Peanut is my most trusted and helpful travel companion and he never complains about anything. To say he is always ready to go is an understatement. Peanut is ALWAYS ready to go. There, that’s more accurate. Because I value him as I do all of my family members, I want the best for him when it comes to food and treats. Peanut has been with me for about 2 1/2 years now and he works hard to keep me safe and happy. I’ve yet to see him when he’s not shaking his little tail. There are very few photos I’ve taken where I can’t actually see his tail because it’s always wagging. Peanut is happy and healthy and it’s my responsibility to keep him that way.

No matter how bad of a pain day I’m having he can make me lol by being silly. He’ll start running around in circles, chasing his tail and just being silly until I’m laughing so hard I can’t stop. He can sense everything that is going on with me, from happy to sad, from pain to stress, from being tired to having a bad day. Peanut is with me 24/7 and he is tireless. He takes his role in my life very seriously and I love to reward him with his favorite treats, specifically Purina® Beggin’ Strips. He loves having his belly rubbed so he gets lots of belly rubs as well.

With summer upon us, we do a lot of traveling. I wanted to share a tutorial on how to pack for a day of hiking with your pet. Before you go anywhere, make sure you have your pet’s health certificate and identification tag with you at all times. You never know what could happen and it’s better to have it handy. I also always make sure I know where a vet in the area is before we travel.

Before we get into your gift card redemption, because we all know how quickly the delicious dog food goes, I wanted to share a tutorial on how to pack for a day of hiking with a pet.

My favorite PetSmart is in Albany, Georgia. I wish I could nominate them for some type of special event. Everyone there is super fun and that always makes my trip all the more special. Yes, that’s an employee photo bomber in the background, lol. He was cracking me up the entire time I was taking the photo making my visit another memorable experience.

  2. Dogs are always up for a treat! These are great pointers and tips. When we get a dog we can’t wait to take him hiking!

  3. You’re pet is so cute. He’s so lucky to have you as his owner. That’s great to hike with your four-legged friend.

  5. This is a great list of things to pack when hiking with your pets. It is so important I believe to have a photo on hand just encase you get cerebrated from your pet. The extra water is also a good one with the treats. Thanks for sharing the list. Your Peanut is so adorable.

  6. These are really great tips! I love that you put in a picture of your dog – so important if they get loose – and we just LOVE Beggin’ Strips!

  12. Whilst I do not have a pet it was enjoyable learning about what to carry for your pet and some great suggestions too

  13. This is such a great list, Sal and I used to love taking off into the wilds and walking for ages, neither of us can manage it so well these days, but it is still great to get out.

  14. Pets are bolts of energy on hiking trips since the outdoor is their natural habitat. It would important to bring ample amount of dog food for them to replenish their energy.

  15. I would never have thought of taking these things along! That is a really helpful list. I buy a lot of Purina, so I’d better get there in June!

  16. These suggestions and tips are really great. Nice article

  17. These are great pointers. We have never taken our dogs for a hike yet, just walks. I’ll keep this in mind when we take our dogs.

  19. Back when we had a dog, he loved Beggin strips!! They were his favorite treat. We always make sure we have some around.
