Depending on the weather; I leave the A/C on or vents open, Fantastic fan on & the windows cracked. I cover windshield & any side w/ excessive heat w/ an additional shield such as foam core boards or silver metallic reflective covers. If they can't see out- they are less likely to bark.

It's even worse!
Most (?all) national parks won't even let you take your dog on park trails on a leash anymore.
They also have rules about leaving your dog in the RV unattended.
So, what's a hiker with a dog supposed to do? We often go on multi-hour hikes.
My solution is to not camp in national parks, thus depriving myself of my part of my heritage.
I also was kicked out of Yellowstone when our friends in the government shut down the country a couple of years ago, but that's another story.

You can try to locate a home boarding/ doggie day care type business for the day. Check Yelp for reviews. I have my own kennel free dog boarding/daycare/ nature hike business. I'm near Yosemite and Mammoth ski resort and get a lot of business every summer from people going into Yosemite not wanting to bring their pets inside the gates. The kennels in Yosemite are lousy & disease ridden, I'm told.

Pull down all the shades and play radio. Give a neighbor your cellphone number to call if your furry baby is attracting attention.

Yes! Do a bark test. We leave ours in the trailer. We leave either the radio or the TV on so they can't hear any noises outside.

Our dog is always inside when we do a shopping run. Most campgrounds have rules about leaving them outside and unattended. Also, I would be worried about somebody taking ours. He is a very handsome Siberian Husky that doesn't bark and loves every person that he meets. I would rather be safe than sorry.

We take our "boy" with us everywhere!
(He's a Pug). Walking, shopping, restaurants. He's been inside everywhere but grocery stores. It's our choice not to take him in. One of us sits in the car or RV with him during grocery trips. He is registered as a "Service Dog". Either he walks, or we carry him, and he does have a stoller. He doesn't bark, is friendly, And he really enjoys the outings. He was a Rescue, and we chose not to leave him alone.

We have left our lab for short periods in both the motor home and fifth wheel. We have Direct TV with the Dog Channel (354) on and don't have any problems.

I agree. Huskies are the one breed I don't usually accept at my dog business. Their independent nature, fence jumping and propensity to roam over most other breeds is a risk I don't want to take.
