If your best friend really wanted to go camping, you wouldn't leave them behind, would you? We sure hope not. And, since dogs are a man (and woman's) best friend, there's no need to leave your pup behind when you decide to embark on a camping journey.
With the holidays in the rear-view mirror and winter inching further along, spring is slowly starting to come into focus—and with it comes the increasing urge to get back outside and into a campground. During a time of seasonal flux, there are some tricks and tips to keep in mind when camping, though. Sure, the scenery can be lush and the trails tend to be far less crowded than summer and fall, but weather can be erratic (to put it mildly), and thorough preparation is paramount. Follow these pointers and you'll be good to go.
