The kennel itself is comprised of 16 individual runs. When the kennel was designed, it was built atop a concrete slab and constructed of cinder blocks which were insulated to assist with temperature control. The concrete Pad slopes down on both sides from the center of the building to allow easy cleaning and removal of waste. From the floor up, the first four feet of each run is constructed of block. This prevents the dogs from fence fighting and insures intimidation isn't taking place. The block walls provide a more sanitary environment since waste cannot be washed from one kennel into the next.
