Jenna Hatch is a graphic designer based out of central and northern Illinois, she has spent the past 10 years studying graphic design. Currently, as a senior at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She was the eldest child of three other children, so nurturing is in her blood due to this. Her passion is to make the life of people around her easier on a day-to-day basis. Jenna’s capstone project was inspired by her own life and as a pet owner. She saw an opportunity to make the life of dog owners more flexible and the quality of life for the dog better. The Playpen is a virtual reality fence for urban dog parents. The Playpen is an Invisible Fence on the go. Many young dog parents do not have a fenced-in yard for their pups to safely play in, this should not be a reason why people should refrain from providing a happy home to a dog.

The Playpen is meant to keep your dog safe from changing factors in the environment and keep the barrier close to the human.
