RVing Dogs Enjoy Portable Pens

Visit any RV park or campground and you’ll find lots of dogs. Yes, our precious pups are very dear to us and we will do whatever we can to make their lives more comfortable. Portable pens by Precision Pet allow the RVer to create a temporary yard for their dogs. The pens fold up for easy storage and transport and they don’t contain any bolts, screws or wires that would scratch or harm your dog. This RVer put two of these pen kits together to make a nice enclosure around the entrance to their toy-hauler. These enclosures fasten together with thumb fasteners and can be set up and taken down quickly. You can also buy them with covers so your dog can have shade.

  • I like the Outward Hount Pet Tent & Shelter. It's quick to assemble, has it's own carrying case. My mini schnauzer loves it. I added a fleece crate pad to the floor and my little guy quickly fell in love with his little "Pup tent". It's sold in different places on the Internet. To get a look, try this website:

  • This idea looks great -- for small dogs, and I have seen something similar in use a the campground I work during the summer. But I doubt it would be as effective with some large dogs. For instance, if my black lab were to see a squirrel, that enclosure wouldn't hold her. She is a sweetheart, but squirrels are her downfall.

  • the x-pens coming in varying heights. if your large dogs are used to something like that and respect the pen, they work quite well.

  • These pens also work quite well for larger dogs too. We have two black and tan coon hounds. We purchased a portable pen from a dog supply catalog. It's fairly large, they do come in different sizes, and it's the best thing to put our dogs in. They were always getting tangled together, or around table or chair legs. Put a blanket on the ground, a tarp on top if the sun is too hot. It's great

  • In addition to trialing my dogs at sheep dog trials, I also fulltime RV. I've created 4 ft. stake out chains that hook to eye bolts that I've attached to the bottom of my rig. That works pretty well. But, after awhile, the dogs get very bored, start digging holes under the rig, and basically, get really squirrely and dirty. So, I have wound up using the stake outs when I just need to have the dogs outside for short periods of time...like set up and break down. I've also tried using xpens. I like them a lot. Except that they are bulky and can be tough to store if they are over 30 inches in height.
    Recently I saw an x pen called, It's a Breeze Too soft sided exercise pen. They come in all sizes including 42" and 48" tall. They say they are light (15 lbs for the 42") and fold down small. I was just wondering if anyone else out there has had any experience with this type of x pen. The price is not bad. But, I'd hate to outlay anymore money on more gadgets if they don't ultimately live up to their advertising claims. Thanks in advance!
