Midwest Exercise Pen with Door
Very nice to have, fold up easily to store away, connects to the kennels well for extending a kennel to have more room for puppies or such, no issues. The plastic connector pieces are the only cheap part that comes with them, they come off here and there and need to be put back in place, zip ties work way better. I'd buy another one if I ever needed it, then come in 3 different sizes, they are all the same quality. The door on them makes it nice for puppies to get in and out of instead of having to lift the dog over the fence like the cheaper model. I recommend this, works great with our english bulldog.

Adjusts to your need
This item seemed a bit expensive for what I got...but it has lasted almost 3 years now - it's very durable, and you can take it apart and make blocking gates with it. I've used it for my Lab when he was a puppy, and still use it for him now at 2 years old. It does slide around on kitchen floors...and if you're dog is eager it'll slide around on carpet too.
It comes with stakes, which is really only good outdoors. But we took the gate apart and fastened one side down to one wall and the other side to another wall with the garage door on one side for him to go in and out, but not all over the garage. It worked great!
He doesn't jump up on it - otherwise it'd probably come down (not that sturdy on it's own). He has jumped out of it once, without realizing what he did (it was next to a bed). So if you have a dog who jumps it's probably not tall enough.
I'm happy with the item because out of the 3 gates/kennels I've bought, this one has lasted me the longest, through traveling, moving, and camping.

The product is only somewhat durable. The joints in between the panels are loose and when the dogs stand up on their hind legs and put their front feet on there the whole things clanks a lot when they are eager to get out. The clasps provides to secure it together are a bit weak and one broke rather quickly even though this product was set up and only disassembled one time. I only used it for my one puppy, a 10 pound pug.

Needs more support
I bought this for my Old English Bulldog puppy that is only 2 months old. He weighs 12lbs and the box said can hold dogs up to 25lbs. He cant knock it over but the supports keep popping off and making the pin so flimsy. I got this so I could put him in it while I was cleaning or getting ready in the morning and not in the kennel all day and I will be returning it soon. He can push it around all over my kitchen which is not a big deal but then the supports pop off. But he cant push it over so its a plus.
