Where are you going that you think coyotes may be an issue? I live in the north west US and our coyotes tend to be small and usually keep their distance, however there are other places in the US and Canada where they're larger and more aggressive so my experiences may differ from what you'll encounter.
How is your dogs recall around wildlife? or will he be kept on leash? Loose dogs can sometimes attract problems so it's something to keep in mind.
Our "city" coyotes can be habituated enough to human activity to be something of a nuisance and on rare occasions be a real problem. Out in the sticks coyotes tend to be more wary and keep their distance or at least that's been our experience. If you are going somewhere other hikers have encouraged interaction, fed them, or left food unsecure you may find coyotes that have associated people with food. Keeping a clean camp, tying your food supply up and out of reach and you'll likely minimize the potential for encounters. Bear spray and perhaps a boat horn would be worth taking along. Hope you have a good trip!
