It’s getting pretty hot down here this time of year but we still love getting outdoors for a hike and a picnic with Daisy whenever we can! It’s been raining every day for almost 2 weeks, and we’ve already had our first tropical storm of the season, but yesterday was finally a nice sunny day so we decided to head out to the park and test out some shade canopies we received from Quik Shade recently.
Quik Shade makes awesome instant canopy and chair sets for humans, and has also started making instant canopy pet beds that are super easy to carry, quick to set up and offer shade and comfy ventilation on a hot day. In addition to great features to keep Daisy cool and sheltered on a hot day, I also love that the canopy bed folds up into an easy to store and carry tote bag with shoulder strap. We don’t have much room for storage, but it fits perfectly in the closet and doesn’t take up much room in my car’s trunk either!
With temps reaching the high 80’s and low 90’s already in many regions, we pet parents need to be careful to keep the fur kids cool and hydrated when out for a day at the park or beach. Pets can get easily overheated and dehydrated so it’s super great to have a handy instant canopy for her AND for us when we go for a family fun day. This pet canopy would also be perfect for hanging out together in the backyard or on the patio!
Daisy isn’t the only one who needs shade on a hot, sunny day…luckily, Quik Shade also invited us to test out the instant canopy and chair combo set, too! The whole set fits in a handy backpack that takes up less than a foot of cubic space, and is super fast to set up and take down. The backpack is perfect for hand-free carrying, as you can Woof Woof Papa modeling it above for us. What I love about both the pet canopy and the Quik Shade combo set for people is that their portability makes it easy to get off the beaten path and find the perfect spot away from the crowds, and not be limited to where there are shade trees or picnic shelters…we just make our own shade wherever we want! We’ll definitely be taking these to the beach and out for plenty more fun summer picnics with Daisy and her pals!
