Along with the essentials—ID collar, tag and poop bags—here are items to make outdoor excursions with your dog even better.

  1. Back Packs. Back packs store everything your dog needs for outdoors. Dogs love back packs, especially ones that are form fitting and better load carrying. Start with a light load and work up to a heavier load as your dog gets accustomed to wearing a pack. Make sure your dog carries no more than 25% of its body weight in the pack. The ‘Canine Equipment Ultimate Trail Pack’ is one example of a comfortable, secure product with a fully adjustable dual  pannier.
  2. First Aid Kit. For basic care of minor injuries, choose a kit that fits easily into a knapsack or clips to your dog’s  leash. We like the ‘Canine Equipment Pocket First Aid Kit’.
  3. Travel Dog Bed. What dog doesn’t love overnight trips? An on-the-go resting place will keep him comfortable  throughout your travels. Look for a bed with easy-to-clean, waterproof fabric and a loft at least 1 inch thick. Measure the space your dog takes up snoozing to make sure the bed has enough wiggle room. The ‘Kurgo Loft Wander Dog Bed’ is popular with its non-slip, waterproof bottom and roll-up design.
  4. Hands Free Leash System. A system makes hiking or jogging easier. The ‘Outward Hound Hands Free Hipster’ features a 5 foot leash with zippered pockets and a water bottle holder on the waist band.
  5. Travel Bowl. Travel bowls are perfect for meals or drinking water. Look for a compact, pop-up design made from nontoxic and durable silicone, yet is flexible enough to collapse and fit in any bag.
