New Mexico Dog Camping by EvanCurtis



Dog Accessories & Gear for Adventurous Pups




Pet Harness

A harness is more secure than a collar, keeping pets safe and comfortable while leashed. The Ruffwear Front Range Harness (pictured) is for everyday use. It is padded for comfortability, has two leash attachment points, reflective trim, an ID pocket, and comes in a variety of colors. For avid hikers, rough terrains, or dogs who may need assistance throughout trails, the Web Master Harness is durably built for lifting and assisting our pups. 



Pet Pack

If you’re going to be exploring far from the campsite, it’s best to go prepared. The OneTigris Dog Pack makes it easy to split the load with your pal. Throw in a small first aid, water, collapsible food bowls, snacks, or even toys!




Sport Sack

So maybe we are more of the adventurous ones with our pets being more than happy to tag along. The K9 Sport Sack makes it possible to bring your companions along wherever you may go! 


K9 Water Bottle

Hydration is essential on hikes, walks and especially in hot temperatures. The Pup Flask is portable, providing a quick drink when needed. 



Collapsible Bowls

Portable food and water containers make getting a snack and drink super easy along the way. These collapsible dog bowls are perfect for on-the-go.




Hands-Free Leash

Hands-free leashes are best for runners, hikers, or those training their dog. The SparklyPets Hands-Free Dog Leash absorbs shocks with an easy grip control handle. Similarly, the FURRY BUDDY Hands Free Dog Leash (pictured) features a belt with a water bottle holder and zippered pouch for necessities.



Dog Sleeping Bag

Ruffing– I mean, roughing it for the night? Keep your pooch warm and comfortable in a dog sleeping bag for a night under the stars.




Flotation Device

Even if your dog’s a great swimmer, it’s a good idea to put a life jacket on them during any water excursion. The Outward Hound Dog Life Jacket and the RUFFWEAR Dog Life Jacket are both popular due to their highly visible material in the water, adjustability, and design– helping dogs swim in their natural position. They also include a rescue handle.




Floatation Device

The O’Brien Neoprene Pet Life Vest is also a notable reference. The material is thin and not super bulky, perhaps being  a better option for pets who dislike having anything on them. Even so, be sure to try a life jacket on your dog before boating or swimming to ensure it fits snuggly. Pull up on the back handle and gently lift, making sure that if you have to pull your pet out of the water, they will not slip out of it. 




Pet Stroller/Bike Trailer

Attach the Aosom Elite-Jr 2-in-1 to your bike as a bike trailer or attach the front wheel and handle for a stroller. Take your dog along to pet friendly beaches, hiking paths, or around town. The best part– it folds for storing!



Cold Weather Wear

Sweaters and vests are adorable, however, if you are going to be hiking and exploring the wilderness, something durable is ideal. At the same time, skip the cute bells and whistles because they can get caught on branches along the way.

The RUFFWEAR Climate Changer is an abrasion-resistant, fleece-lined jacket, built with durable materials for active dogs. Wind and water-resistant outer fabric protects against hard elements while the fleece lining keeps your pet’s body heat in. For extremely cold weather conditions, go for RUFFWEAR’S Furness Jacket (pictured).  



Warm Weather Wear

For hot summer days, the RUFFWEAR Swamp Cooler vest keeps your dog nice and cool– thanks to its water-activated system. Simply add cold water and wring out. The three-layer design pulls heat from your dog while the light-colored fabric reflects solar radiation.



Dog Booties

Protect paws as pups explore rough terrain, snowy paths, or experience hot asphalt. 



Dog Goggles

If your dog will rock these Dog Goggles, they’d be the coolest canine prancin’ through the campground! 




Seat Protection

Odds are, you’ll be bringing an adventured-out pup back to camp. Protect your seats from fur, mud, and scratches with the BarksBar Original Pet Seat Cover. It is designed for many standard backseats and is made of heavy-duty waterproof polyester.
