RVing with Dogs: A Simple Guide

“Man’s best friend.” There’s no doubt that dogs do a lot to
live up to this lofty title, providing companionship, emotional support, and
entertainment on your long road trips. But RVing with dogs isn’t all fun,
either. They can be messy, difficult to care for, and make your road trip a lot
more complicated. But they’re worth it. That’s why we’ve put together a few of
the best tips for RVing with your pets while minimizing the fuss.

Space in the RV

in the RV. You might even use the RV for several weeks in advance before the
road trip to get your dog acclimated to the environment. They should associate
the RV with comfort and relaxation.

place to sleep and rest while in your RV. Once they’re used to the idea, taking

small dogs will benefit from a lot of open air and space, so make sure to plan
visits to dog-friendly parks and rest stops while you’re RVing. Regular stops
are good for your circulation and for your pet’s well-being.

when you can, even if there aren’t wide-open parks handy. Your dog needs to be
walked when it’s in the house; when RVing with dogs, the need will be even

Keep Your RV Clean
with Safe Cleaning Products

If you use toxic cleaning products around your RV, then you have
to worry about your pet getting into these products. The good news is that
there are plenty of effective RV cleaning products with safer formulas that are
pet friendly.

  • Keep a gallon of Suds handy for
    general cleaning around the RV. It has a pleasant fragrance and is
    environmentally-friendly to boot.
  • You’ll also want a bottle of VinyLIFE
    for the interior of your RV—and with a pet in tow, you’re going to need it.

Dogs can enjoy an RV road trip every bit as much as you. But
unless you take a few steps to make sure they’re properly cared for, they can
also make your RV tougher to deal with. Plan ahead, use the right RV cleaning products, and make
sure your dog stays happy. After all, when they’re happy—you’re happy.
