Oh ya, you will definitely want concrete, or some type of sub flooring, ESPECIALLY if your dogs are diggers. They will kill the grass very quickly with the digging, walking, peeing, and pooping in one area. Then all you'll have is a mud fest.......yuck!

Even in our kennel we have concrete pavers for flooring. I scoop and hose it down.....easy peasy

I'm watching this thread closely. I want to put something like this up when we get a dog.

My parents have an indoor/outdoor run set up off of their detached garage - they used river run gravel in the outside portion to minimize mud without the hassle of having to pour concrete. The river run packs down quite nicely.

Hmmm I will have to remember this.

We have a 10x10 dog run with a dog house for each dog in the corner of our yard. Half of it will eventually be covered to keep snow/rain off it. Schaffer's an escape artist, though, so it's lined with bricks (around the corners) and has giant boards against the bottom of the chain link. lol
Random, but I think both dogs' favorite place to be is sun bathing on the roof of their dog houses.
