|If you're doing lots of miles, then your guy should have no problem being in a tent.
My tip.. Hike someplace with a lot of rivers / lakes. My backpack is 35lb loaded up, and if I had to carry water (a gallon is 8lb) for 4 (3..) large dogs, I'd be carrying a lot. Roman is small, but will get dehydrated a lot quicker as well. Wouldn't surprise me if he needed a whole gallon to himself.
I also take a tube of Nutri-Cal, which is a high-calorie gel. When we're on the trail Nare won't take many treats during the hike, but he needs the energy because he is burning a lot of fuel. So he will eat like 3 or 4 dog biscuits, and I slather them in Nutri-Cal so he gets a little more to hold him off until we settle for the night.
I trim nails a week before and trim toe fur.
Take a brush and brush him while on the trail.
Put a light on his collar for night time stuff.
Always pack 2-3 extra days worth of food.
