After numerous trial and error tests we've found the appropriate amount of the Velcro loop placed at the proper angle on a side wall works well with a particular sweater the dog like to wear. He gets so excited when he sees the MH in the drive way AND we take out his special little sweater. As we enter the MH to take off we just stick him to the wall and all is well.

We found this worked so much better than the duct tape method others had suggested since it doesn't remove any hair from the dog when we let him lose again at the campground.

BTW - in reality he usually just rides on the couch, bed, chair or his favorite spot, my DW's lap.

Lily was terrified the first several times "her" house moved. She clawed her way onto my lap and lay there shivering. She has gotten used to the driving and no longer shivers but still wants to lay across my lap. She's only 6 pounds. I know this isn't the safest place for her to ride, but I feel it is more reward than risk for both of us.

If I always chose the safest option, life would be pretty dull.

That's nothing. I put velcroŽ on my steering wheel and Sadie's front paw pads and let her drive when I want to go to the bathroom or make a sandmisch and grab a beer.

If Lemmy isn't on my lap, he is on the couch. Took awhile to get him to not get on the dash but he only goes on there when the coach is parked.





Foxy is not impressed with the motorhome. She is 16 yo and this is her usual position and expression whether we are parked or rolling.
Usually she sleeps by the doghouse on the lower part.

That's just funny right there.

He have a retract-A-Gate that is behind the two front chairs. We installed it in the spring and has worked very well.

Here is my post from earlier this year. Link Here

Both of Mine usually Lay on the Couch or on the floor....they love to go Camping.... that is one word we try not to say at home as both will run to the back door and are ready to go CAMPING...... strange as that may sound.

With Sadie, I don't have to say a word. She knows when I'm packing to go. When I load the small travel cooler, she starts barking and dancing around. Sadie on the left. GF's `pin on the right.

Dunner, MinPins are one of my favorite breeds. I lean toward small dogs just because they are more portable but I love dogs in general.

My young Pom knows what RV means. I walk him almost everyday to the RV which is about a quarter mile away. He loves going for walks and since they always end at the RV, he associates the RV with walks. Now when I bring the RV home and he see it, he goes nuts.

My old girl is totally deaf now so we can speak freely around her.

Sadie turned out to be a good dune dog. She's off-leash most of the time and sometimes
wanders off, but always looks back to see where I am.

Dunner, that is awesome on several levels. First the off-road Segway, second that your dog gets to hitch a ride.

Foxy used to ride along in her younger days but she is retired now. She just doesn't have the balance anymore. I'm going to build a pod for the young pup to ride along. I don't trust him to stay put like Fox did.

Sadie doesn't like to go too fast and will jump off.

I heard something on the news that a guy got a ticket for animal abuse for letting his dog ride on his motorcycle. I think they called it animal cruelty. Sick people out there.

There are people that think it's animal cruelty to let our dogs roam the MH unrestrained. There seems to be no shortage of safety Nazis.
