Man’s best friend deserves some time outside of the home too, right? Many people take their dogs on hiking day trips, but how many of you bring them on overnight trips that involve camping?
What are your criteria for bringing your dog? Does weather play a factor? How about bear activity? If you go hiking, would you leave your dog tied up at the camp site or bring him along with you?
I went camping once with a group of people and there were two dogs with us – each with a different owner. The dogs did not like each other and ended up getting into a pretty nasty fight. Everyone was trying to break it up and one of the owners got bit on the hand.
I have no problem bringing a dog on a camping trip, but if you’re bringing two dogs … please make sure they get along first!
