    VIDEO: DIY Doggie tent

    Hey guys I finally got off of my butt and got some ambition to edit a video on the construction of a doggie tent that Lil Princess had shown in another Thread talking about how we made a tent for our dog that hangs off of the hammock suspension. Take a look and let me know if you have any questions.

    One idea I had after taking it out was to have four adjustable points from the corners of the top. Being in a hammock, even ground isn't a priority to me, but in order for the dog tent to be tight on all sides the tent must be placed directly centered underneath the ridge line, and on perfectly even ground. Being able to tighten one corner would be a huge benefit.
    Chase your dreams without fear or hesitation!

    yeah for some reason the formatting which I thought was the same one I use all the time won't allow mobile devices to watch. I will upload a better version later.


    After having changed the formatting 3 times I am giving up on the mobile version. Sorry!!!

    Looks great!

    I agree that ditching the door was a good idea. You can always position it to dodge the wind and I'm sure your pup appreciates the extra air flow.

    Have you tried putting in a pad sleeve on the bottom?
    How is the inside fit when your pup is in there? Do you think a pull out would help or is it not necessary?

    Again, awesome job.

    Fronkey thanks for the feedback. As to the pad sleeve Lilprincess did something similar with making a sleeve out of fleece and putting a blue ccf pad in there. As to the pullout it is not needed. He has lots of room lying down to relax. Again thanks for watching.
