     A collar is good, and so are leashes but a harness is even better for hiking because it reduces the stress on your dog's neck and back.

     It's always a scary, "what if" thought. But, it can happen. Dogs do get lost. So it's super important that your dog is wearing a very clear i.d tag. It's also smart to have a picture of them too, just incase.

    It's the right thing to do, and it's actually the the law in most places. Also bring a couple of gallon Ziploc bags to put the full waste bags to help keep the rest of your hike smell free.

    Yes, yes. Super cute, super stylish and very practical! Sure it may seem strange, since dogs are usually barefooted all the time. But hiking is another story. Sharp rocks and rough grounds. Who knows if there is class around, or the ground might be super hot or even freezing!
