Dogs are undeniably “man’s best friend”. They selflessly guard you, love you and expect nothing in return but just to be with you wherever you are. So if you bring them along your travel and to an awesome adventure that surely mean a lot to them. But before you do so, there are still some points that you have to consider before boarding them.
FOOD AND WATER
The basics for life. Make sure you have your dog on a brand of food that is available in many locations. Switching a dog from brand to brand can many times cause digestive problems, not something you want on a road trip!
PAPERS AND VET INFO
Always travel with your veterinary records. We include these in the same place we store our passports. Make sure your dog has all the vaccines and shots needed for your journey.
EXERCISE
Dogs like to explore and move. Making sure that they do have regular activity will excite them.
LEAVING THE DOGS IN THE RIG
Many times the dogs will have to stay behind in the rig. Keeping them inside kennels makes them feel secure, when leaving the less fuss the better soon they will know the drill and if properly exercised will likely curl up and sleep till you return.
CAMPGROUND ETIQUETTE
This is super important! Everyone must do there absolute best to have a quiet, well-behaved dog. Your dog should not be barking constantly when your gone. See to it that you have poop bags or a scoop and use them. Keep an eye where they urinate and never allow them to do it near campers, gardens and lawns.
CLEANING THE RIG
This is where the kennel training comes in handy. The more time they spend in the kennel the less time they spend lying around elsewhere.

  1. How to get dachshunds up and down steps. Ugh. I bought a soffit ramp but they won’t get on it. Think it’s too steep. May need something more at the bottom. Any ideas? Thanks.
