Indoor and Outdoor Soft Sided Dog Pens
We all know how wire dog pens tend to scratch wood and other non-carpeted floors. And that they can snag your carpet and they usually don’t have any flooring for the occasional accident included. Wire play and exercise enclosures are primarily made for out door use and serve that purpose very well. There is, however, an alternative to the wire pen that is practical for indoor use and can be used outdoors as well.
This alternative is the octagon shaped soft-sided dog exercise or play pen. These pens come in four main sizes and different brands of pens will fall to within a few inches of the standard small, medium, large and extra large sizes. They also come in a variety of attractive colors and some have added features. The pens are constructed using aluminum or plastic tubing as a frame for six to eight panels made from nylon or heavy duty Oxford cloth and mesh material. Typically in the larger sizes two panels will be used for the pens zippered doors.
Remember the four general sizes are approximant and may vary by two or three inches and are as follows: small 27”W x 17”H, medium 36”W x 24”H, large 48”W x 36”H and extra large 57”W x 36”H. Washable soft flooring makes for easy clean up. The soft-sided pens conveniently fold to the panel size for easy handling and storage. Some of the pen manufactures sell their product as a kit complete with a zip in top and metal pins for anchoring the pen if used outdoors and include a handy soft carrying case.
The soft dog pens are a favorite with people who let their pets compete in dog shows and agility competition because of the pens portability. Professional dog handlers love them too because they can be set up and taken down in a couple of minutes or less. They have pouches for food or toys and even places to secure food and water containers. And the dogs feel secure and comfortable in their airy and familiar enclosure and are not as prone to anxiety or nervousness before being shown or competing.
