“EVERYTHING WILL BE JUST FINE…AS LONG AS THERE ARE DOGS AND TENT. “
A person who has never owned a dog has missed a wonderful part of life, and a person who has never take pooch away on the camping trip has missed a wonderful outdoor time also. Our furry friends will bring us a lot of fun while camping, at the same time they can enjoy a good outdoor life.
The benefits of camping with dogs:
- An abundance of sunlight can help balance the chemical melatonin in our body, and relieve tension and improve sleep quality, it is good whether for you or for your furry friends.
- Sunshine, grass, fresh air, bright starry sky...all of this we are far away from stress and make us get along with our dogs more relaxed.
- When we want to be lazy, such as sitting in a chair all the time or roasting marshmallows by a campfire, our furry friends will encourage you to get up, exploring more local views and having more exercise. This is beneficial for you and your dogs.
But after all, dogs are lively and active most of the time, and we can't let them read the camp rules one by one, which requires us to get various useful tips before camping with dogs.
1. CHECK-IN ADVANCE
If planning to camp out at a campsite or national park with your dog, make sure to check with the accommodation provider in advance, and ask if there have any restrictions or conditions they might have in relation to camping with a dog.
2. DO EXERCISES
Before setting off, you must train your dogs to obey camp rules, heed your instructions and follow them. If you plan to take your dogs on a wildness hiking trip make sure they will heed your instructions and follow them to avoid eat poisonous plants or be attacked by aggressive wild animals.
Make sure your dog is in good shape before the camping trip. Do more exercise before setting off: first, make sure your dog is in good shape; then take your dog on longer hikes to build stamina; then be sure to camp out in your backyard with your dog in advance.
3. MAKE A PRE-TRIP CHECKUP
Visit the veterinarian to check your dog to determine whether the dog's physical and behavioral conditions are suitable for camping.
Keep in mind that many campsites require dogs to have up to date rabies vaccinations, so make sure our dog has all vaccinations and inoculations up to date. At the same time, you need to stock up on any medication and vitamins that your dog requires.
