If you're planning a family vacation, you'll no doubt want to bring your dog along to join in the fun. If this is the case, camping vacations are practically made for humans and their furry friends to enjoy together.

Getting out into nature, exploring the wilderness, enjoying a host of outdoor activities and generally having a relaxing time -- these are all experiences you can share with your pooch. Your dog will not only love the chance to embark on an exciting adventure with their people, but it'll also help them feel like an important part of the family.

Here's what you need to do to plan the ideal pet-friendly camping weekend. 

Step
1
Find a campground
The first step is to decide exactly where you want to go, so have a chat with the rest of the family about where they'd like to camp and the experiences they'd like to enjoy when they get there. Once you've got a rough idea of a destination, you can then start searching for a suitable campground. Happily, there are thousands of pet-friendly campgrounds right across the United States, so you shouldn't have any trouble finding and booking a campsite.
Step
2
Planning and packing
When you're camping with your dog, you'll need to remember to pack all the essentials your dog will need for a weekend away as well as all the usual camping supplies. Your dog will need food to eat, somewhere to sleep, toys to play with, and food and water bowls. They'll also need any medication they need to take, and it's a good idea to familiarize yourself with the location of any veterinarians near the campground in case of emergency. Finally, make sure to check whether there are any dog rules at the campground -- such as keeping your dog on a leash or avoiding certain areas -- before you go.
Step
3
Go camping
If you've prepared and planned appropriately, all you have to do now is load up the car and get ready for a fun getaway. Of course, what you do once you've set up camp at your destination is entirely up to where you are and your personal preferences. You might be able to take your dog for a nature walk, go swimming, do some wildlife watching, or just enjoy sitting around the campfire. Just remember to make sure your dog is on their best behavior and to clean up after them whenever necessary.

No matter where you happen to live in this great nation, chances are you won't have to go too far to find an animal rescue or animal welfare group. Often run by volunteers, these paw-some groups work tirelessly to improve the lives of animals in need, whether that means rescuing dogs from death row, offering spay/neuter services or offering a wide range of other essential services.

If you can't volunteer your time to help these organizations out, why not try to raise some funds to help them continue their amazing work?

Many animal rescue and welfare groups run fundraising dog walks to help generate financial support and raise public awareness, and these walks are a simple way for you to lend a helping paw. Here's how.

Step
1
Find a walk
The first thing you'll need to do is research the upcoming charity pet walks being held near you. You might find them listed on local event websites, or by visiting the websites of animal rescue and welfare groups. When you've found a suitable walk, find out what you need to do to sign up and how you can raise funds. For example, will you be donating some money yourself, or can you ask friends and family to sponsor you or make a donation of their own? After paying the registration fee, check out the walk route and mark the relevant date in your calendar.
Step
2
Pound the pavement
When the big day arrives, leash up your canine pal and head to the walk starting point. There, you'll hopefully find crowds of other dog lovers and their furry friends, and a happy, excited atmosphere as everyone prepares to get moving. Your dog will love taking a relaxing and mentally stimulating stroll with you, not to mention the chance to do a bit of socializing along the way. There will often be other pet-themed entertainment and even entire festivals to enjoy once you've completed the walk, so make sure you stick around afterwards to join in the fun.

Is your social media feed full of dogs? Are you constantly browsing the latest posts looking for cute pics of dogs of all shapes, sizes and ages?

If so, you're not alone, and you might be wondering what it would take to turn your Havallon into a social media superstar. Creating a social media account for your dog is a fun and simple way to help your family and friends stay up to date with what you and your pooch are doing. More importantly, it's a paw-some excuse for you and your dog to spend lots of time together.

And if you're lucky, your dog might even get to enjoy 15 minutes of fame...

Step
1
Set up an account
The first step is to open an account for your Havallon on one or more social media platforms. Even if you're something of a technophobe, this is quite quick and easy to do from your smartphone or computer. Simply enter your email address, create a password, enter some basic information in your dog's profile and upload a few cute photos. Once the account is created, you can then get to work turning your dog into a social media darling.
Step
2
Build a following
Now it's time to start posting regular updates on behalf of your dog. You can upload cute photos, let the world know what your dog is up to, and share posts with your friends and family. You may even want to follow a few celebrity pooches to give your pet a few famous "friends". The main thing to remember is to have fun -- this is a grrr-eat excuse to spend some quality time with your dog, so make sure you enjoy every second of it.
Step
3
Update regularly
If you want to turn your dog into a social media star, you'll need to be as active as possible on their account. So post as many updates as you can, interact with friends and other users, and stage special photoshoots to create cute content for other dog lovers to drool over. While the chances of your dog becoming a bona-Fido celebrity are slim, it could happen one day. Regardless of whether it does or not, the most important thing is that you're bonding and having fun with your dog.
