5 Tips for Camping with Dogs

Essential camping dog rules and advice

1.      Control unnecessary barking

If you can’t control your dog(s), and they’re not well behaved around people and animals, don’t take them. Camping in the evening and mornings especially should be about relaxing chill-out time. Sure it can be lively and a little loud sometimes in the day and early evening, but once it’s getting towards bedtime, be it 9:30 or 12:30, nobody wants to hear excessive barking from the mutt 6 tents down.

2.      Ensure your dog stays healthy

  • Be attentive to your dog’s health at all times.
  • Be knowledgeable of diseases that can be contracted through wildlife, plants, and insects.
  • Use flea/tick repellents or collars. Dogs are higher risk in getting ticks and fleas.
  • Allow time for your dog to adjust to new surroundings.
  • Make sure you provide rest time for your dog.
  • Never leave your dog unattended when it’s outside.
  • Remove any leftover dog food after mealtime and store in a place which will not attract unwanted wildlife and insects.
  • Please note that it is recommended that dogs and other pets not be taken into back country terrain. These areas are not suitable for dogs or other pets due to rugged terrain, wildlife issues and the potential for problems with bears.

3.      Know your dog

Use common sense and don’t let your dog wander up to other dogs or people off the lead if they’re known to be moody and snappy. I really can’t stress enough how there are only certain types of dogs that go well with camping, and that’s a dog with a good owner who has trained them to be polite.

4.      Leashing your dog

  • Leash your dog well away from your campfire.
  • Tether the leash to you or to a stake, a picnic table leg or RV handle.
  • For a larger roaming area use an expandable leash or a dog tie-out. Another suggestion is to tie a rope between two trees, and secure the leash to the rope for a dog run.
  • Keep a watchful eye on your dog to make sure they are safe from their leash getting tangled around tent poles, stakes, chairs, picnic table, trees, etc.
  • For times when you want your dog to have more freedom, bring along a portable exercise pen. Portable pens are designed to fold down easily and can be bought at local hardware or pet stores.

5.      Avoid overfeeding

Do not throw your dog’s lots of extra BBQ meat and other rich treats they usually wouldn’t have at home when camping. You will regret it in the morning when you spend the whole night wishing you’d brought a gas mask along, even if you would look like you were emerging from the trenches when you unzip the tent first thing.
