Before heading out the door with your dog for a long walk or a vacation, there are certain things you need to consider. For example, if you’re going for a camping trip that will last about three to four days, make sure you bring plenty of flea and tick repellant, water, and a good first aid kit.
As this video shows, it’s important to shade your dog from harsh sunrays while outdoors. You can find dog-specific sunscreen at a pet store to use on the tip of his ears and nose. Be sure to set up a small shaded area for your dog at your campsite, so he can relax in the shade when he’s tired of playing. Before bringing your pet home, check him for ticks and give him a nice bath to clean up any dirt he’s carried home.
