Outside Magazine July 2012


Here are four items that caught my attention in Outside Magazine from July.

1. When you’re packing into a campsite, your dog should carry its own food and water. If you’re in a leave-no-trace area, it should also pack its own waste.

2. Which reminds us: pick up your dog’s poop anytime it’s visible from the trail.

3. Dogs generally overheat much faster than humans. If you’re hungry or thirsty, chances are your dog is, too.

4. If your dog comes when it’s called within two commands, doesn’t chase wildlife, and never jumps on or runs directly at other people, it can be off-leash.

Otherwise, keep it tethered.


I could never resist the call of the trail.
