks dream about. Some said the “valley was loaded with gold and some said it was hot as damnation attributable to the warm springs. It had a mischievous name as well, for no less than twelve people went in and never turned out’ Indians said it was the home of demons.”

The 200 Mile glut has gotten to be scandalous, because of various abhorrent passings and numerous vanishings, winning itself the creepy name, The Valley of the Headless Men. Oddities initially started in 1908, when the Macleod Brothers came prospecting for gold in the valley. Nothing was heard or seen of the siblings for an entire year until their executed bodies were found almost a stream. After nine years, the Swiss miner Martin Jorgenson was beside surrender to the Valley when his headless carcass was found. In 1945, an excavator from Ontario was found in his resting pack with his head cut from his shoulders. While doubters of an obscure power at work in the Valley would put the grizzly mutilations down to quarreling gold miners or unfriendly Indians, there are other abnormal happenings in the range which add to the valleys otherworldliness. The wildly eminent Naha tribe essentially vanished from the zone a couple of years before the main passings. Different Indians of the region have evaded the Valley for a considerable length of time, guaranteeing an obscure wickedness frequents it. Numerous parts of the valley stay unexplored, and there are stories the Valley holds a passageway to the Hollow Earth. Others trust the Valley is home to a lost world, with lavish greenery and a tropical atmosphere, because of the hot springs producing warm air, and undiscovered gold mines and meandering yetis. While a safe house for Bigfoot stays far-fetched, one thing is for sure, something bizarre prowls in the Nahanni Valley.Bear-pooches were identified with both the bear family and the puppy family. They looked like cross breeds amongst bears and pooches. There was once a wide range of animal categories in the group of bear-pooches, however then they started to cease to exist. The latest fossils we have from the New World date to around two million years back, and in the old world the latest are around ten thousand years of age.’

There is some proof that the bear-pooches may have survived any longer than this in some remote territories. One animal groups may even be alive today, if you can trust certain legends and sightings that have originated from some remote, frosty valleys on the fringe amongst Canada and Alaska. The waheela is the name of a colossal wolf-like brute that has occupied Indian legends from this zone for quite a while. It is depicted as resembling a wolf, yet much bigger and with a heavier form. It is ascribed with extraordinary forces, and it is said to be in charge of the numerous strange passings that have happened in Nahanni Valley, otherwise called “Headless Valley” because the general population who kicked the bucket here bafflingly all had missing heads.’ If the main thing we needed to go on was these legends, we might have the capacity to disregard the waheela. However, there are additionally splendidly conventional sightings made by common Americans. A workman depicted this creature as resembling a wolf on steroids. He evaluated its stature at three and a half feet at the shoulder. The biggest wolves ever recorded have been three feet, two inches tall at the shoulder. However, Goliaths of this size are genuinely uncommon. If the repairman’s gauge was right, then this creature was no less than four inches taller than the greatest wolf we know of. Different points of interest varied from a genuine wolf. Its head was excessively expensive for that of a wolf, and its construct was too overwhelming, nearly bear-like. It had immaculate white hide that was particularly long.’ Other reports concur with the general depiction above, yet include more detail. The waheela, regardless of the way that it is bigger than a wolf, has shorter legs than a wolf. The great shoulder tallness originates from its monstrous body rather than its legs. Its ears are littler than a wolf’s ears, and the tracks demonstrate toes set more distant far from each other than in a wolf’s tracks. The waheela is never found in packs, and they remain in the coldest, most aloof situations of the outrageous north, favoring regions where there are few individuals. The territory where the waheela is located is a standout amongst the most remote places on the planet. The way that these terrains are moderately unexplored implies that there is a reasonable possibility of finding new sorts of creature there, maybe including one that should have ceased to exist ten thousand years prior. Then again, this may very well be another of those legend-loaded districts that don’t work out when it is completely explored. Neighborhood tribes additionally report that the Nahanni Valley is invaded with shrewdness spirits, and certain different legends ascribe the headless bodies to enormous hairy monsters looking like the yeti. With bipedal shaggy humanoids and massive wolves being located in a similar zone and rebuked for the same rough passings, it may likewise be that we have werewolf convictions being tossed in with the general mishmash also, to make things much all the more confounding.
