"tent" to be placed over an outdoor dog bed Answered

My dog's bed is on our patio.  If it rains outside and is windy, the bedding can get wet.  is there a man made tent to be placed over the bed for it to stay dry?

Burf, lemonie, and redesign all have good approaches.

One the "cheap", a ripstop tarpaulin could be easily tweaked into shape as a 3 sided tent or hut with a couple of internal supports made from 1x1 stock. For instance, if you were going camping, or if  this is a more temporary situation, or you don't have the skills to make a proper dog house or resources to buy a tent. A 6x8 ripstop tarp @ ~$5-10 will do the trick.

In fact, if you needed one this minute but had no ability to do any of the above but had a pair of trash bags you could rig up a nice dry area for the evening.

On the cheap, not one...

boy, it'd be nice if they'd introduce some form of edit outside cutting pasting deleting etc already..

Just build him a proper dog house.  You obviously care for him.  You can build a pretty simple dog house pretty easy.

Obviously, you need a "pup tent"

A child's tent or playhouse perhaps?
Horrible, stupid price, but you'll get the idea.
