    My DS set up our big 3 compartment tent in the front yard and has been sleeping in it.

    well this morning I caught my DD's dog chewing on one side of the tent. Dang dog tore it.

    It is a Northcrest Outdoor.

    Can it be sewn to be repaired?

    I cannot find my camera or I would take a picture and post it.

    Dog is still alive for the moment. Going to her some chew bones.

    Without a picture I'd say yes. I've repaired our tent before. If a simple sew up wont do it just get some good nylon fabric and patch it. Remember it's for camping so function is more important than pretty.

    How big of a tear? I bet it can be repaired.Maybe a strong patch or something. My DH German Shepherd puppy ate my Tommy Hilfiger comforter! [​IMG] I constantly pull my retired Fiestaware outta the coop and run [​IMG] I've come to the conclusion that I can't have anything! [​IMG]

    Without seeing the tear, I would have to say repairable.
    Just sew it up or add a patch if needed.

    We used to sew the tarps back up on our flatbed trailers. Been out
    flatbedding for a while, I don't remember the thread we used offhand.
    Check with you local automobile uphostler shop, or a furniture repair
    place. Thye both should have quality thread.

    Yep, double fold the seams and seal with rubber cement or RTV silicone. Make sure the repair material is waterproof just like the tent material.

    Or send it down to a tarp repairman, or someone from a camper sales. They might know of someone who can do repairs.

    Totally easy fix. Pin it and sew it back up.
