Every year that I have a litter I get something new for the puppies, and this year I decided to get an ISIS Plastic Pet Pen. This is the Best Selling Puppy Pen on Amazon, and I definitely think it is worth it. The pen is super easy to put together and is very sturdy. I like the clean white look. You can also buy add on Panels to make it bigger.
I lined the bed area with cozy Sherpa fleece. I put the Ugodog right next to the Sherpa fleece, so the puppies will find the potty tray as soon as they step out of their bed. They have actually started using the potty already. I lined the Ugodog with Newspaper to absorb the wetness, and also to give the Ugodog the newspaper smell. Newspaper has a distinctive odor and it will help the puppies to know where to potty even with a brand new Ugodog. Essentially the puppies will be Ugodog trained as well as paper trained.
As you can see there is lots of room for Misty to nurse her puppies, and the puppies will have more room to play and explore.
Moving the puppies to their big puppy pen is another milestone in the puppies journey. Now they will be developing clean potty habits for the future. A clean pen is very important aspect of potty training.

I think Misty likes the new space. Hopefully the puppies love it too!
