thank you Mustang65. I have thought about taking our Amazon on longer trips but will leave him at home with someone checking in on him.

If anything, get a wireless thermometer so you can tell the temperature conditions in the trailer. Ours get hot- too hot for any animal to travel in there (Given it's anything close to 90 degrees outside). I would be very hesitant- would not be able to live with myself if anything happened. I have 4 smaller dogs that all ride in the truck with the back seat flipped up. Used to have a 100# German Shepherd. He was either in the truck or in the back with a shell on and back cab window open so I could tell the temperature and hear how he was doing. If the conditions aren't right to take them, leave them at home.

A comment as to dogs in crates should that be the mode selected.

A professional dog mover mentioned that it is important to cushion the crate floor when moving dogs in vehicles. The bouncing during longer trips will make them car sick.

Apparently one method to reduce the bounce is to place the crates on a thick foam pad of some sort. Padding inside has a tendency to get moved around and bunched up.

Depending upon the trailer style/size there can be a bunch of bouncing. Proper ventilation in a typical camper trailer would also be a concern for me.

FWIW. vic

We have a Blue Fronted Amazon that LOVES traveling and camping. At home he sees us bring out his TRAVEL cage and he starts getting all excited. His crate sits on top of the big dog crate in the TV and he can see out while traveling.
