Puppies and Dogs are without a doubt the most loyal, loving and adoring sidekick, you will ever come across. When you accept a dog into your life, you are making a commitment to a living being, one that will rely wholly and solely upon you for its continued existence.

Part of this invisible contract you took on when you adopted your dog, was to keep it safe from harm. But realistically, you can't be with your mate every second of your lives. You need to work and socialize, he needs to sniff bums and dig holes. Both activities able to be completed on their own without the other party chaperoning the other.

Unfortunately, dogs cannot be trusted. They are by nature an active and inquisitive lot. Whereas our brains tell us to stop, slow down, think about things before we act - our pets brains do not. In some instances they can just keep on going on and on and on, until they literally drop to the ground, utterly exhausted.

Some of our other bundles of joy seek freedom in every motion of their day. Leave that gate or door open a centimeter, or take your eye off them for just a second - and Houdini, is gone. Off down the street, dodging cars, getting lost or worse, getting attacked by some less than desirable people or other dogs.

Boredom can also send a dog stir crazy, just like humans, dogs have mental health issues and emotions. Along with this boredom and insanity comes acting out. This is often in the form of chewing, making of territories or scratching at or tearing of valuable and cherished items of most particular, their owners.

Whichever your comrades bad habit is, whatever the danger they potentially could put themselves in, it is up to you, the owner to ensure they are able to be contained in a safe manner, removed from dangerous areas or situations. There is also an obligation to the dog for it to receive exercise, preferably outside in the sun and fresh air for maximum health benefits.

If you find the need to contain your dog, for any of the numerous reasons that can come up, rather than restraining a dog with a rope or chain, rather than locking them inside or outside, a Dog Exercise and containment playpen are a safe, happy option for your puppy dog.

Puppies need to be restrained for their own safety, preferably by a playpen and not his brother sitting on him!
