What to use under ex pen?

We have newer hardwood floors. Looking for low cost suggestions on what to put under the ex pen to protect the floor from any accidents? Will be using pee pads.

My breeder has a piece of vinyl flooring under her ex-pen

I got this plastic stuff at home depot. It has little nubs on the underside to help it grip. I believe it was in the flooring department and came on a roll.

You can also go to a fabric store and get plastic or whatever that fabric is called..vinyl.

If the area is small enough, a plastic shower curtain works.

I'd suggest not vinyl, had a friend have her pups eat it

I've been using an x-large wire kennel like this one...



I found it on kijji for only $40, so a huge savings over an x-pen. It has a side door which is the one we use. It fits her pee pad tray, her food dish, her water and her crate. With room left over. It has a removable tray. And because it's totally enclosed the big dog can't hop in and steal her toys.

That's a little small for an expen principle. That's basically a crate. You need something with a small crate and a larger exercise area so he can eliminate away from where he sleeps. http://www.dogstardaily.com/training...-housetraining

It's actually pretty far from the crate. You could fit two more crates in between the crate and the pee pad.

It's still a lot smaller than an ex-pen. I agree with Dave... Consider providing her with a larger space.
