This Cot Is Camping Gear Your Dog Will Appreciate

We do everything we can to make ourselves comfortable sleeping outside, so why not help our dogs do the same?


We humans put as much effort as possible into making ourselves comfortable sleeping outside. We heft full-size air mattresses miles away from civilization, or to avoid that we spend millions on research and development to create equally cushiony pads that weigh less than a pound and pack down to the size of a soda can. Dogs get the short end of that stick though; they get the dirt, the little area of leftover space at the end of the tent. The masters of camp life at Snow Peak aim to change that with the Dog Cot.

The name says it all: the Dog Cot is an elevated platform for your dog to sleep on. Snow Peak used the same construction that it employs in one of its beach chairs to create the folding armature, and in many ways, the Dog Cot is like a camp chair without a back. Its legs are stainless steel, its platform, which is removable for washing, is cotton canvas. Yes, at $143, the Dog Cot is fairly pricey, but you did just drag your pal across a like and up a mountain, he deserves more than a biscuit. Snow Peak also made a cushion, collar, leash and leash anchor to help you elevate your dog’s outdoor experience.
