Who We Are

The idea for River L Custom Kennels was realized in 2017 when owners Tim and Jessica Bowns adopted their two month old Great Dane, Bella. Only 30 lbs at the time, Bella quickly grew out of her medium and then large wire crate. A giant wire crate was an eye sore and was just not going to work in the house. Although Bella did not destroy any of the furnishings in their home when left alone, she did become anxious, pacing the house and gathering towels and any blankets she could find. The Bowns’ quickly realized Bella was much more comfortable and relaxed when she was secured in her crate.

Tim and Jessica worked together to design a wooden crate large enough to fit Bella’s needs. When the crate was completed they were pleasantly surprised to find friends and family loved the crate and asked the Bowns’ if they could design a crate to fit their pets specific needs.


Tim has an eye for detail and handcrafts each crate to meet the customers specifications while Jessica enjoys putting the final touches of paint or stain on each piece. The Bowns’ are providing customers with a beautiful addition to their home that fits the owners as well as each pets needs.
