This is a good enclosure but for a cat with claws, she needs to be in our sight all the time. I was hoping to have some freedom for her and me. Should have gone with something metal I guess. Also shading for very sunny climates is not possible unless you reverse the bottom and top and them that presents another problem. So, would recommend to folks who have an animal content to be somewhat confined. Cats not so much!
I have a 9lb Dachshund and he's escaped this thing every time. He's not an agressive dog at all but this thing needs to be fully enclosed to contain even small dogs. Even when fully enclosed he jumps on the wall and it will fully collapse, it's not sturdy at all, and the zippers on the floor of it often separate allowing the dog to escape and make it hard to unzip and put back together. Lastly, this thing is impossible to fold back up for storage. They don't provide any instructions, and the image they provided in a similar question above isn't nearly detailed enough. Overall not worth the cost.
I needed some where for my small dogs to hang out when I leave the house. This is perfect. There is room for 2 beds, food and water and toys (of course). They love it and I can rest assured when I leave home.
I came home from a short trip, 15-minute trip to pick up my grandson from school. My little Yorkie was able to get the mesh rooftop unzippered and get out of the playpen. I will never feel safe leaving her in this playpen unless I am home and watching her activity.
We appreciated the easy setup and takedown of these pens and they require only a small storage space. I used two of these playpens for two of my cats who had became disabled. My 12 year old kitty, who is recovering from a stroke, needs periods of supervised play and exercise along with unsupervised confinement to avoid falls down the stairs, off high furniture, etc. She uses the small one to sleep in and the larger one as the day gym. Prior to this use, my oldest kitty, who had became parapalegic at 14 years old, used the smaller pen as a safe haven to be away from the other cats when he wanted rest. They have both loved these playpens and the other cats are full of envy.
Better quality than they used to be. Previous ones had a Velcro bottom that the cats could get out of. This one has a zipper bottom. Much better!!
This is a perfect pen for my 3 Papillons. I can even put their soft sided dog crate in the pen leaving the crate door open for them to go in and out. However......there is 1 thing about it that drives me crazy. It is a complete booger to fold back up. I have used it multiple times and I is crazy hard to fold back up properly. If you accidentally fold it wrong, it will render the pen useless. So keep the instructions close by when putting it away.
I like the pet pen very much, but the top zipper has failed in less than 6 months.
We bought this for our brand-new Corgi puppy. It's large enough for her to play in and get some exercise, but small enough that it sits beside the desk at work. It's unobtrusive in a law office that is pet friendly.
This is my second playpen order. I have one outside and one inside. My beagle just had puppies and loves the security of the enclosure while still being able to see us. I love how the bottom zips out so the little ones can feel the grass underneath their paws. This is nicer than playpen made for my babies 30 years ago!
