Thanks for all this great information. We are trying to figure out how to do our cross Canada trip with a 17 yo cat, who doesn't like traveling (although she has put up with it in the past, in a camper van) & hates us being away for even a day.

We always travel with our two huskies... a deciding factor in us finally upgrading from tent to trailer was that our big husky is 9 now & has arthritic hips. She was really beginning to feel the cold (despite a comfy bed & blanket over her!).

Both our dogs are rescued, one from a pretty terrible existence as a truly feral street dog in Taiwan. So he is a bit of a nervous nelly around strangers, so, in addition to the basics we always bring;

- lots of healthy treats (to give to strangers who want to make friends).
- some rescue remedy in case we have loud neighbors or loud children
- gravol just in case
- their dog beds from home
- bendryl (with doggy dosages written out)
- their cable tied outs

With those things our dogs travel very very well and have a fantastic time!!

Oh.......And a word on those who love to meet with the campground dogs.

As a dog rescuer and a person who has done a ton of work with my timid guy and many like him, I can't help but add.....Please ask before trying to pet and if the dog doesn't run up and give kisses (like our big friendly dog always does), or maybe even chiffs and huffs a bit; PLEASE don't automatically assume that they are a bad dog, they have bad owners, or that they are unsocialized or abused. Give them space! If they are like my guy, just ignore them, don't stare at them (meanwhile maybe find out the background story from the owner...) and maybe the dog will eventually dart in for a sniff ~ in our case within ten minutes of being ignored, Maska will most likely be begging for attention.

Although our little husky loves camping, is quiet and well behaved, it still is very overwhelming! And it helps him gain confidence when things go well & he gets to meet new friends & he doesn't feel threatened.

This likely should go without saying but you might be surprised....picking up after your pet, even after dark, makes all of our pets more welcome in any camping situation.....

Please post if you figure out a good solution for the cat box. At home we cut a pet door in the interior door to our garage so the litterbox doesnt have to be in the house. In the small confines of the trailer, If kitty goes in the night will you have to get up and scoop b/c of odor? We're not having any luck finding somebody to cat sit over Christmas so our furkid may be joining us. She hates the car but also hates being alone. Too bad catnip isnt stonger and the effect last longer, lol. I dont want to use harsher drugs.

Good advice. I never approach a dog without first talking to the owner. Even then it's with caution. Dogs like humans have different personalities some extremely shy, some aggressive and defensive, some tolerant, and some just down right friendly. What ever the case don't push yourself at the animal, let them come to you.
