If a tent is used for camping, a dog tent is used for canine camping as well. While this may be true, a dog tent has more uses other than that. It does not only serve as the camping quarters of your dog, it can also be utilized as a portable kennel in favor of a dog crate, whenever you are taking your pet along when traveling. A dog tent can protect your outdoor dog from both rain and sun, while your indoor pup can enjoy some privacy in it. The latter is an advantage for dogs that get nervous when traveling far from home, or are brought to new, unfamiliar places. Whenever they feel the need to, they can retreat to this so-called home away from home to find refugee.
Well, let us go back to the camping side. To maximize your camping experience, it is best to get a separate tent for your dog, especially if it is exceptionally large. Based on the size of your tent, room may come at a high price. It is difficult to get a good night's sleep in confined places, especially when you have an uneasy hound sharing your space. You may have enough room but still, dog tents can offer a number of advantages in not so pleasant situations: the small of a damp dog and muddy paws can be limited to the neighboring tent.
Many dog tents are simple to assemble, as well as space savers when not in use. They are available in a wide variety of sizes, styles and costs, so it would not be hard to find one that is suitable for your dog. So, investing in a dog tent is worth all the convenience it gives as well as the appreciation received from your dog in return.
Reason to Take Along Your Dog While Camping
There is no reason why you should not. If your furry best friend is well-behaved and not likely to run wild in the outdoors, there are more advantages than disadvantages for both of you (plus the rest of the family in case they are tagging along). You and your dog will enjoy the breath of fresh air plus the freedom, and he will be your loyal companion all through your adventures. This is a lot better that leaving him in a kennel, or depending on neighbors / friends to watch over him and keep him satisfied. You will not feel guilty or worried, and your dog will not blame you. You will both relax and enjoy the site as well as the sounds and create happy memories, including the long-hikes, the dog-exhaustion, a new and natural environment plus the time and experiences you will share. So, what are you waiting for? Have fun together!
