Adding a new puppy to your family can be a fun and exciting time — but, it can also get pretty hectic. There are so many things to remember and do when you get a brand new puppy. One of those things is deciding whether to put your puppy in a pen or not. There are a great deal of benefits that come with penning your pup. Here are a few of them.
They Come In A Number Of Varieties
Dog kennels and pens come in a ton of shapes, sizes, and materials. They can be inside your home or outside in your yard. Dog pens come in steel wire, waterproof nylon, or a wood/wire combo. Because of the several options you have you are bound to find the perfect fit for your puppy.
They Are Safe
Dog pens give your dog the opportunity to run around in a spacious but confined area. This will protect them from running out into the road or getting into anything that could cause them any harm. With a dog pen, owners can put their minds at ease because they always know exactly where their pup is.
They Are Spacious
Not only are dog pens made from different types of material, they come in different sizes too! We know that not all dogs are the same size and can customize a pen for the individual dog (down to the addition of pet feeding dishes and flooring). For this reason, you need a place that is large enough for your puppy to play in, eat in, sleep in, and grow. A dog pen is the perfect candidate for this.
They Are Affordable
The price of a dog pen varies by size and material but they are overall pretty affordable. Prices range from super low to luxurious. You can fit them to your puppy and your budget.
They Are Easy To Maintain
Due to the size of a dog pen, it’s large enough to easily get in far enough to clean up any messes that might occur while your puppy is inside–and puppies are so messy! Some pet owners choose a crate, and crates are much smaller and restrictive than a dog pen. It’s also tough to get inside and clean most crates due to the small size.
