Top Paw Exercise Pen
ok for small pets
I just bought this yesterday at Pet Supply. First of all, there were no instructions at all, not even a one page sheet of paper (maybe someone had returned it?) not that you need to know much, but the gate is very confusing to open. It is sturdy enough for my Chihuahuas (one is 5 lbs, the other 7 lbs) but I can't imagine putting a larger dog in it. Mostly they just sleep in it and they seem to like it a lot. I like that there is no bottom bc I might use it outside to put them in it when I am doing yard work or reading. Since they are so small, the space seems huge.

Did not meet expectations
I bought this product for my 9 week old puppy to help crate train her and potty train her. She is too smart for this system as she is able to open up the door whenever I close it. I thought this would be a lot more sturdier also and it was no, my puppy is able to move the gate around very easily even while it's attached to her crate. I had to add an additional clip to the door to keep it closed so that she can't open it. Either she is a very smart puppy to have figured it out or it just was not built as it should have been.

Awesome for a 1/4 flemish giant standard rex mix.
I have a 10 week old 1/4 flemish giant standard rex rabbit mix who was living in the lower level of a critter nation double unit for about 5 weeks. I finally upgraded him to this pen with the 30% off associate day yesterday plus it was in clearance for $66.00; i love it! I do not currently have the space to set it up to the full size, so its about 4'x2' right now. If it was set up to the whole 16 sq ft, he would feel like a king!
It was easy to unfold and shape to how ever you need it, i just put an old polar fleece blanket down under it and i was good to go. My Bunny Barnaby is also super happy with this purchase! I attached 2 photos, one of the current set up and one of him in it full size. He is also about 7 pounds right now at 10 weeks, he is a big boy.

Good for puppy potty training
As a containment unit goes this product would work best for small breed dogs. I use it indoors to give my golden retriever puppy more room than a crate during potty training. Setup is super simple as it is pre-assembled and four clips are provided to attach one end to the other or (as I have done) attach to the crate for a little more space. It is heavy enough that he can't knock it over and only jostles a bit on tile floor (22lbs at the moment, but remember it's attached to a large crate) and as stated above, the corner braces are useless unless it is in the specific design configuration.
