This design guide is intended to provide the basic criteria to evaluate, plan, program and design quality MWD facilities. It endeavors to cover the ideal facility requirements and design considerations to provide a successful, quality, cost effective facility to the end user. This guide is intended for all personnel involved from the development through the execution of the project. This guide provides the design basis for a 10 indoor/outdoor kennel run facility that includes a staff of one kennel master, two trainers and 10 handlers. Areas should be adjusted (larger/smaller) based on upon the number of MWDs.
