Questions & Answers

What does the 36" version weigh of this gold zinc x-pen weigh? It reads in the listing "7 pounds" and that can't possibly be correct. I own the smaller 24" version and it weighs about 12 pounds (as listed here). I now have issues lifting things. It can't be too heavy, but I need an accurate weight.

need a 3x3 playpen for small dog

Can I put 2 together to make a larger pen?
Answer by ChewyMay 29, 2021
Multiple pens may easily be joined together to create larger exercise spaces. You also have the option to combine your pen with a crate (sold separately) to create a roomy yet secure place for your pet. Please see the image below for reference.

stretched out, what it the total length of the pen?
Answer by ChewyDec 20, 2017
A single Pen has a total of 8 panels that are each 24 inches wide. If the Pen is straightened out, it's total length is 192 inches.

Still excellent

This is a great product, especially for the for the money. I have one of these exact gold zinc Midwest pens circa 2008, and after reading the reviews where people are upset about the "gold color" I believe the older ones were powder coated. Even so, the new color is still gold in comparison to black; the gold color gives a less harsh look in a house than the classic black wire crates or pens. This is very well made; it comes with hooks to adjust it, and it can be configured many ways. In my opinion Midwest makes the best quality crates and pens.

Used to construct escape-proof pen for cat surgery

These pens are great. I had gotten a 48-in one for my dog years ago and purchased a 30-inch one when I needed to find a way to keep my cat safely confined after two knee surgeries. I learned some tricks after the first time and ended up with the perfect cat recovery area! First I set up the 30" pen in a square around a table of the same height. Then I attached two panels of the 48" pen to form the "roof", supported by the table. I attached foam pipe insulation around the bottom and where the "doors" and top meet to keep it from making too much noise if another pet or human bumps into it (one of his sisters ran into it and scared the daylights out of everyone the first time!). Zip-ties securely attach the sections of the top and sides that I didn't need to open. I used the walk-through gate section as a quick way to get to the litter box (attached a piece of cardboard since there's a furnace vent on the floor to the left and I didn't want litter going down it) and I left one side of where the ends of the gate meet in front to open and close for feeding and attention. Whatever your use might be, these are great sturdy pens!

Definitely NOT Gold

Although advertised as "Gold Zinc" this play pen is definitely not the gold but rather green, pink & purple-ish. I tried my luck but to no avail. It is easy to set up though, simply unfold it clip it & you're done. It also folds rather nicely for storage.

Not as sturdy as I’d have hoped for

I have two chihuahua puppies using this and they seem to be able to push the door open

Not worth it

I got this thinking it would be a great way to keep the puppy contained nearby while I do things around the house. Unfortunately the quality is sub-par and a latch came bent. He was also able to escape. He is currently only 16 lb and 1.5' tall... I plan to try to return.

Very substantial heavy duty dog pen

This gold dog pen is about twice the weight and strength of the black powder coated pens. This would work well with large dogs and bigger animals.

Perfect height and color

I needed something for my apartment balcony to blend in so it wasn't noticeable. The gold tone was perfect up against the wood railings. It is a perfect height to where my kitties won't attempt to climb onto the railing

Good for small dogs

I like this pen a lot. It’s easy for my people to get me in and out. I’m only 12 lbs but I can still move the sides and the black protectors don’t do much. A bigger dog could easily push it around on a hardwood floor.

Appears to have been used

I was under the impression I would be receiving a brand new item but the pens I ordered appear to have been used in the past. They have obvious signs of wear and tear such as dents, erosion, and fading coloring all around. The price doesn’t see to match quality. Very satisfied with how quickly they were delivered just was not expecting them to appear so run down.
