x pen

Anyone recommend this x pen? Seems like a good deal, but maybe it's not made well?




Is there another one you'd recommend more? What about the plastic ones, are they just as good?

Thanks for all the input.

Those are the ones we use the most. Check petsupplies.com for the same expen. That price seems a little high.

looks good! I thought that price looked good! If you buy it at Pet Smart it's like $90 or something rediculous like that!!

wasn't for Tillie. LOL she was able to jump over it by the time she was 4 months old!!
I came home one day and there she was, greeting me at the front door! LOL
We ended up buying a full on 'crate' (which my mom callls a cage and I HATE that terminology!!) and she has loved it ever since!! We do still use the x-pen occasionally if we are at a friends house and it isn't safe (because of small children/food/toys) to be free roaming. As long as I stay where she can see me she is fine.
Some havs NEVER jump over the 24" x-pen though... Tillie is super athletic.

I cant keep maddie in a x pin she climbs out. I would get the tallest one they have. I have a wire one and a plastic one. I think the plastic one is stronger and can be taken apart to do more with it. I used mine for a while for three door ways.

We had the Midwest metal xpen which worked fine. Only downsides was it could scratch a wood floor and it does rust if it gets wet. We replaced the metal xpen with this plastic one (link below) and we are extremely happy. It is a bit pricey but worth it. It won't scratch wood floors, won't rust, it's tall enough. It has a door. It is easy to fold, take apart, etc. You can take out panels to make the xpen smaller. Or buy more panels to make it larger. I would recommend it.

The ex-pens we have are the Midwest ones too. Kodi has never challenged them, even though he can easily jump that high. I think if you have a puppy who is a climber, and they want to get out, getting a taller pen isn't likely to keep them in... They will just fall feom higher on the other side. I have one 30" one that I got in the beginning, worrying about the jumping, but it's a pain to step over. My other two are 24". Kodi is big enough that he stands with his paws on the top edge to wait for us, but wouldn't think about leaving until we let him out.

Most peoplewith climbers or jumpers end up having to put them in something that is covered... Either an ex-pen with a cover, or a crate.

You may remember that Tillie and Rango are half cousins or sisters (whatever) anyway I saw this post and had to laugh Rango is a jumper. Straight up it will not be long before he can jump out of his pen. LOL
