Dog Pen

While it might also be known as a playpen, a dog pen is not only for playing; as a matter of fact, they are great for dogs of all ages. For a puppy, a pen could be an enclosed space that offers more room than a crate and can still be used as a housetraining tool. Then there is space for puppy pads, water and food bowls, and a bed. The same goes for adult dogs.

Dog pens are perfect if you are busy around the house or popping out to the store and do not want your dog to create trouble. You even have the option of popping up an outdoor pen and let him enjoy the pleasant weather and wind outside.

Dog Pen

 

What are some important features you need to consider while choosing a dog pen?

Most importantly, a pen for your puppy or dog should be easy to set up and take down, all while being robust and durable to withstand a little relocation and rough behavior of the pooch. Some considerations you need to remember are:

 

Portability

Transporting your pooch’s pen from one place to another might not seem to be a concern for settled people. But for people that keep moving from one place to another needs to choose a playpen that is easy to take down and reassemble on the go. These pens need to be light and easy to store.

 

Materials

Mostly, indoor playpens are made of metal, mesh, or plastic, each serving different purposes. For a puppy or dog that does not show aggressive or destructive behaviors, a plastic pen could very well do the job. For calmer dogs, you can opt for mesh pens. If you, however, have an aggressive dog, it is best you opt for a pen that is made of metal since metal is the most durable of the three and will be able to handle the roughness of your canine.

 

What are some of the best dog pens you can purchase for your pooches?

Some great dog pens available in the market today are:

 

BestPet Heavy Duty Pet Playpen

This playpen by BestPet is one of the best outdoor playpens for pooches. It is quite heavy-duty, so elements like bad weather will not affect the quality of the pen for years to come. Quick disinfection once every few weeks will simply add more life to it.

The pen features an 8-panel construction that you can shape in different manners like L-, squared- or octagonal-shaped, without the need for extra parts. The 8th panel is the actual door with a fixed panel so that puppies do not escape through even if the door is open. Because of its modularity, it is an ideal pen for dogs.

 

MidWest Exercise Pen

MidWest is a famous brand that is known for supplying the best pet equipment. The brand offers high-quality pens for dogs that are fitted with features like corner stabilizers, ground anchors, and double-latch door access. The pen is made of sturdy and solid materials and folds nearly flat, making it possible to carry around during travels.

The pen is available in five different height settings. You do not require any additional tools to set it up; all you have to do is assemble it. You can set the pen up in any shape you like. The thick bars are quite impeccable and have a gold zinc finish.

 

Precision Soft Side Play Pen

This is a soft-side playpen that has proved many pet owners wrong. Unlike what it might seem like at first sight, this pen is actually quite strong and sturdy. You can have your dogs running against it and cats jumping on it; the soft pen will take every challenge and survive perfectly without any scratch.

Since this is an indoor pen, it is perfect for small- and medium-sized dogs. Of course, large-sized dogs would not feel a lot comfortable in it. The pen folds and unfolds at the same time, thereby making it perfect for frequent travelers.  Even the bottom panel can be taken off and washed separately.

 

IRIS Indoor and Outdoor Plastic Pet Pen

This is a cute-looking puppy den that is manufactured from the US. The size of the pen is perfect for both indoor and outdoor use. Heavy-duty and durable plastic is used to construct this pen; hence you can rest assured knowing that it will never rust, even under frequent rains.

The 8-panel construction is quite solid and features rubber feet to protect the flooring of your house. You can easily fold the sturdy and light pen and take it anywhere along with you. The plastic material can be cleaned and disinfected with ease. Currently, the pen is available in two sizes and many different colors like chrome, blue, green, white, and chocolate.

 

Richell Convertible High Pet Playpen

This might look like a simple playpen, but it is fitted with a wide range in ingenious features that will simply make your life a lot easier. It is made of plastic that is extremely durable and can be used both ways. You will see no contamination, germs or mold growth on the pen. The mat provides a comfortable footing to your pooches.

The bars stand vertical so that your canine cannot jump over it. A safety lock is also installed on the pen so that your smart dog cannot escape. The panels can be laid out as a square or rectangle, or even a hexagon. Alternatively, you can convert the pen into a room divider or a pet gate as well.

You do love your pooch, but this does not mean that you trust him. From licking plates clean and scuffing floors to jumping on couches, it is really difficult to keep your canine under control. In such cases, getting a playpen for your dog will not only provide space for your pooch to run around, but you will also have to worry less about your furry friend getting itself into trouble. The best playpens offer a lot of versatile features and made of durable materials.
