I've been traveling and camping with my whippets & greyhound for several years. They usually travel in crates in my SUV. My FIRST order of business when getting to a campsite is to set up their pen. I purchased 10 (3'x4') panels and set them up in a number of configurations. Since my purchase, I've done away with the panel attach fasteners and now just use zip-ties exclusively.... very fast setup and breakdown. Anyway, once the pen is in place I can put the dogs inside with water and beds so I can go about my parking and setup while they relax. And that helps me to relax. I don't have to worry about them getting hot in the truck or standing up and blocking my view while parking, etc. Here's a link to my setup:

I also have a center gaucho that I typically leave in the partially extending position so that they can recline there while inside. Keeps them out from under my feet.

I have tried a number of ways to carry their food but I always resort back to 1-gallon freezer bags. I can fit them just about anywhere.

I'd really like to add a wall mounted bowl holder, something like this:

Good luck - traveling with the pups makes every trip so much better! IMO.

Great thread! Making lists of meds for our lab...

Funkill, I like your wall mount bowl idea. I have been looking at adding this model to our trailer to keep bowls out from underfoot. Hoping it will fit inside the door, in place of our magazine rack. Haven't yet measured it out though.


If I only had a dollar for every time I got distracted, I wish I had a puppy.
