I got my pup last fall and he has become the center of my universe. We have gone on a number of hikes over the winter. He is already a great trail companion. This weekend, we are heading out on our first of many overnighters. It should be cold at night. This has brought about a consideration followed by others. For those hikers with dogs: In colder weather, is some kind of ground insulation needed? I do some hiking in desert country. Generally speaking, how do dogs react toward the warning of a rattle snake? Does anyone have a good recommendation on dog packs? BTW, he is a labrador retreiver mix with goofball.
