Very nice pet pen!
I'm very impressed with this IRIS pet pen. I was very happy that it came out of the box ready to go. So setup was easy. I just simply unfolded it from the box & it was ready to go. This pen is made from epoxy coated wire, so I don't have to worry about it rusting. It also has a latching door, so it makes it easy to let your pet go in and out of it. When I first got it, I used it inside for the first week after a cat I rescued had emergency amputation surgery. He had to be monitored 24/7 for the first week & take medicine every couple of hours, so this pet pen was great so I didnt have to worry about him hiding under furniture. It was big enough to hold a pet bed, litter box and food & water dishes. There was also room for him to walk around in it as well. I now use it outside for my small dog and it comes with six anchors that secure it to the ground. So I dont have to worry about it blowing over with windy weather. He absolutely loves this pen and gets excited when it's time to go outside in it. We will be getting many years of use from it. It's a very sturdy pet pen, that's perfect for smaller sized animals. I wouldn't recommend for larger sized animals or anything that can jump over anything that's 30 inches high. But it's a great pet pen and I'm sure you & your pet will love it.
I received the IRIS 30" Wire Pet Pen in the color Black and I really like it. It's a great pen that I used to help train my puppy. It's sturdy enough to keep the dog inside and you don't have to worry about the dog getting out. I like the fact that the bottom was open so we could take it with us when we go to the beach or park and the dogs have a safe place to relax. This pen also comes with six anchors that you can use when you are outside which is great so the pen doesn't move!
The wire on this pen is heavy-gauged and epoxy coated which makes it sturdy and durable. It comes with some connectors to keep the panels together and they won't fall down. To close the pen, you just insert the metal pin in the loop and done! It's pretty easy to set up and take down too. The makers of this pen say the pen is not supposed to rust and so far, mine hasn't! The dimensions are 60.00"L x 24.00"W x 30.00"H. This pen easily fit my two small 13 pound pugs with plenty of room to play! Get this pet pen! You won't regret it!
So versatile and well made
There are 8 sections of coated wire that each measure 24"W x 30"H. All together it's just over 16' long and can carefully be used as a fence. Or you can make two 2'x2' squares, a 4'x4' square or a 6'x2' rectangle pen. It comes with 4 (wish there were more) heavy duty 9.5" stakes to hold it down.
It comes in a large box, 26" x 32", 22pounds.
I like the good, thick wire that has no sharp edges. The connectors mean good flexibility in both configuration and use on uneven ground. It has a 'no lose it' lock for the gate opening - 21.5"H x 14.5" W.
It has no instructions but I didn't need any.
Best for small, mellow dogs; I can see use for ferrets, guinea pigs, bunnies, etc but you would need to get more stakes to be sure they don't dig out. Would work well for camping, puppies. I took mine with me over to visit a friend and everyone was happy.
I want to get more and use as a fence around my raised flower beds to keep the dog out.
So I love it, just wish it had extra connectors, more stakes.
Sturdy and durable
This review is for the IRIS 30" Wire Pet Pen in Black. I needed a safe place for kittens to play both inside and outside. And this will work great, at least until they start learning to jump out the top. The wire is a heavy gauge, very sturdy. It came folded up and was very easy to just unfold, place it where and how I wanted, and then fold back up for storage. It came with 4 stakes to secure it to the ground and also 3 panel connectors to finish securing it together when you are done setting it up. It's in 8 sections connected together by the twist panel connectors so this makes it possible to set it up in whatever shape you want. So you are not limited to just a square or a circle. The door has 2 chain locks to hold it shut and keep it secure. I was able to get this to stand on it's own in my living room without any problems and it stayed pretty sturdy even when I purposely tried to push it over before it was secured. I haven't been able to put it outside yet because it's winter here but I don't see any problems when I do get the chance. Now for the measurements. Well if you set this up in a straight line it is 16 feet long. (So that means each of those 8 sections are 2 feet wide.) And the height is 30 inches. The door is 15 inches wide and 22 inches high. The description says that the wire is epoxy-coated and the panel connectors are rust resistant. So far I am very pleased with this. I think it will hold up for a long time.
Sturdy, Well Made Pet Gate
I needed a way to close off part of my backyard and the IRIS 30" Wire Pet Pen was the answer! I have been using it for a few months now and it's exactly what I needed. When it arrived I had a hard time getting it out of the box. It's packed tight and all 8 sections are connected together so instead of lifting out 1 section at a time you need to lift out the entire gate. I leaned the box on it's side and it slipped out easily. It weighs 20 lb. The metal is coated and has a nice, soft feel to it. It was coated well with no parts left open to rust. I stood it up leaning against the posts in my patio and it closed off the entire length so my dog couldn't get out into the rest of the yard unless I opened the door on the gate. It's 30" high and 16' long. I have been hosing it down and the sprinklers wet it nearly every day and it still looks like brand new. I did run bungee cords around the sections leaning on the posts because we were having bad winds but they are easy to undo. I fold it up when the gardeners come every week and then put it back and it takes less then a minute. I can also put it into a pen on the lawn when I have workmen come and my dog is in the way. The sections are attached by connectors that can be removed if less sections are needed or you can purchase more and add them on. The box contained 8 stakes to fasten the sections to the lawn and 3 extra connectors. I highly recommend this pet gate for anyone with a small or medium sized pet. I'm not sure it could contain a large dog since it's 30" high. It would also be a great way of closing off an area in your yard or home if you have a toddler. This is a well made product and an inexpensive way to close off an area you want restricted.
Awesome pet pen!
Ok, so I am writing a review on the IRIS 30" wire pet pen in black color. So I really like this pet pen. it's perfect for our small dog. We can use this in our outside our house. It is really easy to assemble and can be shaped many ways. It is plenty tall enough that our dog can't jump out. And she can't squeeze out anywhere. Another cool feature of this is the built in dog door. This is something I would recommend to anyone with a dog they want in a pen. Now we can let our dog outside in the pen without being on a leash. She loves it. I would recommend this for a gift idea too. Anyone would love to receive this pen. This is a great product!
The Iris 30 “ wire pet pen came in almost fully assembled. Two edges were not attached, but came with the three latches to do so. It didn't come with any instructions, so I had to look on the internet to find out how to open the latches. Just twist the front of the latch in a clockwise direction and it comes apart. Line up edges of panels within the back of the latch, replace front of latch in reverse motion and it locks in place. The pen is well made and lightweight. Easy to move around. It comes with anchors for outside use. I would only use for small breed dogs or maybe bunnies. Any dog larger than a yorkie would be able to jump over.
IRIS 30" Wire Pet Pen has heavy-gauge powder coated rust-resistant wire and stands up to the elements while four anchors secure the pen safely in the ground. The pen was easy to assemble, I installed three twist lock wire locks and the pen was ready to use. This versatile playpen gives you comfort in knowing your pet is contained, while providing him freedom to move about with ease. The pen comes with 8 panels which are 24 inches wide and 30 inches tall and can be arranged to best suit your space and simple assembly folds flat for easy storage and transportation. I found that the octagon shape is the strongest way to set up the pen. I plan to use this Iris pet pen for camping and since it folds up small enough to fit in its original box it will fit in my camper. I recommend this pen for anyone who has small dogs which need to be safely contained while giving them freedom to exercise. Extra panels and wire locks are available from Iris to make pen larger if needed or you can purchase two pens and attach them together to double the play area for your pet.
This pen is perfect for a small dog to keep safe while in the yard or keep them from getting into things in the house. Has room for them to play and not be crated where they can hardly move around. I even use this for my guinea pigs to give them some grazing time in the yard (under supervision of course). Well made and easy to put together.
This pen isn't what I expected. I thought that I would be getting a pen for my small dog to stay in when we have company or when he needs a time out. What I received was a pen that is great for outdoors but pretty useless as a dog pen indoors. If you need an open topped pen so you can have your small pet safely outside, then this is for you. But, your dog can't be a jumper. My dog jumped to try and get over this and caught his leg in the bars because the width and length of the bars are ridiculously large. I decided it was not worth the pain and money if a broken leg and stopped using it. After that incident I just used it to try and keep the cats from the Christmas tree.
This Iris thirty inch pet pen is the best, most superior pet pen I have ever used. It is great on so many levels. First, let me state that it is for smaller pets because it is only thirty inches high. With that being said, you can use it for training purposes or you can use it for restraining your pet while you are distracted. You can use it indoors or you can use it outdoors and secure it to the ground with the anchors that come with it. It comes almost fully assembled. The only assembling part is attaching the door section. It had to be folded to fit into the box it shipped in and that is the only part that is not already assembled. I use it inside and the very best part of this is that you can use the entire assembled pen and adjust it to be round, oval or oblong, it's that adjustable. You can also remove a section or a few sections and make it smaller. As it comes, the dimensions are: 60.00"L x 24.00"W x 30.00"H. However, like I stated, you can remove some of the sections and make the length shorter and connect them in about any shape that fits your needs. If you use it outside and want to use it up against a wall, you can do that as well. The anchors will come in handy for doing that. I absolutely love the versatility of this pet pen and would highly recommend it.
I cannot wait to be able to garden this season with my dogs outside with me! This pen is very cool. Before, the dogs REALLY wanted to be outside with me but our HOA prohibits fences, so they had to be tied out. Which means they tripped me up on leashes and leads! This is the PERFECT solution and is portable (the “panels” fold up) so I can also let them be in the front yard with me when I mulch or maintain our flower beds! I can think of lots of other uses for this pen (like babies and for nursing mommas) but these are just mine. The hinges holding the panels seem durable and the door is easy to operate. One complaint is that no instructions came with this; but it wasn't overly difficult to figure out. I would not suggest this for cats; both of mine (who are older) easily jumped in to investigate (I set it up in my living room) and jumped right back out when they were done. This was a very good price listed and I think it will last and will definitely fit my needs (as soon as this Ohio weather cooperates so I can garden!)
Yorkie Approves Lol
IRIS 30" Wire Pet Pen, Black was selected from the Wal Mart Spark Reviewer Program for my honest opinion of the product. For starters, I purchased a pet pen from amazon that was a lot smaller but my 1 year old yorkie jumped over it so I had to continue to use my kennel. My main goal was to find a pet pen until we got him completely house trained to where he could roam freely. Well this pet pen came with no instructions what so ever. Con number of this product. It came with some stakes and I am guessing this is to hold it in place outside? I really don't know because again, it didn't come with any instructions. The door on this thing, I hate it. We don't even use the door because for some reason it falls off when you open the door. I am not sure why because no instructions came with this stupid thing. I have hardwood floors and my yorkie is about 5/6 lbs. and he is unable to jump over this pen. We no longer use the kennel since we got this item. I like it but I need to know how or what to do so we can use the door on it. O and the door is high up so my dog has to jump to get out, he hasn't really got that down yet.
Easy setup and sturdy
Box arrived in perfect condition without any tears or being beaten up. Instructions were easy to follow to assemble the pen. Also, the pen is compact and relatively quick and easy to assemble. We only used the pen as a square shape, but it appears that the pen assembly can also be changed as well from square to octagon. Great pen to have for a pet that needs a time out or to lend to a friend or relative while they pet-sit. Works great to separate the pet from other pets or children. I believe additional panels can be purchased and added to the pen. This would make a great addition to any pet owner's home.
Great Little Dog Pen, Quick and Simple
The Black IRIS 30" Wire Pet Pen is a perfect dog pen for me. It is
easy to setup in less than 1 minute. I just unfold it out and open
the door and my dog walks right in. This pen is just big enough for
my 40 pound dog to lay around in. I used this while camping recently
to keep him close when giving him a break from a dog leash. It is made
of a heavy gauge wire and has a epoxy coating to prevent rust.
I would say it is pretty sturdy, however, when I am outside, I make
sure you use the included 6 stakes to stake it down. I am going
to purchase an additional one and attach it using the easy-twist panel
connectors to make a bigger pen. It has a few extra connectors the
to attach the wire panels together.

The "IRIS 30" Wire Pet Pen" is a very portable unit that allows you to take pet pen where ever your going. It sets up in a flash and with U shape anchor pins, keeps it firmly in place. This pen is perfect for your pets under 40 pounds. The gate stays closed with the slide pin latch system making it easy to open and close. When your done with the pen, just fold it up and place in the truck until the next time you go anywhere and take your dog. It is made of durable steel wire so it is lightweight.This pen keeps my dog from running around and he can see everything that is going on as well. My friends have bought one for themselves and love it. Highly recommend this product.
My animal can now enjoy the outdoors and feel safe
I have inside cats that are not allowed outside until now. When the weather is nice I take them out back and place them in the pen. Being they aren't use to being ouside the feel of the grass gets a little strange to them so I place a wewe pad down for them to gradually get use to the new feeling. Also with the wewe pad down I can see any bugs. The cats love this new experience and so far they have no desire to escape. There is not a cover on this model so I stay with them when they are in the pen so they are safe.
Good size but not too stable
The pen was okay. I was expecting the sides to be a little more stable. Unless you stake it to the ground, the pen will continue to move with even the smallest push or tug. Be great for smaller animals as temporary enclosure. The top of the pen is wide open. The clips are easy to attach and the pen is very easy to store. Seems to be pretty well made. Overall still a decent product. Satisfied mostly. *received free for review.
