    I have a 20x10 chain link dog kennel that I use as a run and need suggestions for a cover for it to help protect from rain and sun. I have tried the tarp method and find I spend a lot of time removing the water when it rains. Anyone with ideas on something a little more permanent ? Thanks

    We're going to use clear corrugated panels on our run, which is on the north side of our barn. If you also need shade you can get the same panels but they're opaque, or you can have some for light, the rest for shade. They come with a 5-year warranty I believe, provided you use the screws/washers sold to fasten them.

    Are you going to use a dog kennel and if so how will you attach the panels?

    I have my tarp higher on one end so snow & water side off!

    maybe if you somehow brace a 2x6x10 at one end!

    I would love to get the corrigated roof myself but, the $ stops me
