How do you keep your dogs,in just a pen, or one off the ground,also can you tell if it makes a difference how they are kept,

Have kept them in a pen on the ground and pen with concrete foundation. What difference do you mean? I just like concrete because its easy to spray off clean.

I have done both, right now I have 4 off the ground and 2 on the ground, simply because I haven't built another above ground kennel. Health wise, off the ground is better, with worms and things.

Here is two of my kennels,

[/quote I have always kept mine on the ground to,but from what i've read and been told off the ground pens are better for your dogs health,also been told concrete is bad for the dogs feet,makes their pads crack,But what I was wondering about ,I read somewhere that dogs kept off the ground seem to have a better nose as far as tracking.

I dont have pics but i have above ground kennels inside of a large pen im in the process of switching over to the plastic kennel flooring and might even convert a storage barn into a 6 run kennel with boxes inside during the winter especially pups. I saw a kennel set up thats bigger than most houses the other day, man itd be nice to have something like that!!!!!
Above is definitly the way to go but some of the best dogs i ever seen stayed on the ground with nothing more than a barrel!

That's like asking a Ford or Chevy question.I keep mine on a concrete pad that i wash off everyday into its own septic system.I have never had a pad problem on their feet or any health problems.The raised kennels with the wire floor, in my opinion are hard on their feet, and the wood floors will absorb urine and can cause odor problems.I have tried all 3 methods and prefer the concrete over all others.I do have little platforms in each pen for them to get up on so they dont have to lay on the concrete all the time.Some like them some dont.

Hey guys, i just got me 3 male bluetick beagle pups and i need some pointers from some you old timers. Theyre 3 months old. Ive been working with them everyday. They will use their nose to track down meat when you tie it to a string and drag it around. I have a rabbit and they go after him. I think im going in the right direction cause ive been studying about it alot. But I know yall probably have alot of knowledge. Id like to maybe find someone to let them go out with their beagles around east tn

I've not been fooling with them to many years,still learning myself ,Rabbit Hunter on here could probably tell ya anything you want to know,but what I do know is the more you take um the better they get,also if you could get a older good dog to run with your pups it will train them for you,I would love to get a bunch of people to gather and go sometime this year.
