Kennel Cover For Snow

Kennel cover for snow?
3, 4,5,6,7 or more trusses?
How many trusses should I have to withstand 3
or more inches of snow load?
I’m asked this quite frequently and my answer
that I haven’t a clue as there are too many variables.
Is your kennel site level?  Is the snow dry or a heaver wet snow?
Do you brush accumulated overnight snow off your kennel?
How strong is the wind?  Is your kennel securely anchored to the
ground or concrete pad?  Etc., etc., etc.

I really don’t know, but just like a house or any structure,
the more trusses, the more load it will bear.
I don’t know of any kennel cover that is guaranteed to withstand snow load.
All kennel covers or tarp covered structures always state they are not rated for
snow or heavy winds.
