1st ....check with CG that dog pens are allowed

2nd ...golden doodles are not small dogs and can overcome dog pens

3rd ...pets should be on leash when outside the RV and under direct control of owner


Dog stake with swivel.....screws into ground/attach leash og has free roam of CG site but not running loose
*we used one for our 78# Border Collie/Lab.


Is it time for your medication or mine?

No!
4 nights ago, the neighbors in the next camp site over tethered their 80+ pounder on a spiral screw in stake in the ground. It charged me and my dog and popped the stake right out of the ground. It wasn't pretty.

I only use a leash when outside the camper for several reasons:

1. it ensures that I am paying attention to what my dog is doing

2. it ensures that I will be able to quickly interact if a kid or another dog suddenly approaches my dog

3. it ensures that I am following campground rules and that my dog is not left unattended at any time.

tarheelman I never really noticed until recently but I'm seeing more and more campgrounds ban the pet fences. Mowing was the reason at one place, another said it was an insurance requirement and one other said they've had to many jump over and take after another animal or left outside alone. I'm not sure the real reason why it seems to be more common now, but just be sure you call ahead and verify the rules of the campground you are at.

Despite the naysayers on this thread, we've been traveling with a pet fence since 2006. It's basically 3 sections of X-pen that's 42" and one section under the rig that's 36". My daughter's Golden Retreiver and Puggle were fine in there, but I wouldn't let them out by themselves.

There are definitely parks that don't allow pet fences and that's just the way it is. But many, many more allow them in my experience than don't.

I doubt the outcome with this dog/owner would have been any different if this dog had been on a leash. I suspect the dog would have pulled the leash out of the owner’s hand. An inattentive owner using a tether in place of training to control their dog.

I just carry (2) 10' tie-out cables for when we are sitting under the awning. It just makes sure my two are close by (usually just laying on the mat watching the world go by) and I snap the opposite end to a carabiner snapped to something on the trailer. I think my Aussie could go over just about any kind of fence if he was properly motivated - and a bunch of giggling kids would be tops on his list!

That had more to do with an aggressive dog, poor owner control then the spiral stake

We used spiral stake with our 78# dog and never had an issue
Course she didn't 'charge' at people of other dogs

Those dogs can jump! A rope is a better option attached to the RV or TV IMO. Those screw ins MAY work for smaller dogs.
