Nice setup. Unfortunately, this would contain our pups. They use to figure out how to unzip our tent as a matter of fact. If a squirrel or other animal got their attention they would just take the tent with them.

Good idea as your dogs are safer. Thinking of doing the same.

My two dogs are 75 and 85 lbs. I'm interested in something to contain them other than their current chain or cable tie outs. I got injured on my leg pretty badly last Fall when one of the dogs saw a dog walking by, got excited and wrapped the chain tightly around my leg as I was unfortunately nearby.

We use 2 of these as a single pen for 4 dogs:

They fold flat and fit in the back of the truck just fine. The panel connecting pins can be driven into the ground unless we're camped on bedrock. The panels can be configured in any shape to suit the available space.

I use 4 of the 24 inch tall folding exercise pens put together. And when I go to Nascar I will buy 4 rolls of sod to put down for my 3 dogs. You can get the pens in 3 foot and 4 foot at petsmart or petco or ant pat store or on line. I have never had a rv park ever say I could not have the pens out to control my dogs.

This was my set up when I had a popup. Have upgraded to a small TT and upgraded the fence but you get the idea. reinforced with 4 ft rebar. This contained my to 100+ lb Swissys.

I use 8 sections 2 x 3 fencing I got at TSC, cheaper than pet store, actually caught it on sale. They have the 4 foot high panels as well.

Did see at one of the pet stores the same set up with a canopy cover. Made a 4 x 4 covered pen.

Camping hounds

We camp with 2 greyhounds and use 3 36" tall x-pens as a fence around the front of our camper. We use plastic lattice to block the space under the trailer and have never had any problems with the dogs trying to go over the fence...they could if they wanted to but are never left outside unless we are with them. The fact that we fence the whole space means that when we open the door they are contained.

We use 3 to 4 ex pens clipped together. You can get them in various heights. Cherrybrook, a dog show supplier has them on their website. It's the only way you can let pups play when you have multiple especially at shows. If u don't want them digging you can put down the weatherproof carpet.

We use an 36" tall, 8 panel pen. Our dogs are very low energy, calm and well mannered. They are content to be outside with us and to just watch people go by and don't ever jump up or try to escape. (Chuck, the Bull Mastiff could easily topple it if he wanted to!)
It has worked out very well in both campgrounds as well as dry camping. One of us is always outside with them and if not in the pen, they are in the trailer or on leash. We have never had any complaints from campground hosts or other campers.
It folds flat and stows easily under the bed.
