It's sturdy, compact when folded and can contain medium sized dogs (not for big breeds). It can also be used as a partition if not play area or as a protector in the balcony. At this price point, it's a perfect buy and the best part it came within a day. My pup is perfectly contained when I am in the other room or going out for quick grocery shopping. Yet to try it for night time crating but I am sure it'll do just perfect.
This doorless 'Amazonbasics foldable metal playpen' fulfilled my expectations and requirement to a great extent.
I purchased this playpen for my pooches for Rs.3999, and it got delivered to my home just after two days of placing an order. The packaging was not satisfactory, but fortunately, I got the product inside unharmed.
• BOX CONTENTS: 1. Eight connected iron panels. 2. Eight metal stakes to fix the playpen to the ground (outdoor). 3. Sixteen plastic sleeves to secure the panels to the floor (indoor). 4. One user manual.
I have summarized my review under the following points:
• POSITIVES: 1. The overall build quality of all the eight connected iron panels is decent. 2. Large play area (16 Square Feet). 3. Rust-proof black finish. 4. Very easy to assemble. Just unfold the panels, keep it in any shape, and then lock the latches. That's it! 5. 1-year manufacturer warranty.
• NEGATIVES: 1. The outer rust-proof paint layer was scratched, at several places. 2. Small plastic sleeves were useless on my marble floor. 3. Slightly overpriced.
• PRECAUTION: This playpen must not be used to house tiny puppies or other small breeds of dogs/pets. They might get trapped inside the gaps (5.5 Inch x 1.6 Inch) of the metal panels and succumbed to lethal injuries.
• DIMENSIONS (Single panel): 36 Inch (Height) x 24 Inch (Width) • WEIGHT (8 Panels): 10.36 Kg
Despite some minor issues, I would still recommend this playpen to other shoppers. It can house multiple semi-adult puppies and medium to large size dogs/pets without any problems. If your adult dog is not trained to stay calm inside a crate/playpen, he/she can easily drag this thing from one place to another inside the house.

Its really a good product. We can use it as a partition in home, attach it to the cage if ur dog is outside I.e parking or garden so that it will provide a free area to roam if he gets bored in the cage. U can even attach it to a one side compound wall as shown in video hence area can be increased. I have bought 36 inch height x 24 inch width (8nos.) I.e 36 inch x 16 ft. And which is really a big partition in less cost. I bought it on amazon sale at Rs. 2700
Perfect if you're getting a new puppy and want to potty train him/her straight away. The size is good, it has a huge space area for the puppy to freely roam and play away. The metal is strong enough, so don't worry about your puppy biting it off, it won't happen. Go for it. It's perfect.
This is a very good product. This can hold easily a big dog. If you have small dogs, this can easily hold two, with some space for them. Assembling is easy. Quality of the product is also good. It don't have tray at the bottom, so if you are using indoor, better use som cloth at the bottom.
I completely LOVE this pen. Thank you for the quality and value for money Amazon. (Detailed review below for the ones that have the time :))
I don’t know what life would have been without a playing pen. I encourage all puppy parents to get one. I have been able to train & contain my puppy so quickly thanks to this playing pen. Its much easier to step out or maybe just be to the kitchen without having to worry what part of the room the puppy must be destroying or getting destroyed by. To be honest my puppy hasn’t bitten one shoe, furniture piece or even a pair or sock. All thanks to him loving his pen and obviously his well stocked toys in his pen. He loves his area so much now that even when the door of the pen is open he goes and chills in his place. Also, since the pen is movable, you can make it smaller or larger. I have personally made a rectangular area with a crate area, a food area and a pee pad area as designated understanding for my puppy.
Hope this review helps. Would love to help a contemplating parent to put aside the doubts and go for it hands down!
The metal is strong and it doesn't fall down even if dog jumps over it. I'm using it to keep my 4 month old lab. It gives him sufficient space to play by himself and sleep. I keep his bed and water inside it. Sometimes I even open it up and use like a gate to kitchen and let my pup run everywhere else in house. It's tall, comes up to my waist. Latches are not so strong but so far only once my pup was able to remove it.
Thanks to the positive reviews and pictures posted by Amazon India customers, I purchased this foldable and flexible metal cage and have been delighted with the peace of mind it has given me since I started using it for my dog. Being black in colour, it blends into the background and is barely noticeable. I give my five month old dachshund full freedom to roam around our house, our balconies and garden, and needed a discreet, flexible barrier to keep him from eating my plants or jumping over our verandah's short ledge. And this is just perfect, as I open it to run along the edge of the verandah and it neatly fits into the niches. Got it on a flash sale which sweetened the deal. It's a bit heavy for me to move when folded, but that's a minor inconvenience. Great product. Great value. Great peace of mind.
I bought this fro my pet Shih Tzu. Instead of tying him up, I set this like a play pen in a corner of the living room. I arranged his bed in one end and his food in the other end. he like it, as he can see us. he plays with his toys in there and sleeps when ever he is tired of playing.
Pros: By far the best buy amongst my other purchases for my puppy. Makes my life easy in so many ways. Used it to potty train my puppy. It's big in size and my puppy has enough space to walk/play inside while it is also foldable and can be reshaped into any shape, big or small depending on the need of the hour.
Cons: It is light. As my puppy is growing up he can easily move it around. He cant get out but he moves it around easily while still inside. A mini door to get the puppy in or out of the pen would have been a great addition.
