As any dog owner knows, the joy of having your four-legged friend by your side in the great outdoors is unparalleled. However, ensuring a safe and enjoyable camping trip with your dog requires thoughtful preparation and the right gear. In our latest post, we’ve created a list of the best camping gear for dogs in 2024 so you can pack the must-have gear that will keep your pet comfortable, secure, and happy throughout your outdoor journey. Whether you’re a seasoned camper or a first-timer, these tips and recommendations will help you create an unforgettable camping experience for both you and your loyal companion!
The Kuma team is all about accessible, high-quality camping gear for dogs and humans alike, and we want to make sure it’s super-easy for dogs to go with their humans on all their adventures.
So, what’s on our must have list for gear to bring along with you on your next camping adventures with your pup?
Soggy Dog Collar
During a camping trip, it’s almost guaranteed that you and your pooch might get a little damp (hello, dips in the lake!). However, that wet collar smell can sure be ripe!
First up on our camping gear checklist? The Soggy Dog Collar.
Smell-proof, BPA-free, and super stylish, the Soggy Dog is made of silicone, which helps counteract moisture and keep that area as odour free as possible. The mountain print on the collar is also reflective, which is great for those twilight walks.
Adjustable and available in small, medium, and large sizes, the Soggy Dog has a Rock Lockster® buckle and lightweight D-ring. Perfect for keeping an eye on your pup during those nighttime campfires.
Kuma 3-in-1 Dog Leash
Effective camping gear for dogs needs to be convenient, and that’s just what came to mind when we added our 3-in-1 Dog Leash to the list.
Extra durable, the leash material is polyester rock climbing rope, at a generous 5.5 feet long. Included as well in the leash set are a matching doggy bag dispenser with bags and collapsible silicone water dish with a 450ml capacity. Perfect for those long journeys between campsites!
It’s worth mentioning that even if you aren’t camping with your pooch, an easily accessible water dish can make all the difference on those hot summer days when you’re at the beach, running errands, or just out for a stroll.
Good Dog Treat Pouch
We think that our Good Dog Treat Pouch is the perfect combination of sustainability and efficiency. Treat pouches are reusable, and super handy to bring with you on the go.
The Good Dog Treat Pouch keeps your dog’s treats fresh and minimizes mess - perfect for when you’re on the go. The drawstring pouch’s interior material is sturdy nylon, and the exterior material is polyester. Both fabrics are easy to clean and water-resistant (although not waterproof).
The pouch also has a convenient exterior doggy bag pocket, and a belt clip or a handy carabiner to allow for ideal hands-free transport.
While our 3-in-1 Dog Leash includes a small silicone water dish, it’s good to have a sturdy, larger water dish to leave at the campsite too.
BPA-free, our collapsible Silicone Bowl is made, of course, of silicone, a germ-resistant material - which is perfect for longer trips.
The bowl also includes a handy carabiner, perfect for quick storage on duffle bags or backpacks or to hang conveniently within reach inside your RV.
Lazy Bear Dog Bed
Cushy and cozy, the Lazy Bear Dog Bed is the convenient, dog-sized cousin of our Lazy Bear Chair, so you both can have a matching, extra-comfy chair by the campfire!
The Lazy Bear can accommodate up to 175lbs and don’t fret about accidents or odours either; the Lazy Bear Dog Bed comes with a removable, washable padded cushion and mesh bottom for easy cleaning!
With three colour options, the chair material is made of durable polyester, with a carry bag included for convenience.
Lazy Bear Dog Blanket
A companion to our Lazy Bear Dog Bed, the Lazy Bear Dog Blanket can be used inside your RV, on the ground outside or can be attached directly onto the Lazy Bear Dog bed using the convenient clips attached to the blanket.
With plush, soft microfibre polyester top material and rip-stop polyester base material, this blanket offers both longevity and premium comfort both off-and-on the Dog Bed. Bonus - we’ve included a convenient stuff bag too!
The Bottom Line
