Camping With Dogs Founder, @NashvilleRyan's My Dog Story

Author: Ryan Carter, Camping With Dogs founder

Every dog has a story, and we want to share it. 

A message from Camping With Dogs founder, Ryan Carter

Our #MyDogStory campaign serves to share stories of how dogs have impacted our lives. Whether it’s how you met your dog, your favorite adventure together, or how your pup changed your life, every dog has a story, and we want to share it. So today, I’ll start with #MyDogStory.

9 years ago, I got Cooper from a rescue shelter in Nashville. He's been through so many life changes with me. Most notably was meeting my wife and our dogs becoming best friends. There's nothing better than sharing memories with someone you love and watching your dogs have the time of their lives exploring a trail or at a campground.

If it wasn't for that, I probably wouldn't have started the Camping With Dogs community. Camping With Dogs started off as a space to inspire people to get outside with their dogs but it evolved into so much more than that. For me personally, it's grown into a business I'm very proud of. I've met so many awesome dogs, and their humans of course, all while "working." I use quotations because most people who see the places I go for work and all the dogs I get to play with wouldn't consider it work at all.

But the best part is the stories I hear from people on what Camping With Dogs means to them. It's brought people together and formed strong communities of adventure-loving dog owners. It's inspired groups to get their dogs together and clean up local rivers or go van camping through the PNW. 

Although it's easy to celebrate the Instagram worthy images from an epic weekend of hiking, you know the true value of a community in how it deals with loss. I vividly remember the tragic death of Peanut. I had never met Peanut, and at the time, had never met Alex Borsuk either. But through the CWD world, I felt like I knew them like best friends. I felt like it was my dog that had passed away, and from the response to the incident, I could tell that thousands of other people felt the same way. That's powerful.

Instagram, for better or for worse, has brought us dog-loving people together. I'm grateful for everyone I've met through Camping With Dogs. It's been an unexpected adventure I wouldn't trade for anything. #MyDogStory is more about you than it is about me. Thank you for letting me follow along with your stories and letting CWD be a part of your life.

Share your #MyDogStory with us on Instagram by using the hashtag and tagging @campingwithdogs in your photos.

This excellent, super comprehensive post could not have come at a better time for me, thank you!
Great day! I could have sworn I’ve been to this blog previously however in the wake of perusing a portion of the posts I understood it’s unfamiliar to me. In any case, I’m unquestionably happy I discovered it and I’ll be bookmarking and inquiring regularly!

everything flows quite naturally. The greeting, the complement, the added value…you ask the thoughtful question because it’s something you truly want to know the answer to!
I am a blogger who left the scene for a while, and now I’m back, and ready to make some new connections. I will most definitely be checking out your site!

You might gain a few followers by playing the numbers game, but they won’t stick around long if you’re not speaking your own authentic truth. Making REAL connections is what commenting (and blogging) is all about, right?
Here’s my “added value”: I can’t stress enough the importance of being sincere in your comments. It would be easy for a reasonably intelligent person to use this formula and play the numbers game by commenting on as many blogs as possible. You MUST truly connect with the post–because when you do,

I really enjoyed this post about commenting on blogs. I had never thought about this being a way to help grow my blog! I am going to start using your methods and comment on other blogs – I mean, I have before, but they were probably just “blah” comments. 
my own blog, I get people who will “like” my post, but they never actually leave a comment. That is frustrating, because I don’t know if they have actually read my content or they are liking it in hopes that I will come and visit them.
