We leave a fiery 5 lb. long hair Dotson miniature at home , she barks at everyone and every thing . She is great watch dog and would chew off your toe nails .. Lol

We have a cockatoo at home and when Rebel comes in she Bird hunts . She can not even reach the bottom of the cage , but she watches

I would be doing tick checks on them daily and ask your veterinarian about what shots they should have ie: a leptospirosis vaccine (bacteria spread by rodent urine)

I am sure they will love camping just as much as you!
And heartworm also.....

We camp with 2 boxers and they enjoy it as much as we do!

They each have a cot & a dog bed on top of them and a fan when it's really hot. They are ALWAYS leashed or on their cables. They seldom bark and usually only when another dog barks/charges at them first.

Little dogs are still dogs and should never be off leash or a tie out. Why the owners that let them run loose think it's a good idea is beyond me. We've been charged by any number of loose little dogs and their owners think it's really funny that their little dogs think they can fight my dogs. The owners also seem to be deaf since they do nothing to correct the barking.

I would not want my dogs to attack any dog but especially a small snacker dog and certainly don't encourage it but my dogs are dogs and will defend themselves. Fortunately, they've not done so. YET.

You mentioned your dogs would "most likely" stay inside at night. I'd take the "most likely" out of that and make sure they stay inside. There are all sorts of critters that roam at night that you wouldn't want your dogs to tangle with.

Thanks Karen, we would have brought this problem to the attention of the campground management, but there was literally no one there. It was one of these "Put your money in an envelope and drop it in the box and put the sticker in your window" boondocks campgrounds. Completely unattended which is why these people were allowed to go wild all night. We won't be going back to that campground.

OK, all done. Gun posts are now in the "traveling with Firearms" thread and the camping with dogs thread is being moved to "pets" forum as well.

We take our Yorkie wherever we go. The yapper has a tendency to bark at anything that moves, but her bark is not usually loud and for the most part is contained within our campsite. We will not allow any incessant barking and will control it. In fact, I think it is mannerly to contain any perceived disturbance to within the confines of your own campsite. I have witnessed spousal arguments, parents yelling at children (which is more disturbing to me than a pack of yowling dogs anyday) and just out right rude , obnoxiously loud individuals. I guess camping means different things to different people and I suppose tolerence is the key.

One of my former hobbies was Upland Game hunting. I say former because my constant companion on those trips is now older and retired. He traveled with me for 14 years to all sorts of fancy or rustic campgrounds but now spends his time in the back yard enjoying retirement and occasionally retrieving his ball. He is Shooting Starr's Commander (Ike), a NAVHDA GSP. He was the most enjoyable traveling companion possible. He doesn't travel with us now as it's too hard on an old arthritic dog so he gets to stay behind with the baby sitter. I'll miss him when he is gone. My wife's two Westies do go with us and they are very enjoyable also. The responsibility for well behaved dogs rests with the owners and I have found most handle that responsibility very well.

We take our 2 german shepherds. They love it!!! They sleep in the trailer, we walk and run them on the trails and around the campground, which helps with the barking and excitment of seeing new things. Also one is still a puppy, so any excess energy we can burn off helps. Enjoy camping!!!

I think exercise is the Key, we do the same, 2 walks a day, and they are so tired they dont even think about barking!! The dogs that people do not leash, or do not keep on their own site is the only issue I have seen, besides cleaning up after their dogs!

This may sound silly, but I have made up a medical folder for our animals, each animal has it's own section, first page is a "Mug" shot full face and profile, second page is the vets info, then ALL medical receipts for treatments their ID CHIPS and rabies certificates.This way I always have everything handy and my dogs ALWAYS loose their tags but this way I have all the things I need in one spot......( I do this for the family also LOL just different paperwork)
