3 Tips for Outdoor Portable Animal Shelters

Portable Animal ShelterPortable animal shelters are great when it comes to giving your animals a bit extra shade in the summer, or a place to get out of the rain while theyíre out grazing. But there are also a few things to keep in mind when it comes to keeping your portable animal shelter safe for your animals over time. Over time, your portable shelter will receive wear and tear from the elements and also, possibly, from your animals. Thatís why weíve included some helpful tips for anyone considering one of these shelters.

Inspect the shelter on a regular basis.

Shelters experience wear and tear over time. Thatís why itís important to inspect them on a regular basis. Take a look at the shelter and assess its structural integrity. Is it bowing at all? Are all the supports acting as they should? Are there any rips or tears in the fabric? By taking a closer look at the shelter, you can nip problems in the bud before they become worse. In addition, youíll help insure the safety of your animals.

Place the shelter in a suitable location.

When you first install your shelter, always make sure that itís in a suitable location. For example, you likely donít want to put your shelter beneath a lot of trees. Instead, put it in an area that doesnít have a lot of cover. That way thereís less chance of debris hitting it, and it also gives your animals an area to seek shelter during rain or other inclement conditions.

Get the shelter thatís appropriate to your needs.

If you just have one horse, youíre not going to need a shelter thatís the size for ten horses. Similarly, if you have 10 horses, youíre going to want to get a larger shelter. When youíre first looking at animal shelters, consider how many animals you have, and how much property you have to work with. Also consider what youíre using the shelter for in the first place

If you keep these tips in mind, youíll be able to use your animal shelter for years to come, and also have one thatís right for your animals. If youíre interested in one of our shelters, give us a call or check out what we have available on our website.
