We leave the dog in the RV at the CG with the heat or A/C on. Our dog is content in the RV alone.
He stays in our stix and brix home alone all day while we work, and has no problem staying in the RV all day while we are out.

Not really great advise. Even if the park manager doesn't get involved, the dog, especially a howler like a Basset Hound, may be making quite a bit of noise. Plus it's not fair to the dog.


Ok. So never leave them in the RV? What if they do leave them and they don't happen to bark or they don't bark at the things around them in that particular park. Do you suggest a kennel every time they leave the RV.

If the dog barks and annoys others then yes, either kennel the dog or leave it home. If it doesn't bark (and be realistic here) and it is content being alone then fine, let it stay in the rv. The op stated the dog barks to the point she forewarned the neighbors. It should not be left alone or she should kennel it.

Where we winter in Florida, our 5th wheel,is our home. We go shopping, go out to eat, go to the movies, do,laundry, etc., our dog waits patiently on our bed for us, just as she does at our S&B home. (Our fellow dog owner campers do the same. ) She doesn't bark or whine or misbehave, she just waits. If it's really hot and we have a power outage, (happened once) our neighbor sent us a text to let us know and we came back. Been doing this for a few years now.

Great thread!

Wife and I are new forum members and have adopted 2 pups needing a good home. We camp mostly remote national forest, self contained, so the dogs are no problem. Except for bears, cats and wolves...

We’re working through the “training”, getting ready for rv park overnights and I see a couple of good tips here.

Thanks!

We leave our little one in the RV. We have a camera set up so we can watch her. Just like we do when we are in our stick and brick home.

Nothing works as well as a long walk before you leave. Tired dogs tend to be good dogs. We've left ours for several hours; arrived back at the RV only to find them still sacked-out in our bed.....LOL!

SidecarFlip, you will love Maine. It is the most dog friendly state we have ever been to.

X-2, stick & brick, or RV, what's the diff, if someone knocks on the door he might bark.

Our two greyhounds travel with us and are good campers. They enjoy the walks, love the attention from other campers and are content to sleep with the a/c and television to keep them company while we are out. They get very excited, jumping, not barking, when we return if only a run to the grocery, or 4 hours sight seeing. They immediately are taken for one of the many walks they get to take while we are camping. At home it is open the door and let them go in the fenced in back yard. I do like the campgrounds that have fenced in dog parks. We will take our two when no one else is there and let them run off the extra energy.

My fear is our upcoming fall trip to the south west. We stayed once, before we added a power surge protector, at a campground with unreliable power. I am now in fear of coming back to an over heated camper.

Anyone have reliable aps or product to alert of of temperature changes?


Looking forward to new adventures and new friends.
