    A space for the dog...

    Hiya!

    I have always just camped with a tent, but I want to get mysef a tarp and (maybe) a hammock now. However, I got a dog and I wouldnt know if he would be ok with sleeping on the floor while I dangle above him in the hammock. I think I wouldnt like that either. Have any of you got experience with this? Is there a solution?

    What about sleeping on the floor with the dog? Are there special mats you would recommend?

    Thanks a lot!!
    Jana

    A good question, I have taken my dog when I have had a tent but never when I hammock for the same reason as you have said above. I have seen some people take the dog into the hammock with them. Suppose it depends on how big you dog is.

    Yes, I thought about taking him in as well. Hes still only 6 months at the moment but he will be a big black lab who loves swimming. So I dont really want him next to me all wet and taking all the space

    Hmm, something to think about!

    The dog sleeps underneath. If your worried about your friend wandering, just tie him/her to the tree. They soon learn.

    What he said!
    When life gets you down...Hammock!
    It's amazing how far away the world can feel when you're suspended just two foot off the ground!
