Timber Dog Kennels from Facebook Marketplace and Gumtree

Let’s face it, wooden dog kennels are HEAVY. So if you’re not up for lugging one home from Bunnings, or paying a lot of money on shipping fees, why not look online? With a bit of luck, you’ll find one from a few streets down the road.

Facebook Marketplace and Gumtree often have plenty of wooden dog kennels on offer, sometimes second-hand but still in great condition.

Stylish Wooden Dog Kennels from Etsy

Who says wooden dog kennels have to be just wooden boxes? If you’re after something a bit more unique, Etsy has some amazing options for both indoor and outdoor use. Just make sure to check the measurements before purchasing – wooden dog kennels can be bulky, so make sure it’s not too big (or small) for your pup. And of course, always check with the seller about shipping fees and delivery options before making a purchase.
