For those who enjoy bringing your dog on the trail - hiking, camping, backpacking - consider bringing a dog sleeping bag for you pooch if you are cold weather camping or backpacking through a region that is known for its cold climate.
Believe it or not, even though dogs have fur, most dogs breed are not equipped to rough-it in cold weather. Even breeds such as malamutes and huskies can benefit from a dog sleeping bag and prevent frostbite, etc. Most of you have seen my posts on gear for dogs from www.ruffwear.com/dog_coats (they offer coats for all weather and offer a selection of beds, etc.), but check out these sleeping bags that are designed for dogs:
