Portable dog fence for camping


Portable dog fence for camping

We are going camping at a park for the first time. I have a 10 month old female maltese/poodle. She has never been camping before, or even been in the car. We are going on a 1 day trip. We are in Florida, so we don't know what type of weather to expect. We are planning on buying a tent, as we have read that they are not usually allowed in campgrounds in Florida. Will we be ok without a tent? Can we just pitch a tarp?

The problem I foresee is that I do not want to buy a 10 month old dog anything! And I'm not even sure what I'm going to do with her all day, with nothing to entertain her. Do you have any ideas on what I can do?

My parents have always taken me camping as a kid. They have several older hound dogs (we call them "camp hounds") and they have a big 4x8 tarp that they use as a ground cloth. They bring a cooler and a basket of food, and their dogs have a lot of room to roam, but they always bring some toys and treats. The older hounds can be a lot of trouble at times, but they are great dogs and they love to play. If I go on a camping trip, it will probably be the same thing for me.

I'm pretty sure I'm just going to take a few things. The biggest thing is water, and I don't really want to get into a situation where we have to haul the hose and the water. I do know a lot of parks will provide water for you, so I will be checking that out before the trip. I'll probably also bring some kind of bedding, since the ground will be hard. The other thing I'll need to bring is poop bags. If I take my cat with me, I'm pretty sure she will have to use the bags, and since they are small, I'm probably going to take 2-3. She is a "fancy cat", so she likes her cat litter. I would like to keep this a 100% "camping trip", so I won't be taking any extra food or other "camping" things. I might bring a tent, since I know I could just pitch a tarp, but that's about it.

I don't know if my Maltese will handle the whole thing well, but I hope she will. I'll be taking her to the vet first before we go, and probably get a flea and tick treatment too. Since my dog has never been camping before, I'm not really sure what to expect, but I would like to make sure she is safe and comfortable.

I'll probably try to post again in a few days, once we have the date and time set.

I think I would also pack a small blanket that you could put under your dog in case they get cold or wet, although I think that would be mostly unnecessary for a tarp. I would also make sure you bring enough food for the entire trip. When we go camping, we usually take at least two days, so we plan on bringing enough food for a few days of camping. If you go a day trip, you might only need a few meals.

I like this thread. I have a 9 week old Australian shepherd and she has never been camping before. I do plan to take her along, she's pretty smart. I plan on taking my small, lightweight, water proof sleeping bag and a light sleeping mat, a smaller water proof bag with enough toys inside, and hopefully something to do with her while she naps. We're planning to be gone 2 days and I'm worried about what kind of stuff I need to take.

Thank you. This was a great idea! I think I'm going to take a bigger bag (the kind that will fit her whole body) and a sleeping pad, since she will probably nap a lot. The stuff you mentioned looks like it would be great, and the water proof bags seem like the best idea. I have not seen anything to put in the sleeping bag, so if I can find something, I will be sure to take it. I may just have her sleep in her carrier (like the kind a baby sleeps in) while we are driving.

I'm taking my Maltese-poodle with me. She's pretty well-behaved, but when we go to the park, she tends to wander off, and she's not good at staying put when she's out of the car. I've only been camping a few times, but I've never been in the car with a dog and the windows open. Do you think she'll be ok, or should I be worried? I would just drive really slowly and be careful where I park, but the park is pretty big and I'm worried I will end up in a different area where I won't be able to see her. I'll be driving to the park on Saturday, and I don't want to be in a hurry.

The thing that gets me is that the park is very big, with a lot of trees and tall grass. The park is probably about 1/2 a mile from the car, and it is mostly paved.
