Packing with a canine companion can be a wonderful experience and an excellent opportunity to get away from the routines and scenes of daily life. Most dogs love the opportunity to get out and enjoy the sights and scents of the trail. Owners often find that they enjoy the outing even more as they see the hike from a canine perspective. With their keener senses, dogs can "point out" interesting features or animals that their people might otherwise overlook.
