Express Kennels

Our collection of Express Kennels make building a dog kennel easier and more efficient than ever before.

Arriving with high-quality materials that you can assemble quickly, all pannels can easily be screwed together and require very few tools to complete. The flat-pack design means that all components are provided so you don’t have to build your own kennel from scratch, saving you hours in labour.

And because they don’t require professional installation, this range of DIY dog kennels deliver great value – perfect for owners on a budget. Although our kennel kits are low maintenance to build, they still deliver the same high performance and longevity as our professionally-installed kennels.

All of our Express Kennels use top-quality, rot-resistant wood for the cladding, floor and frameworks. While the roof consists of high-performance roof sheets and heavy-duty roof felt to keep the inside of the kennel, and your dogs, dry and warm. And, to make sure your dog gets the home it needs, all our kennel kits are fully customisable too.

So, if you’re ready to start building a kennel for your dog, order your express kennel today and get it delivered straight to your door.

Although it may seem cheaper to build a dog kennel yourself, buying a kennel could prove to be a more cost-effective option. Purchasing a dog kennel from a professional service can save you time and money in the long run, as you can rest assured that it will be built with quality.

FSC approved outdoor wood is the best type of material to use to build a dog kennel. Being outdoors, your dog kennel will be exposed to the elements, so you’ll want to ensure that it is strong enough to last. 


At Benchmark Kennels, all of our premium quality kennels are built with FSC approved tanalised timber to ensure that your dog can enjoy its kennel for years to come.

At Benchmark Kennels, we’ll provide you with everything you need to ensure you know how to build a dog kennel. Our express kennels are self-assembly and easy to set up, equipped with all the tools and parts you’ll need to build your dog kennel.

Building a large dog kennel can be difficult and time-consuming, especially if you have no building experience. If you’re struggling to figure out how to build a large dog kennel, we recommend investing in one of our express kennels. These are easy to assemble high quality dog kennels that could be delivered in as little as 48 hours*.

*You could even receive your kennel in 24 hours if you choose to collect.

The cost to build a dog kennel typically depends on the size of kennel required and the complexity of the job. Here at Benchmark Kennels we can provide you with a bespoke, premium quality dog kennel with prices starting at around £750.

The best materials to put down for a dog run are typically limestone, stone-like pea gravel or gravel chips. These materials are beneficial as they are soft on your dog’s paws. It is also recommended that you invest in strong and sturdy dog run panels to keep your pet safe and secure.

Dog runs are used to provide your dog with a more open, outdoor space to roam whilst being protected by dog run panels for added security within the dog pen. This way your dog can get the freedom it needs and you can have peace of mind in knowing that it is protected.

Dog runs are a great idea for those that want to keep their dog in a designated area whilst allowing them to have the freedom to roam and explore in the fresh air. Dog runs are particularly beneficial for those that do not have a fenced garden on their property. These facilities come in a range of different sizes, there are also foldable dog runs for sale, so you’re sure to be able to find a suitable product for your needs.

A dog run should be at least 6 feet high and 3 feet by 10 feet. These are minimum requirements so feel free to go bigger if needed.

Harsh surfaces such as concrete, gravel and asphalt are not good for your dog to run on. Running on hard surfaces can cause injury, particularly to their legs, paws and paw pads. Soft surfaces such as grass and natural ground are better for your dog to walk and run on.

Not every dog will be happy in a kennel to begin with. However, as long as the crate is introduced properly, your dog should be perfectly fine in a kennel. When purchasing a new kennel, make sure it is plenty big enough for your dog, to provide them with maximum space and comfort. 

At Benchmark Kennels, we manufacture and provide a range of cosy canine housing solutions, perfect for even the most restless of breeds.
