Pictures of expen setups

Hi everyone,
A friend of mine has a 4 month old bichon puppy. She is struggling with house training and called me for advice. I gave her some suggestions. She has not been using pads at all. He struggles to hold it if she leaves for longer than 2 hours. I suggested setting up an expen with a pad for when she is out longer periods of time. Do any of you have pictures of your expen setups?

Thanks!

I posted this on another thread....This is Odeo's pen...he loves it and so do we!! big enough to have a crate and pee pad food and toys in it. I covered the floor with big piece of Linoleum so that my floor won't be ruined in the long run.

Depending on the kitchen size/setup/flooring, that may work as well. I leave my boys in the kitchen (big, but not huge, and linoleum floors = easy cleanup) locked in with baby gates during the day. Toys, pee pads, food and water, crates, blankets, and each other .

If it's a pup that is not already trained to potty on some particular surface, you need to start with the setup small, like 2x4, until you have 100% success with going in the right spot. Leave it like it works for at least 3 days before going up in size of pen. You are developing new habits.

This is the set up in my new place. We both downsized, but she seems to be okay with the smaller setup.

Not sure why I can't turn the picture...sorry

You got a good deal because it has more panels mine has 6 and it looks like you have 8 . What I like about it is now I use it for door gates. And when I lived at my sisters we used it for her large opening to her living room.

Can you break it apart to use for gates to doors? I haven't tried that yet. I expand it and use it to block off living room sometimes.
