How to Choose the Best Tent for Camping with Dogs


Saint Augustine said, “This world is a book and those who don’t travel, read but only a page.” This is very much true also. And this is why a lot of people love travelling. Some travel alone and some travel in groups. But some prefer to travel with a man’s best friend, i.e., their beloved dogs. 

But travelling with dogs needs some extra care and preparation. After all, you wouldn’t want your beloved furball to face any problem, right? 

So, in this blog, we will talk about few things you should consider to choose the best tents for camping with dogs. These tips are sure to make the trip the most memorable for you and your goofball. Let’s fluff/start! (dog owners and lovers call dogs ‘floofmin/fluffmin’ and use words derived from ‘fluff’; you can choose between ‘fluff’ and ‘start’)

  • Guidelines of Camping Ground: Some camping grounds have certain rules about pets. You need to find out if there are any rules at your chosen place. If necessary, get the necessary permissions and documents. 
  • Facilities at the Camping Ground: You need to check which facilities are available at the camping ground. Also, make sure that the camping ground is a safe place for your bub. You should be more careful if the camping site is in the woods or in some hilly area. If necessary, make sure that your dog has the GPS chip, proper collar tag, etc. 

Also, if your dog is very active, choosing open spaces or treks may be fun for your furry buddy too.

  • Things to Pack: Your floofmin will need its bowl, toys and other favourite things. But you should also pack in some clothes, shoes, medicines, leashes, muzzles and other similar things. The list gets longer if you have a naughty pupper or a senior dog. You can also pack things like rain and winter jackets, special food and treats, etc. This will help in ensuring more safety and comfort for your dogs.
  • Spacious tents: The tents need to be reasonably spacious so that your goofballs get enough space to goof around. If your dog loves zoomies and other power-packed prances, make sure that the tent and surrounding areas are compatible. Because you wouldn’t want them to use their excess energies on your camping supplies and shoes, right?
  • Emergency Vet Visit: Looking at the variety of possibilities, try to choose a place that has vets nearby. You can never know what may befall your little adorable. At such times, it is better to reach the vet as soon as possible. In case you choose to explore farther territories, make sure that you can contact the vet easily. 
  • Trip to Vet: It is very much necessary to visit your fluffball’s vet before and after the camping trip. This will help in ensuring that your darling is fit and ready for the trip. The vet may also give you some medicines for emergencies. This can save you from many possible emergency trips. After-trip health check-ups help in making sure that your pupper has not contracted any infection or ticks, etc from the trip.

A lot of people dream of exploring this beautiful world with their affectionate travel partners, i.e., dogs. But you need to make sure that your dog lacks no comfort and will enjoy the trip as much as you do.
