Mastering Dog-Friendly Campground Etiquette

At Kiesler's, we believe that camping trips are made even better with our furry friends by our side. Whether you got a new puppy over the winter, you're a new camper or a veteran camper, we want to remind you of essential camping etiquette with dogs to ensure a fun, safe, and respectful experience for everyone.

1. Keep Your Dog on a Leash

Even the most well-behaved dogs can get overly excited by the new smells, sights, and sounds of the campground. Keeping your dog on a leash ensures their safety and respects the space of fellow campers and wildlife.

2. Clean Up After Your Dog

Being a responsible pet owner means cleaning up after your dog. Always carry waste bags and dispose of them properly. Keeping the campground clean ensures a pleasant environment for everyone.

3. Respect Your Neighbors

Do not leave your dog alone to ensure the dog does not bark excessively. The peaceful environment of the campground is something all guests value, and ensuring your dog is calm and content is essential to maintaining that tranquility for everyone.

4. Know Your Dog's Limits

Be aware of your dog's physical and social limits. Not all dogs are comfortable around crowds or other animals, and that's okay. Plan activities that suit your dog's temperament and fitness level.

5. Introduce Your Dog to New Experiences Gradually

Dog-friendly campgrounds are the great for socializing your dog, but be sure to give them time to adjust to their new environment. Start with shorter trips to familiarize them with the experience.

6. Keep Your Dog Comfortable and Safe

Camping can be an adventure for your dog, but it's essential to keep their comfort and safety in mind. Bring along their bed or a blanket, plenty of water, and their favorite toys. Never leave your dog unattended, especially in hot weather.

7. Be Mindful of Wildlife

Some campgrounds are home to various wildlife, and it's crucial to respect their habitat. Keep your dog at a safe distance to prevent any unexpected encounters.
