dog-exercise-penA dog exercise pen is not really used for exercise because they are usually not big enough.  It is used more as a containment area that will keep your dog safe and in a protected environment. You should always exercise your dog regularly and use not this pen as a substitute for exercise. The pen links together to form an enclosure where your dog can play and relieve themselves without you having to worry about them escaping or coming to harm.

The main use of a dog exercise pen is for training your puppy and if you can’t be with him outside, it’s a place where he could get fresh air and remain in a contained environment.

Dog exercise pens come in all sizes. Don’t worry if you have a small yard, I’m sure that you will find one that will meet your needs. If you have a large yard, you may want to join two pens together to create a great space for your dog.

When purchasing a dog exercise pen, make sure that they fold away and that they don’t contain any exposed screws to harm your dog.  You should have separate access panel. You want to be able to have easy access to your dog and not have to climb over any panels. The door panel should have a good locking mechanism to prevent your pet from escaping.
