Camping with Pets
It's that exciting time of year where the sun is out, the grass is green and the wild calls to us. We want to be outside and we want to bring our best furry friends with us! Here's some things to keep in mind for a super fun, pet-friendly camping trip.
Invest in a doggie first aid kit. With rocks, sticks, thistles, uneven terrain and other little things out in nature, minor injuries can happen and things that would be no big deal back home might cause slightly larger problems out in the woods. Having something to clean and protect small cuts and scrapes can be super important. Tweezers can help remove thorns, burrs and other debris from coats and between toes. Don't have a doggie First Aid Kit? You're in luck! BowDog will soon be carrying a perfect travel-size kit. All proceeds will be going to the Four Feet Companion Foundation.
Put Food Away
Pet food is very attractive to our wild friends. Just like you would safely store all your own food, don't forget to stash your pet's food securely away when not in use. Dog food is fragrant and can attract all sorts of visitors which can be dangerous for you and your pet as well as disruptive and dangerous for the wildlife attracted by it. Keep pet food in sealed containers and in a vehicle when not in use.
Speaking of wildlife, just like on a hike, it's important to keep your pet securely attached to a leash or lead. Not only does this keep them safe from wandering off and finding friends who are maybe not the best choices, it allows you to keep control around things like fire pits. It is also courtesy to your fellow campers who may not be comfortable around dogs or may have dogs of their own with their own personalities and comfort levels.
Have Plenty of Water
When your pup is thirsty, they'll drink from pretty much any water source they can find. When out camping, that can sometimes mean stagnant water that may upset their stomachs. Keep water on hand for them to help discourage their seeking out different solutions.
Camping with pets can be a lot of fun, you just need to be prepared. We hope that these tips help. Remember to keep safe out there and have fun!

Hurley advises conducting a test camping trip if you have access to a backyard. That's right, before you take the show on the road, spend the evening in your backyard with your pet beneath the stars. According to Hurley, if your pet exhibits indications of stress in that situation, they probably won't react well in a setting that is much stranger. In addition, your dog's sound sensitivity to things like thunderstorms or unexpected loud noises, overall anxiety, or flight risk are other items to take into account.
