Camping is the best. Wait. No. Dogs are the best. And bringing your dog camping is even better.

Here at The Dyrt, we have a hard time containing our love for dogs, and we seldom try. That’s why we have a whole page dedicated to the dogs you bring camping.

Since so many of you are bringing your adorable dog-friends to campgrounds, we decided it was about time to put our heads together, do some research, share some stories, and gather the advice and tips that make camping with dogs more fun, safe, and all-around awesome.

The anthology was definitely a scam to get her parents to buy a bunch of anthologies, but she's still pretty proud of her panda poem. When she's not at her computer, she's (hopefully) outside, hiking or camping with her dog.
