Why it’s good to take your dog camping

Pitchup’s Managing Director, Dan Yates, explains why camping is good for your dog.


Dan says: “Just like humans, dogs need to stay active. One of the best ways to ensure your dog stays fit and healthy is to get them outdoors and moving around, which is where camping comes in. A camping trip with your dog offers a slew of opportunities for your dog to experience exciting new things, while providing exercise in a fun way.”

New environment

Dogs love new things. A camping trip introduces your dog to completely new environments and sensory experiences. From new smells to new sights, new animals and new people, all of these new environments will stimulate your dog, tiring them out mentally as well as physically.”


“Camping is a great environment to train your dog on skills such as socialising with others, obedience and discipline (not to chase after wildlife etc). Just make sure you teach these lessons on the lead, or in a dedicated exercise area for safety.”

De-stress your dog

“As well as providing humans with an opportunity to relax, camping is also a great de-stressor for our furry friends. Spending less time on your phone and forgetting about the hustle and bustle of everyday life will help you to feel more relaxed, which can have a knock-on positive effect on your dog. Not to mention how relaxed they’ll feel after all the extra exercise.”


“Nothing brings you and your dog together like a camping trip. Being away from everyday distractions and out in the beautiful wilderness with your furry friend will strengthen your bond with one another.”
