Please remember to supervise your furry friend while using the playpen. This playpen is suitable for canine companions, feline friends, rabbits and other pets who weigh over 5 lbs.
I needed an attractive ex-pen for our bunny. This is very cute. the panels are a breeze to assemble. The screws were hard to get in without stripping them for the hinge assembly. I would recommend laying the door panel flat on the ground and attaching the door that way
We actually got two of them, plus the expansion kit with 2 sections. One for family room, one for bedroom for sleeping. Very sturdy considering the light weight and plastic. Easy to assemble. Far less ugly that many of these, and can easily see our puppy while see's inside. Door and latch works great, and the screw-downs for the latch are very important for our smart puppy who quickly learned how to bang against the door to get out - the screw-down for latch prevents this. Super easy to move when needed.
We needed a relatively small pen for our 7 pound dog. This is exactly what we were looking for and was easy to put together.
We got this corral to contain a new ShihTzu puppy in our kitchen area and use it for her sleep quarters at present. It is well made with an opening gate and easy to assemble. You can buy additional sides to enlarge for outdoor use.
I have multiple dogs and need to separate them at feeding time so this seemed like a good solution on Chewy.com and indeed it is. My Cavaliers like it and go into it when it is not being used for feeding. The door is nice because you don't have to lift dogs in and out. It does not fold flat without being dismantled, which is not an easy task. It was not easy to figure out how to put it together. If folding flat is a key need for you, this pen is not going to work. It is extremely light so it has no structural integrity if a dog pushes on it. It is easily moved around and the shape deforms easily and it might even be pushed over under stress. I would not use it for containment in a multiple dog household if I were not present to supervise. The pros: light, easy to manage, dogs like it The cons: doesn't fold flat, hard to put together, so light that even small dogs can push it around. Not really suitable for strong, active dogs, or in a multi-dog household, without supervision.
This pen is the perfect size and well made for small to mediums size. You can add panels to make larger.
Very easy to assemble, it comes with a cute door with latches to keep locked if needed; not too heavy.
I purchased the IRIS 4-Panel Playpen with door as a gift for a family with a new puppy. I own a pen myself and it's been very useful and still like new after two small dogs and 11 years. The pen arrived at the appointed time and required the gate latch to be installed. (Mine did not.) The screw holes for the gate latch did not line up and it required making an adjustments. Not sure if quality control is an issue at the manufacturer's site. My family chose to live with the rigged playpen.
Looks like it would be good but it did not come with any kind Of the screws to attach the gate.
Great playpen! Just wish I didn't have to put it together. :)
