And to get the most out of the trip for both two-legged and four-legged campers:

Do a health check

Make sure that your dog's vaccinations are up-to-date, and don't forget your dog when packing first aid. It's also worth checking that your dog's been wormed recently. Take your dog's veterinary records just in case.

Work on your dog's recall

No, not his memory of kings and queens of England or who scored the winning goal in the 1975 FA Cup final. We mean making sure your dog comes back when summoned, so that your Curious George isn't going to disappear into the wilderness once you let him off the lead.

Have training sessions beforehand using a whistle and treats if need be; most dogs learn pretty quickly once there are tasty tasty treats.

Do a dummy run

If your dog's never been out into open countryside, try a few walks in a nearby park or forest to make sure he's fit, and socialise him to the sights, sounds and smells of nature.

Pack toys

Balls and rubber toys will help with a long car journey, and keep mouths away from sticks and other hazards once out and about.

(Also, there is possibly nothing Cuter in the World than seeing a dog prance proudly down a street with his very own squeaky rubber pork chop.)

Collar up

Ensure your dog has a collar showing your name, address and mobile number.

Pack bedding and towels

Allocate a sleeping area for your dog with suitable bedding...and separate towels for outdoors and washing, natch.

Be aware of dangers

Sure, you both want to come back looking tanned and relaxed, but think about any dogs-only risks in the area you're going to. Watch out for poisonous fungi, guy ropes, cooking equipment and amphibians especially, and ensure adequate shade and water at all times.

Secure your dog at night

Dogs make great watchmen in remote locations, but you don't want them chasing after every stir in the night, so keep them safe while you're sleeping.

Keep the peace, man

They've been known to like water too.Canvas, tin and wooden walls don't resist barking too well, so keep an eye on noise levels if your canine is of the excitable variety.

Keep your dog under control

Not everyone appreciates dogs as much as you do. Some may be upset by a feisty dog demonstrating what you might think of as friendliness and affection, and this is especially true if they're trying to do it near livestock.

Under British law, farmers are entitled to destroy a dog that injures or worries their livestock, so be warned.

Use a lead

If you're taking advantage of UK rights of access guidelines*, you must use a fixed lead no more than 2m (6ft) long from 1 March to 31 July (the ground-nesting bird season), and always near livestock.

Check local restrictions

Even on access land, there may be local restrictions excluding dogs, for example during the lambing and grouse-shooting seasons. Call the Open Access Contact Centre on 0845 100 3298 if you have any doubts.

Check before taking your dog to the beach

Many countries around the world ban dogs from main beaches during the summer season or even all year round. Find out about any restrictions before taking your dog onto a beach: in the UK, local council sites should have all the info you need.

Keep it clean

Just because you're in the countryside, don't forget to scoop the poop. People are more likely to be barefooted and dog mess contains some nasty infections. The UK allows for on the spot fines or prosecution to a maximum fine of £1000 for not cleaning up after dogs.

Rights of way

In the UK, dogs can be walked on public rights of way (such as public footpaths, bridleways and byways) in England and Wales but must be kept under close control, especially near livestock.

On paths which aren't rights of way, check any restrictions beforehand. In Scotland, dogs must be kept under proper control, especially near livestock, and you should only cross fields where there are young animals or vegetable or fruit crops via a clear path.

Avoid disturbing breeding birds by keeping dogs on a short lead between April and July in areas such as moorland, forest, grassland, loch shores and the seashore. For more information see the Scottish Outdoor Access Code.

More information on holidays with dogs

If you often take your dog on holiday, check out the Kennel Club's Good Citizen Dog Training scheme. Natural England's You and your dog in the countryside is a useful read to prepare for any rural holiday with your dog. And dog-accompanied or not, please always follow the Countryside Code.

*In England and Wales, the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 grants the right to walk freely on mapped areas of mountain, moor, heath, downland and registered common land without having to stick to paths.
