KyJen Collapsible Pet Tent Giveaway and Review



I love pets, but sometimes they drive me absolutely mad, and, much like kids, I get especially suspicious when the house is quite and I cannot see said pet. I've walked into such horrors as 1000s of dollars in Berber carpeting torn up, vintage boots in shreds and missing fish with suspicious kitty. Humans have electronics such as video games, iPads, computers, television and more to occupy their time- imagine how hard it can be to find suitable entertainment as a dog! Playing with and engaging your pet is much more than a method for the owner to recreate, it's essential to fostering an educational and positive environment that keeps them active, healthy, and happy!



KyJen was conceived in 1992 with a mission to "keep dogs active and engaged". This includes an exclusive line of in house brands to feed, clothe, and interact with your four legged friend- from raincoats and booties to Squeak Mats and tug toys. The KyJen team is always sure to bring their best friends to work for rigorous 'testing' and in depth 'reviews' that ensure their products meet Fido's each and every need. While you'll always find a wide array of seasonal merchandise to outfit your pooch, Kyjen is much more than a gimmick- they're creative solutions and innovations for the modern dog and owner. Innovations such as Soft Puzzle Plush toys with removable squeakers to ensure safe supervised and continuous play that extends the life of the toy and your dog's fun. You'll also find a complete line of eco-friendly pet solutions and even an automotive booster seat to keep any pooch safe while rolling in style!



I was excited to receive a KyJen Hibiscus Mobile Home and Collapsible Crate for review here on Momma Told Me. Right away I was pleased with the price, 54.99, having seen comparable versions at our local big brand pet store run $20+ more. However, I did wish there was more of a selection in shades/prints (for example the Hibiscus in Blue, or Solid color designs). The 'tent' arrives flat, and does indeed pop up, via fed zippers, with little to no fuss or effort. We didn't even read the instructions until we had finished, to ensure we hadn't missed anything. The crate itself is made from a water resistant Nylon material that also allows for airflow through the many mesh 'windows'. When zipped up entirely the pet can still see out, clearly through the windows and front, but is completely contained. This is great for training, beach/camping trips, family outings, or even a backyard lounge.

Each of the windows features a tie up screen, for privacy, or nap time, that adds to the adorable mini-tent appeal. Included with this crate are 4 small 'stakes' to fasten the tent in grass or dirt when outdoors, as well as rubberized feet for grip on concrete and hardwood floors. Kyjen also considers comfort with the included, easy wash, fleece pad that loosely fastens in place with velcro patched. This has become our resident dachshund's new hide away home, and she simply loves lounging inside on warm days, or keeping vigilante watch at her sister's bedside at night. We love how easy the Hibiscus Mobile Home is to clean, and even more how easy it is to pop down and store on road trips or for entertaining.
