While we had a whole slew of activities we were excited for this summer, we're suddenly scrambling to soak up the nice weather and do everything before this happens again.
Sure, camping might be a stretch, but we did just have some interesting questions about how to make camping trips with dogs more successful, and it reminded us how our first outing together as a family--with both pooches--was a camping trip.We are definitely not experts, and we would love to hear everyone's successful camping tips, but here are some things that have worked for us:
Accommodations for All:
Packing for Pooches:
wiping cloths and a towel to keep us all a little less muddy. We bring their food in individual baggies or tupperware pre-portioned for the day (thanks to Reggie's great tip!). We bring long-leashes for the dogs and attach them to the picnic table at our campsite so they have some freedom but are still in a safe distance. We also bring a chew so they have something to do when we're setting up the tent.
These are some things that work for us, but we would like to hear how everyone else successfully camps with their dogs.. especially if you have safe advice for keeping the mosquitos off of Miss M's belly.
