Every dog owner needs this lounger that lets your pet chill out in the shade

All dog owners will know that if you’re outside soaking up the sun on a nice day, your dog will want to be right by your side.

But while you’ve got a big old parasol or, at the very least, a cap, to shade your eyes – what’s a pup to do?

Aldi is here to help, with a dog bed designed for this exact scenario.

The Pet Collection Sunshade Dog Bed has a comfy seat for your pet to hop up on, and a waterproof and UV50 canopy to provide the shade they need.

And bonus: It’s only £19.99.

It’s super easy to assemble, just requiring you to pop together two long bars, two short bars, four legs, and six fiberglass poles – a bit like putting up a tiny tent – and adding on the sling and canopy.

And there’s a carry bag included, for easy transport to picnics, parks, or the beach.

The raised sling means your pet won’t scorch his tummy or feet on the ground when it’s a really hot day, while the shade will help to prevent heatstroke and sunburn (because yes, dogs can indeed get sunburnt, too).

Also, a note: while Aldi calls this a dog bed, we think it’d be great for cats, too.

One four-star review offers a handy tip to up the comfort stakes, reading: ‘I bought this for my elderly dog who was no longer comfortable with a bed on the floor.

‘I added a memory foam mattress and had a happy, comfy dog. It easily comes apart for travel too.’
