Do you have that one friend who seems to be on constant outdoor adventures with their dog? Hey, maybe you are that friend! Either way, if you’re looking for gifts for hikers with dogs or ideas for gifts for hiking with dogs, you’ve come to the right place.
The best gifts are items you can use over and over again. Hiking gifts definitely fit the bill. The following gift ideas for hiking dog owners are practical, functional, and fun!
1. COMPACT FIRST AID KIT
Our first gift idea is the most practical. Safety first! You or your pal’s adventure dog is bound to get into some trouble in the backcountry. Whether they get caught in a foxtail or scrape their paw on rough terrain, hiking dog lovers have got to be prepared on the trail. A portable pet first aid kit with items like protection for your dog’s paws (if you don’t have booties), tweezers, saline wipes, etc. is a hiking essential for active dog parents.
2. DOG BACKPACK
Your best friend’s best friend can help carry the load! No hiking gear head with a pup companion is complete without a dog backpack.
