    This is the same pen I used for Jewel when she had her ACL surgery because we too did not want Jewel to be in her crate 24/7. It is very light weight (plastic) and durable.

    I took these pics this morning. I'm still fine-tuning the set up but I like how I can have the crate flow into the play-pen. This way, Finn has much more room to stretch his legs during the day. I will probably place some pee-pads in the pen area too b/c he cannot hold his bladder for the long stretches of time that I'm not home but at least he won't soil his crate space and then have nowhere to go.

    The cool thing about this pen is you can add more panels to it if you need more room.

    Out of the box no. They make supports that go across the top that will lock the shape in place or you can make them yourself with thin trim board you get from Lowes or Home Depot.

    I've been putting some pieces of furniture against the panels b/c they would be easily knocked down if jumped on.

    I also used this pet pen when Boris was a puppy and it was a godsend. It's not the sturdiest pen, but I put it in a corner and weighted it down and had zero issues.

    Just a heads up we had Bella in a pen connected to her crate and she got out. Did not have the doggy cam at the time but our only guess was that she jumped on top of the crate since it is lower than the pen . She had fun eating the kids Christmas candy from their stockings and we had a panic attack and a large bill to pay. Luckily they are both fine but just wanted to share. I know our Bella may be a little more agile them most bullies. Utley would never of been able to jump on top of the crate. Good luck and hope it works out.

    We used something like this when Orion was a baby. We had a total of 8 panels...but 6 was enough when we first brought her home. This was over 6 years ago....used many times. The last few years we used it to keep Orion OUT of the tomato plants.... and they are not made for long term outdoor use. They are now somewhere in a landfill I'm sure.

    Two summers of rain and the plastic snapped in half (we got them off of craigslist...so who know how they were stored before we got them.)





    Then we were given a playpen. That worked well for about 2 1/2 days. Until she learned how to get in and out of it herself.





    So we took that down right before Christmas. She is not happy. She loved to be in there with her stinky bears...but she was getting territorial any time Vegas walked by. She would run into the side of the playpen forcing it to move across the room. She literally threw herself into the side and moved it 1/2 way across the family room.


    So... out of the two options, I would agree with the 8 panel set up. The great thing about this is you can add to the setup. Add 4 more panels and you can include the kennel inside the pen. But...watch out if you have a bulldog like Orion. She figured out that by jumping ontop of her kennel....she could jump over the pen that was supposed to keep her contained.

    yeap.....its called an extra room from ceiling to floor, wall to wall, with tile floors Now on to more seriousness, I use a crate for mine while I am gone. It keeps them out of trouble and gives me piece of mind. Good luck

    She actually stopped pulling on the den when we leave her in there, maybe she realizes there is nothing she can do and we will eventually come back.

    This is the pen I currently use (36" version)
