I try to cancel the order the same day I placed it because I changed my mind on it. my little dog is blind and the little step would confuse him. Unfortunately they had already shipped it and I wasnt home to refuse the package. It even got delivered to my neighbors and opened before I could even receive it so I was stuck with it. Will be donating because its useless to me but hopefully helps some other animal.
Pros: It contains my baby puppies Cons: (1) it doesn’t contain my baby puppies; (2) the metal wires are not welded on. They come off. This creates gaps that small dogs and puppies can escape through. (3) the pins/rods are flimsy and they bend. I will have to cut them to take this pen apart. (4). The panels cannot be assembled easily. They don’t line up. (5) the panels cannot be connected at a 90 degree angle. So if you were thinking about building a square pen, forget it. It’s polygons and nothing else! (6). It’s a bear to clean! (7) how do I throw this away? I have no idea! One use and it’s outlived it’s ability to be reused for all of the aforementioned reasons. (8) the coat does not match the construction — this thing is CHEAPly assembled! (9) it’s effing LOUD! I got used to it but holy smokes. The way this thing rattles is unnecessary. Conclusion: I bought this because IBIS changed their mold to eliminate the rods and that weakened the integrity and safety of the pens. This was not a suitable alternative but it got me through the summer. I cannot repeat with this pen. It’s trash. I have duct tape holding together most of the panels where the wires came off just to prevent escapes. I would LOVE for someone to come pick it up and haul it off because I don’t even think recycling day will take it. I’ll probably have to pay a junk hauler to remove it. So disappointing.
Super easy to assemble, sturdy and attractive!! You can set it up so many different ways because it’s so easy to move around! We were able to set it up half in our covered porch and half on a grassy area! It keeps our pups safe and enclosed! We love it!
I really love this playpen, and my pet X does as well. Great quality and very sturdy!
The gate has a poor latch and actually pops open if my boy jumps at the gate. The gate hinges should also be longer because they also fall out if you aren’t careful. Will just get zip ties or something to hold it but very annoying that I have to for this price.
Good price and size, but if you have small pets that are jumping and trying to push the pen, it may cause injury. Our Yorkie got her paw stuck in the corner of the cage where there are clear gaps and ended up going to the emergency vet.
Easy to setup & very sturdy. Works well in keeping my French & English Bulldogs secure when camping. I like how the connecting rod can be pushed into the ground to add stability. I’ve had the other less expensive wire pens & my 2 could push them down even with anchors. I would give 5 stars if the gate was designed a bit more securely. The hinges come out fairly easily if pushed up & my 2 can accomplish this - I’ve found a fix by using a zip tie around bottom hinge for now. I hope to see if a small bead weld might be a better fix. I still recommend this product
The gate is noisy, if the dogs paw at the gate to get out! The gate is the only complaint, it could be revised to keep the tin sounds from rattling!
Love this fencing. I have 2 small dogs ( under 10 lbs). Very easy and quick to assemble, easy to rearrange configuration and easy access gate.
Good product. Easy to put together. I found another one, bigger for the same price (sale)
