"I bought the medium tent for my dog who is about 30 pounds. She started chewing just about...everything in the house so I looked into getting a crate but they all seemed so small and I wanted something with a little more room and that I could easily take with me when I travel. This 'pup tent' is great! There is plenty of room for her dog bed, food and water bowl plus some toys. I thought she would chew through it at first but it's very durable.

Shady Dog Shade Screen

The Shady Dog Shade Screen is a protector of wind, heat and sun for your dog’s kennel. Similar tent material but a bit tougher, the shade screen is made of high-density polyethylene which is a common plastic used in products and packaging such as milk jugs, garbage containers and detergent bottles. The shade is knitted together using a lockstitch, the most common form of stitching by sewing machines. The shade screens are UV-stabilized which means they will not break down over long periods of sun exposure. They come in two colors, black and green and provide a 60% shade factor and can reduce the temperature by as much as 15 degrees which would make a 90-degree day a 75-degree day for your dog in their kennel. The Shady Dog Shade screen achieves its purpose by blocking hot infrared sun rays and by drawing cool air up from the ground. The manufacturer claims these dog kennel shades will not rot or mildew. The complete kennel cooling kit includes a Kennel Cover, Dewitt Clip-ITS to hang and secure the shade screen, and a spiral wrapped filament rope for any tie-down needs. The shade comes in two colors (black and green) and 4 sizes: 6’x8’, 6’x10’, 10’x10’ and 12’x12’.

“We used this for an existing 10 x 10 kennel for our collie and it is working out just fine. I really should have ordered the 12 x 12 to give us more room to tie it down, but this one is working.” – JAS, Amazon.com

“Love this shade. We installed it underneath a pergola to diffuse light just a little more. It definitely does drop the temperature underneath a few degrees. The fabric does stretch a bit. However, the reason I took off 1 star is that one or two of the grommet holes is tearing away from the fabric.” – David from YTown, Amazon.com
