We sometimes leave our cockers Annie & Sadie inside the AS while we go to town or a short side trip, but never for more than a couple of hours, especially if it's at all warm. Even if temps are cool, we leave the AC on with the thermostat set for a comfortable temp and the vent and fantastic fan open and set to start up if it reaches a certain temp, to bring fresh air in... Don't forget to leave plenty of fresh water. If we know someone in the campground we will leave a key with them and ask them to check them if we are going to be gone longer than normal. We also leave a note on the door informing whomever that there are 2 dogs inside and a phone number to call if there is an emergency of some kind.

fulfilling funkill's call for info

The kennels were ordered through They are the bronze series. you can buy complete small kennels that you assemble. The panels come in 3' x 4'. I use them as 4' high, but you can use them as 3' high for smaller dogs. The kits come with 1 gate. I added extra panels so the pen size is the same as my awning. I also had to fabricate 3 panels so the dogs couldn't crawl under the MH. For this I use PVC plastic pipes from Lowes & faced them with plastic lattice. The lattice is held on with zip ties. I carry these on a cargo carrier on the back of the MH.

I don't want to hijack this thread with photos of my dogs. I'll send you some photos in a PM if I can figure out how.

Even crating them outside is not foolproof. I left Luke crated one time and went for a short bike ride. Just as I was getting back a huge storm started blowing through. As I got back to my camp there was my "neighbor" (who I had asked to keep an eye open) checking on Luke to see if he should go in my trailer or in the neighbor's until I got home.

We often leave our Chuahuahua in the trailer for a few hours during the day when we go fishing, this in the Sierra or in the coastal range. We leave the widows open and a fantastic fan running. Been doing this for years and have never had a problem.

If you are going to leave a pet unattended in your trailer, you might want to consider getting one of these: Free Pet Safety Pack

The package includes this sign that you can place in a window next to the door that indicates that pets are inside. You can also put your cell number on the sign for emergency notification. The package is offered free from the ASPCA. I think that the ASPCA is a very good organization and I support them.
