You can get some 3/4 rough oak and fill in at the top and make them as tall as you want, it wouldn't be hard to get another 8" or more.

Hey Boomer,
Good to talk to you again. We still kick'in and keeping the dog food companies in business.
Sounds like you got a nice pack of hounds. Good to have you back on-board.

My new kennel is 24" tall with 1.5" under each division panel so 25.5". It works out great even for the 15" dogs in it.
