I've had far more problems with unruly children when camping rather than unruly dogs. Our little Yorkie Coco goes with us every time, and she adds alot of fun to the trip. She's not a barker though, and we do pick up after her.

Just to rile everybody up, I can't wait until Charly crosses the rainbow bridge. I'd like to visit the farm museum instead of sitting in the car with the dog. I'd like to enjoy a beer and a burger at a funky patio bar instead of taking the drive-thru lane at a fast food restaurant.
She may make the trip soon, being an 11-year-old beagle with arthritis and likely bladder cancer.
Sorry, gotta go. She's barking at the neighbour for some reason.

Way back in 2000 when I ordered my 13 Scamp the A/C was pretty much for Mitzi who was 14 at the time and then lived to be 18 1/2.

The A/C gets used infrequently now as Lily loves it outside under the awning inside her yard. I do kick the A/C on for her if it's a hot day and I'm leaving her in the trailer and then once and awhile if there are mosquitoes that drive both of us inside.

I've come to hate those retracable leashes as well. I know these peope who have no consideration for others with their dog aways out at the maximum length and annoying everyone. They think nothing of it and actually get huffy if you anything to them. Just rude.

We are on the last one now and I won't be getting another. I do carry regular leashes that I use as well. And yes, dogs learn and behave better if you use a short regular leash.

I didn't realize one needed an engineering degree to operate a retractable leash with one moving button........we love ours and we walk 3 small dogs at the same time without getting wound up! No rocket science involved.

Hey Charlie. Maybe you could explain for me, the purpose of a retractable leash. I don't get it. To me having a dog on a leash means having control of the dog, and the shorter the leash, the more control.
We have friends who use a retractable leash, and even though their dog is very well trained, when they let it run to the end of that leash, they are no longer in charge.

Well I can tell you that Bailey my 10 yr old miniature Dacshund and I are already planning our camping adventures - before we even have a camper. He is a veteran traveler with 13 plane flights (in the cabin), a cross country trek, and numerous regional jaunts. He is a good dog and fellow passengers are always amazed that he was on the flight unlike the crying baby in the rear of the plane. Frankly he is more important than many family members. He is loving and loves meeting new people. One of the characteristics that I love about him is that even though he is very loving and loyal to me he likes making new friends and senses when the individual may need a little more affection or attention. This past Christmas we visited friends that have recently adopted three siblings - it was our first time meeting the children. The middle child had been badly abused in a foster home and is more withdrawn. Bailey immediately sensed this and he and the child became inseparable with Bailey even sleeping with the child. He spent time with the other children and had fun but was more focused on his new buddy. The bottom line is that I want him to enjoy his life as much as I do mine. He gives me as much as I give him. PS: I do think that it's important for dogs to go to obedience class when they are young. It has made both of our lives easier.

We traveled for two-years with a very large white male cat named Lucky.

Buying a supply of cat food that he WOULD eat was a problem, as many small stores didn't carry the brand and flavor he wanted that week. Sometimes he wanted dry cat food...other times the food HAD to come in a can!

Lucky was agreeable to taking walks in a harness a with retractable lease...both blue, of course, to match his blue eyes!

When I say agreeable, I mean that he would take walks...but only in directions that I didn't want to go! Like around and under a neighbor's RV in the middle of the night! More than once I just knew I was about to be shot!

Lucky enjoyed sitting on a campsite table and watching people walk by. He really enjoyed people coming over to pet and admire him. It was a great way to meet fellow campers, and we met some good friends that way.

Lucky was a heck of a lot of trouble in many ways. But, even though he was a bit grumpy as he got older, we loved him...and cried when he died.

I don't use a retractable until the dog is already very obedient in terms of sit/come/stay which lets me control the length played out (up to 12 ft.) The dogs get more exercise running back & forth on a longer leash to sniff everything they come across. When needed I shorten the length as required to avoid bothering others.

Travelling with pets

From post 25

"Our dogs are rescues who spent years in cages for breeding so being able to let them bask in the great outdoors even on the end of a leash brings us a great deal of fulfillment."

Cate. We have a Shitzu who is also a rescue dog. Are you and Dan coming to St. Malo for the rally?

Yup Adrian, we plan on being there with our fur family in our "North End Chic" SurfSide. It's a work in progress!! We might even bring my mother and her fuzz ball, though she (mother) could end up being more of a handful than the dogs. LOL You actually can't keep your mom on a short leash, retractable or not!
