What can I do with this puppy! 
Me my wife and the kids are finally going on a camping trip to Minnesota! I have been waiting for the kids to be old enough for the trip but my wife recently decided to buy yorkie and is having second thoughts about the trip. What can I do to show her that camping with the puppy is going to be okay?

in desperate need of help!

Dear Camper,

Don't worry - your biggest challenge is out of the way now that the kids are of age. In terms of the new puppy, I've got you covered. There are plenty of products out there that will make your wife feel safe taking the dog on the trip. For one, there are dog "carseats" that will definitley keep the dog safe on the way to the campsite. There are also doggy beds, tents, lounge chairs etc. Be sure to makesure the puppy is leashed though. With all of that open space it is very easy for them to get wander off. To give you an idea you can go to this website http://www.summitcampinggear.com/coleman-pets.html. They have everything you can think of! Im sure you didnt think that it would be that easy did you!?


The Camper is in...

Tell her not to worry about the puppy. We take out dog with us everywhere camping. She loves it! We leave her in the camper while we go to whatever places she isn't allowed and no problem. We have even taken our DD's when she has camped with us and they do fine. We leave the tv on for noise and the heat or ac for comfort, as well as food and water. I know a lot of people that travel with their furbabies, as I call them, and no issues. Good luck!

There's an article that was written a while back here on how to camp with dogs. Managed to find it. Here is the link: http://www.campingroadtrip.com/tips-and-articles/tips-on-camping-with-dogs

Hope it helps.

Re: What can I do with this puppy! 
Since it's still a puppy, it would be a lot easier to train to get used to going on trips with you while camping. Start by letting the puppy get used to sleeping in your RV and then take it on short trips around in your RV. Make sure that you also train it to be comfortable being on a leash since you'll need to keep it on a leash while you're in the campground.
