What to Pack
Packing for your dog can be fairly simple if you stay organized. Try to think about activities you will both be doing during your expedition. Pack the appropriate items you’ll need such as old towels to dry off after swimming or a portable water bowl for trail hiking.
Also calculate how much food to pack based on the duration of your trip. Be sure to look up any local stores nearby where you can pick up extra supplies if needed.
Your Off Grid Trailer will no doubt provide the extra space you’ll need to store the extra pet supplies you’ll need to bring along.
Use the following checklist to make sure you haven’t missed packing any essential items for your companion. Many of these items can be purchased at your local pet store or on Amazon.com or Chewy.com.
- Portable food and water bowls (for inside, outside, and collapsible for hikes)
- Food and treats
- Any medications your pet needs
- Poop bags
- Portable crate
- Pet first aid kit
- A long leash, shorter leash, or hands-free leash
- Old towels
- Dog booties (if they will wear them)
- Dog brush and comb
- Tick removal kit
- Extra collar
- Cozy bed and blanket for your trailer
- Favorite toys
- A comfortable outdoor mat
- Pet-friendly sunscreen
- Hiking pack
It’s absolutely critical to make sure you have enough water for yourself and your pup. This is where your Off Grid Trailer can make things a bit easier. The Expedition 2.0 holds 31 gallons of water while the Pando 2.0 holds about 33 gallons to give you access to potable water when you need it.
There’s no doubt your dog will enjoy every second of your overlanding adventure. Not only will it give you companionship while off grid, your bond will grow even stronger as you look out for one another in the wild.
