Hi, I'm Kevin and just purchased my first TT.
I have a 50lbs dog that will be coming with us on our weekend warrior trips. My question is that lets say the wife and kids want to go to the pool. Is it against any rules or looked down upon to put the dog (Murphy) in a cage outside under the awning with a supply of water? He loves being outside and I don't see a very good reason why this wouldn't be allowed or looked down upon, but I don't know. The cage is too big to leave in the TT. Other options of course are a staked cable dog leash. My issue with them is that before my fence was put up in my house we used that and he constantly got tangled up and stuck on things. Of course if it was extremely hot or cold I wouldn't do this. He's still under a year old and has alot of puppy left in him so I don't want to come home to a brand new chewed up TT.

Most every campground has rules you cannot leave a dog outside unattended. And no one wants to hear excessive barking.

Put in the camper or leave at home at the dog kennel.

We have someone watch our dogs at home, if we know a camping trip will have times the dogs cannot be with us. As a dog owner I always report campers that leave their dog behind in the camper for the day.

Hmmm... maybe a little MYOB is in order here. As a multi pet traveler, two labs and a Maine Coon, we have no issues leaving them alone in the coach. We know they don’t bark, well not sure about the cat, and they are safe. Having a mosey-body snooping around them would certainly make them, and me, uncomfortable.

Dear Dave,

If they don't bark I'll never know you left them behind. If your informed by the campground not to leave the dogs behind a smart dog owner would know they must be barking.

Despite the rules, I don't think I've been to a camp ground yet where I have not seen unattended dogs left chained or crated at campsites. Including myself. As a solo traveler, my dog is unattended when I leave to use the public shower, that's how it is and I'm not leaving my dog home at a kennel so I can take a shower without annoying some busy-body.

MYOB folks, get over yourselves and enjoy your camping time instead of worrying about ruining someone elses. Dog annoys you? Your idling diesel annoys me no way you need 30+ minutes to warm up or cool down, get that engine serviced if it takes that long. Maybe it's screaming kids, alcohol fueled all-night "good times" around the fire at maximum volume, or or or...
