It’s dog fun time! Pitch a pup tent, get the outdoor toys ready, and head for greener pastures: Say goodbye to cabin fever and get outside with your dog. Oh and don’t fret if it’s raining when you and Fido have outdoor plans. Fidose of Reality discovered a treasure trove of doggie goodness from one of our Wigglebutts Uncorked fundraising sponsors. Read on, get the scoop, and there are prizes in store for you and your dog to win, too!
Home is where the dog is. Some companies purely, magically, and without reservation get “it,” the it being a passion of the highest order for dogs. P.L.A.Y. is one of those rare gems who truly care and it shows in every facet of their company.
I first met Will Chen, P.L.A.Y.’s Co-Founder and Managing Director, many years ago. Like most pet parents, we take a backseat to the spotlight shone on our dogs. Chen is no different. His dog, Momo, Chief Pug Officer, is well known as a model and the “face” of P.L.A.Y., which stands for Pet Lifestyle and You.
P.L.A.Y. has a complete line of award-winning products for dogs, and today we are highlighting our new instant favorite, the Scout & About Outdoor Dog Tent, or as we call it, “the pup tent.”
There are 2 things of which I completely falter: Cooking and assembling things. So when the folks at P.L.A.Y. sent me the outdoor dog tent for my dog, Dexter, to try, I squirmed a bit. Okay, a lot. How would I assemble a tent? I am the girl who considers a 3-star hotel “roughing it.” I do, however, take picnics and outdoor day adventures with Dexter and my spouse. A doggie tent for Dexter to seek refuge from bugs, sun, and the elements would be perfect for our many excursions.
And So It Goes
Setting up the P.L.A.Y. doggie tent was as easy as 1-2-3-4. Unfold, pull out, pull string, insert stakes if desired and wha-la: Doggie nirvana. Or at least the element protection thereof, see?
The tent retails for $119, and it is a super investment that you quite literally will have for years and years to come. It features:
- Mesh sides for ventilation and visibility
- Shelter from elements
- Water-resistant roof to keep the dog dry
- Cozy and I was even able to curl up in it for a cuddle with the dog
- Carrying case for ease of transport
- Fully enclosed floor that is well made (no cheap materials!)
- Made of durable and high performance 600-Denier PE fabrics that are commonly found in outdoor and camping products, these tents are waterproof and Intertek-certified UV-resistant to prevent water seepage and discoloration
- Weighs less than 5 pounds
- Fun for indoor play, too! We plan to use it as a little den for the dog. We put his indoor bed in it, and he went inside for a nap!
- Easy to clean: Just use a wet cloth or hose and let it dry.
- Bonus points: Made in a facility that meets the strict quality standards for infant and children products
- It measures 53.1″ x 53.1″ x 37 and comes in Vanilla or Mocha with a cute dog-themed print, see?

Warm Bellies Initiative
Being in a shelter can be extremely scary for pets – the unfamiliar smells, sounds and surroundings often cause anxiety and depression for a lot of animals. The fundraising arm of this blog is called Wigglebutt Warriors®, and we love when companies like P.L.A.Y. give back by paying it forward.
This is where YOU come in.
To help make the time spent in a shelter a little less scary, P.L.A.Y. wants to give homeless pets a cozy mat they can feel safe and warm on. Just having a warm mat instead of a cold concrete floor makes a world of difference.
You can buy a P.L.A.Y. bed for your dog and give a bed to a homeless pet in need!
How cool is that? Your dog get s a new oh-so-pawsome bed from P.L.A.Y. and a shelter dog gets a brand new bed, too. Win-win! Wag-wag!
