The highlights given above has already given you some idea, and I am going to cover all these in the review. Honestly speaking, dog playpen by Kousi is one of the most attractive dog playpens that I have come across but it definitely has a downside. So let’s dive in and explore.

Main things to look for while buying the Dog Playpen by Kousi

Dog Playpen by Kousi

Safety and Durability:

The good thing about the dog playpen by Kousi, it is made out of plastic, so it can be washed and cleaned easily. As you can see in the picture it has transparent panels.

I haven’t seen many dog playpens which has this beautiful feature.

Yes it is safe because it is made out of plastic. So it does not have any sharp edges or anything like that. This is usually a problem with wired and metal playpens.

Style and Design:

It is awesome if you like minimal design. This dog playpen has a neat design, so it will nicely fit in with your home decor.

Size and Space:

It may be suitable for small dogs; let’s say about 14 inches in height. But I would say it is more a good choice for rabbits, cats and other small pets.

It encloses about twenty eight square feet of space. So I think that’s not too bad for your small dog.

Easy to Assemble:

First of all, this dog playpen by Kousi has twelve plastic panels, which effortlessly fits together in no time.

So it is easy to put it together and handy if you want to move it around your home.

The panels have inter-locking arrangement, which also makes it flexible to fit into various shapes and angles.

Easy Storage:

I have already mentioned it is easy to put it together and when needed you can easily dismantle it as well and store it in a safe place for future use.


It is cheap, so expect reasonable quality. I think for the price you will get a decent product.

Customer Problems (important consideration): 

Honestly it looks good, no doubt about that.

But after going through various reviews I will be cautious if I was buying it. I always look at the reviews by buyers who have ‘verified purchase’ status.

One of my friend uses it for her small dog – she has absolutely no problems. But she has such a well-behaved and calm dog.

As I said above it is definitely good for smaller pets. You will be absolutely fine.

But if you are thinking about even small dogs with high energy – you might want to explore a little more before you buy this.

The only reason I say this, there are other awesome options available to you.

Kousi was started about six years ago in China and then it ventured into the US market. It has grown significantly since than. I would not say their products are excellent quality. You get what you pay, their products are priced very competitively.
