About Frisco Dog Exercise Pens

A Portable Playground

Whether you're a new puppy owner or your dog tends to get into everything, the Frisco Dog Exercise Pen gives him a safe place to play and rest. It can be used indoors to separate your pup from guests or keep him out of rooms that are off-limits for curious canines. And it's perfect for outdoor play, especially in yards without fences.

Built for Safety

Keeping your pet safe is the most important consideration. Two slide-bolt latches and an additional safety clip secure the door to prevent a daring escape. When you're outdoors, use the included anchors to keep the pen rooted in place. The sturdy wire panels have rounded corners and are covered in a durable, black e-coating.

Versatile Design

Practical design features make the Frisco Pen adaptable, reliable and easy to use. It comes with eight connected panels that can be arranged in several different configurations. You can even form two smaller pens with separate entryways. When it's in an octagon shape, the corner stabilizers can be used for extra support.

Easy to Transport and Store

The Frisco Dog Exercise Pen is made to fold flat for compact storage and portability. That makes it easy to take to the park or camping, and when you're done, you can pack it up into a space-saving, rectangular shape for storage in the car or at home.

When you attach a pen to a crate, do you have to remove the door of the crate, since the crate door opens outwards, into the pen?

The door of the crate doesn't have to be removed when combining the crate and pen.

Bella is now easier to find

Well, it works for a small size puppy. But I almost Freaked out she got her mouth stuck in it. She's only 8 weeks old. I am going to make a guard about 6 in up. To keep her from getting stuck. When they making this cage they need to make the bottom closer together. To keep small dogs getting their jaw stuck. It scared me so bad. I would never leave her in there for a long time. Buyer beware.

Best with Trained Dogs

I am ordering two more panels for a total of 6 because we have a temporary 60# dog and need more space than is used for our two Spaniel rescues, one a Cavalier King Charles and the other a Cocker. I like the movability of this product and the easy wayit can be reconfigured. We use it as the potty are. Our dogs are house trained, but we do not have a full fenced in yard, nor do we want to put in an "invisible" fence. Because our dogs are trained, we have had no problem with them trying to escape, climb over, under, or go through the wires. They know the fencing is a boundary area for them. We have it set up off our deck and they will go directly out into the area, do their job, and return. During warm weather, we will spend time on the deck. The dogs will be with us on the deck and are able to go down to potty or just walk around. Even with the 20# Spaniels, though, this area is not really big enough for exercise, just potty. We take walks for that. For easy moving and reconfiguration, we don't use the stakes on the bottom, but rather leave small angles at each edge so that we can move it for cleaning the area and mowing. The fencing will stand on its own with the small angles between the frames, once all the pieces are connected. I recommend this for very small pets for temporary exercise or potty areas. For larger, trained pets, like ours, it is suitable for potty use and a few extra panels to enclose larger area. Again, I stress, this is not a permanent fence and should not be used that way. I do not recommend this for larger animals that are not boundary trained and who will try to escape. Buy a full kennel for those fur babies.

Great for puppies or post-op

I had the 36” version of this pen when my Standard Poodle was a puppy. I ended up getting rid of it after he was was potty trained and reliable in the house. He recently had a procedure, so I ordered the 48” version to make the recovery period (10 days no activity) easier. I love this pen, and it worked great in both instances. My one complaint is I wish that the gate was a little wider on the 48” version, it’s a little awkward to walk through.

Good for sectioning off yard.

I bought two of these to block off my garden from my two German Shepherd Dog puppies. It has worked great. Before this they loved getting into the raised bed and jumping on each other. Didn't do the tomatoes any good. Lol

Not for big dogs

I received my first product with rust on the door handles, chewy promptly sent me a new one to replace it. I received my new product and after one use it's already bent from use. I was excited to try this as a safe space for my 55# dog, but it's not strong enough. There was a toy apparently just outside the kennel and he managed to pull the soft plushie toy through the bars and this is how the bars bent. If a wire kennel bends under the force of a soft plush toy being pulled through the bars, then it should not be trusted to keep a dog in it unsupervised.

A pen to move across the tile

My puppy Frenchie needs to be supervised while in this playground pen. It is not safe. My little pup can move it clear across the living room. I do not recommend this enclosure. Instead, I recommend a kennel if the dog is to be left alone. Perhaps outside the playpen would be great for someone as it comes with little forks to pound into the ground. I just don't need this as I have a large kennel outside with a dog door to go in and out of the house. Being I purchased my new French Bulldog, I wanted everything safe for him. Kennels are more like dens. I much prefer my kennels. I'm sorry for this poor review.

Does The Job

Arrived bent and within minutes of being set up, had scratches where the black paint was already coming off. Mind you, this was before i put my bunny in the cage. Lost two stars for two issues, otherwise, it is functional. for the price, i would expect it to not be bent upon unboxing.

Exactly as expected--Would purchase again!

Works really well as intended/described (i.e. Not intended to house a large, aggressive dog!) but for kittens, pups, small dogs, etc. it's as it should be. Nice to be able to choose height!

Awesome Pen Overall

We bought this for our new puppy so he could have a safe space to be left alone if we could not supervise him directly. It is great for that purpose, and is very easy to set up and reconfigure the shape. As others have said, the ends of the vertical bars are a little sharp and will snag on clothes or carpets and would probably scratch hard floors. We set ours up so that our puppy has access to his crate from inside the pen (by attaching the pen directly to the crate) which has worked really well but revealed one drawback: there is no way to reconfigure the gate. It is set in one specific panel and there’s no way to make it swing in the opposite direction. If you were to lay the pen out flat on the floor, the gate is on the far right panel. So in order for us to have his crate/pen where we want them, we had to set it up so that the gate swings inward which is not working out very well. So we’ll have to get creative and move things around.
