After adventuring for hundreds of miles with our dogs, we know that having the right gear can make or break a memorable hike or overlanding trip. Not all journeys can be planned out perfectly, so make sure everyone stays comfortable and safe by having versatile dog gear readily available for when adventures call. Stash a go-bag just for your pup, and when the opportunity arises you can easily grab it to head out for some bonding time. Keep a small collapsible dog bowl, environmentally friendly poop bags, yummy dog treats, and other items from our list below.
