Don't forget Fido when you camp out on the beach! Most beaches that allow dogs in the campgrounds require them to be leashed at least some of the time. Look for a good quality leash or harness that will withstand the rigors of beach camping, like gritty salt water and sand. Most outdoor gear shops feature pet accessories too, such as pet buoyancy jackets, reflective collars, and plastic collars that are waterproof.
You might want to take along special bowls for pet food and water, too. To keep them from ending up full of sand instead of kibble, take along a plastic place mat or foil pan to set them in, so they are safe from sand and seawater.
Most dogs love the beach, so take them along on your next beach camping excursion. With the right outdoor gear, they'll have just as much fun as the rest of the family.
