Camping with dogs/cold nights

We are planning a trip to the Grand Canyon in the spring and we're thinking about camping...

Problem is desert nights are pretty cold at high elevations, the time of year we want to go the lows at night average in the 30's. I'm not sure if I am comfortable with that lol but my main concern is for my dog. He will be around 8/9 months old when we go... Do you think this is too cold, if not is there a good way to make sure he stays warm?

I was going to bring his bed(he will be in the tent with us) and put some foam padding under it to raise it off the ground along with maybe having him wear a fleece jacket and blanket... Possibly hot water bottles too.

Any input?
