LOL isn't that the truth. Currently being retrained myself in the newest and greatest training method.... hoping the dog finds it easier to learn than I do!

Good luck with the training. We used a trainer and learned a lot from her....funny thing.....I think she was training me more than the dog. We're both pretty well trained now......although my wife thinks I could use a little more!! Enjoy that dog....and.....safe travels!!

I don't get the whole campgrounds idea. . I avoid them and that is why I decided on a truck camper. I can park it anywhere including right by the front door of a rest stop, store or downtown parking place.

Though restops and the such are convenient, and I have used them for quick stopovers, campgrounds can often offer way more facilities it the form of washroom/showers, fire pits, tables, service hook-ups, laundry, convenience store, quiet, and so on. Plus, most of the ones I seek out are in a great setting.

I do mostly boondock, but do sometimes enjoy a campground when travelling on an extended holiday.

Halti collars work because the natural reaction of a dog to having their head/nose pulled down is to move back, so the dog quickly decides not to pull. Does have to fit the dog and requires dog have a chance to learn the desired behavior without triggers such as other dogs or squirrels to avoid extreme force. Our girl simply won't pull against it, she learned/knows the difference between that and regular leash.

As she gets older and mellows out a bit seldom use it, may still use it at public events with many dogs attending to avoid any temptation on her part to pull. She is calmer towards others on a halti then her regular collar. Less inclined to do her "oh boy people! My favorite!" approach to meeting folks.

Trainer always trains the handler, dog is just getting some practice in while you are learning how ;-)

I will pass this on whether it fit's or not. If you are training a dog make sure you are smarter than the dog. Sage advice from my father to me.

Your father had wisdom, most dogs are very good at training their owners. Owners good at training their dogs is sort of a maybe yes maybe no proposition.

True, some of the provincial parks are pretty amazing. I use military campgrounds often also. '

This weekend, I'm scouting some boondocking locations in forest lands. These don't allow camping but I don't think it will be a problem. I'm just looking for low impact camping, overnight parking mostly while I work on my boat. I am hoping I can find a horse barn that will allow me to camp.

I did find a free campsite not too far from my boat at a YMCA camp, provided kids are not present which gives me a number of weeks until Jun 22rd and after late August.

Part of being smarter is the ability to understand the dog you are training. Here is one "experts" view on training and head halters.
The Problem With Head Halters | Suzanne Clothier

Food for thought.

Well, two weeks of camping, mostly in COE, State or national forest campgrounds in about 9 different states and the verdict is? No problems. Who knew Ollie was a traveling dog! He loved having the back seat, along with his kennel to hang in while driving....and at campgrounds, he stayed quiet and happy on his leash the whole time. A few barks here and there if a dog went by....but not always....just occasionally so we never could figure out why some dogs required a bark and others didn't. However, it didn't bark on and on as some did. Well, because we won't let him!, he slept well on his bed in the camper and was altogether a happy camper dog and I don't believe he bugged anyone, any more than anyone bugged us! So, I'm happy to say, camping with my fur all is going to work just fine!,, thanks for all the advice. We mostly had very positive experiences at all the campgrounds....no loud music, parties or generators going all night...pleasant all around. Looking forward to our future travels. Karen

We are currently camping at Rocky Mountain RV park in Gardiner Montana with our dogs. Almost everyone here has one or more dogs, limit is two, but several people have four dogs,one person has two Bichon, one Maltese and one toy Poodle. The other person i happen to have known for about 16 years, they brought 4 Standard Poodles with them. The latter comes here every year and stays the month of May, then he comes back in September also. I guess because they are regulars and their dogs are extremely well trained (show and hunting), they are allowed to bring four in. We have been here a week, onky two times have i heard barking, one was from the 4 Poodles RV and it only lasted about 3 minutes; the other was from the dog next to us, an Australian Shepherd that if he is out when another dog goes by, he barks ferociously and tries to pull the senior owner's arm out of joint. I asked the first time we left the camper with our dogs in it if the dogs had been barking while we were gone and got a reply that they didnt even know we had dogs. We are at a private campground and i would give it a 10 on a scale of 1-10.

We are big dog people and we take them anywhere we possibly can. We have a couple of old timers and a younger one that does a great job pestering the older ones.

Sadie, soon to be 15


Patsy, 3

I spent the last 4-5 nights at a walmart. I suppose I'll have to switch to another one. The night guard was parked nearby and never said a word to me. I wanted to use the campground at the marina but they wanted $25 a night and I did not need any hookups. To date no one has used their campground. I expect that will change over the 4 th of Juky weekend. The town does not allow them to use rent space on week nights. Only three days around the weekend. If I could have negotiated a summer rate I would have but the "no week day" limitation was a deal breaker for me. I will continue to boondock.
