The Shade! The Shade of it all! Whether you’re throwing some shade or just trying to get your pooch out of the sun, the Shady Paws Portable Pet Shades have got you covered.

It’s not until you come to pet trade shows like SuperZoo that you see products that make you slap your forehead and say: “Why didn’t I think of that!” And I did just that when I saw the Shady Paws Portable Pet Shade.

Just like the name says, it’s shady and it’s portable, making it perfect for the beach, outdoor restaurants, camping, parks, barbeques, and much more. Shady Paws work just as well on the ground or on furniture, and can cover and size of pet. With its easy fold and go sun protection, the Shady Paws offers UPF 50++ removable canvas. As well, it comes with Velcro pockets for storage, a carry bag, sand spikes and recliner straps.

This is now on my must-have list – I need it for up on the roof top deck patio for Oscar. There’s a lot of sun and not too much shady, so Oscar doesn’t spend much time lounging with me outside. The Shady Paws would be ideal for condos because you could just fold it up and pack it away when it’s not needed!

You can pick one up for $98 at
