We bring along our 4 year old Golden/Basset mix, Ella. She weighs 70 lbs and is fit as a fiddle. She loves to be a lap dog but at that weight she doesn't get to stay long.

We have a jack Russel named BREE.wonderful little dog. Have trouble trusting her in the camper when we are gone, She does good at home ,but in the camper she chewed up curtain once ,and since then we keep her in dog carrier . I hate doing that It seems kind of cruel being she has 480 acres to call her yard at home. Does anyone have any comments on how long is humane to keep in carrier.

Post Crate training

Charlie,

Crating dogs for short periods of time is fairly common now, but I don't know that I've ever heard of a "specific" time limit - for example: "2 hrs max, 3 hrs max", etc.

I'd suggest contacting your vet's office - they may be able to give you some guidelines, OR they may be able to recommend another client/dog owner (or local dog groomer or reputable breeder) who is familiar with crate training.

In the meantime, check your private msg's - I sent some video clips & websites that may be helpful & answer some of your questions.

Terri, the Chevy co-pilot

We're full timing and have 4 cats living with us or maybe it would be more correct to say we have 4 cats that allow us to live with them.

After many years, and six German Shepherds (several were rescues), we decided to go rescue a LITTLE dog after our last most beloved German Sheherd passed away at 15 1/2. We hit all the shelters within 60 miles or so, and finally found just the right little dog. At least he is little compared to German Shepherds.

We now travel with a lovely red tricolor Australian Shepherd. At just under 60 pounds, he is a little darling, and travels very well.
