We camp all the time with our pup. He is 6.5 months now and he is so worn out by the time nighttime comes, he sleeps like a baby. Two weekends ago, he barked a little more than usual at people passsing by, but we have been working on his reactivity at home. We go on multiple short hikes, lake swims, campfires...During camping is when our pup gets to eat stuff he isn't allowed at home. We'll fry him an egg to add to his morning kibble, campfire hotdogs, and steak! We had a bear in our camp last year that sniffed around and left (Yikes!)...we didn't have any food out. Since then, we always carry bear spray (and a gun!). Where I live, mountain lions have been seen taking off dogs from camp sites. I never leave our dog unattended ever.
Have fun! It is so great camping with a dog!!
