Looking closely at the dog he still seems to be a pup. They love to chew!

Before we were certain we would give neighbors our cell number and ask them to call if they started barking. Also would tape a note to front of unit with same info. No one wants to hear a barking dog on their camping trip. It's not rocket science, just common sense.
Edit, after looking at those pics closer the interior panels look like they have blood on them. That owner needs to put their dog in a kennel or with a dog sitter when they travel for the safety of the dog and the camper.
I hate to try to armchair quarterback on a deal like this but I have to agree with Flybouy. From everything I can see in the pictures it is a case of neglect and/or training. If these pics were in the immediate aftermath (and they appear they were), the lack of water or food could be a good indicator of what is going on but the lack of specifics on the situation make it hard to make that assessment.

I'm also of the opinion that if your dog is not trained to "chill" while you are gone and barks or becomes destructive it should be placed in a kennel. When we are on the road and make lengthy stays we many times book a week in some other area to go see the sites. We always take puppy to a kennel (after doing research and making a preliminary visit with puppy to make sure she likes it) and let her stay. It is a break for her that she seems to enjoy and frees us up to stay where we want.

In this pictured situation I feel sorry for the dog and the owners; for the dog because it was put in that position and felt it had to do what it did (apparently painfully as it does look like there may be blood on that door) and for the owner for the damage because he/she did not take the time to train the dog or take care of it properly.

I am with flybouy and sourdough. I had a pup that I could not trust to be alone. When we camped she went into her kennel with the air or fan on and radio up when we would leave the site. She liked her kennel and just slept while we were gone. My first pup and current pup are great. No kennel but I do leave the radio on and either the fan or a/c and water in the dish (pups eat on a schedule). People tell me they did not know we had a dog in there. We usually will take our dog with us if we can. That poor pup really did a number on the door and itself. How long was that dog left alone? I feel bad for the pup - they should know that it has separation anxiety and not leave it alone or take the appropriate precautions.

Wow! At first I thought that was a photoshop job and I thought it was funny. Seeing those pics, it's not so funny anymore.
Hmmm, if I had a dog like that ...

My old Wildcat Trailer I traded in this summer!

Side point, yes, crate training is the best possible gift you can give your dog. They are safe and protected from themselves. They bed down and relax.

You have to love the ad tracking sometimes. In the message above the one Iím posting now there was an ad for Chewy.com with a bunch of hard rubber chew toys for dogs You will probably get a different ad, but that was so funny.

I got the chewy.com ad too. Kinda funny, but probably not a coincidence.

And all this was from a puppy. Just think what an average sized bear could do if he wanted inside one of these RVs.
