Meet Farley (half Pomeranian, half we-don't-know) waiting for me to get the s'mores stuff together for the campfire at Gull Lake COE Campground near Brainerd, MN. He's a good camper, just a bit yippy (it's the Pomeranian side). He scared off a bear with his ear-piercing bark when we were camped at Moose Lake earlier this summer , so I think he gets to come every time.
I don't leave him in the camper as I'm pretty sure he'd bark and annoy the neighbors, but I sometimes leave him in the van with windows and rear vents opened for fresh air. He usually just curls up on the sheepskin on my seat and snoozes. I don't leave him there very long without checking on him - 15 minutes or so. I think he thinks I'm just shopping and knows I'll be back shortly.

"I don't leave him there very long without checking on him - 15 minutes or so. I think he thinks I'm just shopping and knows I'll be back shortly."

I read somewhere that dog's can not tell time, so every time I have to leave my two, I say to them "I'm going to the store and will be right back" they lay down and upon my return, be one hour or 3, they haven't moved. Once home though they become my shadow, room to room, where ever I go.

My dog gets fed every afternoon at the same time. If I am 10 minutes late, she "hounds" me. Shifting to daylight savings time is a struggle until she readjusts. I joke that she is getting a wrist watch for Christmas.

That is true, 5pm is dinner time and you can set the clock by my dog's actions. Maybe it is that dogs can not tell the length of time, one hour is the same as 4 hours to them, but you are correct, they can tell you when it is time to eat.

I'm still in the rehab phase, so we haven't camped in our egg yet. Last year we put us and both dogs in a 8x10 family tent. We use two Xpens (30" high version) to keep them close by. I"m thinking of using popup kennels outside for sleeping at night. We'll see.
Great photo!

Here's a picture of us camping with the dogs.

Turns out both dogs want to sleep in side the camper. I can't believe they fit

We always take Baxter when we camp. He rides in the truck on a special platform on the folded down rear seats, and sleeps with us in the trailer. When we had the pop-up, it was the folded down dinette or front bunk. Now that we have the Escape, we set up the front dinette as a bed for him, so can peer out the side windows.

Malibu (named after the rum..) our female miniature schnauzer is very much our fur-kid & it's a rare occasion that we don't have her along with us.

As miniature schnauzers do not shed, have no doggie odour (with a weekly bath..) & are less than 20lbs...they are wonderful dogs to have along in an RV.

We've also had great success keeping her contained (schnauzers have a HUGE prey instinct..) by having a "Kitty Walk" stroller, which allows us to take her almost anywhere you can take a baby in a human stroller.

For those who may be interested, here's the link to "Kitty Walk"... Kittywalk - Outdoor Cat Enclosures, Pet Strollers, Dog Beds

Shorty and Weener.....my camping bassets. This was my first season with the Scamp. They understand it's home away and wait by the door to be let in for bed MUCH sooner than I may be ready. I suppose camping is exhausting for the typical couch hound :-). But, Since we're still working on getting used to this type of camping, the dogs settle in to the Jeep if more than 15 minutes with AC on or top off the Jeep in the shade. If it's too hot, they aren't left alone. In my next life I want to be a dog with an owner like me :-). Pure easy street!

Funny! The whole reason I got into RVing is because of my dogs. I used to do the Porsche then BMW sports car thing but got a 4 legged family member and another to keep him company. I ended up buying a Toyota "Seabreeze" for a place to keep them. I soon realized that I didn't like hooking up and unhooking every time I wanted to go somewhere. Plus, if I stopped anywhere hot I can't leave the dogs in a vehicle without the AC going. A small camper with AC where they can be left comfortably works perfect for me while I'm out eating or shopping.

glad i found this doggie thread. i had a mini schnauzer for 15 yrs and now have a shihtzu/maltese/yorkie mix. i taught her to be good around horses when she was young-i didnt do that with the schnauzers and it became a problem. but my problem with her is she scratches on the screens in my casita if i leave her alone in there...and there are a lot of screens! i'm wondering if anyone has this problem...i'm trying to figure out how to put a temporary barrier for the few times i have to leave her alone.

the schaunzers kayaked with me for years...but i havent gotten the new one in the boat yet. soon i hope.

malibu has a longgggg beard! mine got loose twice in their long lives and both times they were gone! twice local ppl caught them and held them til i could catch up.

We have a 5 yo JRT and 6mo old JRT. The older girl has been with us several times, but the younger boy has only been once for an over nighter.

The smaller smooth coat is the girl, the larger rough coat is the boy. As you can see they also go on the boat with us.

I have seen many people at dog agility trials use a nylon "pop-up" dog crates. They range from really lite weight frame of wire that springs into shape such as this one Boots & Barkley® Large Pop Open Dog Kennel : Target

To some that have thin poles such as one would find in a bag chair or dome tent. Such as this one. Amazon.com: Firstrax N2-36 NOZTONOZ Sof-Krate Indoor/Outdoor Pet Home: Pet Supplies

Some are pretty heavy duty material, others are pretty lite duty.

Since they are not metal if the dog really digs at the screen in one or does a lot of chewing they can damage it. On the other hand they take up little space and weigh very little and take a lot of damage before becoming unusable.

Helps if your dog is already crate trained at home to be comfortable being inside it. Our girl considers her crate to be her private "cave" and will choose it as a resting place on her own.
