Sorry, allergies forbid any of the 3 cats or 2 dogs in the bedroom wing of our house. I prefer breathing and sleeping and the dogs don't know any better because that's the way they have been brought up. they have a GREAt time pestering the skunk (love that!) and armadillos that live on our property, catch rabbits and the big field rats and also keep the coyotes away. The cats are responsible for the barn. They are all very spoiled, and loved. Our lab mix is the best with kids. She races towards them ,a few feet away she drops and wiggles to have her belly scratched . The cats also stop drop and roll to have their tummies rubbed. The dogs also have a duty to keep the free range chickens safe- which they take very seriously- we have lost only one chicken to a lost abandoned dog, which a neighbor then adopted. So they have a pretty good animal life as I am here all day with them. So dont feel sad for them! silver suz

Roger on the rabies certificate. At NY State Parks they take the tags but would rather the certificates, id's the dog.
Sounds like your dog has one of those older souls.

Dangerous, and cruel, maybe, but not illegal. Why are there horse and cattle trailers? And a friend has a dog trailer, for hauling his Greyhounds.

BTW, there was a thread about this a while back, I can't find it now, of course. It went pretty in-depth.

The confusion may come from the fact that (in my state at least) it is illegal for anyone to ride in a travel trailer while it is being towed, at least that's my understanding. But I think that's people, not animals. Your state may be different.

Furbabies in RV Parks

Ha - We bought the Airstream for our Girls - four legged girls that is.

Having not had the pleasure of having children (well as some may have it) our furbabies are our kids, family, friends, bedwarmers, and couch cuddlers.

We sure hope dogs are allowed -cause wer'e all going camping or non.

We probably should have got a 24-27' but at least this way if we are in the back they can have their own couches in the front and if we are in the front they can cuddle in the back - but you know what will happen - there will be all four of us on this little 48X75" double bed

Can't wait to meet some of you guys out in the RV Parks. And I know our girls will love to meet everyone - Lab's & Goldens are social bunnies!

PS. dogs in the trailer - now that is real smart - about as smart as having a loose or even tied up dog in the back of an open pick up truck! Ever watched them try and balance - or how about breath! fumes, biting cold air not to mention close to g-force winds that swirl in the rear - okay enough I will really get going.....

Shari,
Reading over your statement..leaves me to wonder, You meant to say, "legal"..right?
No dogs here, just a sweet, lovable cat.
He would never ride in the trailer, let alone the Burb.
When we go away, he either gets boarded up at the local Vet or, someone stays home with him.
I'll say this much from my own personal observation; most nearly all dog owners are very good about keeping the pets in check. About the only thing I would comment on is: There seems to be a very, very small percentage of pet owners who, for whatever reasons, just never clean up the mess they leave.
It's nice to see the pets taking the owners out for a stroll.
ciao

It illegal here in IL to ride in the trailer when it's moving. We too tried this going from our campsite to the dumpstation when we were kids camping with our family. It was a very strange exp to say the least........one I couldn't dream of on a trip. It's funny though how a bunch of folks that come over say, that's neat, one of you can drive, while the other sleeps in the back.......yea...right. Must be nice living in never, never land.....maybe I'll go visit them someday!

Our two cats hate being in a carrier in the truck... cry the whole time. But I'm not letting them roam around loose and get under my feet either.

They do just fine in the trailer, but it is 9,000-10,000 lbs riding on triple-axles with shock absorbers. Probably rides smoother than the truck.

I close all the curtains except those across the front, put their litter box up against the couch on one side, and water and food bowls on a tray up against the couch on the other side. They either sleep on the couch or lay across the back watching the road.

After reading Moe's post, one bit of info I left out is that the law here is only for humans. Anything else is fair game.

I will say that 3 axles would be better as I found first hand that 2 are much smoother than the single axle I had on the Bambi!

Here in Colorado, and other western mountain states anything left outside at night is up for grabs by mountain lions, ceyotes(sp?) and bears When we were still tent camping, we had a bear go right by our little two man tent one night and last year I heard that a guy was mauled (bitten) right thru his tent!

We travel with our little 12lb rat terrier always. She loves to hike, but sometimes we have had to leave her in the trailer (absolutely true that National Parks forbid dogs on trails-Rky Mt. NP does and so does Arches in Utah) We never go for long stretches, and leave window open and fan on. She is a quiet girl. So far, no CG have said "No", private, NP, Forest Service or otherwise.

Hi All,
Our 8 pound peekapoo, Cookie, goes nuts when the Argosy pulls up in the yard. She loves to go campng.
We have never had a problem with campgrounds, and we keep health certificates on board just in case.
Cookie sleeps where she pleases, even if she takes up a lot of room for such a small dog.
Our only problem is she loves people and other animals, and will try to greet everyone.
Baby, the siameese cat does not go camping. We leave someone in charge of him to feed, water, and play with him.

Again I must remind you that too is a misleading statement, as it implies all states.That is just not the case. Illegal for humans to ride in the trailer in "some states", but not in all~
A list of some examples
South Dakota laws states:
Quote:
Riding is permitted in pickup camper and riding is permitted in fifth wheel with audible or visual device with tow vehicle and safety glass.
Alaska law states:
Quote:
Passengers allowed to ride in pickup camper (truck camper) only.
Arizona laws states:
Quote:
Passengers are allowed to ride in fifth wheel, travel trailer and pickup camper.
Colorado laws states:
Quote:
Passengers are allowed to ride in fifth wheels or pickup campers but not in travel trailers.

Indiana
Quote:
Riding of passengers in fifth wheels, travel trailers and pickup camper is allowed
The list goes on and on, with many restrictions limiting individuals to ride only in pickup campers only~!
For the law in your state, check this website for the latest laws 2004
http://www.rvadvice.com/travel/AK.html#RV%20Road
Once more~
"As to whether it's a good practice might defy good common sense but, as we can plainly see, not the law in all states~!"

It has been 3 going on 4 months fulltiming for me down here in Florida. I have my dog Cali with me and she just loves it! She has turned into a very active dog since we have been down here and both of us have lost some weight, due to her long walks, that were not possible during Ohio's harsh winters. The campground I am in would rather have campers with dogs than children!
