Each ExPen has 8-24" wide panels.
Ed and Cindy have two ExPens in their home. Ed is currently raising a Mal puppy in these ExPens. One of the ExPens is right next to his desk in his editing studio. The ExPen functions as a dog crate.
The photos you see above with the Malinois puppy are photos in Ed's office with the 42" tall ExPen.
Their second ExPen is located in the family room, where they watch TV. Having an ExPen in the family room allows the puppy to be with them when they watch TV and when their other house dogs are loose in the room. The ExPen gives the puppy the feeling of being part of the family pack with minimal interaction with the other dogs. When puppies are raised this way they learn to relax and be around family members without getting into trouble. This is an excellent way for the pup to learn to be calm and quiet in the house. It's also a great way to show other dogs in the house that the new puppy is now part of the family pack.
When puppies are raised like this, they will stay in an ExPen as an adult dog.

Hi, Cindy -
I came to your website from "The Elka Almanac" blog which featured a link to one of your expen puppy training videos "So you think you want a High Drive Puppy?" I don't :) However, I have a dog sanctuary in my home. I'm coming onto the most dogs I have ever had and have been searching for more comfortable and financially manageable means to contain them.
I have a front room (computer, chair, dog stuff and my office/living space) and a "back" room (kitchen, DR, open area); an outside pen (1 10x10x6), a back yard which I can gate off from the front; a side field and the front yard (about an acre total fenced in). I have mostly adult Beagles, a couple senior Coonhounds, a Dobie/hound mix and some smaller dogs. One of my dogs is legally blind (and I think he is getting worse); another may be sight impaired, pretty sure but not diagnosed; a couple are hard of hearing. Most are adult to senior but am bringing in a 5 mon old Plott hound puppy with a 6 y/o AKC Beagle (papers lost). Currently I am hosting a found maybe a year old Great Pyrenees male, intact (everyone else but a very aged Lab/Weim mix are altered). He is on stray hold till 2/25; I have one party already interested in him - he is pretty darn awesome.
Can the expens be connected to make a small run or round run outdoors for a small group of these dogs? I now try to split the pack front, back and in the house but am looking for something more substantial yet flexible as the pack number declines over the next year or so (so help me God). I love them all but there's just so much :).
Thank you for your time. I will cont. to peruse your website.
You can configure two or more expens to make a larger area if needed. They come with snaps that secure the sides very easily.
I have a small 14 lb dog that I want to keep in the kitchen during the day while at work. I want to give her some area to exercise while I’m gone. I was wondering how well this pen would work. Does it have stabilizers that would keep the dog from knocking over the pen? I’m sure she would be jumping up on the sides while I’m gone. Do you have any other recommendations short of using a crate? I do live in a small apartment.
The only way to know is to train the dog to accept the ex pen while you are home. I don’t leave any dog I have doubts about in an expen unattended.
I’m not sure what you mean by stabilizers, but the taller ex pen is fairly sturdy. My 15 pound dog can scoot it around a little but she doesn’t knock it over. She has also been trained to an expen since 8 weeks so she isn’t looking to get out. Some dogs simply don’t like being in the expen especially when they are left alone.
Those dogs are best left in a crate so they don’t get into trouble.
