Heart pack n play, playpen??

Does anyone use these when visiting people?? A pack n play would be easy to transport...more so than the crate. More room and more comfortable and keep her safe from other dogs and kids...

I used to use one when Ava was younger. It's good when traveling and they are up off the floor. Since then the netting got a hole in it and I'm back to using xpens - they have more room - but no flooring...

I had a fluff get a nail caught in one. I'm afraid to use them. I had to cut the netting away to get him free.

I would just use my pop up xpen... It has a floor

You can get them on ebay for really inexpensive, and they fold up almost flat... really really light weight.

Many of them have a mesh top you can zip off

I like the IRIS pens. I got my on Amazon. All you do is slip the pins in or out to connect or disconnect the four panels. It literally takes like 20 seconds. The panels are very lightweight and easy to put in the back or trunk of your car. I recommend the IRIS pen to everyone. It was first recommended to me here on this forum.

No it doesn't but I put a vinyl flannel backed tablecloth for the floor. Pee proof and protects hardwood floors. Mine never escaped from the top. If you're worrying about a cat jumping in, I think there is some type of covering for it., but it might only be for the sun. I don't know how sturdy it would be.

No, yhe Iris doesn't have a floor or a top.
I have the Iris in our family room for when we have company so they wont be underfoot. I put pee pads down if I am worried about an accident.
I also had a fabric one like the one Tori mentioned. I loved it. It had a fabric floor and a zip off top. Really light and easy to move around. It would be great for travel. Max kept chewing holes in the sides, so we stopped using it. It is easier to move around than the Iris, but the Iris is pretty easy too.
