Preparing for Your Hike
for both you and your pup, as well as a portable water bowl.
for waste disposal, and adhere to the “Leave No Trace” principles.
if required by park regulations or if your dog doesn’t have a reliable recall.
and let them pass if your dog needs space or is easily excited.
and dispose of waste properly.
and remove any you find using a tick-removal tool or tweezers.
for any cuts, scrapes, or debris lodged between their toes.
with some well-deserved rest and maybe even a treat for their hard work!
