In many ways concrete is an ideal kennel floor surface -- for humans. It is durable, weatherproof, easy to clean and neat-looking. It's uncomfortable for your dog, though. Concrete, like stone, heats and cools with the weather, makes a hard bed to lie upon and can abrade soft foot pads. You can fix the problems and retain the benefits however, by pouring the concrete pad so that it slopes slightly, for good drainage, and by building at least one raised platform of wood or furnishing rubber or other padded surfaces for your dog's comfort. As an alternative to a solid slab, consider making a partial floor of concrete pavers planted between with a durable ground cover like elfin thyme or Irish moss to help mitigate temperature extremes and make a more comfortable surface.
