What You Need To Take Your Dog Camping

camping with dogs

Summer time and the livin’ is easy…

It’s also a great time to go camping with your dog.

Like any outdoor experience, safety is key and the right products go a long way in making that happen.

A pet tent is a great investment for a doggie camping trip. The SturdiPet Tent $74,99 is a favorite for those with small to medium sized dogs, and for multi-pet families. The tent offers a spacious well-ventilated space for safe containment. Ideal to pop open and offer shade wherever you are too. And remember, a tent is useful to add to your pet’s emergency evacuation kit.

It’s a good idea to get your pet a ground sheet and then place a pet blanket like the Alphapooch Sleeper Toile Coco Pet Blanket, $23.99 on top for comfort .It’s fabric and reversible fleece and thus can be thrown in the washing machine.

Further, make sure you have a nice collapsible water and food bowls such as the collapsible silicone bowls from Good2Go, $7.99 and be sure to pack food in air-tight containers.

Finally make sure you pet has sunscreen protection and flea and tick protection too.
