Travelling with pooches...

Just wondering if anyone travels with their dog and had any tips for keeping their dog safe and comfy on the journey and also when camping. eg: where do they travel in the van, do you have a specific mat, bed or safety harness for in the van, how do you stop them going into the front, where do they sleep at night if upstairs and downstairs beds are in use. We have some thoughts, but just wondered how seasoned MP campers do it.

It really depends how big your dog is but ours is small /medium (cavachon). When we have two in the back we cannot use a tether that fits into the seatbelt so we bought one from Amazon that hooks onto one of the isofix points in the rear bench. This then attaches to the dog’s harness and he sits between the two rear passengers. It is long enough for him to get down into the floor but he never does.

At night he is small enough to sleep in the footwells at the front but since we sleep upstairs he can hop up onto a seat.

Many thanks Roy.
