    Default Taking our boy camping!

    Hi everyone. My boyfriend and I are planning a two week camping/site seeing trip from Saskatchewan to Ontario this summer. We will be bringing a camper with a/c, so we decided to bring our 1 1/2 year old EB with us! Any tips or advice would be great! Or any dog friendly activities would be awesome too!

    Bulldog activities...hmmm this could be tough. Hey, how about eating and sleeping for starters.
    Watch out for tics
    Take Bully med kit...Benadryl, Imodium, Pepcid or similar, Ear cleaner and Q tips, shampoo, any dog friendly antibiotic, prednisone if you have it, pain meds if you have it, antibiotic ointment, Vet wrap dressing, eye meds if you have it, peroxide to clean a wound or to induce vomiting. Think back over the past year anything you might have used to maintain or treat your Diesel with...take it!
    Vet records in case of emergency, always know where the closest vet clinic and after hours vet is located and have a plan and map that you can navigate blindfolded.
    Harness
    Extra lead and collar
    Life jacket
    X-pen
    Kennel
    Towels
    Ice packs
    Portable water bottle/bowl if he hikes with you
    Make sure you go no further away from camp than you can carry him back
    Measure out each meal and add a couple of days worth extra
    Bottles and bottles of water
    Doggie dookie bags
    Watch for tics

    I hope there's something on this list that you haven't already thought of...
    Have fun!

    saving as many as we can for the sake of Bullykind

    Hey neighbour....in June, I cross Alberta to Montreal n back with Nyala in a pickup. It was great! Dont forget to stop often! They need to stretch even if they sleep most of the time. Nyala is an energetic bunny but slept all the way or just laid there. My stops were 20ish mins and I would play ball with her or run around with here. Make sure you gas before entering the great lakes (park)? As only gas stations are in Salute Ste Marie. I gas often never let it go under half but that's me and same time Nyala had her pit stops. I too the Trans Canada as more traffic if something happens to you. But beautiful back roads for sure.

    Ha, ha, until I saw 'this summer' I was thinking camping might be a bit cold this time of year!

    We haven't been camping with Castor but we often spend time outdoors and in the forest taking quite long walks with him. Hot summer days we don't go out mid day and we always bring water during the summer months. Tick prevention is essential if there are ticks where you are going.
