    I use a converted dog run as a coop, but I do not think it will be much help to you...I live in Texas...what the heck is snow?

    My dog run just has hardware cloth stretched over it, and a sheet of corugated metal at the back half as a rain shield.

    I'd be interested also. We have two 10x10 dog runs hooked together to make one 200 sq foot run.

    Quote:I grew up in Texas. Snow is that slushy stuff that turns into ice immediately and makes your car into an ice sculpture and all the roads into one big slide... At least that's what it was like in North Texas!

    Anyone got some pics? (of roofed dog runs, not a Texas ice storm..)

    Just trying to give your post a boost...Im kinda interested in roofing solutions for dog runs...and how serious a roof has to be to be snow proof...Exactly HOW snow proof are you looking for? Feet or inches?

    Luvmy33chicks, do the tarps keep the snow out pretty well?

    I'm in NW Washington. We are near the coast so about a foot would be a lot for us but not impossible...

    we havent had any snow yet but i had this set up with the last heavy wind and rain storm and it was perfectly dry under there
    i had to put straw down because of flooding but with the tarps angled no water collects on top and the snow should slide off
