New to me web site for planning with dogs
My wife sent me this link earlier today to check out options for Yellowstone N.P for Scamping.
It was featured in Bark Magazine
for finding dog-friendly camp sites, many places apparently are not commercial locations.
Those of you seriously into dogs likely already know the magazine as well as Whole Dog Journal
Turns out I was already aiming us to one of the key locations there in any case.
So if you do not yet know about this one might be worth checking out.
There has been a lot of back and forth discussions on the Take Your Dog Along site (run by an Escapees member) about dogs in N.P.s. Loads of restrictions in N.P. , usually due to a long history of irresponsible owners who do not clean up or control their dogs.
Apparently using a pet stroller allows them to be "Taken along" and they do not need to stay in a potentially hot/cold trailer AKA boon docking parked and can go along where otherwise restricted access is in place. Many on the TYDA site commented they just leave Fluffy and Fido in their behemoth MotorHome... clearly not the style of the FB crowd. So a new pet stroller in on the way from Amazon.
We almost wimped out completely on doing this trip, thinking it might be too cold*. All the wonderful suggestions from other members here and talking to neighbors who live part of the year in Wy. we decided to still go for it in early September.
*OK we lived in Central America for 25+ years and are NOT cold hardy souls
