Getting Ready For Adventure With Your Dog
Before setting off on your wilderness adventure with your furry friend, it is your duty as the pet’s owner to provide proper care and be prepared for anything that could come your way.
First order of business is to gather any important information such as proof of ownership, medical records, and a recent photo of your pet. Make sure that your dog is up to date on all vaccinations; a veterinarian could also provide your dog with a routine check-up as well as insect protection medicine. It’s always a good idea to have a first aid kit on standby. Be sure to research the campsite’s flora, fauna, and weather patterns. Another tip is to be aware of the location of the nearest veterinary hospital.
Wherever you are headed, be aware of any campground rules or guidelines that may be in place. Some locations have rules regarding which breeds, sizes, and number of dogs are allowed at the site. In addition to these tips, be prepared for any unexpected fees that were not otherwise advertised. It’s a good idea to always have cash on you.
Next order of business is to pack supplies that are relevant to your destination. Of course, pack plenty of food and clothes, but additional gear like raincoats, life jackets, and walking booties for your pet are going to be necessities should you run into inclement weather. Also be sure to pack plenty of clean drinking water because the water where you are going may not be safe to consume.
Finally, you as the owner should provide a comfortable and confined space for your dog to reside during travel. Owners could choose to crate their dog or rather harness them to the passenger seat. If you are pulling a trailer, always have the dog ride up front with you and not in the vehicle being towed.
