Best Flooring Options for a 10x10 Dog Kennel

These flooring products are among the best, as they are dog-proof, can be installed on concrete or wood, and are affordable. Many are suitable for indoor or outdoor use. Knowing which one is the best 10x10 dog kennel floor for you depends on the type of product you prefer, your budget, and the features and benefits you want the flooring to deliver.

1. Rubber Mats for Dog Kennels

The 10x10 Foot Kit of Horse Stall Mats is a perfect 10x10 rubber mat for dog kennel layouts, as you get the amount of product you need in mats that are designed specifically for animal use.

Greatmats’ customer Dianalynn uses these mats for her kennels that her show dogs use. She says, “They love them! I will be ordering more.” She says that working with Greatmats was “such a great experience from start to finish.”

These mats are easy to assemble with an interlocking design, and they can be installed on any flat surface. Made of durable rubber with an ¾ inch thickness, these made-in-the-USA mats deliver a comfortable surface that’s a breeze to keep clean.



2. PVC Outdoor Tiles

Outdoor Patio Tiles are among the best flooring for outdoor dog kennel products when your dogs will be spending time outdoors or over a concrete surface with a floor drain. They deliver a surface that is non-slip and comfortable. The tiles consist of flexible PVC material, and they can be installed over virtually any outdoor surface while delivering excellent drainage.

At 1x1 foot in size, you’ll need 100 tiles to cover a 10x10 foot kennel floor.

They can even serve as a subfloor for more solid surfaces, as they allow water flow and air to flow underneath, enabling drainage and preventing fluids from becoming trapped underneath the floor.

Greatmats’ customer Susan stated, “I have a dog that is blind, and the doggie door leads outside into a dog kennel so he doesn’t get lost in the yard. I put these in the kennel and put artificial grass on top, and that is his place to potty. The grass is off the ground just high enough that I can keep it washed off and clean. Works great!”

For a similar, but more cushioned option, consider our StayLock Perforated Tiles.



3. Foam Mats

The Home Sport & Play Mat is made of EVA foam that is double-colored and reversible. It’s a product that is waterproof, stain-resistant, scuff-resistant, durable, easy to transport, and a breeze to clean.

Greatmats’ customer Geo reviewed his use of this product, “We purchased these for the middle of our boarding kennel. We ordered additional mats for areas where our older dogs lay, and they love them!”

This is a high-end version of 2x2 foot Foam Mats with the following features:
  • ¾ inch of cushion
  • 2 color options per tile
  • Border strips
  • Bright color options



4. Rolled Rubber

Our ¼ inch Thick Rubber Flooring Rolls also work well in kennels. They are durable, easy to install, simple to keep clean, and are made to endure all types of animal use and abuse.

Greatmats’ customer Gerald is very satisfied with his use of the 4x10 foot product. He writes, “Good product! We are using it on one of our kennel floors.”

You’ll need three rolls to cover a 10x10 space. Either trim 2 feet off the side of one mat or 1 foot off the edge of two mats to make it fit your space.



5. High Density EVA Foam Mats

Our Gym Floor Workout Fitness Tile Pebble product is a lightweight, super high-density EVA foam product. Designed to endure the weight of exercise equipment, it’s strong enough for your dogs.

Sized at 2x2 feet per tile, 25 tiles will suffice. Like the Home Sport and Play Mat, it is about ¾ inch thick, reversible, and comes with border strips. However, it is only available in black, has a pebble-style surface texture instead of a thatch texture, and uses much firmer foam.

This product is double-sided with a non-slip pebble texture, and it’s free of lead and latex.

Customer John reviewed his use of this product, “I purchased some of these mats to put in the floor of the dogs’ houses, as they are used for an outdoor kennel flooring 10x10 layout. The dogs use them, and they don’t chew on the material.”



6. Flexible PVC Matting

Our customers love the HVD Kennel Matting Roll as a great choice as flooring for a dog kennel for multiple reasons.
  • It consists of PVC plastic, which is cushioned for keeping your best friend safe and comfortable during time spent in the dog pen.
  • It has a perforated surface that’s also smooth, so the dog will not notice uncomfortable lumps that some perforated floors may have.
  • The open grid mesh design allows liquids to drain through to the subfloor or ground, keeping the puppy dry and comfortable, even when potty training is not going perfectly.
  • PVC plastic does not absorb liquid, helping prevent the formation of bacteria.
  • PVC plastic works for indoor or outdoor use, and it has UV resistance built into it.
  • Its raised design keeps your best friend from having to lie directly on the cold ground.
  • After a hard day of play in the dog run, your puppy can rest comfortably on this flexible material.
  • When it’s time to clean it, remove it and rinse it with a hose or sweep the surface.

For your 10x10 kennel deck or cage, just order two of our 2x33 rolls. Cut five strips at 10 feet in length and lay them side by side to create the floor. It couldn’t be easier to install. It works great in a dog house, too.
