Gear: Robens tent

Robens tents’ Green Castle is our go to tent for camping with our dog Merci the husky. The flooring is not attached on the bottom and makes for a great environment for her to be in if she does not want to be in our section of the tent.

The flooring can be easily washed from her dirty feet which is a difficult feature to find when looking for a tent. We love that the Green Castle tent can be manipulated into different sections to separate our gear from our sleeping area. The setup is easy just slide the 4 rods into the tent and hammer the stakes into the ground! This tent is 100% Merci the husky approved!
