Honestly, I only have one 30Ē expen, and rarely use that one because itís heavy to drag around. While itís true that any of my dogs COULD jump over a 24Ē expen, the fact is, not one of them ever challenge it, and never have. We even use this height when we are camping. No, we certainly never leave them unsupervised outdoors with this, but again, they COULD get out if they wanted, and they never try.
One thing to keep in mind is that puppies rarely jump out of expens anyway. If they are bent on escape, they typically are climbers. And if they can climb to the top of a 24Ē pen, they can climb to the top of a 48Ē pen. When they get to the top, they stand a MUCH bigger chance of hurting themselves jumping or falling off the other side. If you have an escape artist, IMO, you are much better off crating them, getting a cover for the expen, or gating them in a room with a gate that they canít climb.
