What to do with my dogs???

We are wanting to take our camper out alot more but we have 3 dogs.. One small Pom and a yellow lab and a coon hound.
They are the only thing stopping us from hitting the road more often and I am so perplexed on what to do with them.
We could take the Pom with hardly no problem but the other 2 are outside dogs that are used to running free and staying inside at night. Gosh I dont even think I've ever put a leash on the coon hound. We can leave them for 2 or 3 days at a time with my elderly mother coming to check on them. But longer than that I wouldnt feel right letting them just run outside.
Anybody else have that problem and how did ya solve it?

Buy a bigger coach and take them with you. That's what we did,
Good luck.

We take our dogs w/us. Most rv resorts have dog runs. We've got a lab/golden retriever mix & a border collie/Australian shepherd mix, they also love to run& stay in @ night. But again, that's what we do. Just my 2 cents

============================

And I may add- take along the vaccination papers on your dogs. If anything happens they will want to be sure the dogs have all their shots..

One final note: We've found that often campground owners know the names of local dog day care facilities in case you need one.

Happy trails,

First get all the dogs leash trained asap as they must be on a six foot lead at all times in most campgrounds. Many campgrounds ask to see vaccine records so carry them with you. Are your dogs barkers? Meaning do they bark a lot? If so you need to train them out of this before camping. Are they friendly with other dogs? Are they aggressive? Aggressive or excessively loud dogs have been known to be kicked out of campgrounds. There is also the option of doggie camps or house sitters to watch the dogs. If they aren't used to being contained, then a house sitter may be your best option.

I thought all RV's came with at least 1 dog.

We have an aussie and a siberian husky that are with us where ever we go.They are our kids at this point in our lives. Up until 2 weeks ago we camped out of a 2 horse trailer with full living quarters.The dogs had the stalls,which I had removed the divider,making one 8 x 10 room. Our new unit is a Wolf Pack 315wp fifth wheel toy hauler,and the "toys" are the puppies.We had the dealer convert it to gooseneck hitch like the horse trailer by installing a reese goose box in place of the pin box before we pick it up next wed.
I took the back seat out of the f-250 and built a flat deck in its place,carpeted to match the truck.That is where they ride when we are riding.

Happy trails,
Point well taken. I never thought about carrying their medical records/ shot records with us. I'll pack'em asap. Thank you very much, I would hate to get in a bind out of town.

you will enjoy your time more with your babies with you. find a safe way to bring them and keep them on leashes or a wire run.

Always take our dogs with us. I also took the back seat out of my F350 crewcab and that is where they ride. Now down to one dog. Had to put our yellow lab/golden retriever mix down 2 days ago. 12 years with us....he was a great friend and member of our family.
