Backpacking with dogs is the best – but it’s a lot different than backpacking with a human friend.

Not only is planning and preparation more complicated, but your time on the trail comes with much more responsibility. You must make sure your dog is properly outfitted, has plenty of food and water, and stays safe on the trail.

Our ultimate guide to backpacking with dogs covers everything you need to know for a safe and fun outdoor trip with your favorite four-legged friend.

What to Bring

Let’s start with gear and equipment. What do you need to pack for a smooth backpacking trip with dogs?

Tarp or Rainfly

Hammock camping in winter…I know it sounds like a crazy idea.

Yet, with the right equipment, adequate preparation, and knowing how to properly set up camp, it’s actually a whole lot of fun.

The key is, of course, staying warm and dry. Select the proper place to pitch your hammock, create a wind and rain/snow block, and then add insulation to accomplish just that.

Buy a tarp or rainfly designed for your specific model of camping hammock if one is available.

Selecting a tarp/rainfly that’s made for your hammock ensures a tight fit to keep out rain, snow, and wind as well as to retain the most heat.
