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 luluyepez Midwest gates are perfect containments for our 2 little pups.
Great buy! We have 5 of these Midwest gates used to cut off access to the pool in our large yard. And they are so portable. When it comes time to mowing the lawn, we just fold them up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by animalmom1225 Sunning area
My baby likes to lie in the sun. I don't always like to wait outside with her, so I got this pen. I like that it's portable, so if I am working in my yard or if the sun goes behind a tree or she gets too hot, I can easily move it. We live in an area where it rains a lot. I got this so I could leave it outside during the rain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KellyB Perfect for travel!
This was the best thing ever when we took our babies camping, instead of keeping the dogs on leashes while sitting outside we were able to let them relax and run around. Worked perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kirsten Awesome as gate!
I have not used this as a pen, yet. I have it blocking the exit to our raised porch off so our chug can go out on the porch, be outside, but be in a safe and large place. However, we have left it outside and it's expose to the elements. So far, it's holding up great! The only thing I would say is the door that opens may slip open if you have a smart or strong pup. I just got a little carabiner clip that goes over the door pull handle and connects to part of the pen and it can't open without thumbs. ;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eldonne Great!
This is exactly what I was looking for to create an enclosed area for our pug puppy. It is well made, easy to set up, and a great price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ccdivr lightweight and flexible
I have a little Maltese who weighs nothing and this is perfect for a small area in my yard right out the back door. I don't even need the grounding posts and can move it around it is so flexible. I am not sure how it would be for a more aggressive bigger dog but its perfect for puppies and small dogs...i bought two more..

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jackson Purchasing a 2nd One
Received this yesterday and am purchasing a second one today.
Setting it up is a no brainer. Folding it up and taking it in is not problem at all.
We have two 10lb dogs and this will be perfect for them. It is so sturdy that we don't even need to use the stakes.
