We love camping with our dogs in the summer but what about in the winter? If your dog is suitable for colder weather, camping in the snow is probably the best new thing to try this winter if you haven’t done it yet. But before you go, it is important to ensure you are well prepared and have the proper equipment. Here we’ve compiled a list of dog gear to make the experience more enjoyable and memorable for you and your pooch.
Some backcountry trails don’t enforce the use of a leash, but it is necessary to bring one along. It is important to keep your pet close in case of wildlife encounters, steep side hills, creek crossings or anything that requires absolute control of your dog. Choose a 5-6ft sturdy leash on a solid collar or harness that clips easily.
