Ever wondered what to bring on adventures like @zizou.adventure.ears does? Read the next in our series guest written by Zizou's mom herself.
Below is a list to help guide you while you pack a hiking bag for your pup. Every dog is different and may require other items on the trails. Always be prepared for different outdoor conditions such as cold or wet weather.
Eco friendly Poop Bags it’s so important to remember bags out on the trail no one likes to see dog poop while out on a nice hike. You are responsible for your pup outdoors so always clean up after them.
Doo Doo Tube because I do not like to smell what I’m packing out
Rexspecs if you have a dog with sensitive eyes or are in an area with extreme conditions these can be so important to protect your pup.
Snacks: DoolingMonsters Fruit Milk Chews, Osispantry Beaver Tail and Happy Tails Chicken Jerky
On longer hikes I bring a pack of Portland Pet Food so we have plenty of energy for the long trek back.
First aid kit, you never know when you need to wrap a paw or pull out some cacti spines
Natural Dog Company PAWTECTION we put this on before the trails but pack it in case we need to reapply
Bowl for water and to rehydrate some chicken for longer hikes
Water lots and lots of water.
An extra Wayward snood in case we need to wet one to cool down.
We always bring our light up collar in case we end up in the dark, an easy way to keep track of your pup on the trail.
And if you have room we always bring a small towel to warm up, dry off or just to rest on.
Remember you are responsible for your dog, please respect the rules of each trail. And always clean-up after yourself and your pup.
