Puppy Pens and Kennels

This first picture is the whelping pen we built for Daisy's puppies. The guard rail, made from pvc pipe, was to keep the puppies from getting squashed against the wall by Daisy.

At about four weeks, we expanded the pen to give the puppies more room to play and to start on solid food.

When Daisy's eleven puppies started to outgrow their pen in the house, we built a bigger one in the room at the back of our garage. The outdoor kennel was right out the back door.

This pen was built for potty training Avalie, Harley, and Bitsy. We had easy access out the garden door for outdoor training....we just had to step over the short wall of the pen!

This portable fence has been great for closing off an area for the puppies to play. We've used it in both our front and back entrances.
