We are so lucky to have already gotten to do a bit of our favorite pet friendly summer activity this year- camping! I have been camping with dogs my entire life and I can't imagine going without them. Last month, I upped the pet camping ante and took nomad cockatoo Leo along. I thought there would be an adjustment period for this first time parrot camper but he very cheerily took to tent living. Leo didn't mind the tent being shaken by the breeze at Grand Canyon National Park. In fact, he thoroughly enjoyed watching the local wild birds from the safety of his nylon and mesh home away from home. During our stays at Moab and Lake Mead, the tent got too warm to spend much time in but having a safe place for meals and some cage free time was just enough to make Leo fall in love with camping and me adore having him with us.
