Default First time camping with Titan... Help!

We just planned a 3 day camping trip in the beginning of November and we can take Titan! I'm so excited but now I'm starting to think of things to bring and thought maybe I'd hit y'all up for advice.

Decided we need to get a soft kennel for him.. But what brand is best? I think the weather should be chilly by then so not too worried about it being too hot. He will enjoy the cooler weather.

I have travel bowls and food dispensers.. Doggy bags.. Tugs.. Treats..

Anything I haven't mentioned that you think would be good to bring or have?

I'm excited but kinda nervous. He's good with crowds and gatherings with people.. And other dogs too. But I worry if I have to leave him for a few minutes in his kennel he'll bark at people outside the tent. Or if on the evenings when we're in our tent he'll bark at the people passing by our site.. And not settle.

Any advice there?

Thanks in advance!

Exciting ! We took Rocky camping in Florida last fall and had a blast !
One thing we did do , was have an extra tag made up for his collar with both my husband's cell number and mine. Also brought along a first aid kit for him.
Enjoy!

I have one of these for both dogs, super easy to set up: FIRSTRAX

Shop around for the best price. The biggest one is HUGE, both Dena and Keefer could fit in there!

I looked at those but it looked like it only went up to 36" and a 70 lb dog.. does that sound right? Or maybe I need to look more.. titan is 90 lbs and not sure about height to be honest.

The "up to 90 pounds" one is pictured above. And in that photo it's more like 150 pounds of combined dog!

Yes, great quality. I rarely use that one since we don't take Keefer places that require crating very often, but Halo uses hers (the next size down) at flyball practice every weekend.

I actually climbed into the crate with Keefer once and there was plenty of room for both of us. Sadly, no pictures.
