In their personal time, our GSDs stay at our home as our family companions. Very little time is spent in their home kennels. Instead, they are either inside our house, running 6 acres, or swimming in the river. We take very good care of our family companions. Each of their 10X10 kennels has its own water spicket for the freshest water, its own ceiling fan for air circulation, a roof, and shelter from the elements.
