The side sleeping is no biggy. I do it all the time in my Hennesey
but the dog is another question. I also have a dog I hike with quite
often (she's about 35lbs) and I have yet to try her in the hammock.
I think her nails would damage the fabric and I don't think either of
us would sleep too well. She likes to sleep at my feet in the bottom
of my bag but in the hammock I do not use a bag and my feet are
somewhat elevated. We had a little discussion about options for dogs
under the hammock a month or so ago. You might want to check past
messages for that.
Good luck, if you find a solution let us know.
