Once our puppies start to walk and get around well, we let them in this pen to play for up to 6 hrs a day. Puppies don't usually start to get really mobile until 6 weeks of age. All of our puppies are raised indoors not outside, and they are only caged at night for there safety. I used to let all my puppies outside with all my other dogs starting at 6 weeks, but my vet recommended that I keep my puppies indoors. So this is what we use. And of course, all of our puppies are well socialized and played with by our 5 children on a daily basis.

We just recently moved, my backyard does not look like this anymore but, the dogs have full run of the yard and come in and out of the house through a doggy door as they please still. The males are separated from the females. The males get let out from 7:30 am - 12 pm then again from 5pm-8pm. My dogs are mostly indoors but do go outside to use the potty and play. They always sleep indoors at night and during the hot or cold part of the day.

This is where mama and babies stay at until puppies start walking at 6 weeks of age. Moms get let out to use the bathroom 4-6 times a day and are able to get out and run around for a total of 6 hrs a day. Once puppies are mobile they get put in a playpen for the majority of the day and placed back in there cage to sleep at night. My vet absolutely loved these cages as long as the puppies get let out, which they do. He also said these are the most hygienic and easy to keep clean for puppies as well as the safest. It is similar to what vets use in animal hospitals.
