Summertime is an excellent excuse to go on a camping trip and enjoy the beauty of the great outdoors. If you have a pet dog, taking him on a camping trip can also be a way to spend some quality time together, and ensure that he enjoys the adventure, too. Dogs make great camping companions, but it can help to know how to keep your dog healthy and happy on a camping trip. That way, you can ensure everyone avoids any health or safety hazards and has an excellent excursion.

Follow these tips when camping with your dogs:

 

Health and Safety Tips for Camping With Your Dogs 2Go to a Dog-Friendly Campsite

If you’re going to a public campsite to camp, it’s important for you to choose a site that’s dog-friendly.

Do your research before you go so you make sure you end up somewhere that’s accommodating to your pup. You don’t want to show up at a campsite, only to find out that Fido can’t come in, too.

 

Health and Safety Tips for Camping With Your Dogs 5Bring Portable Bowls

When you’re away camping, you should still make sure you to feed your dog on the same schedule as before, and to ensure that he stays properly hydrated. Bring portable dog food and water bowls that can be collapsed and easily carried in a bag. That way, you can enjoy a lighter load than if you were bringing their regular bowls, and you can ensure that your dog will easily get enough to eat and drink.

 

Health and Safety Tips for Camping With Your Dogs 3Bring Along Poop Bags

Just because you’re out in nature doesn’t mean you shouldn’t pick up after your dog. Bring along poop bags when you go on your camping trip. This will allow you to pick up your dog’s poop and keep the trails and camping areas clean for everyone around you.

 

Bring a Doggy First Aid Kit

When you head out on a camping trip with your dog, make sure you bring a first aid kit with anything your dog could need in case of emergency. This means that you should bring a blanket, tweezers or pliers in case your dog gets anything in his paws or skin, the name of an emergency vet nearby, a stake and leash (and collar), and more. Do some research online about the safety risks where you’re camping, then bring tools and remedies to help combat any of those risks.

 

Check Your Dog for Ticks

When you’re done camping, there’s a good chance your dog is going to have spent some great quality time in the outdoors. However, being outside in the woods comes with its fair share of risks, including the risk of fleas and ticks. When the camping trip is over (or at the end of each day), inspect your dog for ticks. If you find one, remove it. Make sure you check with your vet if you find a tick to make sure that your dog is not at risk for any health problems. To help stave off ticks to begin with, try a preventative like Revolution tick treatment.

 

If you’re planning a camping trip this season, there’s no reason not to bring along your furry friends. However, you should learn about how to keep your dog safe, healthy, and happy on a camping trip first. That way, you can avoid any potential risks or issues that could arise, and simply allow everyone to enjoy a fun and adventurous escape into nature. Camping with your dogs is just the best!

    I never thought of bringing a doggie first aid kit, but it makes perfect sense! My yellow lab Buddy would have loved camping—and had a way of finding trouble so I know it would have come in handy. Great tips!

    My daughters have been asking for a dog for more than a year. I had one as a kid, but I’d be willing to open our home up to a pet after reading your post.

    Thanks for all the great doggie advice. I don’t have a dog…but am always dreaming of having one of my own. There have been a lot of doggies in trouble on the trails near my recently. Many of these tips translate well to hikers too. Thanks for sharing…I really love the dog first aid kit idea. So smart!
