TOP 048: Hiking with Dogs – Planning, Packing and Where to Go

I love hiking with my dogs, but it’s not as easy as most people think it is. I’ve heard many stories from pet owners who weren’t prepared for a hike with their dog, and it ended in disaster. It’s important that you plan ahead for the hike. You need to know what to bring, where to go and what you should be looking out for.

This week I decided to share my tips for hiking with dogs. I start by explaining what you need to do before you even think about setting off on your adventure. Does your dog have a microchip? Identification tags? Has he been checked out by your veterinarian? These are all things that you should be considering if you’re planning to go hiking with your canine companion.

I’m sharing my packing tips for all the must-have items to bring along, and I’ll also let you know what you should be looking out for during your trip. Do you know how often you should be stopping to give your dog a drink or a snack? That’s alright. I’m going to fill you in on all the do’s and don’ts of hiking with dogs in this week’s episode!
