Great feedback

I had planned on a bath prior to our trips and I will take all the other suggestion to heart.

Thanks,

My daughter, a school teacher, could handle the dog "smell" very well. She was born with no sense of smell - which has been very helpful with some of the student's hygiene.

I even use the baking soda in the house. It works well to obsorb oders.

Be thankful you have a dog!

Hi, my dogs got a bath before leaving home and when necessary on the road; They fit [one at a time] in the shower/tub. We have what we call dog towels; Old towels for dogs to lay on, dry off from bath, and clean up messes. [mud, spills, Etc] But we are petless now, they all went to doggie heaven.

Good thread even though most of the posts are ommon sence solutions. Lynn and I are welcoming our new dog, first with our Airstream, tomorrow from a rescue agency. She is a mini pinscer and seems to be 'right' for us. Thanks for the 'common sense' posts. We appreciate the re-awaking of these tips.

I travel with 3 dogs, a Great Dane, Rott/Lab & a Shiba Inu. I guess I must be use to the smell or my sniffer is not up to snuff. My dogs never get a bath except for the occasional swim. The only time I really notice an odor is if its been raining and I put them to bed wet. Then I say "wow smells like dog" but hello I have dogs what do you expect! Have never had an "accident" in the trailer. They love to camp and spend most their time outside when we are on the road. I put them to bed as soon as it gets dark. I cover the the areas where they sleep with lots of old blankets. Vacuum on a regular basis even without carpet to keep the dog hair to a controled level (ya right). Try simply burning a candle when you are in the trailer.
I am going to have to put my Rott/Lab "Shane" down in the next few weeks. It will be so hard to take that first trip without her. She so loves the adventure!

You will be in my prayers.

Here she is, our new 'Streamer'. We got Lizzy (our choice of name) from a rescue home. She was rescued hours from her euthanization. I asked why would such a desireable dog be euthanized. She came from an area that has very high home foreclosures and many families have to abandon or turn the pets in. The animal control agencies are overwhelmed. Lizzy is a mini pinscher terrier mix about a year old and 20 lbs, not too big. Very friendly but confused, I'm sure from being handed of to many different people in the past 2 weeks. Here are a couple of not too prize winning photos but she 'wins' hearts. The economic atmostphere now is providing a very high select group of pets for adoption. If you can 'save' a valuable and loving life.
Neil.

Car dealerships use ozone generators on smelly cars. If the stink is bad, leave it on for a weekend once back home. (Not to be used with anyone in vehicle). Get's rid of tobacco smoking, have tried it two vehicles.

A pet is a great reason to add a built-in vacuum.

Neil & Lynn, Lizzy is beautiful! With stability, routine and love, she'll come out of her shell and reveal her personality to you. That's how it was for my Samm. It might take a little work, but the effort will be rewarded with unconditional love. Thanks again for rescuing!
