					Taking Your Canine Friend on Your Camping Holiday
Camping holidays are popular types of holidays. People enjoy taking them for many reasons. They can be a fun-filled experience for the entire family
and it can be a cheap Self catering holiday. If your family includes a dog, then there's no reason why this furry family member cannot be part of your
holiday journey. With proper planning and considerations, your pet can easily go along with the rest of the family. When planning for your dog to take
a camping holiday with you, you must of course pack food items just for your dog. You must determine the number of days that you will be gone on
your holiday. You need to take as much food as your dog can consume in this many days. Also, it is advisable to pack some additional food. It's better
to have a little too much than not enough. Water should so be packed for your dog. Even though the campsite may have water available, you will
need some for your pet while you are travelling to your destination site. Those gallon jugs that can be purchased at the grocery store would be ideal for
your dog. You must also plan for any accessories or additional items your dog will need. You might want to consider purchasing a safety jacket for
your dog, especially if your campsite is in close proximity to water. Even though most dogs are able to swim quite well in water, some may not be used
to doing so. Preparing ahead for this will insure a more positive experience for your pet. Dogs could potentially be lost on these trips. Make sure your
dog's collar has some identification on it that would notify anyone finding your dog of how to make contact with you. Also, you must be sure to bring a
leash for your dog. Even those campsites permit dogs; they do have some rules regarding their use of the campground. For the most part, you will be
required to keep your dog on a leash when venturing from your campsite. Many sites also have strict rules regarding the clean up and disposal of dog
waste. Make sure you pack items to assist with this task. Keeping the campground clean is important.
