    When bulding a kennel, most people recommend chain link kennels over welded wire. Do you agree? THoughts

      I've heard these kennels are very nice.

        Sparky -

        A lot depends on the quality of the product and especially on the gauge of the wire and the support structure.

        There is a HUGE difference between 9 ga. wire and 11 ga. wire and a similarly HUGE difference between thinwall tubing and thickwall tubing, whether it be round tubing for chain link or square tube for welded wire.

        I personally have used 9 ga. chain link and thickwall tubing for many years. I still have a couple of panels from the kennel I had made in 1980.
        On a very few occasions, I have had to replace a bottom tiedown wire on a chain link panel where the dog had beaten or gnawed it into submission.

        My BIL had Priefert welded wire kennels and they were also VERY well made and very nice. I suspect the Priefert product is a top of the line product.

          I like my Preifert over chain link. I had a dog that wanted to escape pull at the chain link and create a hole. The wire holding the chain link to the frame gave way.
