Our beloved family member Sierra is the inspiration behind C'Mere Dog. Sierra traveled several thousands of miles with our family, from the sandy beaches of California, to the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. There was no adventure too small, and she didn't need a reason to get in the truck. Sierra's sideways head tilt told us that she knew exactly what we were saying each time we said "C'Mere Girl, Let's Get In the truck" or "C'Mere Girl, Let's go to the beach".
We hope you enjoy C'Mere Dog, and we hope that it inspires you and your dog to always seek the next great adventure together, even if it's just a stroll down the street.
Richard, Lina, Vanessa, Elizabeth.....and Rio too.
Tips from Max:
Helpful Camping Tips For You and Your Awesome Dog:
Determine if your dog is prepared. With varying wildlife, additional hazards and new surroundings, a trained dog will make your camping experience much safer. If your dog is still a puppy or you fear he might not be able pay attention to your commands among all the amazing natural surroundings, it might be best to bolster his training before leaving for an overnight camping excursion.
Make Sure Your Dog's Vaccines Are Up to Date
Before you hit the campsite, make sure that your dog's rabies vaccine is current, as she may meet up with a wild animal in the woods. You should also make sure your pet is taking preventative medication that protects against fleas, ticks and heartworms.
Pack the Right Supplies
In order to be on the safe side, you should pack a first aid kid when you go camping. This kit should include items such as rubbing alcohol, antiseptic wipes, tweezers, gauze and bandages. It's also important for you to bring enough water for your whole family, including your pet. If your dog is well hydrated, he is less likely to drink from dirty puddles or other potentially contaminated sources.
Leash Your Dog
By keeping your dog on a leash during walks on the trails, you can help to protect her from plants, animals and elements that you may encounter along the way. But be sure to pack one that's the right length! Longer leashes can potentially get wrapped around trees or bushes, which can pose a danger to you and your furry friend.
Check for Ticks
These nasty critters tend to land on dogs that bound through the woods, so you should get into the habit of examining your pet on a daily basis. "Check the armpits, groin, folds of skin and around the ears, and if your dog has floppy ears, lift them up and check underneath," explains Max. You should also comb out your dog's coat to remove bits of dirt, burrs and other debris.
Put contact information on your dog
Dogs are curious creatures and even the most well-behaved dog can take off from a campsite. Make sure your dog is microchipped with your current information since ID tags can come off. Your vet can insert the microchip in just one short office visit.
