We have a Pappilon that loves to camp. He knows when we are getting the camper ready to go and will not let us out of his sight. He is very good in te camper and a good neighbor in the campground. Loves the kids that stop by to see him.

Camping buddy------------

Any small camping buddy is good. Short haired is even better. My Daisy loves to travel and camping is her game. When she sees us load the RV for a trip, she become very excited. Loves the truck while riding.
Check your local Humane society for rescues. Make sure it is not one of the RV parks banned dogs.

Any breed can be good. The amount of time you spend with the dog will determine how good they will be. My best buddy passed the winter before last, miss him, never took him camping. If he were here today, he would be camping.

IMHO, Please camp next to someone that has a dog and puts it in the camper and then leaves the site. Some dogs do, some don't, I have heard a dog barking for hours until it's buddy returns.

The DW thinks if she can speak in a consoling tone to the dog in the other camper it will relax.

Best of luck...

Quiet dogs are great. We love our Lab but tends to rock the 'boat' while we are sleeping. People and pet friendly dogs are must. Keep a copy of shot records on hand. We have been asked twice now for them. The first time we didn't have them, that was almost ugly. We were lucky enough to have a really good vet and CG manager was willing to accept verbal proof.

X2 on checking with the parks you plan to stay at for banned breeds. Ask carefully as some facilities count the mix in mixed breeds in their decision. We went to visit a friend two years ago with our boxer/am-bulldog mix and were not allowed to enter the campground.

I've camped with several breeds / mixes and all have done just fine after an introductory period. My Schipperkee's were the most protective and provided the best alarm system. My Bearded Collie wants to herd anything that moves...and play with all the kids.

Go to your local Rescue and see who picks you out... We have six Rescues at home now so we rotate which two go with us on any given trip.
