    Here's the one we used for Gus. We're not using it anymore, but it's nice to have just in case...or if we get another pup at some point.
    This one can also form an octagon, and you can also buy extra panels for it to make it bigger.

    Jen - I've been looking at the plastic ones. How long did you use it for Gus? He didn't learn how to climb out of it?

    What age was he able to jump out? I gsity daughter could use it for her rabbit when I'm done). What age approx can I expect her to be able to climb/jump out - hopefully it will last till 4mths?

    I wish i could remember what age that was. I think about 6 months, and probably had more to do with hormones than anything, he was getting into a more adventurous mentality at that age. It migt have been 24" high. but the pen was by the kitchen table which was 30" high on the bottom, and i watched him spring straight up in the air and land on that table, and freedom, I had to get 48" high gates for the kitchen so that even if he jumped on the table, he still wouldn't be able to jump over.

    It isn't an easy X-pen to climb. Ours started to be able to jump over it at 7 months. Some cavaliers are natural born monkeys-- some will not jump over anything higher than a step.

    He was 8 months old when we stopped using it and moved onto baby gates instead....still using 2 of them at 10 months old now.
    He didn't try climbing out of it, but he'd try to push/slide it around. He's a Schnauzer---he's faster than Abbey our Cav, but he doesn't like to jump like she does--she jumps over anything and everything!

    No one tell my girls they can get out of their xpen. Both are over a year old and they stay inside their pens without so much as a bother!

    Yes, but the farm supply places sell them for less- I paid 48 USD for the last one I purchased. Sandy
