An ex-pen is commonly called an exercise pen or dog/puppy playpen. We utilize ex-pens a lot when raising puppies. They are “play pens” that are a protected area to put the puppy in when you are not available to watch them.

We attach one end of the ex-pen to a wire crate, which creates an area for play and sleep.
Here are pictures of our set up:
