She's concerned about leaving him too long in the MH, hair, having him on a leash all the time. He pretty much roams the yard free with an invisible fence at home.

I travel with these for my pups, takes a whole lot of headaches out of camping with the pups. I like these because I don't have to step over the fences, they have gates built in. I have four of them and they work fantastic.

But can't leave him outside alone, not allowed in most campgrounds. But this helps a bit with the free roaming.

Also attached is a pdf of a decal I had made with the cell phone number for an emergency contact when I'm away from the coach. That helps calm your nerves too. Neighbors at the CG will help watch out too if they are there.....

Hope this helps!

As far as hair goes, that's one thing that is the down side, but a few minutes a day with a good vac will keep up with that, totally worth it to have Sam with you.....

I have one of these and love it:

Wouldn't leave home without our four legged child. That's one of the top reasons for owning our MH.

I like your idea of the sticker. Our kids are cage trained so at night they go in the cage and anytime we are way during the day. We only leave ours alone for 7.5 hours. Sometimes a little longer if I'm running late from work but for the most part try not to get past 8 hours at any given time. As for the OP, your pets are your kids. Love them and take them with you. I guarantee you'll feel better not worrying about what's going on back home and can enjoy your trip even more.

We have two Yellow Labs (see sig) and wherever we go, they go. Our traveling style is a little different to a lot of folk as we don't tow a second vehicle. It's rare for us to spend more than 2 nights at a CG, even if the next one is only 50 miles away, so we don't have to leave them in the MH for long periods. A couple of hours while we visit a museum or something, is about the max, and if they get a walk just before we leave them, they're usually still asleep when we get back.

My 110 pound half-lab, half-bloodhound Jack goes with us. At home he is an outside dog and has 5 acres to run around on with an Invisible Fence. We recently finished an 8-day trip. He had no problem with the leash and we walked him several times a day. The longest he has been in the coach by himself was 6 hours and he had no problem with that. I put a dog throw at the foot of our bed and that is his space to go sleep. I also have a throw over the sofa and he likes to get up there and watch out the window or doze. Dog hair is a problem - he sheds something awful but I vacuum every day. He is so worth it! Jack loves going with us and I can't turn away those big brown eyes.

They know we're going before we do? We have a golden and two shihtsues. 8 hours is about enough to be left alone. The MH has a central vac and it gets used every other day. I think we would miss them as much as they would miss us if we left without them. Family is family you know?

We always take our Lab. The only concern we have is daily exercise and a place he can run off lead, free for a time. I've always been able to find a area to do this--no matter where we are. We have Sof-Krated him since he was 7 weeks so leaving him in MH isn't a problem.

Our Siberian Husky (110 lb)always comes along. He hates being left alone but we have left him for 4-5 hours in the past.
On one occasion, he had an 'accident'. Other times, no problems.
He likes going away because he gets walked 3 or 4 times a day. Usually once a day at home.
He usually wants out at 5 or 6am. We hear a jingle from his tags as he shakes, then he puts his head on the bed and blows at me. He rarely barks. Sometimes, he goes out, pees and comes back in and sometimes, just lays down and refuses to come back in.
Don't talk to me about Shedding

Winnie our black lab took her first trip with us this summer 2 months and 8000 mi on the road. All over the place. She adapted quickly to the space (or lack of it) and was a really good traveler. Stopped a little more often when traveling until we figured out her signs for needing to stop and go. We also have her crate trained and have a very nice quick collapsing crate for large dogs from Midwest products. Never had an accident in the coach, never had a problem in any campground. We would never leave her in a kennel now so we can travel in the motorhome. Good luck with your decision. Hopefully your best friend ever will go with you.
