6 Must-Have Gadgets For Camping With Pets

Updated: Feb 1

Juniper Rose Camper Rentals knows that no camping trip is complete without every member of your family, including your fur babies. Therefore, you will never have to experience the guilt of leaving your pet at home while on vacation again. Our pet-friendly camper is ideal for road trips to Yellowstone National Park and other iconic sights across North America.

Camping with your pets is 100 percent doable as long as the proper tools are gathered and safety precautions are enforced. In this blog post, we will review some of the must-have gadgets you need to have a successful camping trip with your pets.

Accessories & Gadgets You Will Need When Camping With Your Pets

Collapsible Food & Water Bowls

Collapsible Tupperware is a gamechanger for camping. It is portable, easy to clean, and does not take up much space in the camper kitchen. We highly recommend picking up a separate set for your pets since they are also handy on boating and hiking trips.

Cozy Pet Bed

Of course, your pet needs a comfortable and safe space to rest on long road trips. Memory foam beds like the one linked have grown popular over the last few years. They are very cozy yet can be on the more expensive side. However, you can also bring your pet’s bed from home to help relieve any travel anxiety they may experience.

Flea & Tick Shampoo

Pets can quickly find themselves in messy situations when in the great outdoors. Whether they roll around in the grass or swim in the lake, your pets will likely need a bath while camping. Although, it is vital to find a shampoo formula that protects against fleas and ticks since your pet will be spending so much time outdoors. We also suggest packing pet-friendly wet wipes to use in between baths. Besides, who wants muddy paw prints all over their camper?

Interactive Toys

It is common for pets to become restless or agitated when traveling. There is a myriad of different toys available on the market, and we suggest trying a few out at home to see what types your pet prefers. Interactive pet toys like puzzle feeders and electronic laser pointers are excellent options for keeping our furry friends entertained on the road.

Pet First Aid Kit

Packing a quality first-aid kit is essential for any camping trip, especially when traveling with your fur babies. Several online retailers, including Amazon.com and Chewy.com, offer tailor-made first aid kits for pets. We suggest finding one that includes tick remover (such as the kit linked above) since bites are prevalent in heavily wooded areas.

Portable Outdoor Dog Pen

When traveling with pets, particularly dogs, you must provide them with a safe area to play outside. Many campsites around the nation feature enclosed dog parks on the grounds, but there is no guarantee. Thus, having a portable dog pen will make your life so much easier since it can accommodate any form of camping. Try to find a foldable pen since they are simple to store in your trailer. Plus, they are available in various shapes and sizes to cater to a wide range of dog breeds.
