Default Dog kennel floor

I’d like to build a few kennels off the ground. Anybody have suggestions for the floor? I’d like a floor that poop could fall thru, either steel or plastic. Anybody use anything like this?

Dont make the entire floor out of the welding rod type screen. Make part of it solid so the pup can lay on solid material for warmth rather than an exposed bottom. Or, you could take hay in/out when freezing.

You can use 5 quarter treated deck boards and space them about 1/2” apart. They will last a long time under roof. There are other materials, but these are readily available and simple.

I’m building mine similar to this but out of wood and with at least 1/2 or 3/4 of the floor so poop can go thru it. Mine is also for German shorthairs and mountain curs.
