Dog walking gear for the best camping and hiking experience

Hands free dog leash for joggingYou can make a camping experience with your dog one to remember as long as you plan ahead. To be safe, warm and dry, you will need all the right dog walking gear equipment including first aid kit and dog insect repellent. Outdoor gear for dogs has come a long way in the last twenty years.

Backpacks, shoes, and reflective collars are just a few things to consider. Water activities require a flotation device for the safety of your dog depending on swimming ability. You may also need a travel bedroom, dining and folding bowl, water with plenty of food and a healthy dog.

Here are some things you can do to get started preparing for the trip.

Information about diseases

Consult your veterinarian: Do your veterinarian give your dog a full physical. Heart health, body weight, and general physical condition will be taken into consideration. All vaccines must be updated. Your veterinarian may have more information about diseases or insects prevalent in the area you will visit.

Get in shape: For those of us indoors most of the winter, short training courses gradually increase the amount of time. Whenever possible, walking is the best exercise.

Go shopping: List all the things you think you will need. Keep in mind the area you will visit and all the activities your dog will participate in. Then go online and search for it.

Get the right gear for the dog: Help your dog become familiar with the new outdoor dog gear and always select only the best, like this hands free dog leash with dual handles and bungee cord for jogging. Some things like shoes and backpack can be worn around the house and on the walk your dog used to wear.

Diet change: If you will feed your dog a new type of food that has been put and packaged for travel, try eating before the trip to see your dog has no negative reaction or if you need to change it up.

When your dog walks on the sand during those cold months and rain, you could even get a raincoat for the dogs to protect him from the cold. Even in cold and snowy conditions, for extra protection, there are winter boots lined with feathers and rain boots to keep your body warmer and warmer. There are a large range of waterproof hooded dog coats as well as wool-lined wool raincoat coats, with comfortable warm wool linings available.

I understand that it is not easy to find high-quality pet equipment but if you are diligent you will find it. We dog owners have raincoats and warm clothing, and your precious pet needs to have the same warmth and protection. The elegant raincoat or jacket will keep you warm and pampering and will eliminate the discomfort of this wet dog if you’re certain it will rain.

There are also amazing pet clothes available for all breeds and dog sizes, some with caps, velcro closure, leash openings, flexible leg straps and adjustable belly straps. You’ll find more and more wonderful choices of wonderful pet accessories, and once you have found a fabulous store make sure you have a bookmark of it so you can find it for later use!

Good luck out there!


New Hands Free Dog Leash

hands free dog leash for hiking running walking black small and large dogs

It all started out as a homemade device that I made out of necessity living on the road camping and staying in hotels with my dog all over the Western United States. I figured out to put a carabiner from rock climbing onto the end of my normal black dog leash, then secured it to my belt so that my dog could come with me when I checked into hotels and when I set up our campsite in California State Parks.

I started using the hands free styled dog leash approach and really enjoyed the benefits of having my hands free for other things, as well as preventing the dog from pulling as much. Your dog attempting to pull against a leash fastened to your waist is much harder for it to do than jerking a leash that is handheld. The dog quickly learns the futility of trying to pull you when you change the center of gravity to your favor.
