Just my opinion, but I've never seen the need for an indoor x-pen. If you're planning on crate training, you would put the puppy in the crate when you can't watch him/her and when you leave the apartment. If the pup's out socializing with you, it's never too early to start training the house rules, which of course means you have your eyes on the puppy. If you don't want to be that vigilant, get a long line and tether the puppy to your waist so you can grab them when they're going to get into something they shouldn't. As I said, that's just my two cents, but I'm big on training from the moment a puppy comes home.
