Concealment is critical for a hunter but what about your dog? This light-weight, durable blind can be set up in a marsh or on dry land thanks to its retractable legs. A mesh bottom allows water to drain if your dog gets wet. This blind is so comfortable, some users report that it became their dog’s indoor bed!

Hard Core Dog Timber Stand
