There’s no better camping companion than a well-trained four-legged friend. Make sure the campsite allow dogs and that your dog is up to date on vaccinations and medications. Also consider tick, flea and heartworm medications before you head out. Bring a strong leash, a harness for hiking, poop bags, treats, a light for your dog’s collar and a doggie first aid kit.
