Pet strollers have become a commodity amongst dog and cat owners. And it’s no wonder! They’re super fun for the dog or cat as well as their pet parents pushing them. But, it may come as a surprise that a pet stroller isn’t just for lazy cats and or who are disabled. There’s a whole bunch of reasons why these rolling pet buggies are actually a good thing!
Many dog owners feel that when they’re hiking or camping, their dog should enjoy their freedom to roam, explore and work off their rambunctiousness. However, when you properly leash your dog outdoors, you are essentially helping to mitigate dangerous situations. But also, effective leashing helps prevent legal consequences should your pet act inappropriately in the backcountry, on the trail, at a campground and even at home.
A million thoughts must go through your head when leaving your dog alone in your RV. How is your pup dealing with his separation anxiety during your absence? Does your dog get scared easily? Will he get you kicked out of the campground when you get back due to his constant barking? Is he ripping down the walls in your camper? Will you actually have an RV left when you return? All these questions must be going through your mind while you’re away from your camper.
With the exception of service dogs, many campgrounds are banning dogs all together. But why are even responsible dog owners who have well-behaved dogs being told, ‘your dog is not welcome here’. Is it because of liability, legal issues or is it something else?
Camping with restricted dog breeds could end up costing you a chance at getting a campsite at any given campground and even certain municipalities. While some dog owners think this is a discriminatory practice of disallowing known aggressive breeds of dogs, it really is an issue that campgrounds have no control over.
Does your dog love to go camping? Or, does you cat beg you to take her RVing in your camper? If so, this is definitely a must read for pet owners who are wanting to go camping with dogs and cats. Whether you’re camping at a state park, private campground or even wild camping, it’s important to follow a few pet etiquette rules to help keep your pet and you safe. But to also allow other campers the same reciprocity of camping enjoyment.
The question is how do you keep your pets cool and comfortable in your RV when it’s the hot outside? An RV or camper can get hot really fast in the summer. So, it’s important to take certain safety precautions when leaving your pet alone in your motorhome or towable RV when you leave your RV to go exploring.
