#CampingWithDogs Is The Best Thing Ever

by Jennifer McShane
22nd Aug 2015

We've discovered #campingwithdogs this week and we love it.

Now here’s an Instagram trend we’ll happily get behind. For those who love Camping, Glamping or are just looking for an excuse to try it out, we have something that will make you want to pack up and get a tent right now.

It’s known as the Camping With Dogs (#campingwithdogs) phenomenon, and it suddenly got a life of it’s own on social media, thanks to one user. Started by Ryan Carter, the owner of a social media agency in Nashville (and two dogs, Bailey and Cooper), the #CampingWithDogs hashtag has gotten about 31,000 mentions on the social media platform. That’s not counting the people who send Carter direct messages of their dogs out in the wild. In total, Carter believes he has gotten more than 50,000 photos since he launched the account this year. Cute dogs enjoying the great outdoors? What could be better?

These pictures have cheered up our Saturday no end, and we our planning to get an adorable dog and camp ASAP. Here are some of our favourite shots:
