Title:Camping with Your Dogs - Ten CommandmentsWord Count:687Summary:Millions of families take their dogs camping every year, yet few take even the most basicpreparations for their dogs safety and enjoyment. Learn the ten commandments to follow whencamping or Rving with your dog.Keywords:dog, dogs, pet, pets, camping, RV, camprgound directory, pet-friendlyArticle Body:CAMPING WITH DOGS –THE TEN COMMANDMENTSIn the U.S. alone, more than 30 million people each year take their pets with them while camping.Yet, when we first started RVing with our dogs, we were unable to find much written on thesubject. Sure, there were the occasional articles in magazines that reminded us to use pet IDtags, bring plenty of water, and take their favorite toy.

For permanent identification purposes, consider tattoos or microchips. At aminimum, make sure they wear tags that show their name, your current phone number, and thedate of their last rabies vaccination.4. Clean Up After Your DogThe biggest complaint about dogs has nothing to do with their bark, their bite, or their behavior. If you pick up after your dog, you’ll be helping dog owners everywhere.5. Learn How to Provide First Aid to Your DogIf a medical crisis occurs while at home, you drive to your local veterinarian. But if you’re headingdown a dark highway in a strange town, it will seem like a bad dream. Although there are ways toget help while on the road, it always takes more time. In the meantime, your ability to providecompetent first aid could save your dog’s life.6.
