Best dog pens

Dog pens can be invaluable for keeping your dog safe in the home or outdoors. By putting them in an enclosure you can stop them from accessing parts of your house or garden that aren’t safe for them or that they could wreck with inappropriate chewing or toileting accidents. If you need to leave your dog for more than a few hours, a pen rather than a smaller dog crate is essential so they have more room to get up and move around. They are also useful for restricting their access outside in your garden or when visiting friends. Look for a pen that is high enough for your breed and age of dog not to jump over. You will also need to consider how robust it is if you plan on using it for an adult dog who might push on the sides. Stakes to anchor it outside are useful as is an easy to open and close door so you can get in there to play with your puppy.
