First, make sure that your dog is ID-tagged in some way. You might want to make a temporary tag with your name and Grampians caravan park accommodation information just in case your dog wanders into the surrounding area. Microchipping is also an effective option. Before you leave, ask your vet about the area where you will be travelling to find out if there are any health risks for your dog. Make sure, also, that your dog is fully vaccinated before you depart – it’s possible that he may encounter unvaccinated animals.
If you’re planning to camp in a Grampians caravan park, the chances are good that it’s summertime – and that means special considerations not just for you, but for your dog, too. Remember that your dog becomes dehydrated just like you, so make sure that you always have plenty of fresh water on hand. You may need to bring your own water supply depending on your destination. A campsite such as Lake Fyans Holiday Park will have plenty of amenities including running water so you can safely pack a little less. Keep in mind that natural fresh water sources may contain bacteria and other harmful organisms, so these may not be suitable for your dog to drink. If you happen to camp during the winter months, be sure to keep your dog comfortably warm, particularly if he has short or thin fur.
In general, you should only take your dog camping with you if you know that he gets along well with people and other dogs. Be sure to keep your dog from annoying other campers, and be on the lookout for any situations you know might upset or provoke your dog so that you can avoid excessive or late-night barking. Take a quality leash with you – one that will hold your dog securely even if he becomes agitated. You should keep your dog on a lead, both for his own safety and the safety of other campers. Do not allow your dog to threaten wildlife, and do not permit him to defecate in or near a source of water. Finally, always clean up after your dog.
