We all want to get away from the hustle, the bustle, the daily stress and the people, all those people! Camping allows us to see new sights, be alone, figure out stuff, bonds us as a family, creates life-long memories and reminds us how lucky we are to live in this beautiful country. It’s good for our minds, bodies, and souls. It would be a shame to take this journey without your dog. Dogs are the domesticated ancestors of wolves. They have the instinctive drive of wild wolves to explore, hunt and sniff, but they also have the domesticated need for love and protection by their humans. Camping ..read more

This is obvious, of course, with their sense of smell and hearing being superior. But the eyes, in many ways, are not superior to ours.   Gener ..read more
