  Taking my 4.5 month old beagle puppy for a camping trip?
Hello

Im taking my beagle puppy camping on a 4 day 3 night trip. Its not too hot but there are all kinds of trails. I was wondering if anyone ever took there puppy camping and hiking and how it was like?
I take him for walks everyday so he wont be to tired during the hikes.
Any advice? My puppy can handle the hikes right?

any advice/help would be appreciated. Thx

Whatever you do don't let him off the leash. In a new environment he may pick up a scent and take off and not be able to find his way back to you.
Yes, he should be able to handle the hikes, just keep lots of water available. You can always carry him if he gets tired.

I take mine to the beach for a week. She loves the beach, just hangs out in her little tent and whenever anybody walks by she walks down to the shoreline to meet them.
We go to Outer Banks so there's not alot of people on the beach otherwise she would be bothering everybody.

One thing you should do is get him some obedience training. Ours had training and they use the clicker method and now a few years later she will still drop everything and come running when she hears the clicker.

You may want to take a good metal whistle with you. Let him hear it alot before you go so he knows what the sound is. That way if he gets away somehow you can keep blowing the whistle and hopefully he can follow the sound.
