RVing with Dogs: Why you Should

Planning an RV trip can sometimes be a bit of a headache. For pet owners, one of the road blocks most often encountered when planning a vacation is "who will take care of the dog while we are away from home?". But you're bringing your home *with* you... so why not bring the dog along too? There are many benefits to bringing your dog on your next RV trip. Here are several that you may not have considered.

You'll have no need to invest in doggy day care, which can become expensive. Instead, invest in caring for your pet in your RV with items like a bed, a kennel if needed, staked tie outs, compact storable fencing, and other items for your dog's comfort and protection on the road. It is a one time investment instead of day-to-day, plus you'll gain the happiness of having your pet with you.

Having a dog about can keep wildlife like deer, raccoons, opossums, and squirrels from getting into your campsite to forage. Of course, if you want these creatures about, you can always put the dog inside.

Speaking of putting the dog inside, even the smallest dog makes for an effective alarm system to keep unwanted visitors from lurking about your campsite. While campsite theft is not something we like to spend a lot of energy thinking about, it does happen from time to time. A barking dog that alerts you and all of your neighbors is an effective deterrent against would be thieves.

Finally, including the dog in your trip is good for both you and your pet. Dogs are very social animals and being apart from family can be very stressful for them. Instead, bring them along for the adventure and bonding. You will enjoy having your best friend with you too.
