I put a little cow bell on the dogs. I like backpacks for them, they can carry some stuff themselves

We are getting ready for our longest trip with the dogs so far. Five days, two 70+ lb dogs and two teenage girls I'm still trying to figure out who thought this would be a good idea
We were worried about Nita barking at people, but she has been very good about not being too protective of our site.

|wolfy dog||OK, great responses. I am looking forward to it now. It is a camp ground by a lake so plenty of swimming and fetching to make him tired. He sleeps in a crate at night at home so camping and having him close by will be great. And I can hide behind him when a bear comes....|

|Nigel||Will you be camping in the cascades? Thought you were in the NW? If so, large slugs were a nuisance, but beyond that the wildlife was of no issue. We camp remote fairly often, Dogs love it and pretty much sack out right along with us at the end of the day, no problem. Hope you enjoy it.|

Just returned from Ollie's first major trip
We just returned from our first "glamping trip" with Ollie (1 yr. old). A solid week in a small trailer on the beach. I was very, very worried he would bark at all the new noises and get us kicked out of the campground or go stir crazy and chew the trailer. But it didn't happen! In part he was just so tired at the end of every day after swimming, hiking, and fetch that he slept like a log and was too tired to care about barking or chewing. He usually sleeps on our bed at home so we are used to that, but it was a very tight fit on a full mattress for 2 adults and a 90 lbs dog. I was very happy to return to the king bed which better accommodates all of us. Also while Ollie was very aware of other campers and dogs during the day, he seemed to do ok once he got a sense for his bearings on who belonged where. We brought a tie up for him as well, but really only used it when we were doing smores or other stuff in our campsite so he wouldn't wonder over to bug anyone.
On a side note, we had a sad happening with his chuckit ball at the beach. The rubber whistler ball sank like a stone in the water before he could get to it and disappeared to the bottom of the ocean. Ollie was one distressed shepherd who could not find his ball and wouldn't leave the water or beach without it. It look a trip into town to purchase a new "floating" ball and make everything ok. Won't go on a trip again without back-up balls for fetch.
