Topic - Creating sleeping bags for camping dogs

Tall Clare - on 18 Nov 2013
Hello all,

We've only camped with our dog in summer so far, but we'd like to take her camping during the colder months. We're not talking anything extreme, just UK winter camping.

She's a smoothhaired pointer and she's a bit of a princess - at the moment she's sleeping inside her bed (inside the cover of a big 'cushion' bed), and given half a chance she'll sleep under a duvet rather than on top of it. With this in mind, I want to hack up an old synthetic cotton-lined sleeping bag for her. Normal sleeping bags are long and thin, despite her propensity for sleeping nose-first under covers, she does still need to breathe.

Has anyone successfully hacked a sleeping bag for their dog? If so, what shape did you go for and did your dog stay warm and happy in it?

(Mods: I hope this is the right section - it *is* gear, just not for people!)
