First off, the title should read "Rving with dogs" the book gives no advice for people who camp with tents or a pop-up camper. (both what I consider true camping) It is written for people with RV's or hitch campers. That said, most of the advice is impracticle for anyone who camps with a tent. For example, it's advice for leaving your dog alone is to make sure the air is on and a window is open. There is no advice about dealing with a dog around a campfire or an out-door stove or how to handle other pets at the campground or wild animals.

Secondly, the the book is 310 pages, but only 70 pages of the book deal with caring for a dog while camping. The last 240 pages are a list of "pet friendly campgrounds" by state. Which seems a waste since most campgrounds allow pets. ( actually I have never been to a campground that didn't allow pets, though I am sure they exist)

Next, the chapters on first aid and safety seem limited. There are much better books for this.

Finaly, If you are an RVer who pulls into a camp site and turns on the air and puts a casserole in the oven, this book might be for you. If you are looking for advice about how to care for your dog while camping and enjoying the great outdoors, I would look elsewhere.

I have two large dogs and I camp alot. I have been turned away from a bunch of campgrounds because I have big dogs. Finally, I got sick of being turned away and I bought this book. It has a very large listing of campgrounds around the country that welcome dogs. I use it every time I head out for a week-end trip. Highly recommended!

Great book!! Camping and RVing with Dogs is a timely addition to my "must-have" collection of travel guides. Since I take my dog, Lucy, with me whenever I am RVing, I found the information and tips in this book to be invaluable. In addition, the directory of pet-friendly campgrounds finally takes the guesswork out of finding a campground. Chapter 7, "Coping with Diverse Environments" gave great information about places I might want to go, but knew nothing about.
