Default Camping

We're going camping at the end-ish of November and we're taking the 2 young dogs (guess I can't call them pups anymore since they're almost 2! ).

What are some good things to bring? Share your lists of what you bring when you bring your dog/s on trips!

Crate
Food
Toys
Treats
Water, yes I said water because anywhere you go and use the water may upset your dog's stomach.
Doggy toothbrush
Doggy toothpaste
Dog Comb
Extra leashes, one is 16 foot, one is four foot and one is six foot.
Bicycle
Bicycle trailer so that Lola can be a back seat rider

Also for myself I bring my laptop in case their is wireless access. If you have one you might want to do the same so that you can post here any pics from your trip and let us know how your having a wonderful time without us

We actually go back packing, not camping. Since we carry everything on our backs we keep things to a minimum.
doggy first aid kit
food
treats
water
retractable leash (16 foot)
normal 6 ft or 4 ft leash
rain jackets
tie outs and stakes
a rubber squeeky toy

since you are not carrying this all on your back you could bring more stuff. but thats all i ever bring and we stay gone 4 or 5 days at a time.

doggy safe "bug spray" would be:

anything BABY safe
or
home made:
use 1/2 a cup of water 1/2 a cup of rubbing alcohol, and add, about 5 drops of catnip oil (its kinda expensive and unles syou make your own essentials, youll likely have to order it online) and then add other "bug repelant" essential oils untill you get a small you like, lemon verbena, lemon grass, peppermint, teatrea, penny royal, lavender, lemon thyme ect) pick 1 or a couple (peppermint teatree smells yummy and is also good for stings/bites, wounds (teatrea is an antiseptic and peppermint is cooling). lemon is great for repelling bugs and catnip oils is as effective as deet...
you could use just the catnip oil but its not exactly the best smelling of the oils and i like to either do lemon scneted or lavender in there to cut the musky smell of catnip oil.

use in a spritz bottle, its safe for people, babies, and pets!
