Senior dogs rock!
They really do. They’re more chill than their younger counterparts, and they know exactly what they like and don’t like (read: lovingly set in their ways).
Traveling with Ben is a breeze, especially with these senior dog hacks to help him rock the road:
Elevated dog bed
After a long day of hiking & swimming, it’s great to be up off of the dirt & gravel when napping back at camp.
Ben’s version is washable & breathable- plus stackable with his brother’s in the overhead area.
This pack starts out carrying our water bottle, dog treats & phones for a long hike, but sometimes it ends up carrying a cockapoo!
We learned on a 6-miler through beautiful Cook’s Forest that Ben might be starting to need a lift on longer hikes. This K9 Sport Sack fits the bill.
Tie out cable
Ben has always pretended he couldn’t hear us- but now he pretty much can’t! He also can’t see as well as he used to, so if we left him on his own to wander around, who knows where he’d end up!
I can’t resist! Here’s ONE vitamin/supplement we discovered last year that has really upped Ben’s game with NO side effects:
Glacier Peaks Holistic’s Inflapotion
He takes it once a day (usually with peanut butter), and the best way to put it is that it just seems to make him look more comfortable moving. He looks less stiff & hobbly and seems more flexible with better range of motion.
