That's what I said when my last dog died... then two weeks later a puppy showed up. Now he's my best friend.

We use Dog Vacay service when we travel and have been pleased with the sitters we have found. Check them out....works for us.

We were just at a rally in Memphis and lots of doggies left in trailers whilst the owners went on a 3 hour tour (not that tour). One person stayed behind to tend all the trailers/pets and YES, the power was out for the 3 hours whilst the owners were gone; outside temp was 90+. Luckily the caretaker was excellent with the pets. none damaged

I'm sorry, but I have to be able to leave my trailer for a few hours while the dog is with me. I can't take him with me everywhere. And I love my dog.

We use the ConnectSense Temperature & Humidity Sensor (Amazon) as well as a Nest in our Airstream. You can set the temperature sensor up to phone home as little as every 5 minutes and set rules for alerts. It runs on DC power (as does our networking equipment) so in the event of a power failure it will still alert us if the temperature rises. Same goes for the Nest with smoke/CO. Obviously it's not 100% fool proof but it's a huge step in the right direction.

I have used Temperature Alert for monitoring both power loss and temperature when we leave our cat in the Basecamp with air-conditioning. You pay only for the months you use it by pausing and unpausing the service.

As per KJRitchie we leave our dog with 2 fantastic fans running (1 exhaust and 1 intake) and have done this many times . We didn't hike with friends recently due to the AS being in a sunny spot and didn't want to chance the heat that day, but that was an exception (No AC power available) we usually find a good spot. We try not to travel with him if we expect to be in high heat areas he stays home with "Auntie" ...LOL

Our dog is going on 12 and has travelled all over 3 countries and he is going to be the last one until we spend less time travelling.... also to many restrictions.

We also do a lot with helping out street animal in Mexico... which is a great way for people to get pet time without it being full time!!

We leave both dogs in our AS for up to four hours, never longer. We run both AC set at 73 degrees, and run the one fantastic fan. We also have a Samsung camera set up connected to a hotspot on our Droid Tablet which connects to cell. Data is used only when I view the camera for a few seconds each hour. I also have it set to notify me when there is movement in the trailer, so if the dogs start playing or something I know it. There is also a sound setting so I can turn the camera on and I can hear if the ACs are running or not.

Seems to work so far, but always looking for alternatives.

As mentioned above in my earlier post, I have used Temperature Alert http://www.temperaturealert.com/land...FZcdgQodAc4MJg. It's a great company, and you can pause/unpause the service (so you are paying only for the months you actually use it).

Violet - you mentioned you have a Nest thermostat in your Airstream. I was under the impression that the wiring and voltage of Airstreams are not suited for Nest installations. I would love to know how you installed it, as we are big Nest fans in our home. Thanks in advance, Joe

Joe, I have the battery run version not the hard-wired version. It connects to your wifi network and will send alerts to your app. It's super simple to setup. Again, obviously not a bullet proof setup for a number of reasons but it's a step in the right direction.

I'm a new Dog Mother and I love my little critter. I thought I had my plan for when I step away for my RV covered and am now re-thinking that. For all that posted to this question - THANK YOU.
