The run should be at least twice as wide as your pet’s shoulders and five times the length from nose to tail. A level, shady spot protected from wind and flooding is a perfect location. The floor of the dog run can be grass or concrete.
Set a post in each hole and pour a dry 50-pound bag of concrete into each hole and add five gallons of water. The bottom framing gets connected first then clamps are used to hold the bolted uprights in place. The top rails go on next, again with clamps to help tighten.
Last to be added is the upright post for the gate. Then it’s time to unroll the fence fabric and add the first tension rod.
The fabric should be stretched and secured with wire ties about every 5 feet. Pull the fence toward the opposite pole, mark for cutting, then cut fencing and unweave it at determined length. Cutting is done at the last post beside the gate with more ties to fasten the edge.
