Reasons To Have a Pet Pen Enclosure For Your Puppy Dog Cat

Posted by Ajay Katragadda on

In Australia, dog enclosure can also be called “dog fence”, “dog pen”, “dog kennel run” or “dog playpen”. Enclosures can be used for wide variety of pets such as Dogs, Cats, Rabbits, Chickens or Guineas.

Reasons to have a pet enclosure for your puppy dog:

If you have a new puppy or have adopted a new dog, the easiest way to train or housebreak him is to keep him in a confined area until it is time to either take him outside.


Enclosures provide a safe and secured play area for your puppies.


When you are away on work, enclosure will keep your puppy safe.


A containment area is necessary to keep your belongings safe from your inquisitive puppy.


Active puppies could injure themselves while jumping on or off furniture. Enclosure can prevent this from happening.


A portable/foldable enclosure is great for camping or while travelling. They can be dismantled flat and transported in the boot of your car.


If your pet is injured or has undergone a surgery, enclosure helps keep them calm for healing. They heal faster when in a small enclosure.


Outdoor enclosures can be used as a fence. They provide fresh air to your pet while preventing them going haywire on your backyard plants.


Enclosures can be used to protect them from household electrical equipment such as water heaters and air-conditioner compressors.


Indoor pet enclosures help contain older dogs that are incontinent.


If you have a litter of puppies, you will need to confine the litter until they are old enough to go to their new home. A good enclosure can be used for the female dog to go in and out of the enclosure without the puppies escaping the enclosure.


Before choosing the right enclosure consider these:

Is the wire strong enough to protect your pets from the predators / wild cats / wild animals?

Is the enclosure big enough to house your pet? Does it have adequate sleeping / playing space for your pet?

Is there an option of placing a waterproof cover over the enclosure to provide sun and rain protection?

Is the enclosure big enough to house your litter, especially when you enclose around 8-12 puppies and a mother?

Can the enclosure be made bigger by adding panels?

Is the enclosure rust resistant when placed outside?

Can the enclosure be made escape-proof?

Is the enclosure portable and can it be dismantled?

Extra large kennel with balcony

I have a 5month staffy X collie that absolutely loves his new out door home. Perfect size for him enough when he grows up. We have had a lot of rain here on the Gold coast and there has be no leaks so he has stayed dry.
Was impressed with the fast delivery and no damage while in transit. Great quality wood, would highly recommend purchasing.
Top job Pet Joint. Thanks

Perfect crate

This is the perfect size for my German shepherd who has plenty of room to stretch out. Great value and a very speedy delivery. Thank you

Thank you for delivering a product that was as described.

Extra large dog kennel

The kennel itself is ok quality. The roof arrived damaged however and has buckled already with the wet weather we have had. Not as strong as I had hoped for to be honest.

A good purchase in overall

The enclosure worth the money, however there are some drawbacks.

It is spacious for one adult cat, not sufficient for two though. The hammock is only big enough for a kitten, so didn't use it. Also didn't use the ladders as the cats seemed to find them uncomfortable.

The clips that secure the metallic cage to the base don't hold, so had to drill some holes and use bolts with nuts for proper stability.

As one of the cheapest options on the market, it is still recommended with the above notes in mind.
