    Our dogs go on 20ft leashes at our campsite...We always pick sites where people dont cut through....They wear a harness
    And 3ft leashes on walks.
    For fleas and ticks we started this yr with pills that last 3 months.
    We used to use the stuff that you squirted on their back up by their neck and rubbed it into their fur.

I got a leash that has a handle that can be unbuckled and buckled around things. So I can attach him to stuff no matter where we go from kayak to camping chair. I prefer that as he likes to be close to me at all times and will whine if I go too far. He usually is off leash except for campgrounds and around a lot of people.

    I just purchased 2 36-inch tall wire exercise play pens to give mine off leash space. Plus have a 24 inch to block them going under the RV.

    With Ben, we bring a soft sided crate and use it as "his place" when riding in the car. When my wife is fishing and I'm not able to be there with her to mind the dog, he's in the soft crate beside her while she's fishing. In camp, we keep him on a 20' leash (shortened if it's a small campsite) tied either to a tree or a screw in hook. In the camper, we keep his bed under the dinette. He seems to like it there and if he's feeling tired in the evening, he'll ask us to let him in the camper even if we're still outside (he does this by walking up to the camper and looking at the door and then back at us :) ). If I'm on the sofa, he does try to climb up and seems put out when we tell him "no" (he's allowed to at home, but the home sofa is leather...not vinyl :) ... more resistant to his nails.)

    I hiked the Oberg Mt. Loop for the first time last fall (Oct. 2020). Beautiful, Fun, and easy.

    I have to take my 2 little dogs when we go camping. No one to leave them with. Mine are small: 1 Tiny toy poodle (6#) and a miniature dachshund V(12#). Both them and the grandson sleep with me in the bed. My son has a dog he brings -- A Texas Heeler about 40#. Very well trained and mindful. My son's GF brought her Pit along last camping trip, about 90# of bumbling puppyness. UGH!! Not enough room with the Pit. 4 dogs is too many!!
