I read where Mitt Romney strapped the dogs to the roof.

Curious as to what you do with them while you're off seeing the sights.....

Your opening post asked what you do with the dogs while you are off seeing the sites. Oh and my last dog was a 70 Shepard mix, current dog is a 65 lb boxer American bulldog mix. I would do the same if I had my dad's 150 lb newfie with me too.

I bet I can explain that. He uses voice dictation to his phone. and he meant to say keeps day trips to a couple hours.

Voice dictation will get you into more trouble than autocorrect. :-)

Ok. Our dog travels in back seat of crew cab. (Leveled out with blankets). In the camper, we have a couch cover, on the beds we have "Dog" flannel blankets. We leave the windows closed but keep a couple blinds open(our girl likes to see out). We leave out the water bowl, her rubber bone and her knuckle bone(bored dogs make nasty messes). We leave the air/heat running. we just lock the camper and walk away. However, if it's extremely hot/cold where our girl would suffer from being alone if the power goes out; we let the office know we're gonna be gone and our dog is inside. Be careful, some campgrounds do not permit you to leave dogs unattended, even in you trailer. Also, you may check the campgrounds and see if they have a dog park so your pair can get off leash. We prefer KOAs for this reason. Our girl is a young, 85lb. American Bulldog and needs to run. Be advised some campgrounds do not allow German Shepards. It's an insurance issue. Remember to take your shot records and it might help if you took their CGC papers too. Have fun!

We removed the free standing dinette and put in the 2 dog crates. They are both crate trained and we use them at night and whenever we are not home. The pups are use to that and when we get ready to leave, we tell them to go to bed. They both go into their crates without an issue. Works great and we keep trips away from the camper to less than 4 hours.

We travel with 3 dogs, 150lb Mastiff, 90lb Goldendoodle, & a 10lb Maltese. They are well behaved (just don't enter the camper!) and will stay in camper for 6-8hrs without any trouble at all. If we know that we will be gone longer than that during our stay, we'll leave them at home with the house-sitter.

Silly us, when we traveled with dogs, we went by the rules that most places have to not leave your dogs unattended, and took the dogs with us to see the sites. Now that we no longer have dogs we get to see the sights together. We found that not all people adhered to these rules. I know, a lot of people will say their dogs never bark, but how do you know if you are not there. We have seen a good number of those quiet dogs standing on the dash of Class A rvs barking up a storm.

The only exception to that was a campground in Lincoln, Nebraska when we went to my MIL funeral and the lawyer to take care of the estate. We asked permission from the park owner and their main concern was that the air conditioning was on for them.

Also, it is common courtesy to pick up after them.
