Rated 2 out of 5 by Kerri42 Design Flaw - 9 Week Old Puppy Can Climb Out
We were using this for about two weeks and I thought it was great. The door works well, easy to put together. However. I came downstairs from a shower to see the puppy outside the gate. I assumed she was jumping over and out of it, and thought, "how could a gate made for dogs not be able to contain a 9 week old dachshund mix puppy?!" As it turns out, she got better and better at it over the next few days and we finally saw her do it. Here's what she has learned how to do - on the corners of the panels there is a diagonal pattern in the molded plastic, you can see it in the product photo if you look closely. By putting her top paws on the top of the gate at the corner, she is able to climb both the diagonals like a tiny ladder until she is poised at the top where she can leap out. She can now escape the instant we turn our backs, and she can even get back into it from the outside when she wants. Sadly it is useless to us after 3 weeks of use, although I'm happy it is still within the return window because it has to go back. Thankfully we never tried to use it outdoors!

Rated 4 out of 5 by ZeldasMommy Gets the job done. I use this to keep my dogs in and out of certain areas of the house. It works well and stands the harshness of the outside winds and heat of the desert (when I use it for a playpen outdoors).
Two cons to this product-
I have a chihuahua, I used to use this as a playpen when she was a puppy and she actually figured out how to jump over the fence. If you have a dog that can jump high, I'm sure they'll figure out how to get over this.
Also, I've dropped the fencing a couple times and it broke it at the joints. Overall sturdy but if you're clumsy or home with children, take this into consideration.

Rated 4 out of 5 by FurryFosterParent Good!
As a Foster mom I may get smaller dogs who need introduced to my other dogs. This works great for them because they can exit and enter so easily! I kinda updated it by zip tying a blanket on top but it works for them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by BlueTheGuardian Good but not for bigger dogs
This was great for my lab puppy when he was younger it kept him in and he has plenty of room for food water and to run around... but he grew and learned how to escape. Not so good for escapers but I'd say for a poodle or small pupper really good :)
