Backpacking with Your Dog Infographic
Posted by Joey Holmes on 22nd March 2018
Heading out hiking and backpacking with your pup can be one of the
most satisfying and joyful ways to spend time together. If
hiking then your dog is going to have THE best time ever! And hiking together
in the wild will be one of the only times you are both totally in your element.
But if you take to the trail without the right preparations and
supplies, your dream trip can soon turn on its head. So make sure you do your
research and get on the right track when it comes to doggie training, bag carrying,
food supplies, trail knowledge, gear, and trail etiquette.
This infographic by Cool of the Wild takes you through the basics
of all you need to know before you take your hound hiking and backpacking.

Cool of the Wild. She can’t get enough of being outdoors – whether that’s
lounging around the campfire cooking up a feast, hitting the trail in her
running shoes, or attempting to conquer the waves on her surfboard – she lives
for it. Camping is what she loves to do the most, but has also spent many many
hours clinging to the side of a rock face, cycling about the place, cruising
the ski-slopes on her snowboard and hiking small mountains and big hills.
Trying to decide which is better for your dog—a collar or a harness? The short answer is: You may need both. It really depends on the size and temperament of your dog and what it takes to maintain safe control of him.
A dog barking in the backseat of the car can be a real nuisance—and even a hazard—for human drivers. But for dogs, barking is a way of communicating. In order to put the kibosh on all that annoying barking, we first need to understand why our furry companion is barking to begin with.
