It's kinda hard to tell if our Mindi eats differently when camping - she always eats everything available, even dropped lima beans and pieces of lettuce. Once she even ate a dropped peanut, shell and all. If it's edible, and you drop it, it's GONE.

One lab likes to eat and drink out of stainless steel bowls. I told her she will have to "get over it", we will be going to plastic (having to watch the weight pulling with a van) I'm sure getting to go on a trip will smooth that over with her.

Any experience with dry shampoo for dogs? They say being prepared is the key to camping.....

Camping with a dog

My 5-year-old Brittany has been camping since he was a pup. At first, he wasn't allowed on the furniture at home. But the first time he got into my old trailer, he jumped right up onto the bed, where he could see out the windows. Of course, after that, there was no keeping him off the furniture at home. He loves people and very rarely barks (except to go potty), so barking at passers by has never been a problem while camping. The first few times out, he wouldn't pee or poop the first day. He'd spend all his "outdoor" time sniffing where every other dog had gone for the last forty years. Now he's pretty good about it - but we have to find the "perfect" spot. As for eating, he wouldn't eat for a couple of days the first several times we went out; he's much better about it now that he's had some camping experience.

My old trailer was only 7-1/2' wide, and when he was standing in the galley between the sink and the dinette, it was a chore to get around him. New trailer has a slider, so there will be plenty of room. Can't wait for our first outing in it. I'll tell you one thing, though, after a long cold day of hunting, it sure feels good to have him curled up next to me in bed at night.

Playing devil's advocate…
I hate camping with a dog. It's worse than camping with a toddler…
Where is the dog?
What is he eating that some other camper has left around?
Why is he barking at nothing, and waking the whole campground?
Why is he knocking over the neighbors kids?
Can we get him off the bed?
What is that smell?
Please tell me you have some horse tranquilizers!

My Tunces goes on every trip with us and she only sleeps with me in the back bed of our Hybrid. She does NOT like seafood at all but will eat all sorts of bad stuff she finds on her walks. She has never slept on the floor and has her own large day sofa at home and a regular bed at night. Talk about a Queen.

I do not like dogs however camping with dogs can go either way and it falls on the owner.I know we don't have any inconsiderate dog owners on this site but if we did I have two simple questions.
1. If you know your dog is a cronic barker and doesn't shut the hell up why bring it?
2. You know your dog craps on the ground why not pick up after it?

A little common sense goes along way.

IMO anyone who can't pick up their dogs waste should be asked to leave on the first offense. They are great companions but if they disrupt others camping experience, it is the owners responsibility to take action.

Well stated.
