    ok, i have been putting the girls in the dog kennel on the weekends for "green" time. i drag the kennel around the yard, and its starting to make my shoulder ache. how would i attach tires to the typical metal dog kennel? but i dont want it too high off the ground. here is what i use, but i have net on top instead of the ghetto plywood and sheet [​IMG] oh, and i do have an old push mower that is trashed and it has 2 small wheels and 2 larger wheels, if that helps.

    i would suggest going to ether tractor supply or harbor fright and informing the sales clerk what you are trying to do. getting the wheels in your hands will give you a better idea on how to attach them.
    Plastic wheels designed for a push lawnmower would do nicely.
