When dogs are confined in kennelling facilities, it can pose problems.
A 2011 study found that dogs kept in kenning facilities were more likely to exhibit behavior issues, such as licking their feet and chewing on other people’s furniture, than those in other environments.
A study of a kennelled shelter in South Australia found that it’s harder for dogs to adjust to a new environment.
Dogs that are confined for a long time can also exhibit more severe behavioral problems, such to jumping or biting people.
The kenneled shelter in Australia has since been closed down.
