Thanks to everyone for the suggestions and advice on hiking and camping with your dog. I have just gotten back from a week long trip in the North Carolina mountains around Linville Falls. We hiked 5-8 miles a day and BB loved every minute of the trip! We trained before to make sure she could handle the distance and I found a great harness the worked well to lift her over rocky areas. Enjoy the pics!
Its so fun to take your dog with you almost everywhere you go. Fletcher is happy to spend the day on the water or laying on the sofa. I think its my favorite thing about cavaliers, that and all the cuddles.
