TK Products Pro-Series Backless Multi-Run Dog Kennels - Indoor/Outdoor Welded Wire
Why Buy From Pet Pro Supply Co?
IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to the heavy summer demand for kennels and recent steel tariffs causing delays,
we do not expect to ship any kennels until the week of September 17, 2018 at the earliest. We are still taking back orders on kennels now, and will ship them in the order that we receive them.
If you need kennels, we strongly recommend ordering them as soon as possible. There appears to be a short supply of welded wire kennels across the country, and we are almost out of some sizes in our next batch!
TK Products Pro-Series Backless Multi-Run Dog Kennels are heavy duty dog kennels made from hot dipped galvanized welded wire kennel panels and open on one side.
Made for indoor and outdoor use, these kennels were designed to board large and extra large dogs in outside/inside configurations. Available in 9 different sizes from 4'W x 5'L to 10'W x 10'L and 2 to 6 run kennel configurations. All Kennels are 6' (72") in height.
After years of using major branded and custom-built kennels, it was discovered that powder coat and galvanized finishes currently being used just don’t last in today’s average dog kennel environment. After extensive research and testing, hot dip galvanizing the complete panel after welding and assembly is the most protective means to prevent corrosion and rusting of the kennel panels. This finishing process coats and seals the outside as well as the inside of every surface. The key is to apply a galvanized coating of 5 mills thick or more which will extend the life expectancy to 100+ years according to the American Galvanizing Association, www.galvanizeit.org. Bridges, street sign posts and guardrails are examples of other products coated with this process and thicknesses.
All TK Kennels come with a 5 Year Manufacturer Warranty!
Other kennels will claim to be galvanized after welding, but close inspection will reveal that the welded joints have just been hand painted with galvanized paint. Painting the welds simple coats the outside of the surface with a very thin finish and leaving the inside of the weld and frame with no protection at all from condensation or moisture. The stock tubing they use may be hot dipped but with a very thin coating which can easily wear through during normal use. We have found powder coating to be less durable than even the cheap galvanized kennels, as it holds up no better than any ordinary paint.
Each Pro-Series kennel panel utilizes 1 ¼” square tubing frame with welded mitered corners for superior strength and appearance. The top mitered corner design also eliminates all dirt and debris from entering the top of the frame and corroding it from the inside out. Most of the other major brand kennels have frames that are wide open on top.
Using square tube kennel frames provides a more positive means to secure two panels together. Our square frame kennels are bolted together using a stainless steel bolt assembly that is designed to wrap around each frame for increased strength, unlike round tube framed kennels which use a round clamp system which often become loose and rotate. Our bolt assembly includes all stainless steel bolts and vibration proof stainless steel ny-lock nuts. We chose this design due to our own experience with brackets that loosen and fail.
The square tubing frame holds 6 gauge 2x4 welded wire mesh. The inside of the frame is pre-drilled around the entire inner perimeter; then each end of the wire mesh is inserted into the pre-drilled frame and welded around every wire. This is the most secure way to fasten the wire mesh to the frame and eliminates exposed sharp or jagged edges which could injure your pet. This design also provides a quiet kennel with no rattling of the fence like other chain link versions. Most other brands just weld the wire mesh to the surface of the frame every six to twelve inches which means some of the wire mesh ends can be bent out and injure your pet.
The kennels are raised off the ground with a 2” leg for easy spray out cleaning and also have a plastic leg insert to help with wear and improve corrosion resistance.
The optional Stainless Steel foot replaces the plastic leg insert and allows the side panels to be adjustable from 2” – 3” – 4” above grade for easy cleaning and sloped concrete installations. The large 3 ½” square foot also allows for bolting the kennels to the concrete and works great for setting up the kennels on soft surfaces like grass or pea stone.
Each door panel has a 2-foot door which swings in-or-out. The door panel is also reversible offering a right or left handed installation. The door hinge design allows for the door to be removed by lifting it straight up but only if the door is opened to at least 90 degrees, this is a handy feature for cleaning. These unique features truly make the TK Pro-Series a versatile kennel system.
The spring loaded door latch is solid stainless steel with an internal stainless spring that holds the latch shut and prevents your pet from opening the door. In addition to having a handle on both sides for ease of use, the latch is also lockable for your pet’s safety. The ease of one handed door opening during feeding time as well as doors that open in or out will save you time as well as the frustration of trying to open the door with feed bowls in your hand.
Optional Isolation Panels & Roof Panels
TK Isolation Panels are made of a non-toxic black textured HDPE (composite). Being that the HDPE is black all the way through it shows less scratches than any steel or galvanized panels and it is impervious to cleaning chemicals and will never corrode or rust even if damaged. All our isolation panels are 48” tall and fastened to our wire mesh side panels using stainless steel brackets and screws. This means the panels can be added, moved or removed at any time to increase ventilation or install where needed.
We also offer top mesh panels for our 4’x10’ and 5’x10’ kennels.They are designed to sit down flush inside the kennel on the six mounting tabs and are fastened in place using the supplied stainless steel self-drilling mounting screws
Mounting to a Wall
We do not supply hardware to fasten the backs to the wall mainly because there would be too many types of fasteners and walls (block, steel, studded, drywall, etc.). All our side panels are pre-drilled near the top and bottom to allow you to use either lag bolts or concrete anchors to fasten them to the wall depending on your preference. For sloped floors lag bolts and a cut a piece of ¾ electrical PVC pipe may be used as a spacer. This works great since concrete is never perfectly level and the spacers can be cut to the exact length for each kennel side. In addition, they will never rust or corrode.
IMPORTANT SHIPPING INFORMATION
When we ship your order, it will arrive on a pallet delivered by a commercial LTL carrier. The trucks are usually semis / tractor trailers / full size 18 wheelers. If you need residential delivery, we recommend having some help onsite when your shipment arrives. The freight company will call you a day or so before they deliver to schedule a time to deliver. The pallets of kennels can be unwrapped on the truck and each kennel panel can then be easily lifted off the truck. Due to the size and nature of the LARGER kennel pieces, lift-gate service is unavailable for 8' and 10' Long Kennels.

LTL FREIGHT SHIPPING INFORMATION
LTL (less-than-truckload) Freight is used when shipments are 120 lb+ or for oversized equipment, which results in a truck with a large container delivering your order. Our freight carrier will contact you once your order makes it to the distribution center closest to the delivery address specified, and set up an appointment time for delivery.
Pet Pro Supply Co. Free LTL Freight Shipping - Curbside Delivery
Our standard Free Freight Shipping option for LTL deliveries is curbside, which is to a delivery to a Commercial Address and does not include a liftgate. If your order is to be shipped freight, you will have the option to specify whether the item will be delivered to a Residential, Limited Access, or Commercial address. If there is no option to select a shipping location, then this cost ia already included in the price.
We strongly recommend adding the optional Liftgate for all deliveries to locations without a loading dock or forklift.
Freight Delivery Locations
This option specifies whether the delivery location is a Commercial, Residential, Residential Business, or a Limited Access address.
- Commercial - These addresses are those defined by our freight carriers and/or zoned by local municipalities as commercial sites. Typically these addresses are zoned as commercial real estate or are used exclusively for business. Most commercial sites have tractor-trailer access and a loading dock.
- Residential - If the address used a residence, select this option. This includes Apartment/Condo complexes and dormitories.
- Residential Business - Any business being operated from a home, apartment, or other dwelling where people live on the premises is considered to be a Residential Business.
- Limited Access - Locations where deliveries are restricted, limited, or very far from a distribution center. Examples Include:
- Place of Worship
- Restricted Areas - Secure Research Facilities, Military Bases/Installations, Correctional Facilities, Government Buildings
- Farms, Ranches, and Rural Areas
- Recreational Areas - Camps, Parks, Fairs, Carnivals, etc.
- Individual Storage Units
- Sites - Convention Centers, Construction Sites, Mines
- Schools and Universities
- Commercial establishments not open to the walk-in public during normal business hours
A liftgate is a hydraulic lift that is attached to the back of a truck that can lower freight to ground level. Freight carriers prevent their drivers from assisting with the unloading of heavy equipment other than using a liftgate to ground level. We highly recommend any delivery address without a loading dock, select this option.
However, please know that for certain very long items, such as Kennels over 6' in length, a Liftgate will not be able to bring the entire order down to ground level. Please have the necessary manpower available to receive your items with limited delay to the driver.
"I bought 7 4 x 10 kennels and love them! Very well built and easy to put up!!!! We train labs for gun dogs and hunt test at Otter Creek Retrievers and wouldn't buy any other brand! Hopefully we are going to purchase 4 more this spring to add to our runs!!!"
best kennels on the market. mine are over a year old and still look brand new
We purchased 11, 4'x10' kennels and are very pleased. They are awesome and definitely worth the money. The quality is top notch with excellent craftsmanship and design. They are exceptionally well built especially for larger breeds of dogs. We raise American Bullies and American Pitbull Terrors and these kennels are proving to be very durable and reliable. We couldn't be more please and highly recommend them.
I run a boarding service for dogs in upstate NY and needed to expand my business quickly. These kennels are high quality and look very professional. Will be buying more when my new facility is finished
These kennels are really well designed and I like how they're galvanized. I ordered two 2-runs for my dogs. I put one of them on the inside of the house , the other on the outside, and a dog door inbetween. Perfect for letting my boys get fresh air and go outside whenever they want, while still letting them take shelter inside without me needing to let them back into the house/kennel.
