Like Silvertwinkie, we travel with 2 large dogs; a Sheperd mix, "Nikita," and a Rough Collie, "Breony." Lately it's been in the 19' Bambi and it's pretty snug with both of us and the pack. Not so bad when the 31' was rolling, but that's in rehab.

We've never been to a park that allowed for unattended dogs outside. And we don't leave them. When we sit out, they love to sit with us and learned the limits of our green carpet "yard" a long time ago. We don't let them leave it or bark (even in surprise) more than once. Children are usually the problem; most have never been taught about other peoples dogs and often run up to strange dogs without hesitation.

When we do leave them in the trailer, we're never gone for more than 2-3 hours without checking on them. The A/C in the 31' never failed us, but the BRAND NEW (and already replaced once) A/C in the 19' tends to freeze if run for hours in extreme southern heat.

They usually like to go with us in the TV anyway and have even learned to patiently wait out my wife's shopping trips. I'm almost that good... sometimes.

Safe travels.

three dog night....

We travel with three dogs. Two australian shephards and one great dane/mastiff. My wife and daughter showed the austrailian shephards. We have purpose built portable pens called Ex-Pens see ( Ex Pens - Exercise Pens - Portable Dog Pens ) . We have used these at a number of state/national parks. The hosts and rangers seem to be fine with the level of containment. We have three pens which provides for a pen that is the same size as our awning. We have a piece of short garden fence that we put under the camper from front to back on the awning side to prevent under-camper escape attempts. With a cheap piece of astroturf like substance, the dogs like to sit outside and watch the world go by.
