Getting the right size crate is only part of what you need for traveling with a dog, especially one that needs to be on a leash or behind a fence when outside. The answer here is a portable exercise pen. Exercise pens are highly portable fencing that allow you to set up a safe space for play just about anywhere. Exercise pens come in wire or plastic and many can join together for bigger spaces or hook up safely with a crate, giving your dog access back and forth between the two. Expect to pay anywhere from $70 to $100 online, depending on the material and size of the exercise pen.
