Camping with your dog is a highly rewarding experience for both of you. Explore new places and scents or go for a swim in the nearby river or ocean. At the end of the day simply sit and relax with friends and family without the fuzz and buzz of the city.
There are millions of blogs written about camping checklists so we decided NOT to create yet another one reminding you of bedding, water bowls, tick tablets, first aid kits, leash, collar… you know the drill! In stead we did some extensive study on WHERE you can go camping with your dog.
