One of the most enjoyable things about camping is it is conducive to relaxing. Bring along a camping hammock or jumbo hammock chair…especially if you are taking an RV. They are portable and can be hung from most trees. There is nothing better than stretching out in a hammock of some sort with your pet and watching the sunset from a hammock chair.
Finding great hikes, places to swim and good campsites are pertinent to making your camping trip fun and relaxing. These are things you can plan before you go. Our website has all the information on this along with maps. If you are going out for any real length of time, you will most likely want to stop and stay at a pet friendly hotel once in a while to freshen up. We have many that don’t require making reservations too long in advance. In fact, many you reserve from your mobile device.
Pet friendly camping includes packing all the essentials that your pet will need for a fun and safe camping trip. To protect your pet using safe products, we highly suggest purchasing the PawPurity Flea & Tick Shampoo and Spray Dog Care Package so you don’t have any unwanted surprises. If you plan on doing a lot of hiking, we also recommend bringing along some PawPurity Healing Paw Conditioner. It is quick at healing even the most cracked and dry paws. It absorbs quickly and is safe if your dog is a licker.
Make sure to pack:
While hiking with your pet, it’s important to avoid wild mushrooms, acorns, elderberries and poison ivy. These natural items can be poisonous to dogs. It is also best not to let your pet drink from natural water sources, unless you have iodine purification tablets or a water-filtration system. Giardia and cryptosporidium are common parasites in natural water sources and can cause severe cramping and diarrhea.
National forests are ideal for camping with your pet, but state parks are a different story. Some allow pets, and others do not. National camping resort chains like Jellystone and KOA are pet friendly.
Whatever pet friendly campground you select, it is sure to be extra fun for your pet. Be sure to take your pet along with you for some picturesque hikes and cooling swims while you enjoy the great outdoors.
