I carried a very small lightweight tent, just big enough for me and Desert Dog. He even had his own light, tiny sleeping bag, and his own pad to lay on. We had food for up to two weeks at a time, and the rest was just the regular backpacking gear but as ultralight as possible.

What's the best tent for backpacking with dogs? | Outside Online
Most dog breeds love to get outside for a hike, almost as much as they love treats. My dog instantly goes nuts when he sees my daypack or I start loading up my overnight pack. He loves exploring the trails of the Pacific Northwest and sleeping in our tent. If you have a new puppy or your dog hasn't spent much time hiking or backpacking, these are a few tips to make sure you both have an epic and safe day on the trail. Boone was a happy pup after our backpacking trip- he could howl at his heart’s content and he was free to swim and roam as much as he wanted. It’s a dog’s life in the backcountry and you start to see pretty instinctual behavior when dogs are free to be wild again!I chose the EUREKA MIDORI 2! While the price is unbeatable (under 200, tax included); I chose it because it's the most functional tent for backpacking with my 80 pound German Shepherd. Firstly, it only has one door & one vestibule. Most of the online reviews call this a significant drawback; but, for trekking with a dog, I only need 1 door. Next, the large vestibule - I love this feature. I love to keep my gear close (yes, food goes up at night, of course). And when it's raining, I eat in my tent; and the Midori 2's vestibule allows me to shelter my supplies out of the rain. The vestibule comes with a permanent short pole sewn in, so that the vestibule provides more storage space. Several reviews I've read have complained about this as it interferes with "stuffing" the tent into its bag, as opposed to rolling. I'm a roller, and I use an older pack with my tent sitting vertically along one side of my pack - so not an issue for me.Most of my backpacking is in the Kentucky area either in hoosier national forest or red river gorge, so I'm dealing with a ton of water all the time. My dog's still really young so I'd like to stay with a tent for awhile so if I'm close to people I can keep her inside. Occasionally my girlfriend will come along, so it'd be nice to have the extra room for her but it's not a necessity.
