Dog hiking gear reviews: our favorite leashes, bowls, dog backpacks, harnesses and sleep gear

We’re huge fans of hiking with our pup, Jake; in fact, he’s on nearly every trail adventure whenever we venture out. From the best dog-friendly trails near Atlanta to our favorite Georgia hikes with dogs, the South offers many great options for an adventure with your adventure buddy on four paws. We’ve covered literally thousands of miles with Jake, and have tested some really great dog hiking gear, from easy-clip-in leashes and collars to safety gear and fun trail and campsite-friendly toys.

Exercise is great for our canine friends, and even a daily walk on a trail at a neighborhood park helps satisfy their curiosity and help prevent boredom. Before you head out on your adventure, be sure to pack a good leash, plenty of water, a packable water dish, and some treats to help keep your pup comfortable, safe, and secure on the trail. Our dog hiking gear reviews feature our favorite canine-friendly goods, from great leashes and collars to water dishes and treats, and some great gear like backpacks, harnesses, and even cooling vests to help keep your pup cool in the South’s warm climate.
