FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

If you have a question about our dog runs and dog pens here is the place to find the answer. If we have missed anything please don't hesitate to call or email.
  • Absolutely nothing, some people call them dog runs and others dog pens. They are also sometimes referred to as dog cages. Throughout this web site we refer to them as either runs, pens or cages but it all amounts to the same thing.
  • No, they are extremely simple to erect. Each panel is light enough to be handled by one person and they are joined together with two bolts which are supplied. A typical 2.5m x 2.5m pen can be erected in around 30 minutes. No special tools or skills are required; all you will need is a spanner to tighten the bolts.
  • Our dog runs / pens / cages can be erected on any surface. You can put them on a prepared concrete base or simply set them onto tarmac or grass.
  • No, the dog pens / runs / cages are self supporting so they don't need to be fixed to the ground. If for some reason you wish to fix them down, we can supply brackets on request.
  • Yes, the locking bar has a hole for a padlock.
  • No, all our dog runs / pens / cages are hot dip galvanised which means they are protected against rust for at least 40 years.
  • If you would like your dog run to be a particular colour, we can arrange to have it powder coated. This would be by special order and would cost approximately £64 extra per panel. So a coloured standard panel would cost around £119 and a gate panel £153. Please call or email for a price.
  • Yes, our dog runs / pens / cages can be used for many different purposes. They can be used in commercial and industrial settings to provide a secure storage cage for example to store gas bottles.
  • We don't generally make one-off dog runs. However if you are a commercial kennel or need a large quantity we can quote, just get in touch.
  • No, our standard panels and gate panels have been designed so they can be used anywhere in the dog run. You can use them to create any size of run / pen / cage to suit your needs.
  • Yes. Whether you choose your own combination or order one of our dog run packs, all the nuts and bolts you will need are included.
  • We generally deliver once per week.
  • Yes, we can arrange delivery anywhere in the UK or Ireland. We ship from our depot near Belfast in Northern Ireland to the UK and Ireland. Send us an email with your address and what you would like to purchase and we will get a delivery quote for you.
  • You can pay by credit / debit card, or cash on delivery. If you pay by card at checkout you don't need to be at home for delivery (we will leave it out of sight). If you select cash on delivery at checkout then someone will need to be at home for the delivery so that we can collect the payment (we only accept cash and cannot accept cheques). We will contact you in advance to arrange a date.
  • Yes, we always keep panels in stock so if you want to make your dog run / pen / cage larger at a later date all you need to do is buy more and add them in.
