We just got a new French Bulldog puppy after our Neo Mastiff had to be put down from brain cancer. I had a childhood dog whom was an extremely neurotic Beagle and had to be kennel trained, so I was extremely familiar with crate training although our Neo did not require so. I never quite liked the "feel" of the wire kennel/ crate seemed a bit like puppy jail so when I came across the Pet Gear Pet Pen I warily thought I'd give it a try, plus the price was less than the traditional crate. Now, I feel much better about our puppies daytime quarters, she has plenty of space and LOVES her lil' home, I'll never go back to the traditional crate again...
I would recommend this to a friend!

I bought the size small pen for my full grown 15lb pug as a bed/pen. It was way too small. It was such a small space, I feel like it could only work for a small breed puppy and not for too long of a time...I think i'll order the size up for my dog.

I recently lost my beloved Shih Tzu, and will be getting a new little fur baby in the coming months. This pen looked perfect, and after reading the reviews, I ordered the small. Love that it folds into nothing flat, and will be easy to travel with. It assembles in literally a snap, and love the zipper removable "lid". Will be able to leave her in there when I take a shower - or make a trip to the grocery store, while she gets used to her new surroundings. Also can use it in our courtyard for her to get some filtered sun and play. Can't wait for my new puppy to start using it.

It looked promising

This pen looked promising.
I had my 10 week old Doxie in it for 1 hour and she escaped by moving the zippers and climbing through the hole. The zipper was broken in less than an hour. I now leave it there and she goes in and out of it instead of throwing it out.
Buy something else.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

We bought this the night we came home with our toy schnauzer puppy. Yes, it is much bigger than him, but we use it all the time - when we are away from the house for errands,camping, visiting friends, traveling,as a tiny puppy while outside (before he was old enough to play in the yard) . He uses it for napping when I am busy around the house. All the time. We love it!

This pet play pen is a great aid as my cockapoo transitions from her life in the 'farm' with her marvelous breeder to her new apartment life with me. I find that this is a great alternative to a regular crate. It gives her more space to play around inside it while serving the same purpose.
