Tips and Tricks for a Stress Free Getaway with Your Furry Companion
Thinking about taking a camping trip with your dog? Worried that it might be a bit stressful? With a little bit of preparation, you can bring your canine companion along on your next camping trip for a relaxing getaway. We’ve pulled together some helpful tips and tricks to help you get started.
There’s no air conditioning in nature, so staying hydrated is important. A collapsible bowl is a lightweight and portable tool that helps you make sure your dog is getting enough water. Allow these bowls to dry before collapsing them to help keep them free from anything unsanitary.
Northwest Naturals Freeze Dried Diets makes feeding your pets while hiking and camping with your pets easy. Lightweight and convenient to feed, the NWN Recipes are complete and balanced for your canine companion. Just pour in a bowl and add water.
The Freeze-dried nuggets can be fed during the day to keep the energy level and nutritional requirements stable while hiking. For weekend camping trips, you can pack your raw frozen diets that have been frozen into convenient portions. Smaller portions stay fresh longer and can be frozen to maintain freshness (and act as ice packs).
Don’t forget the Treats!
Packing an easy to transport treat option like freeze dried treats makes rewarding, and spoiling your pet safer, healthier, and easier. Freeze dried treats won’t spoil and don’t need to be refrigerated. They’re wholesome and healthy options for which your pets will go bananas.
Pet First Aid Kit
While bandages and wraps might work on both pets and humans alike, when it comes to scrapes and sores, pet first aid is very different. Pain pills and anti-inflammatory drugs that are made for us can be poisonous to them. It’s also a good idea to have a salve or poultice that will stop a scrape from bleeding if you are going to be hiking any rugged terrain.
Often overlooked, a small light that can clip to your pets collar or harness is a great way to keep them safe at night. Keep an eye on your pet as it gets dark, while you sit around the campfire and after the lights go out, make nighttime potty breaks a breeze.
Preparation is the key to a great outdoor experience with your dog. Now it’s time to hit the trail and enjoy some fresh air and nature!
