Talking Hiking with Fido

Just out of curiosity, how many people go hiking with their dog? When our beagle gets a little older we plan on taking him hiking with us. We even bought him a little Camelbak for dogs

A Camelbak is a backpack with a water resivoire in it. A tube runs from the resivoire, up one of the straps next to the person (or dog's) mouth and has a little dispenser thing that only works when you bite on it.


I take Maddi hiking with me when I actually go. I've always taken her with me (ever since she was 5 months old) and she loves it.

We take Ellie out with a fair frequency, and we have a big trip planned in a few months. She loves being in the woods! Last year, so was only good for maybe an hour and a half before needing a nap, but she was still pretty young. We hope to build her up for longer hikes over the course of this season.

I share my Camelbak will our pup. She's good at catching the stream of water without lapping at the mouth piece. It's really nice not having to lug a bowl around with us when we're on the trails.

Here's the Camelbak that I was talking about.

We also have a collapsable bowl. Now we just have to wait untill he gets a little bit bigger

Now that it's starting to warm up, I'm going to dig Eevee's backpack out of storage... this will be the first year I'll have a chance to hike with her. >^_^< Something I've always wanted to do!
