Airstreamin' with Fido

I'm not even a dog owner, but I really appreciated the interesting and insightful piece contributed by one of our AS club members (Keith Lund, DVM) to our latest WBCCI club newsletter. Much of this may have been covered in previous posts/threads but I think it is worth a read for any Airstream and canine enthusiast. The embedded link takes you to the newsletter page on the WBCCI website for Utah's Wasatch Airstream Club (this is not an unsafe phishing link), where you can find the article starting on p. 2. Keith put a lot of time and effort into this article, and I thought it has potential interest and benefits beyond our modest AS Club circle. Hope you enjoy it.

Happy to share... I agree it's interesting and useful. Keith and his wife are great folks that we got to know at our last UWAC rally; nice to have a vet around with so many dogs and dog lovers around.

Regards - Ron

Well, our family now has a dog and we get to see how this first-time ASer does shortly. She's a well-natured Lab/Retriever mix but just a pup and new to the family.

We have a few things to figure-out but it's just a short trip. If anyone has pointers on camping with larger dogs (45# now but still growing), I'm interested.

Here's Luna... she came to us via the Humane Society of Utah.

Utah man,
We camp with our adult Golden.
Here are some tips I have.

1-bottled water. We bring a 5 gallon water can filled with water from home, or use bottled water for the dog. A small price to pay to know your pet won't have tummy trouble from unfamiliar water.
2-chuck it. This is the #1 best possible use of $20 if you have one of the sporting dogs. It's a toy that has a tennis ball and a long, curved plastic throw handle. You can throw the ball about twice as far as you could with your arm. Best part is you don't have to touch the slobbery ball when picking it up. This lets you exercise your dog while you stand in 1 place. Many campgrounds have dog off-leash areas.
3-ask your vet. Ask your vet what dosage of benadryll your dog should be given for something like a bunch of bee stings or poison ivy. It's a pretty big dose compared to humans. Be prepared.
4-flashlight on a headband. You will like to have this little gizmo to "pick up" after your dog on that last walk before bedtime. Hands free flashlight. Makes it easier to do a dirty job.
5-picnic table or tailgate. Both are excellent for brushing out your dog. Saves your back.

And thank you so very, very much for considering a rescue pup. All of ours are rescued, great travelers, and grand companions. Here are the latest two (of 4 total). All under 22 pounds each. These guys are a bonded pair picked up off the street. Total cuddlers Click image for larger version

Thanks, rmkrum - cute pair, glad they are good companions/travelers. Luna is a bit too high on energy to be a cuddler, at least now. She's definitely my daughters dog at this point.

Congratulations on your new baby.

I keep all of Lily's treats and other supplies right by the door, allowing me to brush her, clip her nails, grab poop bags, etc., as I am going out or before coming in...just makes it easier for walks and to groom her outside.

She will likely get into the travel routine quickly, and love it...new places to sniff and do her business, animal smells to excite her, and most of all, being with her people.

Enjoy.

Maggie

I was concerned because Molly had never been in the truck farther than the groomers. When we decided to evacuate for Irma, I took her 650 miles. She was an absolute delight. Getting a 75 pound dog into the back seat of the truck was a hassle but after she got in, she laid down and I never heard a peep until we stopped.
I have a cover for the seat that attaches to the front and back headrests, and a harness that clips to a seatbelt so she won't go flying in a sudden stop. She lays down and snoozes.
I think I solved the lifting problem by getting a folding ramp. I'll leave it folded on the floor of the back seat until needed.

Thanks, Mollysdad - sounds like an excellent traveler. Luna has a form of seat restraint, and a hammock used to protect the upholstery in our Q5. She's been a good traveler excited to take my daughter back and forth to school. This will be her first trip in the F250 but I expect she'll do well with the girl by her side on the longer trip (couple of hours.)

Regards - Ron
