Hi, Everyone, this is my first post, but, having read the lengthy discussions and debates about dogs and rv camping, I want to ask you the following:
Knowing that many campers do not wish to hear barking dogs in other campsites, and recognizing that most campgrounds forbid campers from leaving their dog unattended, is there ever an occasion when you dog owners want to go out for dinner at a local restaurant and you have found a way to leave your dog with others while away? We want to bring our dog on our next trip and we intend to follow all the rules with him. It just might be nice every week or so to take part of an evening at a restaurant in a local town. Any advice?

Most dogs can be trained to wait quietly for you in your rig. We always took our late and still deeply missed Chocolate Lab, Lizzy, with us and would leave her with the blinds down and either the radio or TV on for 'company'. It was just a matter of leaving her and rewarding her for being quiet, starting with a few minutes and lengthening the time bit by bit. I will admit, though, that Lizzy was a true 'Wonder Dog' and very easy to train. We never received a single complaint about her barking while we were gone, and sometimes we'd be gone for hours. I think it helped that she was alone in the house while we were at work & the kids were at school, so she had lots of 'practice'.

Now, on the other hand, we're trying to train our 8 mo old Dachshund, Crash, to wait quietly for us. It's not going quite so easily, but he's finally starting to 'get it'!!

If you are at a place that forbids leaving animals unattended, even inside your rig, then your only option would be a 'doggy daycare' if there is one near where you're staying or finding a restaurant with patio eating that permits pets on the patio (pretty hard to find in the US).
