What kind of kennel will best suit my dog?

You might be in the market for a large dog kennel, a small dog kennel, or something in between.

That’s okay because we cater to most dog breeds with our range of outdoor and indoor kennels here at Pinnacle.

Whether you want to keep your pooch indoors or outdoors, some or all of the time, we’ve got a dog kennel that will suit your preferences and family lifestyle.

But to get started, we will cover three essential points you need to consider before buying a dog kennel; size, indoors or outdoors, and style (including options to “pimp your kennel”).

Let’s get into it.


According to the size of your dog, it’s pretty apparent whether you need a large dog kennel or a small dog kennel.

But there are also some kennels in between for medium-sized dogs.

Pinnacle offers a full range that includes a small dog kennel, medium dog kennel, and a large dog kennel in indoor and outdoor models.

On our website, you will see that we go into detail about which particular model of Pinnacle dog kennels will suit which breeds of dogs.

For example:

  • If you’re looking for a large dog kennel, you may consider either The FortThe Shack, or The Pet Haus in large sizes, designed for dogs such as a Rottweiler, German Shepherd, Labrador, and Golden Retriever.
  • If you’re looking for a medium dog kennel, you might think about The FortThe ShackThe Villa, or The Pet Haus, which all come in medium sizes, perfect for dogs such as a Cocker Spaniel, Border Collie, Beagle, and Staffordshire Terrier.
  • When it comes to a small dog kennel, you would be looking at our range, including The FortThe Shack, or The Pet Haus, ideal for dogs such as a Terrier, Jack Russell, Maltese, Pug, and Cavalier King Charles.

We have all the exact dimensions of our Pinnacle dog kennels listed on our product pages, so you can be sure that the large dog kennel, small dog kennel, or anything in between that you choose will suit your pet down to the ground.

Whether you want a small dog kennel or a large dog kennel, you will need to consider if you want it inside or outside.

This decision depends largely on the lifestyle of your family and pet.

Some pet owners who own big dogs find it more manageable to have them as outside dogs in an outdoors large dog kennel, especially if they are not well trained and are likely to run amok indoors.

But other dog owners wouldn’t dream of having their pet outdoors, seeing them as part of the indoor family unit.

Other owners are a little from column a and a little from column b, with a preference for investing in both an outdoor and an indoor large dog kennel.

There are advantages to owning both indoor and outdoor kennels in the flexibility it creates in how your dog uses your indoor and outdoor spaces.

Whether you intend to buy a large, medium, or small dog kennel, don’t think in black and white terms. Consider how your dog can benefit from both having an indoor and outdoor kennel.

We offer a large, medium, and small dog kennel to suit every taste at Pinnacle.

Our model, The Fort, is your typical shaped outdoor dog kennel, with solid timber sides and a slanted waterproof roof. This model is available in small, medium, and large.

The Shack has a flatter waterproof roof and an oblong shape with plenty of room for your dog to get comfy and turn around on top of their bedding. You can get The Shack also in small, medium, and large sizes.

The Villa is a luxurious outdoor medium dog kennel, a bit of a one-off, that provides a little verandah space, a covered area, and slightly slanting waterproof roofing.

Then we have our gorgeous indoor dog kennels, in a model known as The Pet Haus, which have a modern timber design perfect for coordinating with any interiors. The Pet Haus is available in small, medium, and large.
