5. Remember Camping Etiquette
Taking your dog camping can be a lot of fun, but it’s important to avoid negatively impacting other campers.
Along with picking up your dog’s waste, the easiest way to do this is by ensuring that your dog is leashed so he can’t wander into other camps. A long line is great for this, as it gives your dog freedom without letting him roam too far.
You could also buy a portable fence, such as those on this list, to keep your dog in a safe area. Never leave your dog unattended though – dangerous wildlife or weather conditions can appear at any time.
It’s also important to provide plenty of enrichment when you’re at the camp site. This reduces the chance of barking due to boredom.
Camping with your dog can be a wonderful experience, but it’s important to keep your pet safe. By being prepared for emergencies, monitoring your dog’s temperature, and protecting him on walks, you can minimise the risks.
Most importantly, remember to enjoy yourself! Nothing beats getting away from modern life and reconnecting with nature – and the experience is even more rewarding with your dog.
