If you decide to take your dog camping, you have to seriously ask yourself a simple question first: is my dog well-trained and able to be in the midst of people? If the answer is yes, you are on the right track; if it is no, you had better do something about it and think of targeted training.
You cannot bring your trusty friend camping with you if you are afraid that it may bark all night long, bite children, adults or other dogs, run away or not respond to commands. Good behaviour is a condition without which it is better for you to think of a good pensioner, a family member or a trusty friend to take care of your 4-legged friend while you are away.
In many facilities dogs must be leashed and muzzled, and there are areas where they are not allowed to go, such as restaurants, toilets or pools. Before booking your camping holidays with your dog, read the internal regulation carefully and ask for detailed information in order to avoid discovering unexpected prohibitions too late.
When you choose to immerse yourself in nature, you naturally tend to let your dog feel free and enjoy a holiday in total relaxation, but remember that it may disturb the others and get into trouble if it has a curious character and is often a wanderer. For this reason, make sure that it is always near your pitch or lodging, perhaps by using a leash or a small fence.
