Phil,
That is a great idea! We frequently camp with my DW's cousin, the girls go shopping and the guys stay at the campground and relax with the pooches!

We have had good success finding doggy daycare and boarding facilities in a lot of areas that will babysit our Welsh Corgi. He is a very mellow pup and does not tend to bark when we are gone (according to a few neighbors in adjacent sites). So if we're only going to be gone for a couple of hours we give him a marrow bone and leave him in the TT.

That said, if we are camping in hot weather we generally board him or don't go to areas that do not allow dogs. We have had rare instances where the AC in our rig failed and are not willing to risk his life to RV quality AC technology.

This place gets some great reviews and does offer dog walking services.

That IS a beautiful park. It seems that the farther west you go the more dogs on trails become an issue. Yellowstone, Glacier, Bryce, Arches, Zion, etc. None of them allow dogs.

If you want to take your dogs on trail, a good alternative is the National Forest Service campgrounds. The sites are more primitive but the campers seem to be respectful and perhaps "more into nature" IMO.

We've travelled with our two Labs for many years. Initially it was Sam and Cocoa, a yellow male and a chocolate female. They're long gone and we have two geriatric Labs, Bailey and Angus, both yellow males, both rescues. We've never had a problem, but we always call if a CG said anything about breed restrictions. We've found that once we say "Labradors" and "mature", there's no issue. We've never been refused a stay in four seasons with our present (soon to be gone) Class A

As my wife started to walk down the trail 1 of the boxers decided to attack my dog and wife. The boxer had my dog by the neck. My wife let the leash go from her hand and told the dog to run. My dog got his scarf ripped off instead of his neck, Then he tried to attach my wife. After her screaming the owner came and grabbed his dog. Thank God nobody was hurt, shaken up you bet. The navy came to investigate. Wanted to ask what I wanted to do about it. They where going to throw them out. I stopped that and said just tell them to follow the rules and leash there pets. We were lucky this time. If everyone follows the rules these things would not happen.

ive posted before on this, as another campers "nerver hurt or even growled at anyone" and unleashed pet came over to my site and attempted to assert dominance over my (restrained) 200lb great dane over some food I was cooking...

needless to say my dane grabbed the 60-80lb dog by the neck and flung him against the trailer....and probably would have done worse had the offender not yelped and ran off and my dog not restrained...

the owners were flabbergasted......and all I could say was "sorry dude"...

needless to say, I wouldent put it past my dog to try and rummage through your picnic basket, and that's why he is never left to roam of his own accord...lol....he acts like we don't feed him...

on a side note, I am installing the onan backup genny controller on our new trailer, so in the event of powerloss my mutt wont melt into a pile of Scooby poo.....we are all responsible in the end for out pets actions/behaviors and well being....

happy camping....I love to meet new cool pets! my daughter even more so

We recently camped across a family with a small yapped. Not leashed it came running at my very protective 60 pound Catahoula, who was cabled on our site. Little girl ran and grabbed the yapped before contact was made, she said "sorry". I replied "you'd really be sorry when your dog is dead." So tired of telling people to leash their dogs, you just can't fix stupid.

If your dog is so protective he might not belong in a campground. Maybe the little dog just got away from the little girl. What would have happened if your very protective dog attacked the little girl? Sounds like a dangerous situation that needs to be considered. Poor little girl must have run home crying after that. You didn't call her stupid did you?

Thanks for all the advice about boarding dogs for the day, would you believe we have 2 almost identical shih tzu's and they both have separation anxiety when we leave them. One we found on the highway and no one claimed her.
