A lot of new puppy owners wonder if it's OK to use a pen in addition to (or instead of) a crate.

The idea of giving your puppy or young dog room to move around and play is a very appealing one. BUT there are some drawbacks to giving them this extra space.

A emphasize using the crate because I believe it is an essential tool to have throughout your dog's life. I see a pen as more of an optional accessory that has it's uses...as long as we use it correctly.

In this episode I talk about:

  • The biggest difference between using a crate vs using a pen.
  • The drawbacks during potty training.
  • How to use a pen after potty training.
  • Three common follow up questions I receive when talking about using a pen.

Press play and enjoy!
