Puppy Pens?

Im getting my GSD puppy soon and am getting everything ready. Puppy pens seem like a good idea for the house if you can't watch them 100% of the time? Any recommendations on them or other thoughts. She will be crate trained so she will have a crate anyway, was looking at more of a pen with more room. Or is this a bad idea with potty training?? I can't remember the last time I had a puppy in the house!!!!!

I do use a playpen, it is versatile to move around and I can set it up in the yard or take it with us to other places .The one I use isnt sturdy, he can move it aside easily especially if I just set it up to block off a corner of the room. But they understand to stay inside.

Also, this is good to confine him for timeouts instead of using the crate.

I tried using the pen... Didn't work for me at all! It's now blocking off a gap in the fence in the garden! I stick to a crate for my 14 week old pup. Even in there he manages to create havoc!
