Disinfect kennels for optimal hygiene Disinfect outdoor kennel areas Most of the health problems we see with "outside dogs" can easily be prevented with proper sanitation.

Outdoor kennels are a magnet for viruses, fungi and bacteria that could harm your pet. We recommend you disinfect your dog's outdoor living quarters and everything in it at least weekly if your pet spends much of its day outside. If you use your kennel less frequently, then disinfect at least monthly.

All surfaces should be cleaned and disinfected with a germicidal cleaner, not just the floor. Spray, mop, or wipe down every surface, including walls and crates. Don't forget to sanitize water and food bowls. These cleaners also kill molds, mildews, and other odor-causing fungi and bacteria and leave kennels smelling fresh.

All kennels and runs should have floors of sealed concrete to provide the best barrier against disease causing organisms. Gravel, dirt, and grass are not recommended because they are too difficult to keep clean and impossible to disinfect.

Keeping your dog's outside area clean isn't difficult, expensive, or all that time consuming. In the long run, it could save you a considerable amount of money in veterinarian bills. Most importantly, it's what's best for the health and safety of your dog.
