Essential Dog Gear for Outdoor Adventures

Your dog likes adventure as much as you. And just like you, pups can get hurt, dehydrated, too cold and too hot. With the right gear and know-how, these problems can be avoided.

Before you head out, find out if dogs are allowed or if they need to be leashed. You should also make sure that Fido is physically fit and able to take on whatever excursions you're planning. If a long, steep hike is on the itinerary, you should probably leave your older pooch at home. But if you have a high energy pup or are exploring an easier trail, by all means, bring them along. Just be sure to bring the right dog gear.

We've rounded up the essential gear that man's best friend needs to have fun and stay safe on his next outdoor adventure.
