Pet Pad – 5 Awesome Tents for Your Pet Dog to Chill Out
If you are the proud owner of a beautiful dog or adorable cat and you haven’t bought them their own tent yet, they are missing out. Pet tents are the ultimate in relaxation for tired pets and allow any owner to go camping with their pet. Of course, you wouldn’t expect your pet to sleep in a tent regularly but pet tents can be just the thing for de-stressing pets, especially when camping, travelling or out and about. The idea behind pet tents is to give a small animal a portable chill out space, especially on camping trips. Pets warmly welcome the opportunity to take a rest, seek respite from the cold or simply have a nap. Here are six awesome tents available to buy right now.
#1. Petego Umbra Portable Dog Popup Tent
A video of this pet tent for dogs is available on YouTube so you can see for yourself just how cute this product is. According to TheDogOutdoors.com, this tent can be transported everywhere the dog goes. The Petego Umbra tent looks like a large umbrella and folds up into a small duffle bag for great portability. The tent has durable, claw-proof and waterproof material, perfect for little paws. This tent is known as the UPet and is widely available from leading retailers.
#2. Kyjen Outward Hound Shade Shelter
This tent is a great way to accommodate large dogs while camping. Like the Petego Umbra tent, this shelter is extremely compact when folded up and is stowed in its own duffle bag. It is just as easy to transport as the rest of your camping gear. This dog shade shelter is 3-feet in height and four-feet square at the base making it large enough to accommodate most dogs. It comes with zipper enclosures and mesh sides, helping your dog to stay cool at any time of the year.
#3. Shady Dog Shade Screen
This isn’t a tent but is made from tent-like material. You can string it up between trees or posts to provide shade for your dog. Large dogs will appreciate this shade as the other tents in this list may make them feel claustrophobic. Most people will buy this screen to fix permanently over a dog kennel to offer respite from the sun and rain. However, this shade is perfect for camping and most dogs will happily sleep underneath this large screen.
#4. Pet Gear Octagon Pet Pen
The Octagon pet pen is by far the most unusual item on this list. As the name suggests, it is octagonal and makes a great place for pets to nap or sleep in. This pen has vented sides and the top can be covered or uncovered. This pen gives any dog plenty of ventilation and will also offer protection from the elements when required. Small pets up to 30 pounds will love this.
#5. Portable Dog Kennel
The dog tents mentioned on this lists are all strong and durable but are only intended for occasional use. If you plan to go camping for over a month or have multiple pet dogs to accommodation, you may need a durable protective enclosure instead. Enclosures are easy to assemble and made from galvanized steel frames for the ultimate in durability. They have wire mesh walls and a rip stop fabric roof that will give protection against the hottest sun and the heaviest rain and hailstorms. If you are serious about camping and have several dogs, this is the tent you’ll need.
As we’ve seen, it is important to match the tent with the size of the dog and the duration of the trip. It is also important to consider the dog’s sleeping preferences. Dogs that sleep at home would prefer a Petego enclosure-style tent while dogs used to sleeping out in the yard could probably make do with the Shady Dog Shade Screen. What do you think of our list?
