  1. Want to take the dog on the first camping trip, any tips? What do I need to prepare?
  2. Dog food, water bowl.

    Going to a campground? Lame
    You'll need a 6 foot leash/cable.

    My dogs rarely want to eat when I camp, but I bring an extra rib eye steak and cut it in half for them, they won't touch kibble so I don't even bother to bring it. They'll eat eggs in the morning.

  3. rub um down with orange peel daily, keeps ticks and fleas off them at least controls them, surely take a leash , always keep in mind that other dogs and maybe wolf or coyote will send in a bait bitch, she will lure your dog to the pack , they eat him , so keep the animal on a leash even when the begging puppy eyes say turn me loose, if you dont want your dog to eat table scraps dont feed human food, all it takes is once and they want your food from there after, every time you eat they be sweating you for it hahahah
    just feed the animal what you always do, but keep it leased , when you think you know your dog a rodent or other animal will cause a chase and the excitment , every order you give falls on deaf ears hahah

  4. Don't forget the doggie blanket or bedding.
    Everyone's idea of camping can be allot different depending on age and finances.
    Some dogs will run off for whatever reason

    Nature, insects, toxic plants animals ,, I have had allot of issues with skunks, beavers and coyotes.
    City life is different then country life for dog.
    State and national parks all dogs have to be restrained 24/7..........

    If you have a dog with long hair take a brush ..

    I have a very nice RV but try to feed my dog canned Mackrell like every other meal.
    As above my dog eats people food too.

  6. Taking your dog on a camping trip can be a fun and exciting experience, but it's important to prepare properly to ensure your dog's safety and comfort. Here are some tips and things you'll need to prepare:

    1. Check the camping rules: Make sure the campsite you're planning to visit allows pets, and if so, check if there are any restrictions or specific rules you need to follow.

    2. Pack dog essentials: Bring enough food, water, and treats for your dog, as well as a leash, collar with identification, poop bags, and a first aid kit. You may also want to bring your dog's favorite toy or bed to make them feel more at home.

    3. Prepare your dog for the trip: Gradually acclimate your dog to the idea of camping by taking them on shorter trips, letting them explore the outdoors, and camping in your backyard. Make sure your dog is up to date on their vaccinations and flea/tick prevention, and consider getting them microchipped.

    4. Keep your dog safe: Always supervise your dog, especially around the campfire and water sources. Keep your dog on a leash or in a secure area, such as a crate or tether, when you're not able to supervise them. Be aware of potential wildlife in the area and keep your dog away from dangerous plants or toxic substances.

    5. Plan for your dog's comfort: Bring a waterproof and insulated dog bed or blanket for your dog to sleep on, and provide plenty of shade and water to keep them cool. If it's cold, bring extra blankets or a doggy jacket to keep them warm. Don't forget to bring a collapsible water dish for your dog to drink from.

    6. Be considerate of other campers: Respect other campers' space and keep your dog quiet and well-behaved. Always pick up after your dog and dispose of waste properly.
    By following these tips and being prepared, you and your furry friend can have a great time on your first camping trip together!

    Camping with your furry friend is such a treat, and it's awesome you're thinking about taking your dog along for the adventure. Before you head out, maybe pop by the vet to make sure all vaccinations and flea or tick preventatives are up-to-date. Of course, you'll want to check that the camping location you have in mind is pet-friendly. I'd recommend if you're still looking for a spot; they're really accommodating for pets and have excellent amenities.
    In terms of gear, it goes without saying that you'll need the basics like a leash, some food, and a water bowl. A first-aid kit for minor emergencies is a wise addition to your packing.
