I call DISCRIMINATION!!!!
Where is the "hiking with cats". Where is "hiking with my parrot". "Care and feeding of my hamster on the trail". "Is filtered water OK for my goldfish while hiking?".

Would love to find a 4-legged friend for camping, hunting and fishing. This twould be great. The furry friend could go to work with me most days as well.
Any day in the outdoors is better than a day at work.

I believe Sarge's Bunker will have a "I don't like dogs and I think they shouldn't be on the trail" section soon.

Be still my heart!!!! Beautiful!!!

I also got my 4-legged friend from the shelter but it was before I got into hiking/camping/backpacking and I did not train him very well so he is rambunctious. I have started working with him because he (naturally) loves being in the woods so I am hoping that he will at least go with me and do good when I am camping in my own woods. We will have to work up to getting to the public places phase.

BTW, Thanks Sarge for starting this thread! I started one on the other forum to get some advice about working with my dog and then it got moved to the "donators only" section so I could not see it anymore. :(

I had been working with him on his leash and around the neighborhood he was doing great. His first campout was the Fairfield hang last year and you'd have thought he'd never been outside before. I couldn't believe how calm he got as soon as I put his pack harness on him. It's like a switch flipped.

Now if we could just get him to go in the water past his knees.....

I'll keep everyone posted, but I'm starting on a dog friendly bug net setup that I hope will allow my pup to sleep under my hammock without all the mosquitos and biting flies. I guess we will find out if all my complex angles were figured correctly.....

My dogs much prefer to pick their own sleeping spots and they have not yet chosen to sleep under the hammock although a hard rain would likely convince them to sleep under the tarp. I'm not sure they even sleep at night in the woods.

Before I started camping with them I worried about mosquitoes. Cold and rain too. But their fur is amazing stuff and seems to handle everything. Except ticks. And heat.

I hike with a pit bull. She has no fat so she gets cold and doesn't have nearly enough fur to protect from insects. She can carry anything you put in her pack though. She also has a waterproof climashield 6.0 jacket to help with the cold.
