Aslan’s camping trip in northern Michigan, Fisherman’s Island State Park

Aslan and I took a short trip to northern Michigan to enjoy camping on Lake Michigan beach. It was the first time for Aslan to encounter waves due to the windy conditions. At first he seemed intimidated with the on coming waves, but after a while like most Alta Tollhouse GSDs, he could not get enough of it. I am blessed to have such a wonderful and well behaved GSD who kept me safe at night while I indulge in night time milky way photography. If you are interested, Aslan is on Instagram; to follow: @aslan.AT_GSD

Tips for this trip:
1. Bring a big enough tent for you and your GSD. Brings lots of towels and know that your tent will never be clean :-).

2. We chose camp site 9 because it was far enough from people that he was allowed off leash. I know he is supposed to be a on a 6 foot leash so I broke this rule 🙂

3. The balls/toys you may bring may be lost in the lake forever depending how strong the current is, so bring a life vest for your dog and make sure he has a good recall.

4. Bring lots of water.

5. Travel in the fall, less bugs, less people.
