If you’re bringing along more than one dog, zip lines are the best way to ensure their leashes don’t tangle (a problem you may experience with anchors or dog cables).
4. Include your campsite number on your dog’s collar.

With a Sharpie marker, write your campsite number on a dog ID tag (which you can buy in bulk) and then attach it to their collar.
5. Take your pup on hikes with a dog carrier backpack.
