We use this to increase the fencing on our 2nd story patio and to gate off the kitchen. For both purposes, it works well. We do not use this as a pen nor would we.
This pen is fine for a dog with low energy, but it’s a bit too lightweight for true containment. It doesn’t stay put when my pup is jumping against the panels. Go with a heavy duty pen for training.
Have several sections of this fence, and have used it for a long time. Good quality-- nice to use since it folds every 2', and stores very nicely when not being used.
I love this wire pen. I bought five that I link together to create a bigger enclosure. They are very light and easy to take with me when I am visiting family, and I am able set up an enclosure for my mini schnauzer almost anywhere.
I purchased this as a replacement for a plastic one that my puppy chewed his way through. It has been holding up great! I should be able to use it for many more years!
For the price, I honestly didn’t have high expectations for this pen. I mainly needed something for inside the house until our puppy is better house trained and can be trusted to roam freely without me hovering. This is perfect for him to have a designated space when I am preoccupied with other things in the house. I love how easy it is to fold up and move, if I need to clean the floors or if we want to spend an evening out in the yard. I also love that it includes the ground stakes for anchoring outside. Our pup is a very small breed (mini schnauzer, yorkie mix) so he isn’t able to scoot this around inside the house (we have hard floors) and the stakes aren’t necessary for him outside either. Overall I am extremely pleased with this purchase, for our particular circumstances! But I will say for those with a larger/stronger breed this is flimsy and it’s not meant to be used as a full-time kennel.
Would like it to be sturdy like the crates are but the metal is very thin. Even when it is staked down it is flimsy
Even though I am using these gates around my bird feeders, I am preventing my dogs from eating the bird food. I have a question though. How do I attach the hooks to the gates since they only open on one end? The hooks are usually attached to one side. These were loose.
Just what I needed for my 2 chi girls to have an outdoor place to play. Easy to set up, easy to move
Overall I like this pen. It is easy to set up. It folds down flat for storage. It is tall enough I don't have to worry about my dogs jumping it but it is flimsy. They could knock it over pretty easily if they wanted to.
