. It is not so much the breed as the individual dog's temperament which varies a lot. My current Shih-Tzu does not like riding in the vehicle yet friends have the same breed with no problems.


We had 3 Shih tzus at the same time. 2 loved to ride, the other would rather stay, if somebody would stay with. All going, she was in a race to get in. But she loved to camp.

My concern with another Sheltie would be that they are known for being one of the more vocal breeds, which of course can be challenging to deal with in a campground. And many I've met have been rather high strung. Although I will say that one of my best friends had one that I believe would have made an excellent RV dog. She was calm and easy going.

Good luck, and thank you for doing your homework!


yup, I felt we were lucky with our past Sheltie. I have read about sheltie's and they seem to trend towards being on the hyperactive side, I'm thinking ours was the exception.

I'm no dog expert so please keep the ideas coming! [emoticon]

Look at Cavaliers, they were bred to be lap dogs. Small and easy to please disposition. With any dog you decide on, get a professional trainer and it’ll make a world of difference!


Googled this breed, I will look into this one.

That's an easy one for me....

I spent 6+ years on the road with Golden Retrievers. I would not hesitate to do it again. The hair is hard to avoid though. I lost my last Golden three years ago and I still find the stray dog hair around the house. I sure miss my kids.

We had a Cocker for many years that traveled well. Didn't bark, slept well, and loved to go. Whenever you opened the MH door, she was ready to go!

I don't dare show those piks to DW, as we would be getting a dog next week! [emoticon]

I have 2 mini "Aussiedoodles". I'm partial to herding dogs because they listen and learn so well, and tend to not run off; and when you cross an Aussie withh a poodle, they become ridiculously-friendly (which is always a good thing when out-and-about) and they seldom shed, although need to be clipped. Ben is only 19 lbs and 13" tall; Jimmy is 15" and 33 lbs. They LOVE to travel and they're not barky. Their energy level is higher than a Shih-Tzu, for example, but nothing a simple 10-minute walk can't take the edge off and have them sleeping for a few hours :-)
