    My SAR K9 comes with me just about everywhere. I use the Pet Palace and the Ruffwear Highlands sleeping bag system. That way he can sleep on the ground below me or cause hes only 50 lbs he can sleep with me

    You could use a closed cell pad, cutting down a sleeping pad or yoga mat to the appropriate size.

    I simply use a home made windbreak that is similar to the Dutch pup tent but only closed on three sides. It’s enough to provide a complete windbreak if pitched properly. I also bring along a cut down to size CCF pad to provide him insulation from the ground.

    Depends on the dog: I've got a a Samoyed, so cold's not much of an issue for her. Heck, my 1st one would refuse to come inside at night in sub-zero temps and blowing snow. I give her a cut-off section of foam pad to lay on but she's not much interested in using it. The bigger problem is her getting riled up by night time noises like coyotes. She's been getting better with experience but this one's still a pup. I do like hiking with a dog though: they're great company.

    Just my opinion but I would not use an inflatable pad unless it is high quality so the nails won't hurt it and it has to be insulated. Blow up pads have no R rating to keep the pup warm.

    I was thinking of going with some of that flat synthetic insulation between two sheets of fabric. I'm leaning towards the pup-tent and modifying it with the insulation on the walls and floor where it will still compress down to a reasonable size.

    My girl Maggie, is 60 lbs. of Shepard/Beagle mix and she sleeps with me in the hammock (Dutch Chameleon). She's never damaged the hammock. I've got a 15degree 900 fill down top quilt and a 20 degree 800(?) fill down under quilt. We stay almost too warm.

    Here's Maggie

    To maybe give you a better idea of her size... This is a picture we took on the AT in 2018.

    Good looking dog! That is about the size of my Roo Roo, so maybe I will give it a try when I get another hammock. My current hammock is a Clark and I just can't risk it now that they are gone. Do you do anything special with the nails? Does your dog pretty much just lay and stay or does it like to move around like mine does?

    When he was still with us, we took our black German Shepherd dog with us on summer trips in the Adirondacks. He was crate trained; we used a cheapo kid's tent (poly tarp bathtub, shock-corded poles) as his crate away from the crate. It was heavy (4 lbs), but worth it for the continuity of routine. As a bonus, he stayed cozy, dry, and comfortable while we slept in lean-tos (pre-hammock days). We haven't camped with the next gen pups: they're cray cray.
