About

Inspiration behind byDakor

Our story begins with the purchase of our first Rottweiler together (2016), Tyr. A beautiful young male Rottweiler pup, whom is full of energy and life. Life was not easy for our young pup, contracting and losing his brother to the parvo virus. Tyr was able to make a full recovery from his illness, and move forward with us to our next chapter of life.

This brings us to January 2017. With the decision to devote our life to the betterment of our chosen breed, we established Schaferhaus Rottweilers. With this decision we added two females to our growing family. Ice and Val, to amazing and gorgeous Rottweiler pups.

Each pup needs their own space to provide security, but we did not like the wire kennels. We found many businesses that made wooden kennels, but were limited on color choices, and the did not sell other home decor items that matched these kennels.

We have set out to create a place for customers to purchase quality wooden kennels, and matching home decor. We want our kennels to blend seamlessly into our customers homes and want to provide quality products to make that a viable option.

Frequently asked questions
What shipping methods are used for large items such as dog kennels?

First of, large items are required to be shipped as freight. As such, the costs range from $200 - $400, dependent upon size. We make ever attempt to make this type of shipping affordable for our customers, but we have no control of these costs.

Items shipped using this method will be shipped to a local freight terminal for pickup. Upon arrival, the freight terminal contact the customer for pickup. For safety reasons, please have someone available to assist you when picking up your item, then kennels can be heavy.

What methods are used in shipping smaller items?

Items which fall below the size and weight requirements for freight will be shipped using various available common carriers. For the most part, we will use carriers such as USPS, FedEx, and UPS for shipments since they cover most of our delivery locations. We do reserve the right to use other carriers in an attempt to make shipments more affordable for our customers.

What if our dog chews on the kennel?

Our kennels are made out of wood, and are created for dogs that have been trained. If your dog does chew on the kennel, we sell individual parts such as kennel tops, bottoms, sides, and doors that can be replaced by the customer.

In an attempt to take a defensive stance, we suggest applying lemon or Nature's Miracle® No-Chew Bitter Taste Dog Spray, to the inside of the kennel to help alleviate potential chewing.

Is the anything to protect the bottom of the kennel?

We do cover all parts of the kennel with hand-rubbed poly. However, if you would like more protection from accident, we advice purchasing a crate pan from your local pet supply store. Our crates are designed to fit the standard sized crate pans sold by Mid-West Homes 4 pets. (www.midwesthomes4pets.com)

Toy (ICrate Pan)
X-Small (Life Stage Pan)
Small (Ovations Pan)
Medium (Ovations Pan)
Intermediate (Life Stages Pan)
Large (Ovations Pan)
X-Large (Ultima Pro Pan)
XX-Large (Solutions Series Pan)

Are your kennel rods coated/painted for rust protection?

In short, No. However, not being painted adds the rustic look and allows you to use steel wool to clean rust off of the bars. To clean just gently rub the bars in an up/down motion with steel wool to bring back the original look.

Why are you production/delivery times so long?

Our production times are based on the current production schedule. This production schedule can increase or decrease at any given moment. As such, we have listed the production time of a moderate schedule. If you would like a more accurate representation of our current schedule, please initiate a convo with us.

My item was damage is shipping, now what?

First, we will work diligently to solve and remedy the case with the common carrier which damaged the item. Normal cases take a few days to a couple of weeks to settle with the common carrier. More extreme case can take longer, and we are unable to predict the length of time that it may take.

In a cases of lower costs to reproduce, and that settles quickly, we will begin either remaking the order, or issuing a refund. In instances where conciderable costs are involved with reproduction, or refunds, it may take conciderably more time, due to the length of time associated with the common carrier settlement.
