This small octagon pet pen is a safe place for your cat or small dog to romp around during travel or when you aren't able to supervise him or her during playtime. This pet pen is vented on all sides with an adjustable top for safety and comfort....more
We ordered this for our little 8 lb. pup. It arrived very quickly and is very easy to open and use. There's plenty of space for a pad to be placed inside and space to for the doggie to move around while in it. We will be using it when we travel and stay in motels as well as for camping trips. It folds to a very compact size and will take up very little space while traveling. So happy to have found this item on Overstock!
Bought for traveling. . folds down to a flat size. Had an optional cover that zips. Puppy loves it. I leave the door partially unzipped so she can enter when hungry. Also space for something to lie on. . Great play area when I have to go out and she cannot attend. I would recommend this for small dog or puppy. The breeder had the exact same one. . only the large size for holding their puppies and training papers. .

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Great quality with the exception of the roll-up screen door. If a pet scratches the area with the velcro strips they fall off. That is the only flaw with the product.
GREAT pet pen. I am using this pen instead of a cage. It just has an open feel and my puppy loves his "house"! The pen is high quality. My puppy is teething and has gnawed the pocket, it is still on and functional. This pen indestructible! Perfect for a pup!

We travel regularly with our little 5 pound Maltese. The small size of this playpen folds down to about 2 inches by 16 1/2 inches by 12 inches and easily fits into my carry-on bag. I add a couple of wee wee pads and a small fleece bed and we are good to go. I used it to potty train her to wee wee pads when she was a baby and it also was used as her bedroom at night since she was so tiny that she could not sleep with us for fear of rolling over on her while we were sleeping.
At airports, we have been able to pop it open and let her sit in it when storms or mechanical problems delay our flights. When at hotels, we set up her wee wee pads on the bathroom floor and then leave out her playpen in the bedroom, with the fleece bed in it, for quiet naps. She loves to walk in and out at will and gathers some of her little toys with her.
The pen has a lid...great for when we are at the beach and don't want her to get sunburned. We place a beach towel over the top to keep the sun out, since it is just dark screen. We actually have several of these since she likes them so much. We keep one in the house (she loves to take naps inside and also run around inside like a maniac and then run back out again. One for the car...again, great for long, unanticipated, waits; and, one for travel (the newest one) so that we are always prepared. Many places will let her be out with us if she's in the playpen, even where they do not usually allow dogs. If we are stuck somewhere with limited potty options, I've even taken her into the ladies room and thrown wee wee pads inside for a quick potty break, when necessary.
They can also be washed, but need to have a large enough washer. I've placed it, loosely folded, into my extra large front loading washer (a top loader will bend it to an unusable mess) but it has sometimes bent a bit and caused a small tear or two where the wire goes over the fabric. It's so light that we have found that placing it into the bathtub or shower works better, using mild soapy water. After rinsing, you can blot it with a towel and then drape it, fully open, over a chair and it dries within a few hours.
I work in the pet industry and have tried hundreds of products, including folding playpens, and this is the very best of all of them. Seriously, I can't imagine life without it! She has had one since she was 3 months old and 1 lb, 12 oz, so it is a normal part of her life. If you get your dog gradually accustomed to this and keep all the experiences happy...leaving it open and giving rewards while she/he learns to like it, for example, even an older dog will become comfortable in it. Look at training sites on the internet if you don't know how to do this.
If your dog is generally unruly, the pen will just be an expensive dog toy; however, if you have a well-behaved dog, this will become an incredibly convenient tool for taking your little guy or gal with you.
This was the perfect item for traveling with our new puppy. We needed something compact and portable, and the small size is quite spacious for a small dog. Made of high quality tent/tarp material, and seems like it will hold up to years of use. Kind of a challenge at first to figure out the puzzle of folding it back up, but pretty easy once you get the hang of it. Since I couldn't find it anywhere in the product description, here's the approximate FOLDED SIZE:
18"h x 12"w

I have two Chihuahuas that are approximately 8-10lbs each and was wondering which size would accommodate both dogs (only for sleeping while traveling/visiting).
Thank you for your assistance.

How is the bottom attached. I would like to take my cat outside in this and need to make sure she can not get out. Some pens use velcro.ronee7 on Mar 1, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
