June is National Camping Month - Camping With Your Dog

Carry on Camping with your canine – June 2019

June is National Camping Month (henceforth, for the sake of type-speed, known as NCM.) This is by no means a new-fangled thing – NCM has been around since the 1970s. Here at NHHQ we celebrate NCM with a mixture of excitement and trepidation: we love a bit of camping – but we love coming home to a hot shower and clean sheets and a proper toilet after camping too. There is one thing for sure though, the kids adore everything about it, and there’s another member of the family for whom it is certainly the best week of the year: the dog.
