Man’s best friend can also be man’s best camping companion. In order to keep everyone safe, happy and comfortable, this article provides a list of must-haves to bring when you go camping with dogs.
Travel and Leisure ~ “ No matter how much you enjoy camping, we’re willing to bet your fur baby loves it equally or more. And if you’re going to bring them along — and really, is that even a question? — you’ll need to do more than pack some food and load them in the car. Just like you, your pooch needs different gear for spending time out in the great outdoors.
Chances are, you’ll need to keep your pup leashed at all times, but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be able to explore the campsite. A long leash like this 36-foot tether will allow you to pitch your tent or hang with friends while your dog gets acquainted with the grounds.
At home, you and your pup likely stick to a familiar routine, with not a lot of new or unknown factors, but when you’re in the great outdoors, there are new animals and pests you’ll need to be wary of. Make sure your dog is up-to-date on their vaccinations, so you don’t have to worry about fleas, ticks, or diseases transmitted by wild animals.” ~ Travel and Leisure
