hurricane pet dog go bag(

Camp Ruff Ruff has been around dogs 24 hours a day 7 days a week for over a decade. We couldn't stop thinking of what we would do in a case of a natural disaster where we have to leave our area or state. We put together a "Go Bag" list and will update over time.

We hope this "Go Bag" list will help set all dog and humans up for better success during stressful times such as a natural disaster. Feel free to add your thoughts in the comments. STAY SAFE!

 Hurricane "Go Bag" for Dogs/Pets 

  • Waterproof Bag
  • Medication
  • Two - Leashes/collars/harness/head collars ( double leash escape artist some dogs run when scared)
  • Clamps for dogs that can open crates (we use mountain climbing clamps)
  • Travel Bowl/s
  • Life Vest
  • Reflector/s  collar/clothes
  • Water proof bag for food/treats
  • Jackets/Clothes
  • Some canned food (waterproof)
  • Crate to keep your dog safe during travel or in shelters (Always good to crate train all dogs so it becomes a safe place for them). One main reason professionals advise to properly crate train your animals.
  • Try to stay calm and communicate often to your dogs. Always reinforce good behavior and calmness to help them through this big routine change.
  • Muzzles for any dogs that are fearful of novel things (always set dogs up for success)
  • If you need wee pads take a few in water a proof bag (some dogs do need pads to potty and this may help with stress levels) May also help in new environments friends, family homes, shelters or hotels.
  • Maybe a bone or favorite toy to keep some routine and familiar smells.
  • Blanket to cover crates to block visual stimuli (lots off dogs will bark in crates at visual stimuli-dogs,cats,humans)

A quick list from Camp Ruff Ruff that may help the furry ones cope with the big change in routine!

    I love the idea of a ‘Hurricane Pet Dog Go Bag’—but what essential items should I definitely include in mine?

    1. Hello and thanks for visiting…I would say the list is in order of importance. I would take as much as possible and each dog will be different therefore we’ll have to adjust accordingly etc meds, muzzle, collars…
