Looking for Kennel - Odd Size Needed

Anyone have a dog run for sale? Side of house is only 44" wide, so I haven't found anything that fits. Preferably 6' high & can be as long as 10-15'. I can have it covered.

Or suggestions as to where to buy individual pieces that can be connected?

Thanks!

Look at Tractor Supply (you can look online). They have kennel panels you can buy.

Thanx Michelle- I went to their site, but didn't see anything narrow enough. Hubby suggested we go there this weekend & he can determine if what they have can be altered to work for us.

Problem is the width - the smallest I've seen is 4', which is about 4" too wide. That's the hazards of living where we do - everything is too small. As soon as I get the all-clear from the cancer docs, we wanna move - hubby owns 40 acres in AR...

Maybe look on craigslist for chain link fence? Then the width can be adjusted.

GREAT idea, Michelle!!! I should've thought of that...duh. This Chemo-Brain is a real pain sometimes.

Thanks very much - I'll check that right away! ('Cause right now - the dog is in a crate in front of my desk. Driving me nuts with her barks - I see nothing outside. Could be aliens, I guess. She yawns when I tell her "no". Far past time to leave her at home by herself a couple of days.)

She's stressed. The yawns are stress yawns. They get themselves worked up over something (even stress from just being crated or boredom) and when we tell them to quiet they display their stress with yawns. Jax does it too.

You can have the narrow portion made of wood (cut off the excess portion od the privacy wooden panel, home depot) and attach the tractor supply panels to it.

Michelle - I'd like to give her something to be stressed about...she's got me stressed to the max.

Rebel - that's a good idea. We're replacing the regular fence right now, as a storm busted 2 posts. We decided to replace the whole side. I just need to make sure she doesn't chew thru the wood on that small portion.

This is not a dog that likes to be outside by herself. She even ignores her toys when left alone. After staring thru the glass door, she'll finally just lie down by the door, waiting to be let in. Or, dig up my flowers in boredom.
