i know carol used to ride...are there other horse lovers here too?

my 9lb mix couldnt get her mouth around a tennis ball until she was 2. now i stab the tennis ball and make a flap...but sometimes she gets the whole thing in her mouth

i have a pic of her on my album in my profile but i havent figured out how to move it here

and -in some ways i feel like you about letting her bark. she really never barks for no reason when at home or in camper. and i like to know when someone or something is around. i was glad to read about the pom mix a few pages back scaring off a bear with barking...the bears have been coming in houses and cars around here.

i need to stop her from barking when on leash tho...i guess she has to remember i am the big dog and will take care of her.
We have a variety of horses at the barn, but our show horses are Arabian ( purebred ) and Anglo-Arabs.
Yes, I think you are right, there are several horse lovers on this forum ( doesn't "everybody" love horses !? )
This is going way off topic....so I will stop at this one, but this our latest baby....little three year old..... I have totally falling in love with her.....

We have a couple of quarter horses at the barn. One especially, a big 'ol gelding that is a sweet trail-ride horse.
I just love the Arabs though....that one in the pic....she is my high maintenance, skittish, drama queen, brat-horse. Just the way I like 'em
......hmmmm, which probably says more about me that it does about her......

Back on topic though, my dog is always reminding me that "dogs are superior to horses.....you can't hold a horse on your lap, and they can't sleep on your bed either....."

On tie outs that won't allow dog to tangle we have had really good results with a home made one. Consists of 1/8 inch cable about 7 ft. long. Loop at each end to stake it down with. Attached to the cable by a ring is a 6 ft chain with a typical leash clip.

Cable is staked down flat with the ground ( I use barn spike nails with a washer AKA my favorite tent/tarp stake) The dog gets about 12 ft of linear travel (cable + chain) but only 6 ft side to side (chain only). Since the travel area is a rectangle I find it easier to place so our fur kid can get from camper to sitting area without having enough side travel to get wrapped around things.

I would also add I carry a hammer to pull up the stakes, and even our 55 lb husky mix could not pull it loose. Side pull creates "slip" of ring on cable. End pull is anchored against stakes on both ends. We had a really lite one with string leash instead of chain for our 7 lb shih tzu.

I take my dogs along when camping. I have a roof I can put over my x pens when having an escape artist. I do have one named Houdini that climbed a 4 ft high fence tonight, she is 8 lb Mlatese. I find that some dogs will just lay around while others will do anything to get out of their area when camping. Even my little 3 lb male could climb a 3 1/2 food fence and meet me at the camper door if I did not bring him with me to the camper. I would barely make it into the camper to get something and either Houdini or Nick would be there at the door.
Those little blue pet trainers for under $20.00 do work for barking dogs if you train them with it. Because I raise Maltese I have taken many dogs with me over the years (once 12 puppies and the moms and dads - never again!) X pens are heavy but the most sturdy as the dog can not bite through them. My houdini is named Houdini for a reason. She will bite through anything that is not wire. She is my escape artist.
As for the screen door, I am going to put plexaglass over my screen this year where the dogs can reach the screen, as I left two dogs out in the camper last summer one day thinking I could trust them in the camper for a short while - I came back to find they messed with the screen. This year they will have to dig through plexaglass. Usually I kennel them when leaving the camper. Air is on and we are never gone long. Neighbor is there is air would go off or anything like that. I keep my bases covered if we should go out to eat or run to the store.
As for the barking, being as I show dogs and have multiple dogs at the camper I have always debarked them for over 30 years. Some people hate that idea, think it is cruel, so no bad remarks please. It is my choice and it works for me and my dogs that are never yelled at to keep quiet. It sure beats yelling at them, having to bring them inside etc. They can bark as loud as they want and do not disturb the neighbors. If having only one or two dogs, the blue pet trainer should work.
My dogs are the hit of the campground and people stop by just to visit because of the dogs.

thanks for sharing about your maltese. so far etta doesnt climb over fences or think to dig under. she digs. in sand and mud...she doesnt know she's a diva dog. more of a tomboy.

and she's pretty good at listening when i say "stop". the worst thing she did was attack the groomers when she was a puppy. then the trainer said it was the groomers fault. she's 7 lbs. just tell her to "knock it off". she knows when i'm serious and she will have a 5 min timeout in the bathroom if she doesnt straighten out. not sure what ceasar would think about that.

i think if i leave fan on when i leave camper she will probably settle down. when i'm at the beach without elec there usually isnt anyone around
