Summer is here, and it's patio season! After doing a hike with the dogs I love to grab a burger or beer and soak up the sun on the patio. Often times its too hot to leave your bestie in the car panting, so what could be better than being able to take him or her on the patio with you in the shade to cool off? A dog's gotta eat and drink too! Check out these city-approved Dog Friendly Restaurant Patios in Salt Lake City - bone appétit!
Check out the 7 Best Dog friendly trails in Moab for you and your pack! Moab, Utah is an outdoor mecca, and gateway to several National Parks and Monuments, including Arches & Canyonlands, and Dead Horse Point State Park. Many people think that because these parks aren't dog friendly, that Moab isn't dog friendly. Listen up hikers - Moab is one of THE friendliest dog towns in Utah. All you have to do is hike outside the national parks, and your pup will be in hiking heaven. There are over 20 hikes that are dog friendly and off leash - I've picked out my favorites listed below.
The BEST Hikes in St.George, Utah are located in Southern Utah, near the Utah/Nevada border. This area offers a mecca of outdoor activities! Hiking, biking, climbing, waterfalls, rock art, petroglyphs, cool rock features, you name it, St.George has it!
I've put together a list of the 9 Items to Keep in Your Dogs First Aid Kit, that you'll actually use! Humans have first aid kits, so why shouldn't your dog? When you are out hiking or camping there's always the possibility of your dog tearing it's paws, getting a dog bite, running into a stick or log, or getting allergies from an insect bite. You could easily buy a first aid kit from the store (and pay a lot of money for it), but making your own Pet First Aid kit is much cheaper, and you can put in the items you will actually use. It doesn't matter what time of year it is, always carry a first aid kit prepped for your furry friend.

It's here - the Ultimate Guide for dog friendly hikes in Escalante, Utah!
Camping & backpacking with dogs is really enjoyable, but the fun can be ruined if your furry pal is shivering and can't stay warm. Here in Utah, the temperatures can be 90F during the day and drop as low as 30F in the desert, even in the Summer. It doesn't matter if you decided to camp in Moab or in the High Uintas, always be prepared for cold weather camping with your dog, especially since the weather can change so quickly here. After camping and backpacking for 5 years with Charlie, one of the top questions I get is how I keep Charlie warm.
Backpacking with your dog is one of the most enjoyable bonding activities you can do together. Whenever I pull out Charlie's Ruffwear Pack he starts jumping around - he knows that another adventure is around the corner. There's nothing that compares to seeing Charlie's smiling face as he runs free in the back country, then having him snuggle me by the campfire after a long day of hiking and exploring. With the right planning and preparation, your trip will be fun, safe, & memorable!
