I agree with those that have said take them with you. You will enjoy your trip so much better. About 4 months ago we planned a trip to go camping in our pop up we had. We planned to go this past Oct. We have 2 small dogs, a Silky Terrier and a Brussels Griffon. I worried for 4 months what we would do with our dogs. We had not gone on a real camping trip for years. But I even considered canceling the trip because I was so worried about them. We don't have anyone that we could leave them with. We live out in the country so there is no kennels we could leave them with either. My husband really fought me on this too. So I just decided we were going to take them with us not matter what! I drove over 200 miles with them in the car by myself. I brought them a soft pillow for one to sleep on the other one stayed in the back seat on top of all our stuff and really enjoyed watching things outside. They did extremely well on the drive and then when we got there they barked at one dog one time and that was it. I stopped them pretty quick. When we left for a while they never made a sound. They were good as gold. I was so grateful I made the decision to take them with us!! I truly enjoyed our trip much better. I know they were very happy to be with us. Our dogs don't eat well if we leave them. I would have worried the entire time if I didn't have them with me. It would have probably ruined the trip for me. Now that we have our Roo they love it even better. So do a test run and see how it goes. They may really surprise you!

We usually bring our puppies with us but it does depend on what we plan on doing. If we will be hiking or just sitting around the campground we bring then for the trip. If we plan on more activities like zip lining or horseback riding we leave them at a doggie hotel at home. Click image for larger version

Our Shih Tzu/Doxie mix knows when we are packing for a trip, and you should see how excited he gets, especially when his blanket and bowls are loaded into the MH. If he sees me putting the same things in a bag, that means a weekend at the kennel and it breaks my heart to see him so dejected. He even hid under the bed once, before I could get him into the SUV. Now, we take him unless we will be away more than we'd be in the campground.

To answer your questions...yes. You can leave your dogs under the care of a dependable person. We feed and water our neighbors labs when they travel. I know other rvers who trade out, taking care of each other's dogs when they travel separately. Good luck.

Do like we do and let them pups run!!! We never go to Martha's camping emporium only to national forests or blm. Our dogs go where they please, so long as we can see them and they dont run off (which they never have). Happy, happy happy!!!
