Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

I'm building a dog run, it's 20' x 8' this a sufficient size area, and also after that I'm building a doghouse, what demensions should it be, I'm worrying the 8' width might be a problem

Should be fine for normal containment. I wouldn't suggest it for full-time containment as in the dog only comes out of it for walks. As for dog houses that depends on the size of your dog. Sizing it similar to a properly fitted crate should work. My crate is a 48 inch crate.

Thanks for the reply, no the backyard is her domain, it's for her to go in when we have family get together or when we leave that way I know she's secured, I'm laying chicken wire under the fence as well, and I live in Texas, I know it gets real hot here so when I build her doghouse I'm gonna put a small window unit in it

No one's mentioned and you haven't said - how tall is this dog run? Considering Huskies have been known to easily clear 6 ft you might want to consider that?

What part of our Great State??

If you put a 2ft tall kennel in the corner that means he only has to clear four feet ...

Yeh, I lived over there for a few years (like 30) all around Houston - emphasis on the "around." The only time I lived inside the loop was once for a while behind the old Houston Post Building.
