Travel with pet?

No - at least not inside the coach! When we had our one and only pet, we had a fifth wheel and a travel kennel and our dog (who was an outside pet) traveled with us. He was only inside when the weather was inclement. My wifeís sense of smell is so sensitive (and pets DO smell whether we want to admit it) so when we lost him to cancer we donít do travel with pets. Not saying never - just not at this time of life! The type of volunteer work we do would make it difficult to proper,y care for pet.

We travel with two poodles, the main reason we bought motorhome was when we boarded our dogs one ended up in the Vet the whole time we were gone. Now they travel each and everytime.

We travel with our two littermate Maine Coon cats, Felix (black tuxedo) and Oscar (scruffy orange). Have this nice collapsible 3 level "condo" we use so they can get fresh air.

never walk alone

If my dog doesn't like you we probably won't either. Wouldn't think about leaving my buddy home. And as far as the campground's that are breed snobs I don't have one of those dogs but I will find somewhere else to stay where every one is welcomed

One of the reasons we got our TT. One dog, one cat. They were raised together from when they were a kitten/puppy. They travel in the truck with us, then hang out in the trailer with us & stay there when we are out visiting / sightseeing (occasionally our dog will go visiting with us). They love it, and we love having our fur babies with us. Much less hassle than trying to get pet-friendly motels.

Traveling with pets

We have a 33í TT and in 2016 we spent the winter in Arizona and California with our three dogs. Two are small Papillons and the third is a 185 lb. St Bernard. It wasnít really a problem other than Zeus, who is laid back and very friendly at home. All three travel very well in our F 250, Zeus lying down behind the driver's seat with the rear seat up, Jake lying on the small seat with a safety harness and Midge on the console with a safety harness. Everything is fine until we get to an RV Park where Zeus takes possession of the entire park. Itís his and any other dog is trespassing. He does a 180 personality wise and becomes aggressive toward other dogs. The other two are fine, but an aggressive 185 lb. dog is not something you want to deal with. This last winter he stayed with our daughter, who he loves, and the two little ones, my wife and I went to Florida. It was a much nicer trip. Like most of you our dogs are family and we went the RV route so we could take them with us when we traveled. Iím afraid Zeus has made his first and last winter trip. As an aside I will point out that Zeus is deathly afraid of our 5 lb female Papillon. She has him firmly under control and will actually take his food from him if we donít intervene.

We travel with 4 dogs. Originally bought the RV so we could travel with our then 2 dogs. Several years later, Rv got bigger and so did the pack. They are all tiny dogs and weigh about 45 pounds as all four. They have been trained to have really good manners but also really enjoy camping, other dogs, other people, and their tons of walks and hikes.

This is what happens if we don't make the bed as soon as we vacate it!!!! Seven of the nine......the big silver in the forefront is brother to the one by the pillows, our Maine Coons! The rest are rescues....caught in fields, under a dumpster, and our latest is the black kitty-17 years old, his human died and he was dumped at the shelter by the survivors.

We travel with our 2 cairn terriers and now have a kitten that we literally rescued from a stalking gator. She has been on one camping trip with us and will be with us on all future trips!

God Bless! We rescued 1 13 yr old who was so mean that no one wanted him. Lived to be 23 and eventually became a lap cat. Right now we only travel with our oldest (14) and our GSD but who knows? We have seven others. . . . .

He sat on my lap for a while, but spent most of the driving time sitting between us or on the bed. What a trooper, he loved looking out the side windows. . . so you can teach an old cat new tricks!
You are my hero for taking on so many rescues.
We have 4 rescues and 3 feral.
Take two with us.
Only have a 22 foot B+/C-.
The other two would not like the ride so much.
Need cat sitter for the outside feral no matter what we do.
The two that do go with us seem to love it.

First started traveling with a cat when we had one with diabetes requiring insulin shots.
After he passed we were used to camping with cats so always have one or two go with us.

Another Idiotic CA law

Learned last Feb about another CA liberalist constraint. It is now illegal in CA to leave your pet in your RV.

It has previously been illegal to leave your pet in your vehicle.

I hope the framers of the laws offer free pet boarding.

Isnít it nice to be taken care of by the State?

I already have plans to do some interior decorating on our RV as soon as we get one too. So as far as resale value is concerned, should we ever need or want to sell, I guess the value will be in the eye of the beholder.
Our dog or dogs (sometimes 2) always have been in our RVs. Iíve sold about a dozen RVs over the nearly 50 years of RVs and having had a pet in them never came up. Of course I clean them of hair before offering for sale.

One of our rescues was from someone the died.
Family took to the pound and she was on the verge of being put down when she rescued us.
One of our other rescues came from South Carolina to Michigan.
Family gave up because cat didn't get along with new dogs.
They had the cat foe eight years!
If I didn't get along with one of the cats my wife would get rid of me.
