I'm fostering two mastiff puppies and they quickly outgrew the old plastic kennel they were sharing. So, I built them a new and improved kennel! It's so much nicer than that old one and looks great in my living room. The puppies appreciate the additional room, too! Now hopefully a family comes along soon to adopt them before they outgrow this kennel, too! :)

Building this kennel was the first time I used a Kreg Jig. I LOVE it! I will be using it a lot more on future projects.

I put a stop plate on the inside of the door frame so that the door stops right where it should to latch it and not swing inwards.

Just wanted to say that I just started fostering and have a German Shepherd/Border Collie mix that came with a large wire crate. If I keep up with this fostering, I think I'll need a small, medium, and large one! Love it, thanks for posting....I'll be buying more lumber again.
