About

Video summary: How to fold your WoofShade.

I needed one myself

The WOOFSHADE® was created out of a need to spend hours of paddling time without the worry of the pooch getting heat stroke or just being uncomfortable in the blazing sun. It's Harley, my Shih-tzu, who inadvertently gave me the idea of creating a shade just for him.

WOOFSHADE Specs:
5-point grommets with shock cords and locks

Break-proof internal wire system

Coverage: 9.6 square feet

Diameter: 39"

Folded to approx. 17"x13"

1 lb 3.5 oz

    Kayaking + Harley + water + outdoors + nature = Happiness. That pretty much sums it up for me.

Frequently asked questions
Can I return my item?

While we do not accept returns for sales to the US and Canada, we will do so for EU (European Union) buyers due to the "distance selling laws." In so doing, EU buyers "have the right to return certain products for any reason by contacting the seller within 14 days." This means, the EU buyer must contact our company within 14 days of receiving the item. Please note that the buyer is responsible for assuming all shipping charges. In the event of a return, buyer's shipping charge will not be refunded. All returns must be via trackable and insured methods.

US and Canada: We do not accept returns unless it is for an exchange or we made an error with the order.

Does the WOOFSHADE come in a large size?

We currently only have one size: a small/regular. Whether the WoofShade will be large enough to cover your dog will largely depend on the type of paddle boat you have.

Does the WOOFSHADE™ fit any paddle boat?

Yes. If your boat has grab hooks, SlideTrax, and/or accessory strap eyes, the WOOFSHADE will easily attach to all kayaks, canoes, and SUPs. Some boats come with numerous hooks while others have have few. You can purchase additional hooks and strap eyes (adhesive or to be drilled in) from your paddle boat dealer. Note that the height of the WOOFSHADE will fluctuate based on the width and depth of the paddle boat.

Can the WOOFSHADE fit only one way?

The WOOFSHADE is very versatile. It can be secured up to five points depending on the vessel configuration and points of attachment. It can also be placed further up on the bow or closer to the paddler. You can also decide how much coverage you want for the dog by tilting the shade and by tightening or shortening the shock cords. If your boat is wide, you may wish to add some D rings (adhesive or drilled in) to narrow the opening and thereby heightening the shade.

How tall is the shade?

It depends. The diameter is 39" (it is round). How tall it is will be dependent on your type and model of paddle boat. A sit-in kayak or a canoe will give your dog more head room than a sit-on-top or a SUP. If it's wider, then the shade will sit lower. For example, a Wilderness System Tarpon 120 sit-on-top kayak, placing the WoofShade at 20" wide, you will get approximately 15" in height; at 22" wide, you get about 13" in height.

Will the WOOFSHADE color fade?

No. The fabric is a special marine-grade material (Phyfertex®) that is made to withstand the harsh conditions from sun and water. It is mold, mildew and fade resistant, and lead-free. Manufacturer 3-year warranty.

Do we ship to Canada?

Yes! Please allow up to 2 weeks for delivery once shipped (this is how long USPS may take).

How do I attach the shade to my boat?

Because of the various types of D-rings, hooks, and attachment points on various boats, we do not include the S hooks that we use. If your boat lacks attachment points or a rail system, please check with your local paddle sports store for universal attachment options.
See video in the About section.

Why so few reviews and sales?

We've consolidated our sales channel to just Etsy since April 2019. Thus, all of our sales and reviews are not showing up on Etsy. Here are some reviews we've received from our other former site:

"He really enjoyed the WoofShade as he didn’t get overheated at all...but was still able to have airflow and see all around."— Vicki H.

"Your product gave us so many more opportunities to kayak for when we travel with our dog." — V.H.

"The shade protected them but also allowed them to feel the breeze and to see the surroundings."— Helen L.

"It was very easy to connect to my kayak and fold up and store in its pouch."— H. L.

Is UV rated?

No. The material does not provide UV protection. However, it blocks out about 65% of the sun. Photo of such is in the listings.
