March 11, 2010Canine Hardware Travel Dog Bed: Peacemaker?

I’m a total softie when it comes to my dogs, but we do have a few hard and fast rules. A biggie? Mingus and Dottie are not allowed to sleep with us in the bed. I spent a good portion of my youth being smothered and slobbered upon by our dear cocker spaniel at night, and many a sleepless night I vowed, “Never again.” Nevertheless, whenever we go camping, the dogs assume (Mingus especially) that the house rules no longer apply since, after all, we’re in a tent. So every night of every camping trip is spent furiously battling the dogs (especially Mingus) for a share of the air mattress.

Maybe if they had travel beds of their own, I could reclaim my sleeping bag? I like this travel bed from Canine Hardware. It’s made of durable ripstop nylon, is machine washable, and stuffs into its very own stuff sack.

Fetch it at REI.

    That is a good idea- I had to bring WAY too many dog blankets on our last camping trip.

    Oh I so need to take Prudence camping. That would be a hilarious experiment.

    I need to start training Morgan to sleep on the ground, but on cold nights it’s kind of nice. :P
