This sweepstake ends October 27th! Hurry to join.

Our pets may have thrived during quarantine, but for humans, we’ve never appreciated the great outdoors more. The preferred tire brand for adventurers, BFGoodrich is ready to help people get out and go again – and there’s no reason our faithful companions shouldn’t come with us!

To encourage and enable exploration of the great outdoors along with our beloved pets, BFGoodrich is launching the #BFGTrailsandTails sweepstakes. Beginning today, October 7:

  • Thrill-seekers are invited to share photos of their outdoor adventures with their pets, tagging @BFGoodrichTires and using the hashtags #BFGTrailsandTails and #Sweepstakes. 
  • Every qualifying photo will be entered for a chance to win a set of BFGoodrich® Trail-Terrain T/A® tires and a year-long America the Beautiful National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands pass to more than 2,000 federal recreation sites across the United States to help fuel countless adventures together.
  • Thrill-seekers can learn how to create a safe travel experience for themselves and their pets before heading out on an adventure. Expert tips can be found below my signature.

HELPFUL GUIDE FOR ADVENTURING WITH PETS:

  • Know your pet’s limits: No one knows your pet better than you, but if you’re unsure of what activities are safe for your pets (especially if you have a young or elderly pet), consult a veterinarian before venturing out.

  • Pack accordingly: Your checklist will vary depending on your plans, but the basics should include:

    • Waste bags, collar with ID tags, sturdy 6-foot leash

    • Water supply, portable water bowl, pet food and snacks

    • Pet first-aid kit and pet-safe insect repellent

    • LED collar if you’ll be outdoors overnight

    • A pet backpack to help share the load

  • Don’t skimp on the water: It’s important to keep your pet hydrated to prevent overheating, but don’t allow them to drink from streams or lakes, which can contain dangerous waterborne pathogens.

  • Be aware of wildlife: Placing bear bells on your pet can alert wildlife of your presence and help avoid an unpleasant encounter. During hunting season, put a reflective vest on your pet for safety.

  • Play by the rules: Respect others and the environment by adhering to local guidelines, like leash laws and posted signs indicating where pets are and are not allowed.
