I bought a new little shade tent today. I have a nice, big tent that has lots of room to fit many dogs and friends, but last summer 2 poles broke during a storm. I want to get the poles replaced because nothing is wrong with the rest of the tent, but until then, I thought it would be nice to have a small tent for day trips or fun matches.
I found this little beach tent that should work well. It is easy to set up and will easily fit an x-pen or a couple of crates and a chair or two. It has a front and back door for nice airflow and it is silver on the top so I hope that helps reflect the sun. It will be a bit of shade and shelter anyway and since it didn't cost very much, if it doesn't work out, I won't be out a ton of money.
The dogs like it already. I swear I didn't make the dogs pose for this picture. I set the tent up in the living room (I didn't want to set it up outside incase I didn't like it and needed to return it) and the dogs made themselves right at home. I am surprised I even got it put together because they were trying to get in it while I was still setting it up.
