I'm thinking about making a bug net with a tent type floor that lays on the ground under my hammock and ties out in the corners, and inventing some sort of permethrin treated doggie flap he can go in and out of.
Him being an Aussie, as he grows his undercoat will adjust itself to the Alabama climate and he should thin out a decent amount, so heat shouldn't be a huge issue as long as I take him hiking around water. I don't hike in real hot weather anyway. But I will kayak camp in a heart beat. He'll fit great in front of me in my Pungo!
I really think a ground option is best for dogs. Maybe a suspended to the ground screen they can get under and back out of or something.. I'll figure it out. With a hammock near or under mine I could see my buddy getting in and out, and moving around all night and disturbing my peaceful sleep. If I wanted disturbed sleep I'd still be on the ground lol.
A Small tarped hammock of his own just might be workable though.... I dunno lol.
