need to have their rules and there will be strict regulations on free-roaming dogs.
What will you be doing on your camping trip?
If you plan on spending your days sightseeing in towns or visiting tourist attractions, bringing your dog along probably won’t work. Leaving unattended dogs at campgrounds or in a vehicle for hours is as bad an idea.
Be prepared. Choose a campsite that allows dogs. There might be extra costs and certain restrictions. Having an ID for your dog will it to be easily identified. Add details of the campground and your mobile number to a temporary tag .
Locate a vet near to the campsite. The odds are that you won’t need to use it, but it’s good to know it’s there.
Apply a flea and tick preventative to your dog. Camp areas are prime locations to pick up unwanted parasites that are unpleasant for your dog.
Follow the rules of the campsite when camping with dogs. Put a load of dogs in a field with families, tents, food, smells, fresh air and no rules, and all havoc would break loose. Here are some good guidelines that apply to camping with a dog:
• Bag the poop and take it with you.
• Don’t let your dog adopt another family. They may look like they want him around, but he’ll think it’s OK to visit the whole campsite. Not everyone will be quite as welcoming.
• Don’t shout at your dog constantly – if he’s a disobedient dog leave him home.
• Don’t ignore your dog if he won’t stop barking. It might be that you need to take him for a walk off site to quiet him down.
• Just because you know your dog is friendly, doesn’t mean other people will assume the same. So keep him on a leash when around other people or other dogs.
• Acclimate your dog to their new surroundings. Having been cooped up in the car for hours, they’ll be dying for a pee and ready to stretch their legs. So before you set up camp, give him a treat and take him for a walk. A stroll around the site will get him used to all the exciting new smells and sounds.
