Dog Survival Kit. Is it Necessary?

A Dog Survival Kit? Come on…

Kash has a dog survival kit. I put on together a few years ago and I keep updating it yearly.

There is a pretty good one that is available commercially if you don’t want to take the time to gather the dog survival kit parts and pieces yourself.

For your dog survival kit, you can get a small knapsack or even a gym bag, put some small sealed bags of dog food, an extra leash, an extra collar, copies of your pet’s immunization records, portable water pouches, a portable bowl for food/water, and any medications your dog made need. This is a start.

There, I tried to make it easy by providing links to some dog survival kit items. This is just to give you an idea. You can custom make your own by finding what works best for you and your dog. ( or if you have a cat too, here is a cat survival kit)

All fun and games until someone ends up in a cone!

Another item you may need is a first aid kit. You can use it for yourself as well as the dog. Just replace what you use or if any items get outdated. (I have needed our several times now!)

I know this is a bit of a departure from my usual style of reporting on events that have happened to Kash the Dog and I, but felt it was important to kind of make you think about being prepared.

Where we live, we are watching a potentially dangerous storm approaching with strong straight line winds and thunderstorms. Who knows, our power could go out for days, even weeks. I just want to protect my family, and Kash IS family, and be as comfortable and safe as possible.

So, think about what your pet needs before an emergency arises, as well as you and your family. Think, be prepared.
