I always wanted to try a camping trip, take my husky, but I fear it will not meet the outdoor environment, and fear it will be bitten by a snake, I should pay attention to details, what kind of tent for us,thank you very much

It has been my experience that dogs do very well camping. As to snake bite dogs very rarely get bitten, as is true of humans, and when they do vets can deal with it the same as humans. I am sure there have been dogs that have died from snakebite but I have never heard of any. Dogs seem to really enjoy the out doors and I would strongly encourage you to share nature with your Husky. One thing I'd like to share is I have ridden off road for forty years starting with dirt bikes, then switching to ATV's and now side by sides, always in areas where rattle snakes are common and I have never seen one!

I had a dog die from a Mojave rattlesnake a few yrs ago. It was a small Chihuahua. It went quick but I have dogs here and a lot of rattlesnakes of many kinds and mostly the snakes are timid and the dogs run at the sound of a buzzing snake. You can get your dog "snake trained" too which is successful more often than not. I would recommend a cheap dome tent at first as they pack easy and go up easy. Where you camp has a lot to do with what kind or the sleeping bag you get. If it's a cold environment the dog will keep you warm.
