Can I use composite decking for an outside dog kennel floor?

I am putting up a new 10 x 10 outside dog kennel. I need to place it on a "floor" so the dog can't dig under the wire fence kennel. I can use cement sidewalk blocks but they get rocky and uneven with the freeze/thaw cycle (been there, done that). I can do cement but fairly expensive. I don't want a treated wood floor because it may make any urine smell worse as the urine soaks into the wood. I have thought of crushed gravel as a base with cement sidewalk blocks on top or making a floor with composite deck boards that could be scrubbed and hosed off better than treated wood decking. Has anyone ever used the composite decking boards for this purpose?
