I tried letting our 9 yr. old Border collie sleep in the tent with me but he squirms too much, sheds too much, & hears & sees everything. I leave him outside for self-protection. He has never wandered off to chase anything, & has let us know in the past when any kind of critters sneak up on our campsite. Great dog!

My dogs usually sleep in the vestibule with my pack and sandals. That way they are under cover for the night but not steaming up my tent. It gets moist very easily with just two humans sleeping inside unless there is a good wind. The downside of this is when getting in the sandals and making a night time excursion I usually step on/trip over something furry. In a SHTF scenario I hope I have a decent enough shelter for everyone or at least eventually a nice doggie version next door.Perfer et obdura; dolor hic tibi proderit olim.

Have to let the dogs sleep in the tent. The shepherd (Maya) by the door as primary watch dog. The little pompoo in the sleeping bag with one of us and the new baby pekapom in the other sleeping bag. They are all announcers. Tough for anyone to try to sneak up. LOL I know...two little dogs? LOL training them with Kung Fu Puppy kit.
