How to choose a puppy pen?
Whether you are looking for a puppy pen or dog pen to keep your pet contained safely in the home or in a safe zone outdoors, choosing a pet pen that is right for you can be a challenge. Puppy pens, dog pens, and pet pens provide an ideal solution that enable your dog to play, sleep, and exercise safely unsupervised.
A pet playpen is ideal for training or for keeping your pet contained in one area of the home. When choosing the best dog playpen for your pet, consider the size, breed and weight of your dog. What is suitable for a small puppy may not be suitable for a large, heavy dog. If your dog is a large breed, be sure your dog cannot jump and escape the pet pen with ease. It’s important with any pet pen that you ensure the gate can withstand the weight and strength of your pet should they lean against it.
If you have a big dog, consider choosing a large or extra-large dog pen with the versatility of being able to add and remove additional panels. A versatile pet pen like this enables you to create a bespoke dog pen suited to the size of your dog.
If your dog or puppy is likely to panic if contained in a smaller space, make sure your dog pen has plenty of room for your dog to roam, play, and exercise comfortably. Safetots pet pens are versatile in that you can add and remove panels to make them the ideal size to suit your pet. We have a wide selection of large and small dog pens so you’re sure to find a playpen to suit your pet. You may also want to choose a safety gate or pet gate instead, to block off certain areas and give your dog more space to play.
Consider cost, durability, and portability when choosing your pet pen too. Safetots pet pens are constructed with individual panels that fold simply and neatly, making them the ideal pet pen for travelling with a puppy or dog.
Look for a puppy pen or pet pen with a door opening, as this enables easy access. A pet pen with an extra wide door section is the ideal solution for larger dogs.
Safetots pet pens are simple and attractive, with contemporary designs available in wooden options, as well as white and black strong heavy-duty steel. This not only makes your metal pet pen strong against your dog, but also makes it suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
Why use a puppy pen?
A puppy pen or dog pen provides a safe and secure area for your puppy or dog to play, exercise, and sleep safely. Puppy pens and dog pens are ideal for young puppies in training. They enable families to contain their puppy in one safe place indoors or outdoors. A dog pen also enables you to separate your dog from young children or keeps them from social situations where you may not wish your dog to be present.
Pet pens provide freedom and security for your animals, similar to a play pen for children, a pet pen provides peace of mind that your pet is safely contained as you go about your chores in the home. It also keeps playful puppies from potentially chewing soft furnishings and furniture and causing damage in the home.
Playpens for dogs are generally large enough for your pet to sleep in. You can make them comfortable by putting their bed, food, and water inside the pen, ensuring there is still plenty of room for them to roam with ease.
While great for indoors, these dog pens are perfect for outdoor use too. A puppy pen is ideal for homeowners who have no secure fence panelling in their back garden. A pet pen will allow a dog or puppy to be in the outdoors without the ability to escape. Unlike a puppy crate, a puppy pen provides a greater area for your pet to play. This makes a puppy pen ideal for dogs and puppies who may be more claustrophobic and scared of the smaller confinement of a crate.
Are puppy pens safe for babies?
Some puppy pens and play pens for babies are ultimately the same design and provide the same safety and security for babies and as they do pets. Most puppy pens are suitable for babies, however it is not recommended, for hygiene and safety reasons, that a puppy pen should be used as both a pet pen and a play pen for children. Dogs may chew and lick the bars of a puppy pen and it therefore would not be deemed suitable for a baby once it has been used for a pet.
Most Safetots pet pens and play pens consist of interconnecting panels that slot together, mostly made of metal and wood, and each provides a suitable, safe zone for a child or pet to exercise and play. It is not advised for pets and babies to share a play pen or a pet pen at any time. Dogs and puppies should always be supervised when babies and young children are in their presence, as they may not always be so tolerant of young children.
It is recommended that if you intend to buy a pet pen or puppy pen for your baby it complies with today's safety standards for children. All Safetots pet pens comply with the relevant safety standards for babies and young children and are suitable for both babies and pets. So, you can be confident that any dog and puppy pen you buy from us will keep your family safe.
