Hey guys, just looking for some suggestions for a outdoor dog kennel that I'm building for my dog during the day while I'm at work. First thought was the standard concrete pad, but I'd rather my pup (10months) not be laying down on concrete all day long. I've also considered concrete for around the edges and pea gravel or artificial grass for the center. Kennel will have a dog house with cedar or pine shavings. Thoughts/suggestions?
