Why Not Take Your Dog with You on Your Next Trip Outdoors?
Since we know lots of people that Hike and Camp with their dogs we wanted to pass along some great information that the people at Dog Etiquette sent us since that’s their specialty. So here’s their advice:
“If you like to go camping, chances are your four-legged buddy will enjoy it, too. No need to hide them away in a kennel: let them take in the sights and scents of the outdoors. But there are a few safety things to consider. Here, we’ve compiled some health and safety tips for taking your dog along.
With just a little advance planning, you and your pooch can explore the world safely. Before long, they’ll be right along with you, hiking trails, swimming in lakes and ponds and cooking over a campfire. They’ll love curling up next to you at night at the end of a long day. Happy trails!”

I love the idea of camping with a dog. I grew up doing this with my family, but a recent experience with my sisters dogs has me a little worried about it. Her dogs couldn't get comfortable and were constantly on guard. The slept very little and awoke at even the smallest sound. I wonder if it just takes a little time for them to get used to things or they need to do it frequently as pups? Any thoughts?
