I would worry more about Blastomycosis this can be read HERE
There are areas that do not know what this is so make sure that if you your family or pets get sick within 1-2 mths of visiting a strange are include that area with Chief complaint. This happened to a friend of a friend, nurse heard about vacation to WI and being from up here put 1 and 1 together and got 2. The 70ish doctor never heard of it

The link you provided is invalid. It is missing a colon behind the http.
I have corrected it here.

We travel with 2 miniature schnauzers and when I groom them in preparation for our camping trips I really clip the hair on the last 3-4 inches of their legs closely and I groom their bodies and faces more closely than usual. With small dogs like we have this isn't a great big job, but the time invested pays off in cleaner floors throughout the camper and fewer complaints from the DW about trying to keep the unit clean. We have ceramic tile throughout the coach except for the bedroom so she can just take a broom and be done in a matter of a couple of minutes.

I find that many campgrounds can't possibly keep up with mowing and weeding around sites the way I do at home, so the grass is longer and there's much more "stuff" on the ground as we take our potty marches than they would find at home. I also always keep a towel at the motorhome door and wipe their feet off before I let them run around the coach, especially early morning when the dew is plentiful or right after a rain shower.

If I find that they are starting to smell "doggie like" I use the Rubbermaid container that I keep my water hoses in to give them a bath so I don't have to carry around extra tubs.

Sounds like a little extra work, but if they don't travel, we don't travel either.
