    Unfortunately I can't take my dog because of his motion sickness on long trips but I doubt I could wrestle a 55lb Husky into a Clark hammock anyway. Missouri don't get cold enough to give him any issues with temps and he prefers to sleep in the grass the few times we were out locally with a tent. He does hate rain with a passion though so I'd imagine a pad and light tarp would be just fine for him.

    Man if you could get him into a hammock that would be a hell of a heating and insulation system. He nearly smothers me to death if he hops on the bed at night and just lays near me.

    Hammock Camping With A Dog

    For smaller dogs, putting them in the hammock with you works fine as long as they're dry and somewhat clean.

    That's one reason for making the Hammock Hut.



    With the doors closed and sealed the dog can be inside out of the weather too.

    Regards,

    Dogs in hammocks depends on the hammock and the dog.

    Crazy J the 70+ lb. German wirehaired pointer used to get into the Crazy Creek LEX crib with me and sit tight all night. But one time a claw caught the bug net when he jumped out which made a rip.

    There's no way he's allowed into Hennessy UL Backpacker since it's small and entrance is through the bottom slit. He likes to stick his head up in the bottom slit, then gets excited, starts barking and wants to climb in but it's too small. He'd jump back out as soon as he climbed in anyway.

    He climbs up on the ENO Doublenest which is rated to 400 lbs. He didn't trust the swing of the hammock at first back in July.



    For the first time in the ENO Doublenest at night, last weekend, he slept with me under my knees for a few hours in the almost-temperate rainforest near Mt Baker but got down after a few hours. He retreated to his bed below made of a Ridgerest section and fleece blankets over a groundsheet. (photo from a different trip)



    Maybe he was too warm? He did sink to the bottom. Worst of all, his weight messed up the asymmetric lay which allows the hammock to lay flat. We had a banana-shaped hammock when he was in it but flat when he was out; Sad to say.

    The biggest challenge is having a wet dog in a hammock with you. I usually use a down bag which should stay far away from a wet dog. But being a fairweather camper this is rarely an issue. Trying to reconcile a wet dog in a hammock on a long distance hike is probably impossible. The dog would have to stay on the ground if it were already wet.

    Hi, everybody!

    My dog, despite having her own nifty homemade pad that she loves, insists on crawling under the quilt with me when we camp (tarp or tent) so it will be interesting to see what kind of fuss she makes w/ me in a hammock.

    Now that is cool! I did make a few paper models of puptents but didn't come up with that. Hmmmm.

    I'll do the intro thing in another post.

    Dante, our mini-pin, got the chance to come out with my son and I on his Wilderness Survival camp. Temp dropped to 36. Son earned his Survival badge sleeping in his tarp over tri-pod, but not Dante. He wanted nothing of it. He headed for the hammock with me.

    Boy does that little dog put out some heat in a mummy bag! Reflector pad, thermorest and 20+ bag, tarp in storm shelter mode, no under or over quilt. Had to leave the bag half open from how warm we were together.

    Can't imagine anything larger than his 13#'s though. THings would get pretty snug.

    Gus = Foot Warmer

    I have a now old Jack Russell and he loves the footbox in my sleeping bag. I wouldn't trade this little heater for any high tech piece of gear. There's some advantages to big dogs in small packages
