Well we LOVE our dogs. We plan our vacations around them. Just recently went to Texas from N.C. for a wedding and our dogs cost $125.00 each, one way to carry on, $500.00 total. Teacup (Mimi is 2 1/2 yrs old and 5 1/2 lbs) and a Schnoodle (Buddy is 15 yrs old and 8 lbs). Talk about Sheesh! I won't do that again. Of course it would've cost that much to board them. I think my wife would probably board me first before the teacup. LOL. Oh, when talking about play-pens (which we use for the puppies), isn't it funny that now their referred to play-yards and not pens. Not allowed to put kids in a pen now, it has to be a play-yard.

I bought my camper specifically because the Air Force doesn't let me bring my dog on ATC (military) flights. I can't see flying with my dog on commercial flights either.

Being retired, I'd rather have my dog and travel by boat or with my camper. She loves being in the car and behaves herself while traveling.

I don't use any fencing. I do leash her at times. She needs off leash run around time. Fortunately she stays close most of the time. Portuguese Water Dogs are known for that.

I am very pleased with my dog. I trained her to close the door behind her when she comes in. For the last week, every time I met her out I might I left the door cracked. She pushes it open tentatively--she is a bit afraid if closing doors, opened it and walked around without any prompting, looks, or gestures from me closed it on her own.

Time to teach her something new.

I told my dog what you wrote, and she said, "I have trained my human to close the door".
Maybe you could work on some of the following with your dog :

We've got a 12 yo 9 lb Maltese. Just retired and we're going to be starting more extended trips this year, up to 5 weeks. For 2 week trips we have no problem dropping her off with family but won't do it for longer. Not sure how this is going to work out as she may not like staying in the trailer if we go out, she seems to bark for a bit when we leave her alone in the house but settles down pretty quick. Will have to do a bit of experimenting with the radio on and such and see what happens, or she goes everywhere with us. Thankfully she's small and doesn't mind the Sherpa carrier, but it still limits what one can do if sightseeing is the goal. Headed to Yellowstone where they are pretty restricted, whereas a month or so next winter in Fl should not be an issue.

Good luck on that. My wife claimed that Charly, the beagle, just slept when we left her in the trailer. I wasn't comfortable with that at all.
I won the argument when, parked close by another couple, they told us that the dog had barked, yelped and whined the entire time we were gone.
I think the problem gets worse as Charly ages.

So, my wife tours the museums and galleries, and I sit in the car with the dog. Told you I won the argument.

I have a long leash that I use for my dog, tied to the trailer. I bought my dog his own chair and made him stay in it. He loves it.

This a picture of Buddy at the Outer Banks of N.C. He is now 16 years old but doesn't look his age. He has cataracts; the sun hurts his eyes, so he actually loves wearing his glasses. He thinks he's pretty cool in them also.
