Have Dog Will Travel!

How about some discussion among those of us who bring our dogs along? I bring my australian shepherd with me to agility trials in a 13' Scamp. We love it! Not much room for anything else on the floor, and I keep a lot of stuff in my vehicle. She sleeps under the bunk. I set up portable fencing all around the camper to make a big play yard.

I met Roy from Ontario's dogs, Rhodesian Ridgebacks, last year. They take them with them for some kind of training/shows, and set up playgrounds for them. Beautiful dogs! Big dogs!

We are cat people but have not tried to bring any of our cats. We travel to see the sights.

I camp a lot with my four corgis. I started using tie outs as well as an xpen though, for the weight. How many xpens do you use to surround the trailer, what size, what kind? One of my boys can escape an ex pen so easier to put him on a tie out.

I actually call the trailer the dog house. I travel for extended periods with two McNabs (short haired Border Collie). My 16' is set up specifically for one human (me) and the 2 dogs. They each have their own bed (den), and other accommodations. One den is a space I made in the lower part of the closet next to the stove. The other is under the dinette. They like to hole up when it storms. It's hard to imagine better traveling companions. I also have a special compartment built into the access cab of my truck where they ride down the road. It has a lexan barrier with holes for plenty of air, a padded floor, and other amenities

I'd like to see your portable fencing. I've experimented with various ideas, but haven't really found a great solution. Something that packs small and light, but opens big and strong would be great. That's a tough one. My dogs won't escape from anything that they are put into. I could use cardboard, but I worry about other dogs or animals getting in. I bought a portable chicken coop that is made of wire mesh panels that screw together. It is pretty nice but takes up room and is kind of a hassle to set up. The same thing in alumimun would be nice, but doesn't exist.

The title to this thread conjures up images of Richard Boone taking Jon Provost's place on "Lassie" as little Timmy Paladin.
The intro could be disastrous though with Lassie center screen and Paladin doing that quick draw thing!

It's Electronet - electrified livestock netting. We also have sheep so that is why I had some in the first place. I don't actually electrify it when I'm using it for my dog, but I supposed one could in order to keep other things out. A roll is 156' long and weighs a couple of pounds. Rolls up pretty small. Works really really well.

I have used 6 to 8 of those x pens around the camper if making a yard around it. I have also used one x pen with a x-pen cover on it for the escape artists.
Dogs sleep in kennels under the beds at night. I have Maltese so they don't take up much room.

That is awesome!! My gosh I've been looking for years for something like that and never heard of it! Course I have never hung around any sheep ranchers. Even the 42" 164' roll double spike is just $129 and weighs just 15 pounds . The option to electrify is a great bonus too.
Thankyou for that tip!
David

"What's that Lassie? What's the problem?
Timmy fell in the well?
Yes Lassie, you are right. That's the third time this week that idiot kid fell in.
So what do you think I should do Lassie?
Yes, you're right, Lassie. Let's see what's on TV."

My dog, Addie, is my sidekick and always goes with me anywhere I go. Exceptions are work and really hot weather. She's already claimed the corned of the bench seat on my Boler. I've only had it few days and am still cleaning. I'm amazed at 60 lb. she can curl up in-between the kitchenette and wall and leave most of the bench free. (border collie, golden retriever X)
