Throughout our RV and camping travel adventures, we’ve taken note of some really cool camping gear for dogs and cats. They like to go camping or enjoy the great outdoors just like us so why not set them up with their own gear so they can go!
Here’s our suggested camping gear for cats and dogs we’ve carefully picked out just for your four-legged campers and hikers!

CAMPING GEAR FOR DOGS
Collapsible Pet Dishes
These easy-to-clean collapsible pet dishes are great for packing to take hiking or camping. They are BPA free, easy to store and come in fun colors! These bowls are made of food grade silicon, dishwasher safe and won’t crack or dent when dropped. The bowls come with carabiners to hook onto kennel doors, belt loops or their saddle bags.
Portable Elevated Dog Bed
We don’t have any pups however, we’ve seen these cool elevated dog beds at campsites everywhere! These raised beds are better for your dogs instead of them laying on the mud, gravel or grass where they can pick up ticks and fleas. They also allow circulation underneath to keep your dog cooler in the summer.
They come in different sizes so check them out by clicking the photo. These elevated pet beds can be used for both dogs and cats.
Dog Hiking Saddlebags
Dogs love to go everywhere; including the hiking trails! So, why not have them carry their own gear (food, water and their bowls)? Keep all your dog’s gear in one place including their collapsible bowls (above) and a couple bottles of fresh water along with their food and snacks. They also can carry their own leash and poop bag dispenser (below) and ChuckIt.
No-Pull Dog Harness
Having your dog wear a harness over a dog collar is much better for them as it takes the strain off of their neck during training, hiking and even running. You’ll have better control of your dog with this dog harness.
Dog Leash & Poop Bag Dispenser
There’s no place on the hiking trails or walks in the campground for those retractable leashes. Especially for bigger dogs, you’ll need a much sturdier dog leash to keep total control of your dog. The bonus in this leash, it has a poop bag dispenser! So, no excuses for forgetting your dog poop bags!
Don’t forget to stock up on compostable earth-friendly dog poop bags while you’re shopping!
CAMPING GEAR FOR CATS
Cat Screen Tent
We have one of these fun cat screen tents for our two Maine Coons. The just love it because they can be outside but safe from whatever might want to visit; including birds, large bugs, and rodents. This easy-to-collapse cat tent can be used outside or inside to confine your kitties. This screen tent can also be used for small dogs. However, as we always recommend, never leave your pet(s) unattended outdoors.
Cat Carrier – Pet Taxi
These are the cat carriers we use. We prefer these top-loading pet taxis because we can load our kitty cats into the top. But also, we can stuff them in through the gate. Of course, this hard-sided pet carrier doesn’t discriminate. It can be used for small dogs or cats alike.
Cat Indoor Teepee
This teepee cat bed is the most awesome little camping tent for your indoor cat. He’ll feel like he’s camping but in the comfort and safety of his own familiar home. Don’t be surprised if he orders up some sushi while he lounges in his comfy cat tent. But if you don’t have a camper kitty, your little dog will think it’s cool too!
EZ Mount Window Sill Kitty Bed
Our two kitties used to have a tall cat play tower . Living in a small RV doesn’t allow cat owners to have them for their kitties to perch on to look out the window. But this cool window sleeping pod allows them to enjoy watching the birds and squirrels outside. And when they get tired, they just lay back and drift off to dreamland in the afternoon sun.
Get a couple for different windows so they have different views!
Cat “Escape Proof” Harness with Leash
Don’t leave Fluffy back in the RV when you’re headed outdoors. Now your kitty can go hiking with you but he’ll need the cat harness to keep him right by your side. This awesome cat harness comes with a leash too!
This harness can be used for both dogs and cats.
Oh! And if you’re curious about how we RV with cats, check out our YouTube video as we share great tips from where we put the litter box in our RV to cat medical care.
So, as you see, camping gear for dogs and cats has come a long way! They too, can enjoy the outdoors or go camping right alongside you. When you outfit them right, they’ll be excited to jump right in the RV to go!
