We bought this for a puppy to assist us in training and giving puppy a rest area. Full disclosure, I knew going into this that using it indoors on laminate flooring was not going to work without reinforcement. The product arrived ahead of schedule. Set up was rather simple and it folds very easily. The bottom latch was defective and will not stay without use of a zip tie. Our puppy could easily jump on the upper part causing such distortion that the upper door latch would come out, or the door would bow and separate from the panel creating an area where she could (and did) get pinched. She also got her snout stuck trying to bite her way out between the door and the panel it is latched to. This was a 10lb puppy. The gate easily loses its shape and slid all over the floor. A silicone mat/rubber backed rug reduced the movement slightly but not enough to be a viable solution for us. Without a lot of extra work on my part this is not an indoor solution. Also I really appreciate those folks that have a puppy and can put a puppy pad in the pen without the dog demolishing it. We are not one of those fortunate pet parents.
We DID move it to our back yard with a small igloo dog house to give her a free area to roam. It is roomy. The stakes keep it in place and wire ties (not provided) give extra reinforcement in those areas prone to bowing under the weight. This is most likely an excellent play area for a rabbit or a 3-8lb small dog that isn’t a jumper. We may consider using it indoors to protect our Christmas tree, but again for it to do any good indoors it needs secured to a base of support. Quality was …..questionable. The fact that it had a defective bottom latch and could easily bend or bow creating gaps that could pinch didn’t give us a lot of confidence. Bottom line is if you want to use it indoors, be prepared to reinforce it.
