Is this ok to contain puppy?

Only about one more week till I bring my lil girl home and I realized that my kitchen is odd shaped and it wont allow me to use regular baby gates to contain her to an area in the house.. I dont want to contain her to the bathroom as the cats litterbox is in there so I had to find something else to use besides just closing a bedroom door and letting her ravage anything inside..so I bought one of these...

The link did not work. Does it have a net around or any opening that the puppy could get it head stuck in? If you have a collar on the puppy I would take it off as it could hang itself if does have anything the collar can get hooked onto. If the thing can be chewed on easily that could also be a risk for the puppy, The playsafe is designed for a baby not a puppy. I think a dog crate would be safer and easier to clean up when the puppy pee or spill food. I was able to see one and it look Ok ,I was thinking of a playpen. I still would take of the puppy collar so it will not get hooked on something. I have crate that was for my Standard Poodle and the crate came with a warning that the dog collar need to be
taken before going into the crate so it can't choke to death. I did read a sad story where some people left their puppy in the bathroom for the night and the poor puppy collar got hooked onto the toilet faucet and the puppy choked to death.

Well on the site is says it can be used for children or pets, its made of a heavy duty plastic, she is a smaller breed dog, and will only be 8 weeks old when I get her next week.. I dont want to keep her in her crate for 7 hours while im at work, thats just a disaster waiting to happen, she needs her crate and room to come out of the crate and use puppy pads, eat and play while im gone..

I was hoping someone here might have used one of these and found them sturdy enough to take a puppy putting their paws on it or not being able to chew it, I cant see how she would be able to chew on it but ya never know I guess..she will have lots of chew toys anyways.

Hard to say. It will likely work for a while, while she is small. What breed of dog is she?

The problem with plastic is puppies can chew it. You could likely get a similar x-pen made of metal, and made for dogs for not much more money.

She's a cocker spaniel, I only planned on using the playpen for awhile until she was able to hold her bladder for longer..she will eventually be completely kenneled.

ditto the metal xpen idea, if you shop around they're often not that much more expensive, plus you can take it outside to use on the lawn if you need to without having to worry about it. Puppies WILL CHEW, donno much about cockers, but the amount of damage a little pup can do to plastic is occasionally astounding...
