When you’re a dog owner, spending time with your furry friend is one of the most rewarding parts about life. Having a dog in my personal opinion is one of the best and most rewarding and fulfilling experiences you can ever have. With their title as mans best friend, they just seem to have a sixth sense about the emotions we are feeling. They always seem to know exactly how to brighten our day or make us smile. Ryan Carter feels the same way about his dog Cooper, and he wanted the world to show their dogs how much they are loved and appreciated. He started the Nashville, TN based company Camping With Dogs. His mission is to inspire people to make long-lasting memories with their dogs instead of leaving them behind during some amazing adventures. Ryan started a Twitter and Instagram account dedicated to the cause of getting dogs out into the wild with their owners, and they both have exploded in popularity. People from all over the world have been submitting pictures of them with their cute canines enjoying the great outdoors together. Dogs of all breeds are featured, and each one seems just as happy as the last to be included in their humans fun times outdoors. These pictures showing the bond between man and his best friend in some of the beautiful settings on earth will have you packing your car and loading up your pup the second you get home.
Nothing like an amazing view to enjoy with your best friend.
This guy gets his very own hammock apparently.
A slice of heaven on Earth. What more do you need?
He still has a bit to learn about camping.
This owner took the proper precautions for his dog. When trekking through rocky terrain such as this, proper footwear for your dog is critical.
“You rock mom, thanks for bringing me!”
How much is that doggy in the tree?
High fives are always in order after reaching a summit.
This may make this dog not want to ever come camping again.
Dogs can also be used to carry some extra gear.
It may not get much better than this right here.
I don’t know if there is any other place in the world this dog would rather be right now.
That smile says more than I ever could.
Sometimes there is nothing better than burying yourself in a sleeping bag. One of them is called the Cat’s Meow ironically.
Much like children, this pup is ready to begin the day WAY before dad.
This fella looks right at home in a snow fort. Such a gorgeous dog.
What a relaxing way to spend some of your time camping with your furry friend.
Sometimes you just can’t help but smother your dog with love.
A dog’s eye view.
Animals really are like our children sometimes.
Now this is awesome! Your dog may be mad at you for a little bit after this however.
Cats are welcome on trips too….but we all know dogs are better.
What an absolutely amazing view to share together!
I really would like to know what is running through this pups head at this moment.
These two are thunder buddies for sure.
No one ever said camping with your dog would be a clean adventure.
Sometimes you just find the perfect spot to take a nap together.
Other times your hammock is hijacked by a big goof ball.
This reminds me of Lady And The Tramp. They look so cute together.
Accomplishing goals with your dog by your side can be extremely rewarding and satisfying.
There are times however, when this is the perfect bonding experience.
The whole crew is here and ready to go.
Apparently this is what happens when your dog gets a hold of your sleeping bag.
They seem willing to share though whenever their human needs a cuddle buddy.
This is an absolutely phenomenal picture. The peace and serenity of this spot seem unmatched and this dog seems to be having a ball paddling around in the crystal blue lake.
The perfect puppy pouch!

The pictures submitted by all these dog owners really show the kind of extensive bond that can be formed with your pooch when you take the time to include them in your adventures. Locking your dog away while you take the trip of a lifetime is no way to treat your four-legged friend that has stuck by you through thick and thin. No, dogs can’t come on every single adventure with you. However, with a little bit of planning and know how you can make many of your trips extremely dog friendly and create so many memories with your furever friend!
