We searched Amazon for the best dog tents for your furry friend. A pet dog can make an excellent companion on a camping trip, but many owners often wonder where a large dog and even their small dogs will sleep.

The following dog tents are ideal for packing up along with a dog bed on your next outdoor adventure. Featuring easy pop-up designs and foldable functions, be sure to stuff these pet tents in the trunk before you head out on your next exciting excursion.
