How to Clean a Dog Kennel
Like disinfecting a cat cage, cleaning a dog run is a relatively simple, everyday task. Do it correctly and you ensure your canine residents a healthier, less stressful stay. But do it incorrectly and you essentially put out a welcome mat for all the germs and bacteria that can make life miserable for the dogs—and for you.
Plan cleaning and other activities with “life-stage groupings” in mind: Clean the kennels of puppies first, adult dogs second, and sick or injured dogs last. Use a separate set of cleaning equipment for each life-stage group or thoroughly disinfect the items after every step.
