Staying cool outdoors & umm inside too

What do you do when the new stuff you order to keep your boys cool outside comes in on a rainy day???

You set it up in your living room!!

I ordered this tent that pops up on its own to provide some much needed shade for Riley in agility. We already had the soft sided carrier but I ordered him a cooling fan that will work well when I set up an x-pen inside the tent. We can not just buy things for Ry so I know Monte loves to sit on things and this chair thing was only $10 so what the heck, he loves it.

Really got to love a strong stay command for when mom is trying to take pictures, she takes forever LOL

Someone sure knows how to shop! Glad to hear they love the new gear. I think you are officially ready for your upcoming agility trial!

Joe that is a pet chair. This tent is more of a beach tent so you would want a lower beach chair if you want to sit in it.

I really want to get a bigger tent if I end up spending all weekend at a trial, this one is just good for when you know you are going to only be there for a couple of hours. It is mainly to provide shade for Riley to keep him as cool as possible before a run.

I love it!

Do you have any cool mats yet too? That helps to cool his skin from underneath on the days when the heat just can't be beat by shade.

Thanks Kimberly. Yes we have a cooling mat, I also bought one of these crate fans with the cooling unit for it. Has anyone ever tried these? I need to get batteries so have not tried it yet.

Yes, I got the ProSelect fan for Piaget to use at Westminster last year. I had been forewarned how hot it gets in the benching area, and they were right. He didn't really like that thing buzzing at him in his small space, but it kept the air moving around him in such tight (hot!) quarters. I recommend that you try it at home around the boys a few times before you need to use it in a strange place.

Now those are two fancy dogs!

My daughter likes to set up a tent in the house too. Riki and Daisy love it.

Your dogs look adorable.

I didn't just get havanese, I got a lifestyle!

Kimberly did you get the cooling system also? I did not buy any re-fills yet because I wanted to see if it really made a differance before spending the money. If it does I will order a couple of re-fills as they only last 2 hrs.

Christy when DH came home and saw my set up he just shook his head and walked out of the room, he never knows what I am going to order next LOL
