The official end to summer has come and gone and now we get ready for the fall. For many of us that means the return to the outdoors with our pets and our dogs. We get to take Fido on longer walks, explore new parks and even go camping. The fall is a gorgeous time of the year to enjoy exploring with our favorite 4-legged friend(s).
If you are interested in hiking and/or camping with your dog, then we have found the PERFECT resource to help you on this journey. Please review this great article below from our friends at Outside How:
Tips for Camping With Dogs-
So, your dog has talked to you about joining you next time you head out on a camping adventure. You love exploring the outdoors, camping, and hiking. You also love bringing your dog along for the ride wherever you go. Maybe you have fond memories of camping with your family as a kid, when the dog came along. It’s time to plan your next outdoor adventure with your faithful companion.
Camping with your dog, whether it’s just the two of you or the whole family, can be a lot of fun for everyone. These are some helpful (and important) tips about camping with dogs for the canine camping champs and the newbies alike.
Why Camping With Dogs Is So Much Fun
Leaving your dog with a sitter or at the kennel while you go on vacation is easier, but it has its drawbacks. Your dog misses you and you worry about them. If you go on trips a lot, it doesn’t feel right leaving them behind. You also miss out on sharing adventures and creating new memories with your dog.
Every dog parent knows the joy of watching the excitement as you pack, ride in the car, and arrive somewhere with the new smells and sights. It’s a big part of why we have dogs—sharing enjoyment of the simple and good things in life.
If you want to go camping and can’t find anyone who wants to go, your dog will be a grateful and enthusiastic companion. If it’s a family trip, bringing the dog adds enjoyment for the kids, making it a better trip overall. Sleeping next to your canine under the stars in the wilderness can also bring an extra peace of mind.
Adventuring in the great outdoors with your pooch is a great way to strengthen your bond, get fresh air and exercise, have fun, and de-stress.
