We've outlined a few of our most popular indoor dog kennel flooring ideas to help you get started.
Rolled Rubber Flooring
Dog kennel rubber flooring is a popular option for large indoor dog play areas. Made of recycled tire rubber, rolled rubber flooring is durable, easy to clean, and environmentally friendly. Rolled rubber has been used in world-renowned dog daycare centers for more than a decade, and because they are so durable, these floors still look like new.
Rolled rubber is often used as indoor dog pen flooring, since it is tacky enough to provide dog paws with good grip, while also being firm enough to not be damaged by claws. Dog kennel rubber flooring is gentle on dogs' paw pads, but creates a safe surface that they can play, run, and roughhouse on.
One of the major benefits of rolled rubber is that you can economically and quickly cover large areas. Rolled rubber creates fewer seams than rubber tiles or mats for floors do, but it is also heavy and installation generally requires multiple people.
Greatmats offers low odor varieties of rolled rubber flooring that are suitable for indoor use.
Rubber Tiles and Mats
An alternative to rolled rubber, straight edged mats and interlocking tiles are smaller and easier to handle for a simpler installation. They also are easier to repair or replace than rolled rubber; if an area is damaged, you can replace just one tile or just one mat.
Rubber mats for dog kennels, like our Ring Mat, offer anti-fatigue properties and are highly durable. The Rubber Ring Mat features ring perforations to allow for excellent drainage. The mat helps to keep the dogs up off of a concrete floor, but allows for easy washing, hosing, and cleaning of your dog kennels.
Rubber tiles can be used in kennels, in run-in areas, and in training spaces. Our Sterling Athletic Rubber Tile is durable and features interlocking edges for an easy installation. This dog kennel rubber flooring can be used both indoors and out, and it's very easy to clean, making it an ideal choice for dog kennels.
Foam tiles provide more shock absorption and cushion than rubber flooring does. However, foam isn't quite as durable as rubber; if you place heavy equipment or furniture on foam flooring, the weight may cause an indentation that remains even after the equipment is removed. Foam does offer many benefits in terms of both dog and caregiver comfort.
Because foam flooring offers such great shock absorption and cushion, it is an ideal surface for areas which will house puppies. Foam flooring is easy on the developing bones and joints of active dogs of any size. The tiles are also reversible and easy to install and/or replace.
Our interlocking foam dog agility tiles provide the ultimate in creature comfort. Long known by professional trainers as a durable flooring with superior cushion and grip, these tiles are also waterproof and slip resistant. They are softer and lighter than rubber, and will show some puncture marks from the dogs' nails which will not affect the dog flooring's performance.
Keep in mind that foam tiles are lightweight and easy to install. If a tile becomes damaged, you can replace just that tile, rather than having to replace the entire floor.
In addition to foam and rubber tiles, plastic tiles are another one of our great indoor dog kennel flooring ideas. Plastic tiles are somewhat in between foam and rubber when it comes to cushion, shock absorption, and durability. They provide excellent traction and anti-fatigue properties, and some plastic tiles even offer an ASTM fall height rating.
Our StayLock Perforated Tiles are waterproof and ideal for use in areas where the tiles will get wet. They are non-slip, and their perforated surface allows for excellent drainage. These tiles are ASTM fall height rated to 20 inches, and they are also resistant to many oils and acids.
One of the great benefits of the StayLock tiles is the fact that they are incredibly easy to install. The active locking connector system ensures a strong connection, creating a floor that won't pull apart. You can install these tiles yourself, and may choose to use them inside your kennels or in a dog run area.
Artificial Grass Turf
Artificial grass turf also makes a popular dog flooring option. Artificial turf is ideal for dog runs and play areas, since it closely resembles real grass without any of the hassle or maintenance. There's no mowing or weeding, and you don't need to worry about potentially harmful fertilizers or pesticides contaminating the areas where you are keeping and caring for dogs. Additionally, artificial turf gives you instant gratification. You don't have to wait for the grass to grow, and can enjoy a great looking facility during each and every season.
Artificial grass turf is available in mats and in rolls. Rolls can be used to quickly cover large areas, while mats for floors are best suited for smaller installations. Our Artificial Grass Mats have a realistic look and feel, yet are supremely soft. Their fibers are resistant to staining, and the grass won't fade, ensuring a great-looking surface despite rigorous use. Best of all, you can simply rinse the artificial turf clean - cleanup couldn't be simpler. These mats are available in varying sizes, and you can even roll them up and take them with you if needed.
For larger applications, consider our Pet Heaven Artificial Grass Turf Roll. This turf is specifically designed for pet areas, and is virtually maintenance free. You can flush the turf with water to clean it, and the durable surface ensures a high-performance floor that you're sure to be delighted with.
