I travel solo mostly - my wife prefers to fly down to AZ for 5 weeks and then fly back to the Canadian winters. I've always traveled with at least one Standard Long-Haired Dachshund (we used to breed and show them). My current travel companion is just 2 years old.

Quick potty breaks, I just leave the truck running and slip into the AS. For any longer breaks, I put the Dachsie in the trailer, leaving some windows opened and the Fantastic fan running.

Thumbs up Welcome Aboard!!

Our's has always been a PoochStream.....

Our first PWD 'Bo' made us get the Safari so he could relax at the Water Trials and Conformation.

"Fado" just continued the tradition.

We use the AS for comfort stops and our best friend is always in a crate while moving. Never a head out the window or in a closed TV on a warm day, leg stretch every 100mi or as needed.

Bob

She is so pretty, and I bet she has soft ears...

And can cause lots of trouble when she decides to. I know my rescue mutts are good at trouble...

I am currently in AZ for the WRTR event. There are approx 1000 women here. It's great. Many of us are now headed to the RTR event. Look it up on YouTube, Facebook or cheaprvliving.com for info. Womens Rubber Tramp Rendezvous events. You will see tons of interviews with solo women on the road, people with disabilities etc. Everyday is filled with seminars on solar, tire repairs, safety on the road,boondocking tips etc plus you will connect with women from all over...and theres quite a few Airstreamers! I'm camped with one now��LilNomad

I recently saw this at a rest stop on the New York State Thruway.

It's an air conditioned dog house that you can video monitor on your phone and it's automatically sanitized between uses. At 30 cents a minute, it might cost a few dollars for a rest stop.

I think it's an interesting idea, but you have to sign up for it in advance and they send you a card access it. Seems to me they'd be better off letting you do it with any old credit card.

I probobaly wouldn't use one, but it is interesting.

In my experience, there's usually so few souls out in the truck/trailer parking, my dog usually doesn't draw a lot of attention. But she also doesn't bark at people, and I tend to drive in the mornings and evenings. I think if you park in shade when you can and open windows, it's usually not a problem. You can also have two sets of keys and leave the AC running with the doors locked while you go in, if you're in a really hot area or direct sunlight.

Maybe get a larger trailer right up front. One with a dry bath. Then use the trailer for meals and bathroom breaks and whatever. It is usually cooler in the trailer during the day than in a parked car. We travel with a vent open in hot weather. You can run the fans when you stop. You can put the dog in the trailer, run into Subway and get a sandwich, and then eat together in the trailer in style.
