What Type of Kennel Flooring Should You Choose?

Kennels must be hygienic and clean, this means the flooring needs to be easy to keep clean, it also has to have some level of grip to prevent dogs from falling over. In addition to this the floor needs to be suitable for heavy use as most kennels will see a lot of foot movements each day, the floor surface must also be anti-slip so dogs do not slip and injury themselves and it has to have some form of durability to protect floors from damage.

When it comes to kennel flooring options there are many different choices available to dog owners. From concrete flooring to kennel matting rolls, each has its own benefits and drawbacks.

For example, a concrete kennel floor is affordable, durable, and provides good traction for dogs to prevent them from slipping or falling. However, it can be hard on dogs’ joints and if the floor is not sanded down it can be difficult to clean and it can trap moisture which leads to the growth of harmful bacteria.

Choosing the Right Kennel Flooring: Factors to Consider

Another popular option is a polyurea floor coating which is very quick to apply and dries quickly, but this can be hard on dogs’ joints and unless it is sanded down after application it can also become scratchy.

If you are looking for a kennel floor that is both easy to install and easy to clean, look no further than the rubber kennel mats. These are easily relocatable and have an interlocking mechanism which allows them to be made into any size or shape required. They are water-resistant and can be glued down or loose laid, making them a convenient and affordable choice for most dog kennels.
