The 8 x 6 Staffordshire Pressure Treated Dog Kennel and Run from Mercia is ideal for those looking for an outdoor shelter that will make your dog feel cosy, safe and secure. It provides a comfortable home and a space that is just for them, in which they can relax and recharge. Manufactured here in the UK using FSC® certified timber, you can be confident in the quality.

This wooden pet house and run consists of two parts; an open mesh area to the front and a spacious shelter at the back. The two sections are connected by a stable door, to allow your dog freedom between sitting out and enjoying the fresh air, or snuggling up inside. Featuring a full-height roof, not only does the dog run feel spacious and airy, but it also makes maintaining and cleaning the kennel simple and easy!


The walls are manufactured using 12mm interlocking shiplap tongue and groove boards; this provides a solid structure, guaranteed to offer years of reliable use. The floor is manufactured using smooth and strong interlocking boards, for a premium, high grade finish. A solid sheet board roof covers the entire building, and is finished with high quality mineral felt for long-lasting weatherproof protection. The mesh access door comes complete with a strong padbolt as well as turn buttons for added security.

We use pressure treated timber to manufacture this dog kennel. This treatment will ensure your product is protected against insect attack and natural decay. It also means it benefits from a 15-year anti-rot guarantee. Our manufacturer highly recommends a waterproof treatment upon construction and treatment annually thereafter is required.

This building must be constructed on a firm level base such as concrete, concrete slabs or a wooden base. Closely follow the care instructions for the kennel provided by Mercia to make sure your anti-rot guarantee is valid for the full 15 years of coverage.

Your 8 x 6 Mercia Staffordshire Dog Kennel and Run will arrive flat-packed with every part and fixture needed to assemble it at home. A detailed instruction manual is included and will guide those with less DIY experience to their goal of a complete kennel and run. Your amount of previous experience with similar projects will dictate the length of time it takes to finish this product, but most customers take one or two days to do so. Enlisting the help of an extra pair of hands is strongly advised when building the kennel. Alternatively, select our assembly service and you can sit back and relax while the kennel is built for you.

This will include instructions for periodically treating your timber – many manufacturers recommend Protek Paint, available to purchase from elbec in over 60 stains and colours.

Booking Delivery

You will be required to book your delivery date at the time of placing your order (except for Metal Shed). Our 'Request a Delivery Date' service is available to the majority of areas and you'll find that the majority of the UK postcodes are FREE but some areas may incur a delivery surcharge and some postcodes are not covered at all. Select a 'requested delivery date' by entering your postcode in the 'Request a delivery date' section above. You will also be notified at this time if your area incurs a surcharge or delivery is not covered in your area.

Prior to Delivery

On the morning of your delivery date, you'll be sent an update by text with an estimated 2-hour delivery slot (this update can only be provided where a mobile number has been supplied on the billing address section at the time of checkout) together with a link to the manufacturer delivery portal where you'll be able to track your order.

Please note: Mercia Metal Sheds ONLY - your order is delivered by a courier you will not be notified prior to the delivery. If you are not in on the day of the delivery you will be carded and asked to contact the courier to arrange a new mutual delivery date. The estimated delivery lead time for Mercia's Metal sheds is identified on the product for the metal shed. Lead times are on working days (Monday - Friday) excludes Bank Holidays. These estimated lead times are provided by the manufacturer. Some remote areas will take a little longer.

Upon Delivery

Your order is delivered either kerbside or driveway and will be delivered on either a 3.5T, 7.5T or 18T Lorry. Unfortunately due to health and safety and insurance liabilities the driver will not be able to take your goods around to the back of your property but may upon request place the product at the side of the house if there are no access or restriction issues. We would not risk damaging your property whilst delivering a product to an unsafe location. Unfortunately, we will not be able to go through your property.

We would recommend against arranging for a third party to install the building before it's been delivered and checked that all parts are present, as we cannot be held liable for any third-party costs.


Orders with Assembly 

The lead time for our installation option is around 12 weeks from the date of order. With the installation option, the majority of orders will have their delivery and installation on separate days; there will be a small number of orders which will have delivery and installation on the same day. You will be advised by the manufacturer's installation team which category your order falls into.

Depending on the installation option for your order, you will be contacted within the delivery timescale and given a date for either delivery/assembly on the same date or a separate date for delivery and assembly.
