Accessory 2-pack Snaps
This pen is exactly what I had in mind in prep for getting a new puppy. Pulling the connecting rod and attaching it to a wire crate was a snap. Instant dog enclosure with a steptrough gate in our kitchen, which due to it's flexibility, was easy to configure to the avaible space. Now we've increased her area, (but still in the kitchen), by simply affixing each end to create a large half circle (still with the step through gate) with the crate inside it, under a bay window. Pup loves it and so do we. Once it's safe to take her outside, this unit will really come in handy on visits, vacations, etc.

Not as it appears in photos.
I bought the roof for the Elite Exercise pen and am slightly disappointed that it is not what it appears from the photos. In the photos, esp in the catalog I have, it appears to be a canvas top. It's not. It's just 2 wire panels you clip on.
In some ways that is probably *better* for my purpose (temporary outdoor pen for young chicks) but it leaves me having to get creative with ways to give them shade, and trust me, if I had time to "get creative" I'd have saved the money and built from scratch. I needed something that was going to do everything I needed it to do right out of the box, and this won't.
Still, it WILL be better for keeping predators out, so I guess I'll keep it and hope the chickies have enough shade under a tree.
