The first ever National Camping With Dogs Day is right around the corner. This fun day is a celebration of being outdoors with our four-legged companions, getting onto the hiking trails, relaxing in front of a campfire, and enjoying the wild side of life.

To help get you excited about this new holiday for dog lovers, we've gathered up 30 awwww-some moments of dogs enjoying campsites around the country. We hope you're inspired to get out and camp next week!

Happy weekend everyone! Going off the grid peakbagging with the yellow pup momentarily. Black pup is probably enjoying a martini by the pool right about now. Stay cool and don't let the summer heat get to ya! / 大家週末愉快! 我跟小黃狗馬上就要離線去捕峯了。小黑狗可能現在正在水池旁享受一杯馬提尼。保持涼快不要讓夏日酷暑影響到你! __________________________________________________ | 2015-7-25 | Deep Lake / 深湖 #theoutbound #rei1440project #thatpnwlife #livewashington #pnwonderland #pnwcollective #wa_nderlust #wildernessculture #northwestnature #igers_seattle #wolfgangmanandbeast #bestofnorthwest #theamericancollective #camp4pix #choosemountains #wanderwashington #campingcollective #thenwadventure #briskoutdoors #campvibes #campingwithdogs #adventuredog #backpacking #easternwashington #deeplake #pnw #背包旅行 #華盛頓東部 #深湖 #太平洋西北部

LISTEN UP & TAG A FRIEND! On Saturday 9.5.15 mark it on your calendar! We want everyone who has a dog to go on a hike or go camping with their dog(s) and post about it! We're doing this for one purposes. We want to encourage people to be active with their dog(s). Obviously this is our first time trying this so be patient as we work on ways to make this event better. We welcome your suggestions because after all, this is your brand. We're just here to be a voice! To commemorate the first annual Camping With Dogs Day, we'll have shirts for sale with a % of the proceeds going toward the @pedigreefoundation. [100% of everything donated to The Pedigree Foundation goes to helping shelter dogs find forever homes. Not many foundations can say that. For more information about The Pedigree Foundation, visit the link on their Instagram.] Big thanks to @ValerieJar for the incredible design work! #campingwithdogs
