If your kennel is 6' wide we recommend an 18" or taller center post this works out to a 6 inch drop in 12 inches otherwise known as a 6 in 12 pitch.  This is the minimum recommended slope.

You can make your own dog kennel roof using 1"3/8 top rail tubing sold at Home Depot in 10'6" lengths.  They also carry tarps or Harbor Freight Tools has a great deal on their silver tarps.

We have the hard to find T clamps available in a convenient kit available at our online store.
