BestPet Heavy Duty Pet Playpen & Dog Exercise Pen


A heavy duty 1/2 inch metal tube dog playpen

Comes with 8 panels that can be set up in an octagon or rectangle configuration

Each panel is 40″ High x 31″ Wide on the 40 inch model

Comes in a black color

Relatively easy and quick to set up and take down

Comes with rods for connecting the panels together

You can order additional panels to expand the playpen area



For dogs that try to jump on the fence, you’ll have to buy extra stakes to reinforce the fence, and possibly reinforce the connector rods

Long term, it can be good to apply some rustoleum paint on the metal

Shipping outside the USA is subject to extra fees

Sometimes the fence might arrive with a few dents in the panels – in this case you’ll have to contact the manufacturer for a replacement



Overall, probably the best heavy duty dog pen on the market along with the Paws & Pals playpen. Strong and easy to set up. If you have a dog that tries to jump on the fence, you’ll need to reinforce the panels and the rods that connect the panels with stakes, and some type of locking washers – but, most people don’t have this issue. It’s good you can expand this system with extra panels.
