Best Small Tents For Camping With Dogs

Large, spacious tents usually have all the room a dog lover could want to make their canine friend feel at home – but smaller backpacking tents with enough space for a dog are harder to come by. Here are our top tents for when you’re keeping it lightweight while camping but still want to bring your dog along.

Hubba Hubba NX 2

Precision-engineered for low weight and maximum stability, the Hubba Hubba NX 2 has long been a favourite of backpackers trekking around the world. This three-season dome tent has not one, but two vestibules, measuring 2.13m x 0.76m, so there’s plenty of space for your four-legged friend and your kit, too.

Vango Helvellyn 300

Designed to sleep 3 people, the Helvellyn is a spacious choice for one or two people with a dog in tow. A 2mx 1.05m vestibule gives plenty of space for a dog to sleep, and its semi-geodesic, self-supporting design offers excellent stability and easy pitching to get you enjoying the outdoors quicker.

Vango Scafell 300+

Featuring a 1.9m x 1.8m vestibule and a large gear storage area in addition to a spacious main area, the Scafell 300+ offers plenty of room of muddy paws and kit for up to 3 people and a dog, too. Two entrances mean muddy paws can easily be kept separate from the main part of the tent, and extra head height and easy pitching make it a great all-rounder for weekend campers.
