    Going out just for a day trip gets a collapsible water bowl, a bottle of water, and poop bags. Depending on what we're doing I might also bring treats, treat bag, clicker, and a tug or ball (or the Tuggy Ball), the long line, and also the first aid kit depending on WHERE we're going. Like the first aid kit came along when I drove down to the lake because I was over 30 minutes from home.

    Agility trial gets far more stuff. It's like moving in somewhere when I go to an agility trial LOL.

    Something tells me I need to get more organized...

    You guys are impressive!

    Usually we just make sure to have water and a bowl. Leashes and collars, clicker, whistle, treats and treat pouch...maybe a blanket. I feel so underprepared...

    Depends where we are going. If it's to the dog park, nothing.

    Wow I feel lame. I bring Juno lol. I used to be kind of cool and had a bag with a long line, water dish, poop bags, and water. Haven't touched it in a couple years.

    One of the trainers where we train has a Boat & Tote from LL Bean for each of her dogs with their name on it. Each dog has it's own color bag, too.


    Same here- weekend get aways, visits to family, etc, Caleb's First Aid bag comes with us. We pretty much have the same stuff in the human first aid kits in the vehicles, so I don't worry about hauling it around day to day. I have a small one from the NJASPCA that fits in the fanny pack I hike with.

    I have a bag that I put gear into depending on what sport we're going to.. But the bag always has an excessive amount of poop bags and spare leashes in it.

    If we're going racing, I grab muzzles and jackets and more leashes (need two per dog)

    If we're showing, I grab whichever show leads coordinate with the venue

    My truck always has one jug of water and a bowl in it.. I have a few other jugs I throw in there, too. My truck is pretty much a giant dog bag.. it's got a dog first aid kit, an emergency supply of food and leashes, and plenty of leashes, collars, and toys lol
