Origin: [See Channel, Canal.]
A kennel is a structure or shelter for dogs. A kennel is a doghouse, run, or other small structure in which a dog is kept. American English often uses the word "doghouse" in this context; in British English the term "kennel" is preferred. Used in the plural, the kennels, the term means any building, collection of buildings or a property in which dogs are housed, maintained, and bred.
