This week, Red Rover Camping is all about Fido. You’ve read about how to actually keep your dog safe on the trail and which National Parks love dogs as much as you do.

We’re celebrating Friday by introducing you to our favorite Instagram right now, @thegoldenaspen. This pup was born early 2015, so you watch him grow through new adventures. Here are 17 times Aspen proved dogs are the best travel companions.

Want us to feature your dog? Post photos of your favorite hiking buddy onto our Facebook or tag @redrover-camping or #RedRoverCamping on Instagram for the chance to be featured on our website and social media platforms!
