Backcountry Hiking With Your Dog

Just visited the blog at the Mother Nature Network.  My first visit.  I came across this post about hiking with your dog in the backcountry.  The writer Jaymi Heimbuch has some excellent pointers for dog owners.

Now that spring has sprung, many of us have itchy feet to be outside hiking and enjoying the great outdoors. And that goes for our four-legged best friends, too. Hiking safely and responsibly with your dog is a little more involved than just hopping out of the car and setting loose on a trail. This advice will get you ready to tackle the trail with your dog, and teach you how to be socially and environmentally conscious while hiking.
Is your dog ready for hiking?
There are a few things to consider before you head out on the trail with your dog which will guarantee a safe, joyful trek.
