I wasn't sure at first how this was to be put together but when I opened the box it is all together so just pick a site you want it, set it up then there are 4 attachments to put at the end to attach all 8 panels together, after that they give you 8 stakes to put over the bottom of each panel to anchor in the ground. I put this next to my patio as a potty training area for my little Westie. I added playground sand so it was easier to clean up the feces as well as easier for her to urinate and it not be just sopping wet. I will add more sand in another month as it has worked out so well. She has been doing the exercise pen for 2 weeks now and sits at the back door to go out and she almost immediately does her business in the pen and I open the gate to allow her to walk out on her own. I urge anyone trying to train their puppy or adoptive dog that has been in a cage on concrete to do this besides putting gates up to contain them to one area in the home . It has made play time outside just that play time and then when I put her in her exercise pen she goes then she knows she is allowed out to play. It really has been a life saver. So for small dogs or puppies, adoptives, or dogs that are hard to train, get an exercise pen their size to train them, they are in the pen and you can rest that they cannot get away from it. So buy one for their size. It anchors down so it doesn't give or blow away if the puppy jumps up on it. I crate trained her from the day I came home. Crate training in a quiet area helps them control bladder for training. She is in 8 hours through the night as well if I have to do errands. She was 3 mos old when I got her she is 4 months old now.
I actually am using this pen for my dog to block an opening in the fence around my patio making a smaller secure area away from the rest of the yard. It seems as strong and durable as chain link but I can easily fold it up and put it away when she is old enough to have access to the whole yard. The low cost shipping on this heavy item was a big plus too. Very impressed.
Bought this ex pen for my peace of mind when I want my dogs in a certain area. I can open the garage, stretch out the pen and they stay secured but can still see what's happening. I take it to my daughter's when we visit to keep the fluffers secure in her unfenced yard. Also, it's high enough for little 'jumpers'. I plan to get another one for a larger area. And, I paid almost no shipping! This heavy pen would have been so expensive to ship. Thanks Overstock.com!
