Rated 3 out of 5 by JoeFox Needs Reinforcement
I bought 2-36" gates to attach for my jumpy rat terriers. Quality is average. I used this outside under a canopy, so the ground anchors were obsolete. Corner stabilizers work ONLY for the octagon configuration and not for any other; therefore, I gave them instead to my puppies as chew toys. I reinforced the exercise pen with bricks all along the bottom of the panels. Except for the door, I probably could have purchased a roll of galvanized wire at Home Depot for half the price and it would have done the trick. Lazy purchase on my part. If I had the time, I probably would have done the latter. Boxes arrived a day late and instructions were easy to follow. I recommend this product for totally chilled or comatose dogs. If you have a large dog or one with any strength, it will probably knock over the panels. I give this product 3 stars because it is flimsier than I expected, it needed reinforcement and it is average for an online purchase. I recommend this product for anyone who wants a quick fix or doesn't have the time to construct a sturdier version.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JulietteB Exercise Pen
I have a 5 and 1/2 month old shih tzu. I am disabled and there are some days that I just cannot physically keep up with my puppy's activities. I purchased this pen with a completely different plan in mind. I planned on using it as an enclosure, in my garage, around his wee wee pad. Basically it would be used as his bathroom. I fell in love with it after it was set up, as did my puppy. I now have it set up in my family room which allows my puppy the opportunity to play with his toys while I rest on the sofa. He is happy to hop in through the gate and play.
My one disappointment is that I wish it was a bit sturdier. Thankfully, he is not able to collapse it inwardly, on himself, but he is able to push on the sides and move it across the room.
All in all, a good product for the price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Spin Not stable enough for indoors
The 42 inch Ex-pen is not stable enough for inside. The
plastic seam joiners that are to be attached do nothing. In fact, one came off and my puppy was chewing on it. I took them all off. The 42" height adds to the instability. Smaller dogs that can use shorter height pens might be fine.
My puppy is a three month old Spinone female about 30 some pounds. This product would be fine for outdoors as metal stakes are included. I called the company to make sure the "stabilizers" were correctly installed;they were. I was told the pen was for outside. If I had known that, I would not have planned to use it inside. I am going to stabilize with pvc pipe. I have to brace the pen with objects, so it does not shift and move all over the floor. Without additional bracing , I think she could upend it in the future. I like the door;it is convenient. The pen folds down easily and isn't too heavy. The company needs to figure out a better bracing system or advertise it for outdoor use only.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Grandmama 42" high pens are great plant protectors
I got 5 of the 42" high pens and lined them up from the gutter at the corner of the house along the length of the back yard and around about 10 feet of the side yard to keep my 6-month-old labradoodle from eating my plants and fruit trees and digging in the garden dirt and eating the rocks on the side. The stakes keep it stable so it does not fall over. I still have room to throw the chuck-it ball and give him some exercise. I might get another one to surround the air conditioner to keep him from chewing the foam off the pipes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lizd Good product
We are very happy with the exercise pen. It is exactly as described. I like the black ecoat coating. It makes it easy to clean and looks nice. This pen should hold up a long time. Very flexible and easy to set up

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cindo Fast shipping and solid quality!
Shipped right away but always fast shipping from Chewy :) Use it for outdoor parties and when doggies need temporary containing. I use it for three dogs (two 16lbs and one 24lbs) and its just enough space for them to not be tight. All three can individually lay out or drink and eat within. For longer containment periods considering buying another one to connect it making for a bigger containment. Loved the thick gauge of gate which makes for a sturdy feel and the door is most convenient. Despite gauge being thick it is not overly heavy and easily folds to transport in car.
