My wife has a micro-switch. 10 min down the road and she's asleep. Cool, think I'll listen to a little Neil Young, for the next 4 hours!!!

True......
I don't see it happening.
He lays down and goes to sleep till he feels the rig slow Down then he gets up to look around.
If nothings amiss he's back to sleeping duty.

Now that is one great travelling dog!
It is surprising, to me at least (I own a GSP), at how many dogs do ride in the back of pickups. While down in Wyoming, I couldn't count all of the ranch trucks that went by with a dog in the back, up on the toolbox, or feet up on the boxside, checking out what's passing by. Down there, mostly blue healers and border collies, but all very well trained.
I know for a fact that if I had my pointer in the box, the first bird that flushed out of the ditch, and she would launch!

Sadly I have a friend that lost his best friend a black lab, that either jumped out or fell out and was ran over by the back wheels. Needless to say he was devastated. They make some really nice diamond plate dog boxes you could put in the back for your "best friend". The guilt would be tough to live with....... Personally I would not chance it. I agree with OC just because it is legal to ride in the trailer does not make it a good idea, I know he was just joking but with some people you never know.......

Try to get her to spend time in the camper in the meantime, so she's familiar with it before her first journey. Reward the dog after her journey with treats and high praise. Let her out in intervals and that is also a good time for rewards and high praise.
I agree mostly...We don't put water in our pointers crate. It'll splash around and make the bedding wet. But we do stop every two hours, or less if its really hot, to let him out to stretch, drink and potty. Our setter sits in the cab with us. The crate is for his protection as stated. Never had a problem. Keep your exhaust fan on and even purchase a 12volt clip on fan if you think your dog will need it.

Our dogs ride in the trailer, laying on the bed in the master, with fans on and windows open. I see no harm in it. Is it the safest way to for them to travel? Probably not, but it works for us. How many of us as kids rode in a car seat? I'm guessing most of us survived ... (here's your chance Ron! )
