Screen room

Just purchased 2010 surveyor svf241rk fifth wheel. Has a dometic awning. Question is we need something to keep the dogs in, along with us, while relaxing. One dog is noisy and wants to kill every other animal. Wife insists on bring her along. Any suggestions? Thanks.

A good leash or a portable kennel.
From what I have read most places require you to keep your dog on a leash so they do not kill every other animal.

Using screen rooms for a while, keep Dog on leash, they can escape a screen room in heart beats. It'll make a semi private space for you folks.

Campgrounds will kick you out if your dog keeps yapping\barking. If it causes injury to another dog or a camper you'll be liable up to your ears. Campgrounds take those matters very seriously. Most places will NOT allow any aggressive breed into the grounds either. It's best to convince the wife to leave it in a kennel or have it watched at home.

We have 2 dogs... and one is overly protective of DW. That one gets left at the kennel. In fact she's going there tomorrow for a couple of nights.

Sounds like the dog needs a little training. Most people don't realizes That dogs have to be socialized in the first 6 months when they are puppies. I would get a shock collar and a book on training if you don't feel confident in doing the training yourself then there are trainers in most area who will take on the task. Our GSP had this problem when we first started camping but we made him understand that was not acceptable behavior. The problem with good looking dogs is people will come on to your campsite to see the dog, he gets very nervous when people approach him, so we put him up after the visitors have been there for a while we bring him back out and let him get accustomed to them. There is no excuse for a barking dog unless you have trained him that way or he has trained you to his bad habits. We used a bark collar on our Dalmatian and it would allow him to yep but a loud bark got him a shock. Try it this kind of training makes for a more enjoyable dog and camping experience. My wife occasionally will make me wear one when I am talking to much. Good luck.

We found a solution for our 3 canines. It's a portable fence about 30" high that folds out and has a gate. You can also hook 2 together for more room. Check Petsmart. Our dogs love the untethered freedom.

Then you need to take it to professional training including socialization with other animals. If it is murderously aggressive, talk to a vet.

One thing to keep in mind - dogs react to us - so if you're stressing, it may amplify it back at you and everyone else.
