I have searched the forums for a successful way to backpack and hammock hang with a dog. I realize that the dog's personality dictates what will ultimately work. This 1 year old, 40 lb mutt is a great little trail dog, but is the type that would not be happy unless she was in close proximity to me at night (she's spoiled and alert to night noises). Options include using my gear hammock for her, tying a lead through the Hennessey opening, or a portable kennel as suggested by Nogods in a previous thread.
I need to do some short solo trips in the spring and would like to have her company, but I really don't want to return to being a ground dweller just for the dog. Has anyone found an option that works?
