Question Please help!

I am looking for a wooden dog pen for the pups to use during the day. Since they are in the teething stage it's not possible for me to let them run free in the kitchen without watching them like a hawk. I just want a dog pen that looks okay, and blends into the kitchen.

I have found some really nice ones by Richell, they are expandable and are perfect for what I need. BUT, I live in the UK and I can't find an American website that could ship one to me and I can't find any from the UK

So does anyone have any suggestions on where I can find a nice looking dog pen, preferably wooden and big enough for the four pups.

Or any other suggestions what I could do?
This is the pen that I want but can't find in U.K.

I have seen these on Ebay, and was always impressed by the price.
Indoor Wooden Wood Dog Pet Cage Kennel Crate Carrier Metal Fence Large Playpen | eBay

I don't know if you want a bigger one though? I have two crates that size, they were a good size for the two pups, so maybe you could get two? They are definitely cheap enough lol

That's exactly what I was going for looks wise, it's just I already have crates like that I really wanted a big pen for them all to share. I've been looking for pens in the uk but all I can seem to find is those metal cage ones

Maybe you could have one made? Buy the metal panels and have someone set them into a wooden frame for you.

Yeah I was considering asking my Granda, he's great with stuff like that and has spare time. He made my kennel and did an excellent job so that is a good idea to have one made.
I found the exact one I want on eBay, but it doesnt mention uk shipping so I have sent a message to check and hopefully they can ship it to me. If not I'm going to try and have one made.
Here is the kennel my Granda built for the chis...

Hi Jessica, just a thought but I wonder if a baby's cot would work as a playpen ? They do some beautiful wooden ones and if you didn't put the legs on it would be low to the ground. The only thing you would have to be careful of is the spacing of the bars.

This is not wood, but I use these for my two puppies.
Richell Convertible Indoor Outdoor Play Pen, I have six panels for inside and have 12 panels outside (my babies especially Ewa who is 1.5 lbs loves exploring and has found the tiniest wholes to run out of the yard) I am able to move it around our yard and the house. Maybe they have something like this that is wood and you can add more panels.
In my house I have their pee pad on one side and they have their toys and lounger to hang out together when I have to leave them at home. I have create trained them, but the babies love to be together so this works out for us, since they are not ready to roam the house freely.
