Dog Camping Etiquette

Unfortunately the amount of campsites that allow furry companions has decreased due to owners who don’t respect other campers. Although it may not be enforced, you have certain responsibilities as an owner.

  • Pick up after your dog
  • Keep your dog on a leash (don’t leash your dog alone outside though)
  • Don’t take an aggressive and uncontrollable dog
  • Ensure there is an ID tag on his/her collar
  • Train your dog beforehand
  • Never leave your dog in a car on it’s own

Other Tips

  • Give your dog regular bathroom breaks, exercise and water during your travels.
  • Offer reassurance so they know they are safe.
  • Take a soft dog bed including some blankets from home.
  • Check for ticks and be attentive to health (us flee/tick collars or repellant).
  • Be on the lookout for snakes in summer and make sure your dog is securely on the leash when bushwalking.

Taking these tips and guidelines into consideration will make your trip much easier and ensure your fellow travels don’t get annoyed. Be a responsible pet owner and respect the campgrounds that have kindly allowed you to stay.
