Camping allows us to get away from the hustle and bustle of urban and suburban life and gives us a chance to see the beauty of nature. Many of our canine companions enjoy the adventure of camping as much as we do and can provide their human family with additional warmth, security, and companionship. In most cases, the Polish Tatra Sheepdog is a territorial but non-aggressive animal, who will let you know that someone is coming, but is unlikely to attack unless they are provoked. Their thick white fur helps to protect them from both high and low temperatures. When camping with your dog, they should remain your constant companion throughout your adventure and should never be left either alone at the campsite where they could run across unfriendly or diseased wildlife or in the car, where temperatures and lack of airflow can quickly cause a canine to overheat.
Dog breeds that are used to guard livestock tend to be naturally territorial, and while they are typically vocal rather than aggressive, their sheer size and strength can make them quite intimidating for guests, particularly if they decide that your guests are intruding on their territory. Socialization in the home will help to ensure that your particular pooch remains friendly, respectful, and pleasant towards your guests, an important skill for a large animal indoors. The training steps used to help your Polish Tatra Sheepdog become comfortable with having guests in their territory are much the same with large dogs as they are with smaller dogs and can be used for any breed of dog.
