Yeah, you can toss a sheet over it if you need to. It's not an issue for Halo, and on a warm day that would cut down on air circulation anyway, so I don't care about the lack of flaps. A nice feature, but not necessary for us.

'new' soft dog crate

This looks really great, I have a similiar one that's much less sturdy and GloryB tore thru the mesh with just one swipe of her paw the first time I had her in it.

Make sure what ever you get has windows for ventilation... Think I've been seeing more shelters like these:

Super-Brella Outdoor Beach Umbrella




And Coleman Road Trip Beach Shade

Its really dark but this is it in the morning right after I set up



I did buy the tent and I used it at a trial last weekend.
Here's a quick review
Pros:
-Fast set up and I can do it by myself
-Folds up small and can easily go back in the box it came in
-Big enough to fit my sports chair, Bentleys 42" crate and my fosters 30"(?) crate with a little extra room.
-Light weight
Cons:
- Being light weight is also con as it can (and will) blow away if not staked down.
- Not as much shade as I thought. It blocks the sun but it still gets a little warm. Although it is a noticeable difference from being in the sun.
- Ventilation. It has a good amount on the bottom but not on top.


That's all I can think of right now.

Funny how there are so many more indoor trials now I wonder how long tents/canopies will even be used at trial...

I have the noz2noz as well and it is very sturdy for a soft crate.

I would still take the time to train the dog to stay in it as it is not that hard to escape from. If they push hard enough on the zipper it will separate.

I just bought a MightyMite Dog tent. I really love it - it's super lightweight and easy to put up. I bought the fly sheet as well, which I haven't used yet. I do not think this would be a good solution for a dog who is not pretty relaxed in it since it's so lightweight though. I suspect a rambunctious pup could flip it pretty easily.
