I want to give Maya some more space to move around when she has to be in her area, so I was thinking of getting an x-pen for her. I was thinking that if I bought a piece of carpet to put underneath, then I wouldn't ruin my carpet.

How tall do you think I need to buy for her? She has never *knock on wood* tried to climb out of the playpen, but I wouldn't put it past her later. She 11 months old. She stay in there during the weekdays when I have daycare kids (for her safety) but she mostly sleeps. I play with her for a couple hours whent he kids nap.

She is pad trained, so I would put a pad at one end and her food and bed at the other like it is now in her playpen, but she would have more room to move.

Does anyone do this? Does it work out ok?

I have use an expen and on the floor use interlocking pieces designed for under workout equipment. Easy to clean but wouldn't work for chewers. Although my Harley just sleep and doesn't really use it but I am planning on a second dog so maybe they will play when I am not home?
