    I thought of that, but then, it would be lighter to just make a bug net tent. The problem with my dog is that she wants to look at everything and stay up all night. So, having something that she has to stay put and block what she sees is the main issue I'm having.

    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.

    The plans

    The Dog

    The tent
    Wow, your dog could be a sibling to mine...if we were closer. Got a Sheltie Lab mix that looks identical your great pup. Enjoy the dog tent.

    One other thought. Does it have to be a rigid top? Why not 4 channels to be staked out coming to a point(teepee style) at the top to be tied up? The stakes would maintain the base shape.

    disclaimer - I am more of a car camper - withthe family, love the hammock for comfort and have just started reading here so my ideas may be completely worthless.

    I love this, although mine would never sleep without being in the hammock with me. This is just great for those with bigger dogs. I also like the idea of a long leash coming up and attaching to the suspension so that they can't wonder off at night or run loose...yet they can go in and out of their tent as they want.

    collapsible crate

    Muffin sleeps in her collapsible crate right under and to the side of my hammock, under my tarp if we need one. If there is thunder, she wants up in the hammock with me. That is okay as well if she is dry. If it is very cold, she helps as efficiently as a bottle of hot water, so I ask her to stay up in with me. She is willing.

    A dog tent designed by Raiffnuke

    Hey guys I just wanted to let you know that I finally posted up the video of the creation and design of the doggie tent. Because this is a prototype feel free to help with design elements and reconstruction for another time. Other than that enjoy the video. I posted it up as a new thread under DIY doggie tent.

    Hi Nighthauk,

    Did you have a link to the video? I went to your YouTube page but didn't see anything.

    Thanks

    One thing. I accidentally erased it trying to post up a video that is widely accepted for all devices. I should have one up shortly. Working on it as I type this. Please be patient. Thanks.

    No problem. I though I was missing it somewhere, or my Firefox browser was messing up again. Looking forward to seeing it.
