Furry Companions on the Go: Tips & Tricks for a Pet-Friendly Outdoor Expedition
Exploring the great outdoors can be even more fun by having your furry best friend in tow. If you’re planning to take a pet along on your next hiking, camping or RV trip, there are a few details to take care of first. Below are a few tips and tricks on making the most of your upcoming, pet-friendly adventure.
Firstly, be sure to take consideration when laying out the destination or stops along the way. Owners should look up pet policies at parks, campsite restrictions and any campground rules regarding pets before deciding on a spot to camp or lodge. For instance, there may be prohibitions on certain dog breeds, additional fees and limits on the number of dogs per campsite.
A major part of accommodating a pet on a trip is packing all the essentials. From must-have items like pet food, prescription medications, bottled water, bowls, bedding, waste pickup bags and leashes to items specific to the trip like booties, life jackets or a RV-fitted pet ramp, these necessities should be carefully considered and packed accordingly. It’s important to note that the water where you’re going may not be suitable for pets. That’s why it’s vital to bring an adequate supply of bottled or fresh water.
With the proper planning and prep work, adventuring with your feline or canine companions can be a rewarding experience you’ll never forget. For a more complete guide on RV camping with pets, please see the accompanying resource.
