Stay Hydrated

Bring plenty of water and a portable bowl to keep your pet hydrated. Avoid letting your pets drink from unknown water sources. A collapsible water bowl is super handy, and most can attach to your pack.

Food and Treats

Pack extra pet food treats. A few high-energy treats can be great for long hikes. Long-lasting chew or dehydrated treats are easy to pack. Canned snacks will offer some extra hydration.

Tick and Flea Prevention

Use appropriate tick and flea prevention before your trip. Check your pet daily for ticks. We also have some great bug prevention options in our store, please ask any of our pawssociates for help. A tick remover or flea comb can be a lifesaver.

Exercise and Supervision

Keep your pet on a leash or under close supervision to prevent them from wandering off or encountering wildlife.

Comfort and Shelter

Bring a pet tent, blanket, or bed to ensure your pet has a comfortable place to rest. Ensure they have shade and protection from the elements. A pop-up tent can provide shade and a retreat from bugs but make sure it’s not too warm inside the tent.

Pet Comfort and Shelter in Camping


Ensure your pet is microchipped so they can find their way home to you in case something happens. Consider purchasing one of our pet ID tags, personalized with your pet’s name and your phone number for added safety.


Ensure your pet’s vaccinations are up to date, especially for diseases they might be exposed to in the wild. Carry proof of vaccinations just in case.

Waste Management

Bring bags to clean up after your pet and dispose of waste properly to keep the campsite clean. Biodegradable bags are eco-friendly.

Know the Rules

Check the campsite’s pet policies and any restrictions on trails or areas where pets are allowed.

Pet-Friendly Gear

Bring along some pet-friendly camping gear like a doggy backpack, booties for rough terrain, and a life jacket for water activities.

Night Safety

Use a reflective collar or attach a small LED light to your pet’s collar to keep them visible at night.

Snuggle Time

Don’t forget to relax and enjoy some snuggle time by the campfire. A cozy blanket and some cuddles can make the camping experience even more special.

Please visit our store for any of your camping gear needs and have the best time in nature with your pet!
