7 Camping Essentials for Your Favourite Furbaby

NITEDAWG BY NITEIZE

Keep track of your gear hound at night with the NiteDawg LED collar by NiteIze. The bright LED illuminates along its entire length for high visibility up to 1,000 feet away. Have a swimmer on your hands? The NiteDawg is water resistant for salty dogs that love to jump in the lake anytime of day. Adjustable and its 100-hour battery is easy to replace.

ADVENTURE DOG SERIES BY ADVENTURE MEDICAL KITS

Your pup loves the freedom of the trail as much as you, so this kit has comprehensive first aid solutions to keep both of you safe on all your adventures together. You’ll find all the essentials you’ll both need for a one- to four-day trip in the Me & My Dog Kit (pictured), but if you prefer to travel light, opt for the far more compact Heeler kit ($10) for day-trip bare necessities.

WANDERBED BY KURGO

Reward your best bud after a long day of adventuring by letting sleeping dogs lie on Kurgo’s ultra-cushy Wanderbed. As perfect for the car or home as it is for the campsite, this travel doggie bed is a cozy place for your snooze hound to sleep it off. The Wanderbed’s waterproof and non-slip bottom makes it perfect for sand and dewy grass, but if soaked it would take a while to dry. The Wanderbed rolls up like a sleeping bag and has a built-in carrying handle.

COLLAPS-A-BOWL BY KURGO

This slick and award-winning travel bowl collapses to barely an inch-thick disc when not in use. It springs back into a voluminous shape with enough kibble room to satiate even the biggest mutt. And it’s not just dogs that love the Collaps-A-Bowl—we came across a few online raves from parents who bought them as snack bowls for their kids.

BARKERBAG BY BARKERBAG

Your dog’s adventurous life might be about to get a little more luxurious. The BarkerBag is a zip-on extension for your mummy bag that accommodates dogs up to 70 pounds. A built-in cinchable collar helps keep your canine in place all night, putting a muzzle on midnight tent prowls. The best part? Not only does Fido stay warm, so do your feet.

PUP SAVER BY OUTWARD HOUND

This high-flotation neoprene life jacket is a must-have for dogs on canoe trips and any woofer spending lots of time in the water. The flexible design of the Pup Saver means mobility remains unencumbered, while Mom and Dad can keep a closer eye thanks to high viz colors. A durable back handle offers easy rescue and restraint.

KONG TOY

A gold standard among dog owners for more than three decades, stuff treats into your dog’s Kong toy and you’ll keep them out of trouble so you can set up camp or tend to dinner.
