I take my 14 yr old border collie mix, Romeo. He just wants to be near me and is a "no maintenance" dog. He's great company too!

We full time with 3 dogs, one is 16 yo though and sleeps all day. We have one dog bed under the kitchen table and one in the bunk house room. 2 are ****zu's and about a 40lb. mutt haha they ride in the Excursion on dog beds in the back for HOURS without having to potty. Good travel companions

2. You know your dog craps on the ground why not pick up after it?

A little common sense goes along way.
To respond to your post, please do not take offense. You dislike dogs so you already have a bias towards them.....most dogs bark because of noises and guess who it would be who is making noise at a campground.....the other campers who most often breaking the quiet time hours etc. Humans yell talk loud and play music....it is no different. Children cry etc.

As for your other point of not picking up dog crap....who said no one was not picking up after them.....it also cuts both ways though....lots of people who often complain have their own issues that they should deal with...garbage etc.
It is all about respect......I fully intend to bring my dog with us when we go to our seasonal site and I have no doubt that he will bark on occasion when people make noise etc, but it will not be his fault as he will only be responding to the individuals who make noise.
We all need to take a good look at our selves to ensure that everyone is enjoying our camping experiences.
Common sense is not all that common.....

The discussion of dogs in campgrounds can clearly be a sensitive one from both points of view. However the OP`s initial post was not intended to start a debate, but was rather asking for tips about camping with dogs. Let`s get back on track.

I love bringing my dog with us, I couldn't see leaving him at home, and he wouldn't have any of it. Last time we were headed out, he got in the truck before we were ready and wouldn't get out! I just put the windows down and left him in there while we finished up; he was happy as a clam.

As for pointers, I have only a couple:
1) keep them well hydrated,
2) pick up after them (I use whatever I have, but AKC makes some nice products),
3) keep their paws clear and their claws trimmed, nothing like a burr in the pads to ruin his day, or having long claws that cause harmful walking posture
4) as mine gets older, I find myself having to slow him down a little and help him up the stairs or into the truck. He has a little arthritis, so he doesn't get around as well as he used to, but he still tries to run around like a puppy! And sometimes we just have to let him rest in the trailer for a while; he doesn't like it, but he tolerates it and has not torn anything up since right after we adopted him (almost a decade ago!).

I think if you treat your dog like one of the family, they have as much fun (or more) as you do!

We walk our dogs a lot and they are very content to sleep when we do.
Lots of opportunities to play

Our dog does really well camping. Loves to take walks and will chill out under the table and relax when we do. Our problem is the car ride. He is 5 and we have never had an easy ride with him. he doesn't get sick he just gets sooo super excited. We crate him and it is still crazy. Is there a doggy downer??

Benadryl is safe for dogs; good for allergies and makes them sleepy. Google it to find out the dosage for your particular beast, but generally they tolerate it well. Try it at home first though as it actually makes some dogs more hyper instead of calming them down.

If I took ours for a short walk and gave him a benadryl before the trip, he'd be out like a light. But he travels well, so I don't have to worry about it. I use this treatment for thunderstorms (he gets CRAZY when it thunders), and sometimes it works.

sask834,no offense taken but I have a feeling one was taken with you as you steered the topic into another direction in the defense of dogs. I merely stated two tips.I think you should take another look at my post as you will see I stated CHRONIC barking not the occasional bark and simply pick up the dog crap as my second tip.
sask934 your right,common sense is not all that common which is probably due to the fact there is a fine line between a lack of common sense and stupidity.
