Hiking with a Loyal Companion AKA Your Dog

Our furry firends accompany us everywhere, and a hiking trip is no different. This blog post will discuss some essentials you may need when you go hiking with your dog.

Choose the Location Carefully

Not all places are the same when hiking with dogs. Taking your dog to a place that has a lot of wildlife isn’t the best idea. For example, if you're planning on hiking around cliffs, don't bring your dog.

Be Fully Equipped

Take what you would usually need for your dog, including food, water, and medications. You should also take any extra things that the dog might need if it gets injured or falls ill during the trip. If you some special harnesses, take those too.


Make a Plan

If you plan on taking a leisurely route, determine how much exercise they can have. Not all dogs can perform the same amount of physical activity during hikes. If the hike includes a steep incline, you may want to reconsider bringing them.

Dog Waste Disposal Bags

You must take a dig waste disposal bag and keep as many as you can because it can be hard to find one in remote areas during your hike.

Reach out to AARN for premium hiking packs that are naturally balanced day bags. Our bag packs are not only body-friendly but also science smart so that most of the backpack weight is evenly distributed.
