We haven't taken him camping since he was 5ish months old, but that was only for 2 night. He has a crate and a pen we can attach to it that he can't jump out of, which will be under the shade of our tarp. I'll take him some bones and a crate cover to keep him busy and quiet if we leave him for half an hour. We have poo bags, his long lead and harness for swimming, infin8 nose collar and double ended lead for walking, tick treatment and vacs up to date.
We have a tentative booking at a boarding kennel 45 minutes from our camp spot so we can drop him off if things go pear shaped, but I actually like the idea of having him with us, he is heaps of fun, but I need to prove to my partner that he will not be a nuisance. Most of his nuisance type behavior can be avoided with a bit of planning and good management.
Main catch will be going 4wding. I can give him a nice thick foam matress for his crate on the ute but not sure it's a good idea to take him when it might be rough (We are not into extreme stuff, but it could be bumpy I guess)
WDYT?? What else should I be taking/thinking about to keep him happy and therefore keep our fellow campers happy?
ETA: He will not be in the sun on the ute - it has a roof over the tray but no sides so no chance of cooking him on the drive :-)
