We’ve seen some pretty comfortable and cozy beds for the canine companion to sleep in on your next backpacking trip, but this one might be the most enticing; a cot for them to sleep on, aptly named – the Dog Cot.
If the idea of hauling a cot around for your dog sounds like overkill, take a moment to think about what you’ll do for comfort: pack a cot for yourself, carry around a camping chair or even a cushion to sit on. Why not give your dog the same luxuries?
The Dog Cot is pretty simple in design; folding legs and a soft cotton canvas cloth for the pooch to rest on. Designed by Snow Peak, it’s essentially just like Snow Peak’s folding beach chair – just one for your dog to sleep on. The legs are sturdy stainless steel, but the entire thing weighs a mere 1.5 pounds, so it’s easy to haul around and get to the campsite. It even comes with a handy carrying and storage case – just like that folding lawn chair. And, the canvas also comes off easily for washing.
Is it a necessary piece of camping gear? We’d wager not. Some dogs might not even like it. But for those who just love to be pampered and can’t imagine spending a night on the ground, they might just love it.
