Essential Hiking Gear for Dogs: A Guide

Proper hiking gear is essential for your dog's safety and comfort during outdoor adventures. It includes leashes, collars and other supplies.

Hiking Gear

Comfortable and sturdy leashes are crucial for hiking. Options like Chai's Choice, Shed Defender, and Tuff Mutt offer varying lengths and features for different needs.


Collars should be visible and secure. Harnesses provide safe control during walks. GoTags and Chai's Choice offer personalized, reflective, and waterproof options.

Hiking Collars

Hiking vests provide visibility in various conditions. Night lights, like Nite Ize SpotLit and Lightvise Universal, ensure visibility during dark hikes.

Hiking Vests

Depending on the hike, you may need travel water dishes, food containers, sun gear, booties, a GPS tracker, a first aid kit, and a travel bed for your dog.


Backpacks like Outward Hound DayPak and EzyDog Summit allow your dog to carry their own supplies, lightening your load and giving them a sense of responsibility.
