Large Dog Tents

Crates and Tents for Large Dogs

A page for large dog tents and large soft dog crates. If you are looking for a pet tent for a large dog then take a look at the items below. Most are suitable for all but the very biggest hounds. But, as ever, make sure of your sizes and read the reviews carefully before buying. The Multi-Size page has other designs which might suit a large hound also as well as the 'Gazebos' link below.

Large Pet Tentlumsing very large tent

45 stars
buy x large tent for dogs

Size:
47.2" x 47.2" x 31.5"

Materials:
210D canopy with fiberglass poles

This is another offering from ‘Lumsing’ which is found on the same page as their previous release below. As this tent is somewhat different in design to their last, it’s a shame it doesn’t have its own page listing and separate reviews. That aside, it’s one of the bigger dog tents on the market, getting close to the size of the large ‘Gigapet Tent’ which can be found on our ‘Multi-sized’ page. The Lumsing utilizes an umbrella-type pop-up system which is common in fairly large tents for dogs. The frame is built around flexible fiberglass rods which support a 210D waterproof polyester canopy. A large door and three mosquito mesh windows with blinds provide good ventilation and the whole canopy is machine-washable on a gentle mode. A carry bag is included for transport or storage but there is no mention of included ground stakes which would be nice extras to have. As with its predecessor below, this tent is fairly new to the market and so we’ll have to wait and see how this bigger brother fares!

buy large tent for dogs

Size:
45" x 32" x 27"

Materials:
210D canopy with fiberglass poles

Apart its name and color, this tent looks very similar indeed to several already listed below. It could well be, in fact, a rebadged version of one of these as the dimensions are very similar also! This may or may not be a bad thing because, on the whole, these kinds of tents do well in the reviews - and so maybe a winning formula is a good thing to copy! This tent comes with plenty of mesh windows and a zippered door. The 210D, UV protected, water-proof polyester cover is held up with fibreglass rods and the whole tent can be anchored with the included metal ground stakes. A carry bag is another little extra. The Lumsing is new on the marketplace and, at the time of writing, is yet to receive many customer reviews - those that have been offered, however, are fairly good. As mentioned before, a little look further down this page might give you a good idea of what to expect. The one advantage this tent may have over its lookalike rivals at this time, though, is its price – worth looking at and comparing!


Portable Pop-Up Dog Tentportable pop up tent for dogs

35 star
bb

Size: 31" x 31" x 31"

Materials: Polypropylene, polyester and steel wire

This is the second time around that we've featured this particular tent on this page - it disappeared for a while but now it's back. Has anything changed? No, not really. The first thing to say is that it only just makes it as a 'large' dog tent. It's suitable mainly, however, for medium-sized dogs and just maybe for hounds at the smaller end of the large breed spectrum. Please take note of the dimensions for the both the tent and your dog before buying! The reviews (although there are only a couple now after the product's reappearance) are echoing those of the past - fairly average. The main concerns raised from both periods are that the tent is hard to pack away after use and that it's quite a flimsy item, prone to toppling with an exciteable dog inside! We certainly don't regard this as a good canine camping tent! On the plus side is an included carry bag (useful if you can get the tent back into it!), plenty of ventilation and, of course, the price! For its size it's quite an affordable tent that could be good for just casual use. And so if you have a relaxed, medium-sized dog and just want a cheap, occasional shelter this could be good for you and your dog. If not, carry on looking!


Alcott Pup Tentsmall dog tent 1

4 star
bb

Size:
35" x 28" x 45"

Materials: Nylon and mesh with metal ground stakes and waterproof base

1stVery good reviews for this basic but reliable tent. Simple to assemble and take back down. Mesh inserts help with air circulation and a waterproof base helps to block damp ground. Comes with assembly instructions and travel bag. A good mid-level tent at a fair price. Some minor concerns from reviewers about durability but otherwise highly recommended. And, as a point of interest, this is our most popular referral sale item and we rate it at number one in our tent chart! (It also makes the top spot in our sales chart!) Certainly the best value for money dog tent currently available on the market and it will be a hard one to beat!


MDOG2 Tentmdog2 dog tent

35 star
bb

Size:
35" x 28" x 45"

Materials: Polyester, mesh and fibreglass rods

This seems to be a good solid tent but, unfortunately, there is only one review at this moment in time on Amazon to glean any more information about it. Not to be defeated, however, we have searched the net and found a few customer reviews for this tent on other retail sites that are mostly on the positive side. Our rating is based on these external opinions also and so have a look and see what you think yourself. The design looks good and is, apparently, waterproof (some say not) and UV protected. Its 210 Denier polyester cover incorporates a zippered door and mesh windows and is held up with fibreglass rods. The tent is easy to erect and take down and folds into its own carry bag. This product seems to tick all the boxes, including the one for price, and at least it is shipped and sold by Amazon but, even so, be sure before you order!


Sturdi Medium / Large Pet Tentmedium large pet tent

45 star
sturdi dog tent

Size:
up to 36" x 36" x 24"

Materials: 600D polyester with mesh

silver medalCertainly not the tallest of pet tents and so look further up and down the listings if you have a very big dog. Size aside, this tent, which has been on the market for a while now, is doing well with a constant high star average. Lots of mesh in the design gives it good ventilation and all is supported by arcing poles. The rest of the canopy is constructed with a tough 600D polyester. It sets up reasonably quickly (although one review does complain about a lack of instructions!). It does come, however, in a choice of a few colors, at the time of writing, and with matching storage bags. We've always liked the look of this product. It might have been one to challenge the great Alcott tent (also in this section) for the top spot in our charts if it were not for its slightly restrictive height. But for the right-sized dog we think it's one of the best you can buy!


Lightspeed Outdoors Catalina Shelterdog shelter beach canopy

5 stars
buy dog sun shelter
(Currently Unavailable)

Size: 86" x 51" x 47.75"

Materials: UPF 50+ canopy with fiberglass frame

Not deliberately designed with dogs in mind, but this Lightspeed shelter is at least dog-friendly with a waterproof PE floor and a UPF 50+ protective canopy which guards against the blazing sun. The shelter, which is based around a light but strong fiberglass frame, is very easy to erect – taking a minute or two at the most (check out the video on site). The canopy is also very large and could easily accommodate a large hound along with its owner if required! Obviously, this is not an enclosed tent: It has two completely open sides and the other two are trimmed with mesh. This ensures that on those hot humid days in the yard or on the beach those refreshing summer breezes won’t go to waste – and if the wind ever picks up a little more the shelter has built in sand-pockets for stability! The Catalina also comes at a good price, a one year warranty, a carry case and great reviews!


Light Summer Pet Tentdog sunshade tent

3 stars
buy summer dog shelter

(3 Stars Pending More Info.)

Size:
37.4" x 25.6" x 33.4"

Materials: Wire frame and mesh

This very different-looking but attractive collapsible tent has certainly been designed with the warmer months of the year in mind. There’s more than enough mesh to provide good airflow and provide both pet and owner with good 360 degree visibility – even more so, of course, if the large, zippered door is left open. With this latter point in mind, we’ve added it on to our ‘Large Tent’ page, but be sure to check the dimensions of both tent and your dog before ordering as it’s more a medium-sized tent with the porch closed up. The product comes with its own carry case but, as far as we know, doesn’t include ground stakes which is something to bear in mind when using it outdoors - this may be a problem as it’s a very lightweight shelter built around a wire frame. The same might apply if you have a very energetic dog! All in all we love the look of this product with its quirky design, but we know little else about it. We are waiting for the customer reviews to come in and will amend our information accordingly. The price seems fair at this time but, even so, be sure before you buy.


Dog Kot-to-Trotdog kot to trot

4 star
bb
(Currently Unavailable)

Size: 48" x 24" x 36"

Materials: scratch resistant canvas

This neat-looking patio shade is for large dogs - they obviously couldn't get hold of a suitably-sized doggy model for the picture as this 'Kot' is supposedly able to hold around 150 pounds! That said, we've looked around on the net and seen this particular product with an adult labrador sat comfortably upon it. A slightly bigger hound may still fit but we wouldn't recommend anything much larger. The Kot is entirely made from waterproof materials and so should be good come rain or shine. The folding design (we're not sure as to what material is used for the frame) supports the scratch-resistant canvas cot and canopy. When folded down the product fits into its very own supplied carry bag, and so portability and storage get a big thumbs up! The design is available in three colors at this time: almond; blue; and green. There are only a couple of reviews at the time of writing but they are both good. Time will tell if the Kot-to-Trot is really Hot-toTrot!


Iconic Cozy Camp Pet Tenticonic cozy camp pet tent

bb

(3 Stars Pending More Info.)

Size: 35" x 28" x 45"

Materials: 600D Oxford fabric and mesh

We were in two minds whether or not to add this medium / large dog tent to this page as it has yet to recieve many reviews and we know little about it ourselves. We found  the same tent reviewed elsewhere and the customers seemed fairly happy with it but there was some concern about the strength of the poles. And so proceed with a little caution in mind. Basically, this looks similar to the very popular Alcott Pup Tent which can be found further up this page - it has the same look and even has the same dimensions but lacks window blinds.  It is made from water-resistant 600D Oxford Fabric and comes with extra built in insulation from the ground. It has 2/3 mesh windows and a door which can be zipped closed. It is quick to set up and comes with its own carry bag. Looking similar to the Alcott is one thing, whether it performs as well or better is another. If it does - great! But if it doesn't then the Alcott remains the obvious choice if you like the look of this tent but would like it cheaper! And until we know better (or worse) we have given this product an average rating.


Wenzel 2 Room Tenttwo room tent

45 star
bb

Size:
10' x 5' x 8'

Materials: Polyester, mesh and shock-corded fibreglass poles

An alternative to a typical separate dog tent is to find a good human tent that can be partitioned off into two or more areas. We've featured other such tents capable of this before on our pages. There can be certain advantages in this approach depending on different circumstances: it's probably going to be cheaper to buy one tent rather than two if neither you or your hound already have one; your dog may not like being separated from you by too much distance; and, similarly, you might want to keep a closer eye on your dog and not leave him to his own devices in a separate tent! If you fall into one of those catergories then this Wenzel Pine Ridge Tent may interest you. You may just be able to make out in the picture the divider that basically splits the tent in two, leaving each side with its own mesh door and mesh vents. The product was designed to sleep 4-5 people and so there's still plenty of space available in either room after being partitioned: 5' x 8' and with a max height of 5' for both sides. This Wenzel tent is a very popular, very well-recieved product at a very fair price. Humans like it - would your dog?

Go Pet Soft Cratecheap soft dog crates

4 star
affordable soft pet crates

Size:
48" x 32" x 39"
(other sizes available via same link)
Materials: Lightweight frame with mesh

This Go Pet Soft Crate is available in a number of sizes but for the purposes of this article on our ‘Large’ page we will concentrate, naturally on the biggest which is described as X-Large. But be sure to click the link and check out the other sizes if you have a smaller dog also, however, as the Go Pet is very highly rated across the whole range with hundreds of positive reviews! The first thing to say about this particular dog crate range is that all the sizes are very reasonably priced – including the bigger products! There’s plenty of mesh for good air circulation and roll-down blinds for adapting to different conditions. When not in use the crate can be folded down to a remarkably thin two inches allowing for easy transport and storage. A carry case is included along with an apparently genuine sheepskin/lamb’s wool mat! (Even so, some dogs may require a little more padding!) Overall, considering both the prices and the reviews, it’s no wonder that the Go Pet is becoming increasingly popular!


Petsfit Mainly Mesh Travel Cratepetsfit travel home

buy mesh dog crate

Size:
34" x 24" x 23"

Materials: Lightweight metal frame with mesh

This is not a particularly large dog crate – more medium/large and so be sure to check its dimensions (and your pet’s) before considering it. There are much bigger crates further down this page and on the ‘Multi-sized’ page if you are seeking a different size. One thing this crate definitely is, however, is highly rated! Petsfit have been very consistent at building good quality soft dog crates and this one continues that trend. What makes this product stand out is the amount of mesh that’s involved. Three large openings (top, side and front) are almost given over entirely to zippered mesh windows, making this a very well ventilated crate indeed! The material is built around a lightweight, metal frame that is easy to erect and collapse without the use of tools. It comes with a removable, washable pad. As hinted at before, this crate also comes with fantastic reviews and seems perfect for the right-sized, crate-trained dog!


GoGo XXL Soft Dog Cratebuy large soft dog crate

4 star
buy xl soft dog crate

Size:
48" x 32.25" x 35.5"

Materials: Steel frame with canvas

This GoGo crate has a different look to it which makes it stand out from many other large dog crates. The design is refreshing in more ways than one – the very big mesh side panels almost reach from top to bottom and these, in addition to zipped mesh doors, provide great ventilation as well as visibility. A powder-coated tubular steel frame forms a solid frame for the crate around which a heavy duty, water-resistant canvas is held with 1000D reinforcing at the corners. A waterproof faux leather base completes the shell which can all be folded down when not in use for transport or storage. Additional items include a zipped top opening, ground anchors, pull down blinds and storage pockets and a carrying handle. The reviews for the GoGo XXL thus far are excellent. It does seem to offer a very good solution for crating large dogs.


X-Large Dog Cratex large dog crate

Size:
42" x 29" x 34"

Materials: Water resistant with mesh vents

Here'a another crate from 'Guardian Gear'. You can see more from this maker further down this page. This X-large version is rated at around the same level by the reviewers - not bad but not great either. Judging by the negative comments, it seems that if your dog is not content in a crate for any length of time and wants out - it'll get out! That's certainly something to consider unless you know your hound to be happy when crated. Even then, some say their dog was well-trained but the sturdiness of the design was at fault and so further caution is advised. The design, however, is well ventilated and easy to erect and take down. It comes with a faux sheepskin pad for comfort, a carrying case and ground stakes too.

Size:
42" x 28" x 32"

Materials: Steel tube frame and mesh

1stVery popular large dog crate from EliteField with lots of impressed customers. This versatile crate/tent has 3 doors, 2 accessory pockets and a steel-framed structure. It also comes with a free carry bag and mat. It is quick and easy to both erect and fold down. A good, no nonsense, solid piece of kit at a fair price! Our favorite soft dog crate and, indeed, holds top spot in our soft crate chart! Not the cheapest, but certainly one of the top dogs!


Guardian Gear XL Dog Crateguardian gear large dog crate

35 stars
xl soft dog crate

Size: 48" x 31" x 31"


Materials:
Tubular steel frame with 600D canopy

Opinions are quite divided over this large dog crate and so reading the available comments is definitely advised: most are favorable - but not all! But do bear in mind that most of the negative reviews are from those who obviously don’t have crate-trained dogs, and who are then surprised that their disgruntled pet decides to chew its way out! We believe a dog should be educated to view a crate as its own place of safety – not as a jail cell! Anyway, lecture over and back to the description which does read well! The covering fabric is made from a 600 Denier nylon and the tubular steel frame underneath gives the dog crate its strength. This frame is also foldable for easy storage. There’s plenty of mesh for good air circulation and visibility whilst reflective trims and a storage pocket provide a couple of nice extras. Being on the ‘Large’ page we’re concentrating, of course, on the large versions of this crate but there are smaller types available via the same link. Be aware, though, that the colors do change with each different size – pictured is the green XL.


Paws 'n' Claws K9 Canopy for Truckspaws n claws dog truck canopy

45 star
bb

Size: 48" x 32" x 30"

Materials: 600D polyester and mesh

A large dog canopy designed primarily to be anchored down via tethers to a truck bed, but could be put to equally good use as a shelter (in fine weather) once the destination has been reached. 600D polyester and large, adjustable tear-resistant mesh openings sit around a strong frame (we presume of aluminum, or possibly steel) allowing for lots of air circulation. Reflective fabric also helps to keep a dog cooler on long, hot journeys or on sunny days out in the yard or field. The tethers supplied (please note that the central leash tether is bought separately) are adjustable and are fitted with gutter hooks. These attach to a suitable truck's tie-down brackets, making for a solid and safe ride for your hound. The whole design is easy to assemble and keep clean, including the half-inch foam pad which provides a pet with some comfort on his or her travels. A good design that does the job it's supposed to do well. We wouldn't suggest use, however, in heavy rain or with the possibility of heavy rain occuring on your journey without a standby tarp of some sort - or you may end up with one damp, disgruntled dog! The reviews are mainly excellent at the time of writing.
