Ok so it's not really camping! I'm looking for something to provide shade and shelter from rain when pup and I attend dog shows. I have to be able to carry it from the car and put it up and down pretty rapidly by myself (can't leave dog in car)
Any ideas. So far I've seen:
Fishing brollies. Not much shelter but light and cheaper.
Gazebo. Difficult to put up myself?
Inflatable shelters. Expensive and heavy.
Argh! I need a motorhome! confused

You want a sports pop up pod.

this sort of thing

Wolfiefan Fri 19-May-17 20:26:18

They look great but I need something bigger. Pup is an Irish Wolfhound so not a chance we would fit in one of those! grin

DonkeyOaty Fri 19-May-17 20:29:19

Oh! I was imagining a pupper not a stately majestic beaut!

<kicks self>

Wolfiefan Fri 19-May-17 20:34:28

Yeah. Stately and majestic!

EZUP's are what we use,

Wolfiefan Fri 19-May-17 21:09:56

Eek. £300!!! Inflatable ones look cheaper!

I've got a gazebo that I put up and down by myself. Got it from a garden centre, I think they were calling it a pop up gazebo. It's not really pop-up, but the legs are already fitted and just need extended and clicked into place. The poles for the roof are all attached and concertina in and out. The thing is to get one that doesn't need you to connect poles. It has its own carry case and is light and easy to carry about.

Sorry should also add that it was only about £60 or so, would definitely recommend but I have no idea as to brand/model etc

Wolfiefan Fri 19-May-17 22:48:28

Thanks wonder. Been looking on Amazon. (Live rurally). But hard to figure out what would work.

I've an Ozark Trail gazebo that I can manage up/down on my own...

Wolfiefan Fri 19-May-17 23:37:58

Off to google!

Wolfiefan Fri 19-May-17 23:42:03

Nope. No longer seems available in UK!

Mum4Fergus Sat 20-May-17 00:40:34

Bugger...I got mine from Asda hmm

Look at the Coleman Instant Tourer.

No advice but very gorgeous pupper you have!

Wolfiefan Sat 20-May-17 12:49:06

Looks good. Might be too warm on a hot day. Fussy? Me? Pup deserves the best! grin

Wolfiefan Sat 20-May-17 13:02:04

Thanks @harderandharder2breathe
She's mummy's baby puppy!

I just got one of these for camping. Easy to put up and packs down small

winewolfhowls Sat 20-May-17 22:46:05

That's a gorgeous dog, looks a real character

Wolfiefan Sat 20-May-17 22:48:39

She is a complete character!!
Tarp was on my list. Just worried about getting tangled in the guys!
Found a great pop up (literally) gazebo. Quest 4. But with 2 solid sides it is £200!

Look on the OLPRO site. Pop up 'beach hut ' £43. Big, waterproof, big door. My only concern is I can't see guy lines / pegging points in case it was v windy. But it must be pegged to the ground so should be ok. Looks just the thing!
