Finding dog-friendly campsites is only the beginning. Once you have found where you and your pup are going to camp you will need to consider what dog camping essentials to take for both you and them. We all know most dogs love the great outdoors, or great out-dogs should we say, so why not camp out with your doggo adventure buddy in nature and really embrace the wild with our selection of dog camping gear.
Camping with Dogs
Camping with dogs brings extra tummy tickles, morning licks and cold late-night poop walks so make it as easy as possible by having the most important pieces of dog camping necessities packed up in your bag of dog camping gear. We recommend dog camping essentials such as towel-off dog shampoo that requires no water, dog tick removers for the pesky creatures that might be lurking and a poop porter poop bag holder for carrying the smelly stuff when there's little to no bins around. For those venturing further afield from the campsite, you might need a dog hiking carrier backpack or a giant dog leash and whilst back at campground keep your pooch occupied with all-natural and long-lasting dog chews. Don't forget to keep them hydrated and well-fed with a range of travel dog bowls for camping and a stainless steel dog bottle.

Here are some of our favourite dog camping essentials just to get you started.
These fold down flat when not in use, which makes them perfect for taking in your bundle of dog camping accessories. They're also great for feeding your dog but they will still want treats regardless!
A dog camping kit missing poop bags could ruin all that beautiful nature has to offer by leaving behind his visiting card, do you? Of course not! Keep a sufficient amount of dog poop bags with you and the problem will be solved.
There's nothing like having a supplement bar for an energy-filled hike, right? We all need a pick me up sometimes, especially after a night camping outdoors so we have some natural treats for your dogs in the form of Huundenergy dog energy bars.

Puppy Camping Gear
When camping with puppies, it is essential to keep them safe and comfortable. Before you hit the trails, make sure they have a collar with ID tags and their vaccination records on hand.
