Answer: 
Mine was 58 inches tall without the top. I have an odd size kennel (combined with 4x4 to make a larger one) so I could not use the top. I would assume the peak of the top would be 6 ft.

Answer: 
The top is 6 ft measured at the top center of metal cross over bow. The side height is 57.5 inches, almost 5 ft. This is a VERY well built kennel with welded wire in between the tube frame. I have mine in the garage and use it for my two outside dogs during very cold nights or summer time storms. One is average size, (58 lbs), and the other is a lab mix, (80 lbs).

The top is 6 ft measured at the top center of metal cross over bow. The side height is 57.5 inches, almost 5 ft. This is a VERY well built kennel with welded wire in between the tube frame. I have mine in the garage and use it for my two outside dogs during very cold nights or summer time storms. One is average size, (58 lbs), and the other is a lab mix, (80 lbs). They have plenty of room and since this is constructed with equal size wall sections it can easily be built with various lengths and widths. Example; 6'x6', 4'x8' or even with a right angle turn or offset, almost anyway as long as you keep the 24ft perimeter. It is truly tool free using the preformed brackets, thumb nuts and bolts that ARE included. Read Less

Answer: 
Yes. This would be no problem. You could lay it out and make it wider and longer or just longer or wider. If by adding another 4' x 8' kennel would be too much then you might check to se if they sell the same design but in a 4' x 4' size and add that to it. As long as it is the same tool free design of bolts, wing nuts, and metal clips, it will all go together, but depending on your bolt together Read More

Answer: 
Yes you can connect them in different configurations. If they are connected end to end, you could use both roof covers. In any other configuration (i.e. a large square), the roof framing and roof tarp may not fit.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 106 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Read carefully and check box at store The fence is actually 58" tall, and with the cover goes to 6' at the peak. As the fence is 5', so is the gate opening. At 6' tall this is inconvenient. Check the contents - something narrow hit the side hard and damaged 2 panels. Also, - looked like the box had been dropped on the edge and the legs are badly out of square. So I lost 3 panels. While you are checking for damage, check the door for the AKC Label. The pictures show a nice little plate on the door with the AKC label on it - the plate makes a nice label for the kennel. One of the doors did not have the plate. The clamps to connect the panels together are top notch. Using wing nuts to avoid using tools is cool, but I will probably change out to real nuts and get better torque. The hinge is a good kennel hinge. The powder coat is good on the outside (some red discoloring in the square tubing) and the end caps are good quality. I did not see any loose welds on the wire, so that's good. I now have a 6x10 kennel, so I could not use the cover, but they look good quality. One person took about 2 hours. Having a second person while attaching the lower clamps would have made it go much faster. September 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for a fast build or take down Built in about 20 min. 2 people can move it around the yard easily. Could be used for more than dogs. Thought about it for a starter chicken coop. We love it! October 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very satisfied with the product. This is a solid well made kennel. We replaced the wing nuts that came with the kennel. We prefer nuts with locking washers as they don't loosen or strip like the wing nuts. October 11, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Well-built, solid construction First, the panels are two foot wide and less than five feet high; it shouldn't be advertised as 6 ft. high. However, you will pay more for one which is taller. I initially thought I would raise the height using limestone bricks from Home Depot, and then either 4X4 wood or the log cabin-style wood which Home Depot also carries. The wood could be drilled, so that the panels will stay securely in place, but that may be overkill--I suspect they will stay in place just because of their weight. I had the pieces taken out of the box at the store, to make it easier to load and unload them, and also that way I don't have a big box to get rid of. Now, because I'm making a "catio" for my cat, I'm seriously considering stacking another identical kennel on top of the first one. I think the tubing used for the top, which I don't want to use for a top, could be cut with a hacksaw, and used as a sleeve to join the top and bottom panels securely. I think my cat would be very happy to be able to climb up really high, and look out at the birds at the feeder, and whatever else is going on! I really like the way the wire is welded to the panels; a superior design compared to chain-link kennels, which I have used for sled dogs for years. I had good luck with the chain link kennels, but they had to be heavy gauge wire, and SOME Alaskan malamutes or other big dogs can still bend the heavier gauge chain link. Mine didn't. A cat probably wouldn't be able to destroy chain-link the way some dogs can, but I just think it is a superior design and will hold up well for any animal you might think of putting in a kennel of such size, except you need to solve the issue of the hight. Left as is, without a top, or without adding extra height, my cat would not have a problem jumping out of it. I'm also planning on putting pieces of lattice on the top, which will not be waterproof, but will cut down on the sunlight, a bonus in central Texas! It will also keep the cat from jumping out. I gave this kennel 4 stars instead of five because it is not right to advertise it as six feet high when the panels are not even five feet high. October 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Kennel! I was looking for something to help keep my dog in the yard since she kept chewing on my fence boards and getting out. This product is durable and provides enough space for my dog to stretch her legs. The cover is a great touch also since most kennels come with an open top. My husband and daughter put this together in about 30 to 45 mins. September 13, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not 6" tall I bought this product because we are buying a wolf hound and wanted an enclosure that would handle that. The truth is the only place it is 6 feet tall is at the top of the arch for the top tarp. The actual panel height is 58", not even 5 feet tall. September 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect for what we need Our dog loves it! Super easy setup with no tools required! August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice product Easy to erect. It contains my 70lb Golden Doodle. Use it inside. Much better than having her cramped in a regular dog crate. The dog loves it. Sometimes she goes in to it herself. Takes up room but its like she has her own little condo while we are not home. July 26, 2016
