Just wanted to get some opinions on what others have used that worked well. I'm building a new 24/24 garage and running 5 or 6 ground runs off the backside with a concrete floor they will be 8 foot long with the boxs inside the building. What I'm looking for exactly is a good alternative to use outside of chain link some of my bigger dogs chew on the chain link and bend it all up so I'm looking for something a little stronger. Also some ideas on doors any advice would be great thanks for replys.

Im almost done with building mine and my total kennel size is 40ft by 12ft built out of 2in steel pipe with a steel roof on a concrete pad that slopes from 6 to 3in to make it easier to clean out but I was in the same boat as you on not wanting to use chain link so I used galvanized horse panels they are very sturdy and I dont think an alligator could chew through them. They are just like stock panels except the spacing is 2in by 4in for the holes, they are 5ft tall and 16ft long. Only downfall is they are 65 bucks each. I had over 1000 dollars in panels alone but shouldnt ever need to replace them. You can get them at tractor supply or about any other farm store. Hope this helped you and best of luck sir!
All I can say is if their urine is acidic enough to eat through 1/4 inch thick rod then something is wrong! I dont think there would be a problem at all and it is alot heavier than chainlink, if they rot out I dont know what a person would use that wouldnt rot. They are very stout my dividers are 12 long by 5 tall welded to 2in. pipe they hardly move when you push on them and dont move when a dog stands up on them. I belive you can get them in 4 or 6gauge, mine are 6
