When I first started thinking about getting a dog, I knew that I wanted a companion who could come along with me on hikes. I thought a lot about the physical characteristics I’d want – and kinda overlooked the mental elements.
Most healthy dogs will take a long walk with you. Not every dog is cut out to be a camping buddy, with its discomforts, intrusions by other people – and wildlife – and often unpredictable weather.I knew Max had the legs and stamina to keep up with me on a camping trip. But would she enjoy it?
