What is a pet playpen
A pet playpen is a pet accessory in which baby animals such as puppies or kittens or small pets can be placed to keep them out of trouble and harm’s way.
Playpens come in a variety of styles, colours, and sizes. The popularity of ultra-portable pet playpens has increased as owners travel more with their pets. The best playpens are from durable canvas with additional functionality to remove the base or top cover, as needed. Two side zippered doors improve accessibility and when used outdoors, metal stakes should be included to secure the unit to the ground. That way your pet is able to enjoy the lovely sunny weather, while the playpen stays securely in one place.
Pet Playpens for Travel
It has never been easier to travel with your pet – the playpen is ideal to keep small and young pets safe and contained, but still having fun with the family. The playpen is a must-have accessory when visiting family or taking your pet on holiday.
Keep your pet safe and secure using the portable pet playpen. When using it outdoors your beloved pet can enjoy the beautiful sunny weather, sitting comfortably in one place.
Pet Playpens for Healing and Confinement
If your pet has injured themselves or after a surgery, the vet might prescribe confinement. This means that the movement your pet would need to be restricted to accelerate healing.
It can be difficult to limit your pet’s movement, but it is of the utmost importance to ensure healing takes place. Confinement is a restriction to a limited area in an effort to prevent prolonged physical exertion.
The smaller the pet, the smaller the confinement space. For a large dog, a very small bedroom might be a good choice, but furniture that could encourage jumping should be removed. A medium sized dog could be kept in a large crate or bathroom and with small or toy breed dogs or with cats confinement to pet playpen is recommended.
A Puppy Playpen helps with House Training
Potty Training has become much easier with a pet playpen. Even the not so bright breeds can now be potty trained quickly, and even the laziest pet owners will have great success when using a puppy playpen.
The idea is to use the puppy playpen to confine the puppy when sleeping or unattended. It is a where your dog can be when not supervised, or when you want to give more space than a crate can offer. So, when you need to pop to the shops quickly or busy around the house and are unable to keep an eye on a busy pup, place him/her in a puppy playpen.
The best possible introduction for a puppy in a new home is by using a playpen. Many new owners let the new puppy roam free and then when accidents happen, from peeing on the carpet to chewing your new shoes, confinement becomes a punishment.
Add a comfortable pet crate or bed on the one side of the playpen and a pee-pad on the other. Dogs will not soil where they sleep. So, when the little munchkin needs to potty will walk over to the pee pad or paper to empty their bladder.
Your new doggy should be given a safe, secure area from the start, and then slowly integrated into the home. A puppy playpen is the ideal pet accessory to avoid chewing accidents, potty accidents, and teaches your pup to be alone.
