Yes have had him on many day trips and am planing to take him on some overnights in 2014
Oh yeh. Hes a lurcher called Blitz and is now 14 months old and bonkers.
Hey folks, I take my Yorkie almost everywhere with me and was looking forward to a bushcraft meet, but none of the meets are allowing dogs onsite, some due to rare breeds on their land others just "no dogs allowed".
Looks like a nomadic summer for me an moi dorg.
If somone knows of a dog friendly meet please let me know.
Another one here that takes their dog pretty much everywhere with them.
Ours is a 3 year old Jack Russell
There have been the odd longer mountain bike rides i've not taken here with me, but other than that if i'm out camping, hiking etc she comes along.
Took a bit of training to get her out of chasing stuff, but once we're away from cars and roads she's 99.9% off lead.
Doesn't harass sheep, ignores most other dogs, trained her to sniff out tortoise and she tends to chase grouse (what can i say i have to let her have some fun), other than that she rarely strays more than 10m from my side.
She sleeps in the tent, cause she's short haired she tends to feel the cold so i usually take a blanket or cover here with one of my coats or jumpers.
If it's really cold then i'll use her as a hot water bottle and she'll sleep in my sleeping bag.
Probably the biggest ball ache is her hairs, anyone that's had a JRT knowns what they're like for moulting.
It does make checking for ticks each night a LOT easier than other dogs i've had though, likewise just a wipe over with a damp cloth is usually enough to clean her off before she comes in the tent.
I take our Border Collie with me walking, and the times I've spent in someone's woods working with the chainsaw he's been there with me but bushcrafting?
Naah, I don't really do any of that, I like in the UK and over here we can't get further than 6.48 miles away from any road.
I'd love to take my guy, but I honestly only rescued him so that my missus would have someone that barks loud when something knocks on the door and I'm away.
I'll be able to take mitchell when I can take the missus but she is a dainty little thing and I'm a behemoth so the idea has been shelfed until we've got her kit she can carry or I get one of them 200L porter packs
She can be a pain. Knocking over stove. Pulling lines out etc. but she doesn't complain she wants to go home.
As Oscar's eyesight continues to get fail he's less comfortable up in the woods but give him an field with the smell of rabbit and will run himself ragged for hours. Now if we could just reach an understanding about sitting under the tarp after I've strung it up and not on it while I'm trying then setting up camp would be a breeze.
