Are you the adventurous kind of doggy parent; the outdoorsy kind whose ideal retreat is a camping trip in the woods? Do you sometimes find it hard to know what to take to make your pup’s trip as comfortable as possible? At Lords & Labradors we have a whole variety of products especially chosen to make travelling as easy and stress-free as possible. So take a look at our top five products for camping with your dog; a list of items that we think will make your next night under the stars a pleasure for you and your canine family members!
What to Take on a Camping Trip With Dog
A Pet Travel Crate
Travelling in the car is an important consideration for even the smallest journey. There are a couple of options here depending on the breed and size of your dog. The Ellie Bo car crates are available in Standard and Deluxe, in 2 sizes. They will fit in most car boots and are suitable for breeds up to the size of a cocker spaniel and similar. If you have a larger breed and a large vehicle (a Discovery for example) then a standard Ellie-Bo crate may be a better choice (if you can fit it in with all your other camping equipment!). If you’d prefer something less cage-like, then the waterproof pet crate or Bracco Carriers may be more suitable. They pop down flat when not in use and can used once you get to your destination as a bed as well as travelling in the car.
Beco Travel Bowls
The Travel Bowls by Beco are a must for any dog owner. Made from a natural rubber and available in 3 sizes and 3 colours they pop down flat when not in use and are ideal for food and water on the go.
A Waterproof Mat is a great multi-purpose item to take on your travels. It can be used in your car boot, in your dog’s crate or just in your tent when relaxing in the evenings. Its waterproof properties make it super practical; ideal when your dog has just been for a swimthe evening. We also have a luxury tweed version from Tweedmill – perfect for countryside adventures!
Everything by Ruffwear!
An accessory or two by Ruffwear is a must for any adventuring dog. Ruffwear make a host of premium accessories designed especially for outdoorsy canines. The collection includes Hoopie Collars and Front Range leads in an array of colours; the Float Coat for camping trips by the river; and the Beacon Dog Safety Light, so whatever kind of camping trip you’re going on, you can be sure your dog stays safe at all times.
Ruff & Tumble Dog Drying Coat
An everyday essential, but particularly great for travel; the ultimate drying coats for dogs from Ruff & Tumble are a practical choice for all happy campers. We all know the weather can’t always be trusted; if you get caught in a shower, pop a drying coat on your dog once you’re back at the tent to keep him dry and warm.
