You can buy galvanized pipe, but it should be put on with proper fixtures on the bottom of the upright, you can also stretch air line cable along the bottom weaving it in and out every two foot or so, either way if your dogs like to dig they can still get out, probably the cheapest and simplest solution is to buy chicken wire and dig a trench under the fence to the inside of the run and bury it, you can wire a foot or so of the chicken wire to the bottom of the fence then take it thru the bottom on the fence at least two foot and bury….depending on what size run you are putting in it might be easier to put a regular kennel run up, if you want to do it right check with Crest Line Kennel Runs..

    yes you’re right. without the bottom rail for it to attach to the dogs will just push their way out of the bottom. you can get the parts you need at lowes or home depot. you need to get two pieces that attach to the corner poles and then the rail goes into the socket on that. you can also get the wirelike ties that fastens it to the rail. fasten every couple of feet to make sure it is good and tight. any slack will allow them to get out.

    I am not sure. I had bought some tool room caging and it works great. It is welded chain link that is welded to a frame they measure 5′ x 9′ and they bolt together.

    Yes, you can buy it all seperately, either at fencing supply stores or hardware stores.
    The actual chain link is the inexpensive part. The posts, connectors and rails are all seperate purchases and the most expensive portion.
    The least expensive option is to buy all seperately, at a Lowe’s type of store and assemble it yourself.

    Sure. You would need to by chain link top rail pipe, top rail pockets and clamps. You then cut the top rail pipe to fit between your upright posts and clamp in place. It should look just like your top rail, but be on the bottom of the fence. Then wire-tie the chain link fabric to the bottom just like the top.
