Dog Exercise Pens
One of the best investments you, as a dog owner, can make is a dog exercise pen. They are a great way to contain your pet while giving them the room they need to play and exercise, both indoors and out. These pens are very versatile and can be set up in a number of configurations. The most common of which is the octagonal shape that comes with eight panels including the door panel. There are a few makes that come with six panels as well. The panels come in 24 to 28 inch widths and range in height from 24 to 48 inches. The majority are folding pens with either a carrying handle and/or a case. Of course the size or breed of your dog will determine the height you’ll need.
Most exercise pens are made of wire in a variety of gauges ranging from 4 to 11 with the smaller numbered gauge being the heaviest. In the better pens the frame is of a heavier gauge than the panel wire itself. There are several types of wire with different coatings available. A few examples of a pen wire coatings are gold electro plated zinc, epoxy coating, and powder coated. We will list several of the top manufactures below.
Many makes or models are built to accommodate a top cover. Pen covers are normally made of a heavy nylon tarp type material, oxford cloth or canvas and can be closed or made of a mesh material. The most popular covers are a 50/50 combination of the two. The mesh allows for a degree of shade while providing ventilation too. Your dog’s exercise and play pen will definitely need a cover if placed in an open outside area with no natural protection from the elements.
A few dog exercise pen manufactures include Champion folding suitcase pens, BestPet with it’s ½ inch tube frame and two latches door and Midwest Metals with two doors, adjustable divider panel and full wire mesh top. Elitefield pens come with both black coated and electro plated zinc panels. All of these high quality pens can be had at very affordable prices and are a great deal for the money.
