Hiking and Camping With Your Dog
Hello Dear Colleagues;
Although I am a cat lover, must recognize that dogs are also fun companions.
Yesterday, I read an article related to tips to keep in mind when planning a hiking trip with our dog.
I thought it would be a good reminder to share.
Hiking is a great activity for you and your dog. It doesn’t have to be a long arduous journey into the mountains or the desert. A simple hike on a nature trail will provide good exercise for both of you.
There are saddlebag garments for dogs that can hold all of their equipment. You can put treats, leashes, water bowls and balls in the bag and keep your hands free and your backpack lighter. Don’t forget the doggie bags to pick up what they leave behind.

Traveling To New Territory
If you are going to new territory, a map is essential. Your backpack should have a map, compass, lunch, water and a small camera to catch special moments. On remote trails, your dog may decide that squirrel hunting is an additional benefit of a hike, so be prepared. Before going out into the wild, be sure your dog obeys simple commands such as come, stay, sit and down. It will be helpful when he gets rowdy.
Overnighting In The Wilderness
If you’re planning to turn your hike into an overnight camping trip, take along comfort items for your dogs. A blanket or easily foldable bed may be critical. There are doggie sleeping bags that fold up into a very compact package and are easy to transport.
Do Not forget to bring the proper attire and snacks/food for you!!
