This pop-up tent works perfectly well for small dogs. But any type of lean-to or shade will work. What's imperative is to keep your dog out of direct sunlight. Our dog expert, Jeff Franklin, says: "Heat is my number one fear for all dogs. Dogs are just not designed to be out in 90 degree heat with the sun beaming down. They naturally go to shade.
