Dog parks are great fun for both the owners and the dogs.  But many dog parks lack the shade needed to protect the animals from the heat.  July is the hottest month in Florida with temperatures average over 80 degrees and the humidity makes the heat that much more unbearable.  Dogs, although they love to outside need shade and fresh water to beat the heat, especially in the summer months. Dog parks and outdoor facilities for animals can use shade structures to help keep the dogs cool and safe from the heat.

What type of shade structures should be used for dog parks?

There are many options for dog parks and pet boarding facilities. Usually, a larger structure that can protect both the owner and the dog is best.  Our commercial shade sails are great for open or irregular spaces.   And do a great job of providing weather protection.  Our custom shade sails will protect from the sun and help reduce temperatures.

Shade Materials

The Commercial 95 – High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) fabric we use, can block up to 96% of harmful UV rays and reduce temperatures by up to 15 degrees under the shade. This will help your dog park or pet facility provide adequate shade and ensure your investment is built to last. The Commercial 95 is a professional-grade UV stabilized cloth used frequently to create fabric structures, awnings, sails and shade covers because it is both heavy duty and extremely durable.

How easy is it to install?

Florida can get extremely hot and humid in the summer, which puts unshaded dogs at risk for heat stroke and other related sun complications. It’s important your dog park or pet facility provides the shade needed and protects both the animals and owners when outdoors.
