Pet pens bring a lot of utility to the home, especially for those specific lifestyles. For individuals living in the urban environment, space can be a major concern and more often than not, their gardens will have little space, if they have one at all. A pet pen allows owners to separate an area off for their dog so they can run around and leave their owners with a little peace of mind knowing they aren’t going to get too excitable and break things. This may also apply if there are children present or if there is an area where you wish you dog to stay away from, such as the upstairs. However, when purchasing, or even making your own, dog play pen there are some things you should consider first.

The key aspect of a pen is that it’s sturdy enough to withstand your dog’s weight. You have a couple of options here. Chain link is a very sturdy material that will last a good long time. While a little heavier than the other material, it’s well worth the expense and weight due to the long-lasting nature of it. It’s suitable for larger dogs and should be at least 4 foot tall to make it very effective.
For smaller dogs, yard and kennel fencing should suffice. It’s lighter, can be purchased at less than half the price and should be purchased at around 2 to 4 foot, depending on dog size. It’s material makes it less sturdy and long-lasting as the chain link, but the price offsets this.
This is essential if you’re going to have your dog outside for a considerable amount of time. While exercise is good, doing so in the rain or a heat wave is not. To keep your pet safe and healthy, you should provide shelter in the form of a roof. However, the quality of the roof will obviously determine the price, so choose carefully; there’s no point in spending too much if you’re not going to let your dog out for extended periods of time
