Our 9 week old Nova is doing great, crate training is coming along fantastic and she's only had one accident in the house in the last 4 days.
However our place is pretty open plan and I would like to cordon off a place for her to play and train without too many distractions and also so I can enforce no mouthing/nipping rule by stepping out.
We're starting clicker training with her so I wanted to do it in a penned area since the house has roaming cats and other distractions
Does anyone have any recommendations for puppy gates/pens that are extra wide? I need a straight "fence" of about 100-105" - not easy to find I know. The only one wide enough I found is pretty flimsy for a determined 15lb pup!
TIA for any advice

Sunflowers - thanks for the recommendation, that one actually looks perfect, only problem is shipping takes so long, but we will manage til then!


@doggiedad that will be ideal when we're not renting - since we're buying in the next year I don't want to have something customised to the rental house only to have it be obsolete in 6 months. Thanks though!

I have the same pen as sunflowers and LOVE it, use it all the time. I got it with less than a week shipping, the same pen is also on ebay. Here's a pic of my 6 months old girl taking a nap (i woke her up) in the pen :) still can't escape

I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for, but I was really happy with the North States exercise pen and the gate I got from Amazon. It's really sturdy, easy to set up and add extensions to, and there are no horizontal bars so no climbing out. Amazon ships pretty quickly too if I remember. Good luck!

I use a Midwest X pen. I've used it both as a pen and as a gate. You can get ones ith a door in them. They generally are composed of 8 panels each 24" wide. They come in different heights.
