Getaway camping with your dog!


We all love our doggo’s and with the wish to bring them with us when we hit the tracks is beyond belief, after all our pooch is an integral part of our families too!

The reality is, when you are searching for a camping location that you will find it increasingly harder and harder to find a campsite that will let you bring your doggo along with you. So listen closely and we will help you figure out a good way for you to escape with your best bud without being hassled by park rangers or campsite managers.  

Before doing anything or heading anywhere, you need to double check the local rules regarding bringing your dog with you to your chosen destination. Whilst some places don’t explicitly ban dogs, it’s a good idea to do a quick search online to see what you can find sometimes people will post info online on blogs, or even on camping forums. If you still haven’t found a definite no, then you are probably in luck.

The objective now is keeping your pup low key, there are many reasons why you don’t want to draw attention to your best bud, the biggest being that drawing attention, means that someone might complain, this is the way things get banned outright removing any doubt that you aren’t allowed to bring your dog in future.

This means that your dog needs to be absolutely well behaved, and on top of that also needs to have at least a collar and leash when you first get to camp, if there are other people around your curious pup may want to investigate, and despite how much you love buddy, not everyone likes dogs and this could get you and your pup reported to the authorities regardless of how innocent their interaction might have been.
