The Origin of the Lucidium Dog Pen by Clearly Loved Pets
There are many reasons a person many need an enclosure for their pet; safety is a common concern. Whether you have a whelping dog, a new puppy, a post-surgical pup, a confused senior, or a rascal who gets into everything, sometimes it is necessary to provide security. Numerous options exist including: cages, crates, x-pens (exercise pens), kennels, and dog gates. While these options may be practical, let's face it, they are usually not a pleasant addition to your home décor. Furthermore, most pet owners feel their pets are family members, and the use of a cage is becoming increasingly objectionable.
We felt it was time to search for a kinder alternative. Like other family members, your dog needs a safe and comfortable place to rest, a bedroom of their own. We thought it should be stylish, like the rest of your home. But what would your pup say? We asked dogs what qualities they would like in their bedroom, and here are the results:
- 99% said, "We want to be as close to our family as possible."
- 98% said, "We want a large space, so we have room to move around."
- 90% said, "We want to have an interesting view."
- 99% of small dogs said, "I know you want me to hold it all day, but that is really hard for me and I am very uncomfortable. I really appreciate a spot where I can pee, and then rest comfortably until you get home."
- 75% said, "I don't care that much what color it is and I want my family to be happy, so they can choose the color." *except for poodles, they wanted to choose their own color.
- 100% said, "I would rather go to work or school with my family than stay home alone, but if I need to be kept safely in a pen, the Lucidium Dog Pen is much better than a small cage."
- 100% said, "Thanks for asking."
Lucidium Dog Pen with Clear Walls
Clearly Loved Pets went to work and developed a revolutionary new indoor enclosure for small and medium dogs. With clear acrylic walls, our oversized pens provide a generous space, while simultaneously decreasing visual clutter. The three size options will comfortably accommodate your pet(s) while you are gone with space for a bed (or two or three), a water bowl, toys, and a pee pad if needed. The appealing aesthetic allows for favorable placement, in the heart of your home. Our pens come in a beautiful selection of colors including: pink, blue, green, and matches-everything silver.
Pen Use and Care
The Lucidium Dog Pen is designed for small to medium sized dogs. Ultimately, it is up to the pet owner to decide if this enclosure is appropriate for their pet. Some active medium dogs may be able to jump out of the pen. Some older or shorter large dogs may do well in this pen. If you are unsure, please consult with your veterinarian.
Please watch the video below to understand the pen assembly process. While this video specifically shows assembly of a 27" tall, medium size pen, the process is similar for all models.
Introducing Your Dog to the New Pen
Once you have your pen assembled, bring your dog to the walls and tap on them with your fingers to introduce your dog to the concept of "clear" walls. Some dogs may bump into the walls at first, however most adjust quickly. If needed, place a strip of masking tape on the outside of the wall panels, at your dog's eye level, for several days.
Cleaning Your New Dog Pen
The acrylic walls of the pen should be cleaned with non-ammonia glass cleaner or a solution of diluted vinegar and water (4 parts water to 1 part vinegar) and a soft cloth. Mild soap and water can also be used. Do not use ammonia based glass cleaners or any abrasive cleaners. Other parts of the pen may be cleaned with mild soap and water.
Periodically check fasteners to be sure they are snug. Check door hardware to be sure fasteners are secure. Do not over tighten any hardware.
The pen can be partially or completely disassembled (except the door frame, which is permanently assembled) if it needs to be stored or moved. Simply reverse the steps used to assemble it. To move the assembled pen, close and latch the door and secure the swing arm with the two sliding sleeves.
