hey may be man's best friend, but for unprepared owners, dogs may not be good hiking companions.
Fido may not like the trek, either.

Here are the 10 essentials the Society recommends for a hike with a dog:
• Collar or Harness
• Identification Tag or Microchip
• Collapsible Bowl
• Plastic Bags or Small Spade
• Canine First Aid Kit
• Reflective Jacket, Collar, Leash, or a Small Light
