Default What do you bring when you take your dog somewhere?

When you take your dog somewhere for a day trip (like to the park or a trial or some other sort of event)...what do you make sure to bring for them?

I'm trying to put together a "dog bag" - one that's always stocked with the essentials so I can just grab it and go whenever Jack and I are going places. Right now, I usually just end up stuffing things in my purse, and I always forget something. Today at Walmart I bought a bag that's going to be designated as my "dog bag".

So far I have:

Treats
Treat Pouch
Clicker
Water Bottle
Bowl
Copy of Rabies Certificate
Dog First Aid Kit

Can anyone think of anything else?

I bring poop bags, a frisbee/chuckit, and a string cheese. Everywhere we go has a water source. (: and my dogs have their licenses, I've never thought to bring a rabies cert.

Bwahahaha I am a gear bag junky!

All things necessary for all the sports I do:


Flyball:


Schutzhund:


Agility/General training:


Extras we keep in the car at all times (jumper cables, crocs, first aid kits, sunscreen, bug dope, extra toys, loads of tennis balls and poop bags):


Each bag photo can be clicked on and it will go to the original, with a list of what I keep in each bag. Otherwise, HERE are all of the pics from those bags. I *just* bought a smaller bag for dog shows - it has a UKC show collar/lead, an SV/USA show collar/lead, a ball, spray conditioner to make coats shiny, my dremel, an undercoat rake, a small paddle brush and mat detangler goo, poop bags...etc LOL I am an organizational freak

ETA: I also have a binder with pics of my dogs side and head shot and copies of all of their records (registration papers, rabies cert, shot records, microchip info etc) and I make and keep "quick cards" with that info that stay in my purse. Oh, and I have chairs and a cooler I take too...and a water bag for when we go swimming that has Wubbas and a shammy in it...and poop bags! Water and water and more water, the Chuckit lives in the car as do at least 2 leashes per dog.

Wow FG... I don't know whether to be impressed or scared.

LOLJK, I'm so jealous of your sweet, organized sport bags!!! I need to do something like that. I forget at least a few necessary items every time I go to classes/trials. Erytime!

I usually bring the dog... sometimes treats. Oh and the poop bags are attached to the leash so I can't forget them and a camera.

Not as organized as FG but close - I have separate bags for agility, obedience, scootering, tracking and 'goin' to Gramma's'. All have their own toys, poop bags, leashes, collars, water bottles, bowls, treats, treat bags and whatever else is specific to that activity. Since I'm usually on a tight schedule, it's a lot easier to just grab the necessary bag (and dog) and run.

I have a separate file for the dogs' med records, photos, etc (rather than filing them with the general household receipts) but I like the 'quick card' idea to carry with me. Sometimes I'll get emails at work about dog activities/shows/lessons and while I carry copies of vaccination records, I keep forgetting the ID numbers (such as Riley's Canine Partner # and/or his Mixed Breed Club #).
