Camping in an RV can provide enough adventures for a lifetime of memories, but bringing your four-legged family member along can make the trip even more unforgettable. After all, the humans shouldn’t be the only ones having fun! Let 84 RV Rentals & Service provide an RV rental for the journey that best accommodates your needs, whether that’s a motorhome rental or travel trailer rental, and you can focus on planning your dog-friendly camping trip. We’ll share five essentials that you should include for your canine companion on your next excursion.
1. Canine NecessitiesWhen you bring your dog along on your family trip, you need to consider all of the needs they typically have on a given day. You should bring a dog bed for your pet to sleep on, as well as travel-friendly food and water bowls. Collapsible bowls are easy to pack and don’t take up much space. Don’t forget to pack a lot of doggie waste bags!
2. Dog Safety GearYour dog will need a sturdy leash for walks and perhaps even a tether to keep them at your campsite. If you are going to be in or around water, consider bringing a life jacket for your pet. A reflective collar or vest will make your dog more visible to others, especially at night.
3. Food and TreatsIt’s always best to bring more food than you think you will need in case there are any unforeseen delays. Dog food is not typically as easy to come by on the road as human food. Also, bring some treats along to help calm any traveling anxiety your dog might experience.
4. Pet First Aid KitYou probably keep a first aid kit on hand for your family, but pets need them, too! Accidents and injuries always seem to happen at the most inopportune times, so it’s best to be prepared. Pet first aid kits typically include all of the supplies you need for wound care, as well as a thermometer, tweezers, and an antihistamine.
5. Dog EntertainmentMake sure you pack some chew toys and balls to keep your dog busy on the road and at your campsite. Dogs can get bored and need to be entertained, just like small humans. You might also consider bringing a toy or blanket that bears the scent of your home for an extra measure of comfort.
