How to Hike With an Older Dog // Backpacker Magazine

Dogs are the best hiking buddies. Let’s count the reasons: They don’t complain, they can carry their own pack, they won’t make you listen to their bad guitar playing around the campfire, and they won’t make you feel guilty for eating the last bar.
