I have this one and it is a good ex pen. Mine is 30" H. Many people suggest to buy the 36" in case your Hav likes to jump and get out ...

I bought this at baby's are us. I like it because it comes apart and can be used to block halls and doorways I also have a 36'' wire one. I only used them as a expin once or twice. I block doors and make room dividers.

All 3 of my ex-pens are Midwest, and I have no complaints. I have one 30", because people mentioned that Hav puppies sometimes climb out. My feeling now is that if you have a climber, they are going to get out of ANYTHING without a cover, and I'd rather have them fall off the other side from a shorter distance. My other 2 are 24", and I like them much better... a much easier height to step over, and Kodi, even though he's an agility dog and COULD easily jump out, has never challenged them.

My favorite is the 24" with the door, because I don't have to LIFT him over it all the time. That may not seem like much of an issue with a 4 lb. puppy, but when they get bigger...

I have that one and i hate it. I'm waiting for FedEx to deliver my Midwest 30" expen (with door) sometime today. I'm 5'2" and have fallen INTO the pen twice while leaning in to get Maccabee. Both times the sides folded in. I had a tough time getting up, and I was terrified Maccabee was injured.

Thankfully, Maccabee was fine. I'm still nursing a sore knee.

Other than that, it is a great expen!

This is the one I use for every day. I work at home, so Isabella is only in it when I'm out or at night, but I love the door as well as its size . . .but my favorite feature is the plastic it's made of. I can easily move it out doors without worrying about rust.


But additionally, I had this one sent to my daughter's home as we're there about one week out of every eight. Super easy to set up (popup) in about one step . . .and has a floor.

We have the gold Midwest 24 inch in the house. Even my Finn, who usually can find his way out of an area, does not attempt to jump over. There is no way I could step over a taller one. At times, I think this one grows in height at night! DH is always catching his toe on the top so 24 is plenty tall for us. I have black 24 inch ones out surrounding their play area, stabilized every so often with black metal poles from Home Depot. So far, they have been working great. We do zig-zag the one in the house across doorways. I do have a few scratches on woodwork and my refrigerator from this!
