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 - $300, dependant 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. Residential delivery, with liftgate service is available for an additional $168. We do not profit from any delivery charges.

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, you can request a repair quote by contacting is with a convo request.

Is the anything to protect the bottom of the kennel?

We do cover all parts of the kennel with handrubbed 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 yhe standard sized crate pans.

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.

Why are you production/delivery times so long?

Our production times are based on the most labor intensive production style (antiquing). As such, each layer requires 24 hour curing time before the next layer can be applied. Rushing this process can have an adverse effect on the finished product. Other styles may complete production and be delivered sooner based on our production schedule.

What if my dog/pet tries to chew on the wood of my purchased products?

There are a few things you can do in this instance. First, make sure your pet is getting proper exercise, and has other items to play with. Second, a natural approach is to rub lemon on the parts of the wood exposed to the pet. Third, a topical product can be used to discourage chewing. This product can be found at the following link.
