xpen for pets

An X-pen is the puppy equivalent of a child’s playpen and ideal for giving a pup playtime with some toys and controlling their whereabouts. Make sure its in the shade and not positioned in the hot sun. They can be used indoors too. Some come with shaded roof areas too. Courtesy Midwest Pet Products

Distraction toys such as a Kong can provide additional hours of fun if you stuff it with Ultramix sweet potato or pumpkin puree and freeze the toy until the puree is solid. Be sure to give the stuffed Kong to your dog outside or somewhere where you won’t mind cleaning up the mess – if he doesn’t lick up everything for you! Peanut butter is another great option.
