We've found that as long as they have their own camp chairs, proper eclipse sunglasses, and sleep in the teardrop while we sleep on the ground under the truck, they're just fine.

My dogs rule the house; I'm sure that if/when I bring one or more along camping with me, it'll be the same.

My dog is a home body so that seals it for us. Changing his routine stresses him too much. Can dogs be agoraphobic?

A recent trip to camp with some old friends, cool off in the lake, and do a shakedown cruise.

My dog can take it or leave it. I don't have a reliable dog sitter, so he goes where I go. Losing my dog to thieves or heat is not going to happen, so I don't travel in July and August.

I once read about a cop who left the car running but it shut off, and his police dog died. Even when I'm with him, it's a problem keeping him cool. Might be ok at the coast. More places should allow dogs. Whole vans full of dogs get stolen. I can't take the chance. I go through drive-through places to eat.

It seems like camping with a dog is more difficult than I thought. We even miss our cat when we camp. A few thoughts.
A shower really is not a requirement if weekend camping. That solves the problem of shower separation. Tony showed an interesting setup with a garden sprayer. I bought a 2 gallon sprayer from Harbor Freight for only $10 and set up a wash station when we primitive camped in very hot weather. It worked great!
Portapotty and an enclosure keeps the dog with you during those breaks.
Good planning for self prepared meals so you can keep your dog with you. Drive through suggestion previously mentioned is a good idea.

We just went on a trip of 2800 miles and every state park allowed dogs. There were plenty of campers with dogs, even some in tents. I have seen a few single women and men camping with large dogs. They tied them up outside the bath house but thankfully the dogs were friendly and just waited. Most dog campers had full sized RVs and just left the dog inside.
