Maizy is a 17lbs ball of furry energy. She is a Certified Mongrel Dog -- actually, the vet thinks she's almost entirely some type of wirehaired terrier, and she's got a generous helping of schnauzer in her as well. She's about nine months old.

She walks on leash okay, and is getting better. She cables really well. She loves to explore.

I have two questions: First, can I take her on a 10 day trip next spring? Second, I know we will both need to hike a lot in preparation. Is there anything else I need to do for conditioning?

Oh, I thought of a third: I hammock. Do I need to take along a popup crate for her, or what?

Thanks for your help!
