PICK A PEN
What type of pen is ideal for your needs? Looking at the different materials pet pens are made of can be useful.
1. Hard plastic

2. Painted metal
Pros: Durable and economical. Cons: Heavier than plastic. They are prone to rust and regular repainting is advisable. Limited designs.
Pros: Has a natural look; designs are quite sturdy. Cons: Most animals tend to chew on the wood. Not practical for outdoor use during the rainy season as they tend to rot.
