I camp with 2 shelties. Too yappy and too much hair. IMHO a midsize, laid back, non aggressive breed or mix. Campgrounds are full of dogs yanking their owners around trying to get to other dogs. My strong recommendation is get a rescue from a shelter or a breed rescue. You don't need puppy messes and the rescues are so grateful and loving. Enjoy every minute with your new buddy.

We are boxer people and always camp with them. We currently have a 1 year old that came from a shelter. His first summer of camping went well and we're looking forward to the next. Our last boxer was deaf which was great. Nothing bothered him at all. I'm laughing at the recommendations for a short haired dog. Last winter in Florida we met Harry a wonderful Newfoundlander who travelled in a FR3. Everyone in the campground new Harry. Pick a breed you like and find their rescue organization or start visiting shelters. You'll know the one when he or she finds you.

we have a mini- Pekingese. she is a rescue puppy that we said that we would watch for a week and we still have her eight years later...

I tell the wife that the Pekingese is hers, but she sleeps either on my belly or with her paws wrapped around my head.

She is very small and fits in a small carrying case. We can and do take her everywhere. She never makes a noise and most people never know that we have a puppy in this carrying case. We take her to stores, shopping, and restaurants and she will sit (in the bag) under the table at my feet.

Very good attitude and loves to play and just sit in your lap and be petted (and kiss your face non stop) or to sleep. She will sit up in the dash of the truck for hundreds of miles looking out or looking in at everyone or sleep on the dash. She loves to camps and 'knows' that when her 'stuff' is loaded in the camper that we are going on a trip.

I would not hesitate to recommend a Mini-Pekingese and pray that we have our 'little girl' for many more years to come.

Dogs love camping, we take our lab Biscuit and a "morkie", Max. The lab is also a constant companion on hikes and hunts.

As for the Newfoundland....I grew up with them. They are great loving kind gentle dogs but they shed like you won't believe requiring daily brushing and drool even more. I did see a great Pyrenees on the front dashing a class A once. Another beautiful dog with lots of hair and drool. And in my experience short hair dogs she'd a lot too. The little ran hair matches our carpets better but that would never stop me from getting a black haired dog if it called my name.
