An interesting thing happens during the bugout. You have to decide how many mouths come on the ride. Do you bring your dogs? People share very different types relationships with their dogs. Some people really enjoy the presence of their dogs, some people lock them up outside and others are absolutely entranced with them. They treat them like their kids. One big question lingers and that is how your dog behaves when its outside. Will its bark give up your position?
If you are one of the people who must bring their dog along you better prepare for them. You have to make sure that you are going have enough food, water and the like to care for your dog. Also, you have to take into account the dogs fitness level. Don’t assume your dog is going to be able to hike 10 miles without an issue.
