Traveling with Large Dogs

Who out there travels with large dogs? How many? What kind? What do you do with them while away from coach??

We have two German Shepherds and they love to go with us but we've never taken them on extended trips....

I have a yellow lab that's close to 100 pounds. He rides in the back floorboard of my silverado double cab tethered to the seat belt with a harness when we're on the road.

When we're at the campsite we have a kennel in the trailer to put him in. When we're outside I have a cable I tie him up with so he can be outside with us, or we walk him on a leash. Also have an attachment for my bike so he can walk along with us while we're riding the bikes.

We don't leave him alone at the trailer, we always take him with us.

We have 1 German Shepherd and 1 Cockapoo. Shepherd weighs in at 80+ and Cockapoo at 20+ . They go where we go except in stores. Hiking, swimming or just laying around. They're family.


Happy Camping!

Ernest, you need to clarify your query to ask if any Berkshire Moho owners travel with big dogs.

Silly me - I thought since I posted this under the Berkshire forum it would be clear that I was asking fellow Berkshire owners..... Sorry .....

I never noticed the difference between Jake coming along in the class A or the travel trailer, does what you camp in determine how you should treat your furry friends?

If a dog is in a Moho while underway and has the freedom to walk around versus being secured in the back seat of a pick-up truck, there is a major difference.

Guys I didn't start this thread with the intent of it being MH vs TT... Since I have a class A I'm only interested in how fellow class A owners deal with their large dogs. I fully realize that TT'ers have totally different ways of transporting their pets from us coach owners... I acknowledge that.... But for the sake of this discussion could we simply address Class A's without making it an issue of "my way is better than your way". Thanks.....

Well we travel in a C with a 100 lb Newfy mix and a 55 lb full on mix of everything. They lay down on some cooling beds between or behind the seats. Sometimes I have a dog head in my lap but my arm rest keeps them from trying to be lap dogs. When the RV is moving they tend to sleep or look out the windows.

2 90 lbs female german shepherds here. they travel everywhere with us. the fur gets everywhere if you get behind on clean up, but the dogs are well behaved as i've been training/working them in schutzhund since they were 6 weeks old. now they are almost 7 years old.

when we leave them in the coach, they just sleep i think... nothing gets messed up, they don't bark unless someone knocks on the door. very well behaved.

i do get in trouble a lot for taking them off leash. but they are on voice control no matter what the distraction (benefits of all that training). my dogs are better behaved than most people's kids at the campgrounds...
