Dog Playpens: Why Should You Use Them?

Wednesday, August 18, 2010

Your dog or puppy needs a safe space where he can play, exercise and roam around. One way of ensuring the safety of your pooch while he's outside your home is by using a dog playpen.

Most playpens for pets are easy to mount and assemble. Some are made of light materials, which allow you to move it from one place to another whenever necessary.

Dog playpens come in a wide array of sizes, designs and models. The type of playpen you choose should match the size of your dog. Ideally, the height of the structure must be about 2 meters higher than the height of your dog or puppy. This will prevent your dog from jumping over the playpen and escape.

Various benefits can be acquired from using dog playpens. One primary benefit is that it provides your canine a spacious area for exercise. It can serve both as a safe shelter or a spacious play area for your dog. Your dog will get all the necessary physical activity and exercise while he's staying inside the pen. Dogs, like any animals, need to move and run around. Playpens can provide a comfortable and airy space for your doggy to roam when you don't have time to take him for a walk.

A playpen can act as a protected zone of containment. So even if you leave your dog in the yard alone, you don't have to worry about his safety and the possible dangers in the surroundings. It'll prevent your doggy from crashing through your neighbor's lawn or getting attacked by wild animals.

Another benefit of using dog exercise pens is that it can be an effective tool when teaching your dog the proper way of urinating or pooping. With the use of a playpen, you can train your puppy to hold his urge to defecate until he is outside of the enclosed area.

Moreover, a dog that is kept in an enclosure usually has a well-mannered behavior. Boredom and the inability to get out and follow natural instincts are the usual causes of dog behavioral problems. Since you can carry the playpen anywhere you go, your dog will be able to run and run around and feel that he's part of the family. Most dogs who enjoy spending time in these dog playpens tend to have fewer behavioral problems such as excessive barking or chewing.

So whether you need a safe place for your dog or simply prefer a spacious area in which you'll be able to leave your pooch while finishing off an important task outside, then buying a playpen is the way to go!
