Take a look at Tarter Farm and Ranch  Equipment Elite Series Dog Kennels. You buy the panels you need and put them together.
You can build 5' x 10' or 10' x 10'. They are all welded  and powder coated and corrosion resistant. Mine are 2 years old and not a speck
of rust. I attached 4x4's across the top and put a metal roof. They just sit on the slab. Very heavy . No need to bolt to slab.
I paid aprox. $550. per kennel. I saved on the second one because it shares a panel with the first one.

Very nice looking set up.   How many dogs you usually keep in each kennel?

Mine are 10'x10'. I keep a bull dog and cur dog together in one kennel  and a female cur by her self in the other.

Good looking set up. Was that for personal use or did you build and sell it?

Look up Behlen Magnum kennels. They manufacture livestock panels, feeders and such but make a real good kennel too that holds up to rough dogs. Your local large feed store should be able to get them.

They offer both Powder Coated and Galvanized. Spend the extra money and get the Galvanized ones if you buy them. The Powder Coated ones WILL rust out in about 2-3 years if you have male dogs in them. I went through three 10' x 10' pens before I figured out to buy the Galvanized ones. My pens are now 8-9 years old and not a spot of rust.

I custom ordered the front panel to have a door at each end and put an extra panel down the middle so I have (2) 5' x 10' runs. I can't pen my dogs together , so this works for me.

I can't use chain link pens, my dogs chew through them and will beat you to the truck. So I wanted a pen to put them in that I KNEW they would be in when I got back. These fit the bill. They are pricey, a standard 10' x 10' pen will run about $1,000. But if you think enough of your dogs, they are worth the money.

Just for mine at the house, good for getting dogs up off the ground and easy to clean
