Many campers would call animal control or the host, or owner if there was a loose dog on a camp site.



Just giving a non judgemental opinion the experience of 30 years of camping mostly with dogs.



Not suggesting anything but the the campground rules are getting stricter as people continue to push the envelope & try to bend the rules.

Again... I understand campground rules completely. I actually get somewhat annoyed when people do not follow them, particularly rules about dogs. However, I didn't ask if the unit would work within the rules of campgrounds that have leash rules. I asked how the unit itself worked.
I guess I needed to be more specific. Like, When we boondock on a friends land, is it simply plug-and-play or will it need to be reprogrammed each trip? If we plug it into an outside compartment, will the walls interfere with the signal? Will hills or trees interfere?
If anyone has information on those questions, I'd love to hear your responses.

We have the "wired" and "unwired" versions.
The wired one uses a perimeter wired buried in the ground.
Friend's of ours take there's with them camping and string out wire and staple it down around there campsite.
No one has rejected them from doing it.
The wireless version we have sends out a predetermined "area" signal.
I'd put it in one of your cargo hatches and you should be fine.
Hardest part is training the dogs!
I've trained 4 now and they respect the boundary.
Even when they see a squirrel or rabbit.

I train my dog long and hard and it pays off in the end.

Here in Michigan, they require you to keep your dog on leash. We use airial

dog runs on the side of our decks. Gives Lulu freedom of our whole lot.

I think it would work in one of the compartments as well, but if not maybe just placing it under the coach would be the ticket.

Definitely agree with the training! I checked my home unit which is wired one day only to find it was turned off! I have no clue how long it was that way but I know the pups wouldn't follow me across the "line" even with it off! They just sat down and gave me a dirty look!

We travel a lot, with three Yorkies (3-5lbs). Lots of different CG. Some spaces are roomy some very tight, some even completely concrete or blacktop,(Grand Heaven, MI). We love to walk our dogs but at night when one is in the need, or during a rain shower....... So I have a double dog fence ($40ea) that does not require ground anchoring. I secure it to a modified plastic piece of fencing that fits behind the steps, works great for all types of CGs. I feel comfortable that no one can easily walk by and pick up one of my babies and......... Good Luck!!

Leashes and tie-outs work great until they break or the person holding it accidently lets it go. I’ve seen both occurrences happen while camping more times than I can count.

We have one couple a few sites behind us that have two huskies (who are notorious escape artists) and they are constantly getting loose and running around the CG.

The worst was the time our neighbor’s psycho dog that weighs maybe 20 lbs got loose and made a bee-line for our shar-pei mix that was just minding her own business tied up to our deck. That didn’t go over well. Then our 80lb Rotty got into the scuffle and psycho dog decided he may have bitten off more than he could chew. Luckily we were right there and got them separated before any major damage could be done.
