    A dog tent designed by Raiffnuke

    and built by lilprincess and nighthauk.

    Nighthauk will post a video/slideshow of how it went, but for now, know that it was a learning experience and I"m sure it isn't done teaching us.

    Am I seeing that right and the dog's leash is passed through the top of the tent to attach to your suspension? that's pretty clever!

    Looks great!

    Do you have any pictures of it packed down? Is it something a larger dog could carry in it's own pack?

    That's a fantastic idea. Are you planning on bringing it to the next group hang?

    Nice looking tent. I bet Jackson will stay nice and warm in there.

    Here is a better view of the plans…

    I wonder if it was a coincidence that this thread was started on the day the forum name was changed to Tent Talk?

    Excelent!

    Excellent! I've been working on the same model for a few months now. I've gone back and forth between making it out of Tyvek and Rip Stop Nylon, and a combination of both. Tyvek for the floor and RS nylon for the rest of the tent. I purchased a Tyvek which offers better breath ability, but it's a little heavier. Here's a few pictures of the small model I made to get an idea of what I'm going to make. (The model sucks, but I just wanted to get an idea) (Also, the green in the picture is RS nylon & the white would be Tyvek)

    I've tried a few other models as well, but haven't decided on which one to go with as of now.

    I look forward to seeing the final results of yours.

    That's EXACTLY what I've been trying to think up for my pup. He likes to play in the mud but sleep in the clouds, dog is a serious nancy about having a cushy bed, and he doesn't have a thick coat. You could probably make an insulative lining for colder weather. Like a fleece or something. Raffinuke does great stuff.
