Pet Friendly Campgrounds:
No need to leave any family members behind when you head out for a family camping trip. We’ve found a great resource for finding pet friendly campgrounds! Bring Fido will help you find a campground that both you and Spot will enjoy.
Pet friendly camping is the perfect way to include all family members in your vacation, but don’t forget, that does mean a little more work for you and your family. Here are a 4 rules to remember when you RV with Spot:
- Pick it up: Always clean up after your dog (or other pets) after they’ve finished going to the bathroom. No one wants to be out for a hike and step in Fido’s leave behinds. Bring plenty of environmentally friendly pick up bags with you and dispose of them in dedicated receptacles.
- Know your limits: Your dog might be the friendliest dog you’ve ever met, but that doesn’t mean everyone’s dog is on the same page. When leaving your campsite to roam the grounds, bring along a leash for those less than friendly encounters.
- No man (or pet) left behind: Remember the tent or RV you’re staying in might not feel like home to your family pet. Try to minimize leaving your pet alone to reduce the amount of stress your pet experiences. No one wants to be left out of all the fun!
- Watch the weather: Just like us humans, pets are sensitive to extreme hot and cold. On hot days, bring water and find rivers/lakes to help pets cool down. On cold days, think about leaving Fido in the RV or bringing along an adorable puppy jacket.
Have any other pet tips to share? We’d love to add them to our list.
