8 Essentials For Fido's Trip to the Park + Giveaway

As much as I hate to see summer end I am looking forward to cooler temps. New England Fall weather is beautiful, you can still enjoy the warm sunshine but with the cool, crisp air and most importantly the foliage is breathtaking.

One of our favorite things to do with the Goldens is taking trips to our favorite dog-friendly parks. They love exploring fun trails and different scents while we enjoy just being outside in nature with them.

Today we thought we would share a list of essentials items we always take along with us to the park. With the hurricanes that have devastated Texas, Florida and beyond the past few weeks we all know how important it is to be pet-prepared when disaster strikes. The same goes for when you are headed out to your local dog-friendly park, it's better to be prepared and safe than sorry.

8 Essentials For Fido's Trip to the Park

1. Collar/ID Tags
The Goldens almost always have their collars on with their up-to-date tags attached. That along with being microchipped is a safe practice in the event that your dog gets away from you and lost.

2. Leash
Seems like common sense but if you only knew how many times we've hit the road and realized we forgot the leashes. lol Even if you are going to an off-leash park, it's always best to have one in case you need it. The Goldens are always leashed, the chipmunk temptation is just too much for them to handle.

3. Insect Repellent
The first thing I do when we get to the park is wipe the Goldens down with Flea + Tick wipes. Although we treat them monthly, I like to have a little extra protection. A few years ago we tried Pet Naturals of Vermont brand and we have been using them ever since.

4. Camera/Phone
Yes, we always have our phone with us to take pics but I still like to use my dslr camera. There is nothing better than taking photos of your dog with nature as your backdrop.

5. Treats/Water
After all that exploring and posing for photos, we always make sure to stop for a water break. If we are going to be out for an extended period of time I will bring along some treats as well.

6. Poop Bags
You know what happens after they have had their snack. Be prepared for when nature calls to scoop their poop!

7. Brush/Comb
Once we head back to the car I like to quickly run a brush through the Goldens coat to remove any leaves, twigs or heavens forbid - ticks!

8. Cargo Liner
If your dog is anything like ours, they like to get dirty while exploring. They will step in any puddle they can find, attempt to go in the water if there is any and they are famous for digging holes! The last thing I want to do after leaving the park is clean the car, this is where a cargo liner comes in handy!

It fits all vehicles with headrests and has adjustable straps to easily put on and off. It also has seatbelt slots, seat anchors and a non-slid backing to stay in place.

When we travel, the Goldens go in the cargo area of our Chevy Tahoe and as you can see this cargo cover is plenty big enough for all three of them to comfortably fit on.
