Organize Your Travel Route
No matter how well-trained, dogs need to stretch their legs. It isn’t healthy to keep them cooped up for too long, so before you head out on your long trip, pick out a few places to stop and recuperate. The best spots are rest stops with enclosed/gated fields and dog-friendly RV parks nearby. You’ll appreciate the extra lax time, and so will the rest of the pack!
Document Illness and Vaccines
It’s important to let your RV Resort know the medical condition of your pups. It’s common courtesy. The RV Park will want to verify the number of new furry guests, any problems the pups have and their breed (in case they get lost!)
Having this information ready will help you avoid a lot of potential headaches, as some resorts won’t accept undocumented animals for a variety of fair reasons.
Train and Discipline the Pack
One of the most vital tips to heed when travelling throughout RV parks and resorts in the U.S is to train your pups. It’s straight-forward. If your dogs are barking or growling at anyone who walks by your RV site, you will get complaints. Not everyone wants to deal with your dogs, so make sure you take care of it! Getting a call from the resort office about your dog’s behavior is embarrassing and scary. Where will you go if they’re too much for your neighbors? Don’t worry about that, instead, take the initiative and train those pups!
Don’t forget that as a guest of any well-maintained RV resort, it’s also your responsibility to pick up after the dogs, keep them off other guests’ sites and maintain their overall cleanliness.
If you’re staying with us at any Wilder RV Resorts, you won’t have too much about getting a couple dogs in the park. However, at other RV parks, beaches and national parks around the country, the rules vary. For peace of mind, call the resorts you’ll be staying at and give them a heads up about how many dogs you have and their sizes. Having a hard time finding dog-friendly RV resorts and RV parks in your area? Call up any of the Wilder resorts in Florida and Texas. We’re always excited for the additional pack member!
