What do you think your RV dog would wish for?
This blog post identifies 24 dog approved products for RV dogs. There are products that make life easier for RV dogs and for you, and there are products that your dog will be saying,
“Hey hooman…I wuf you!” if you buy them!
I am so happy to have the opportunity to write this article for you about dog products. We have a German Shepherd and she loves exploring and adventuring with us, her name is Xena.
Ever wonder, what do I need to make my traveling companion comfortable, and safe in their home on wheels? Or, are there are any precautions I should take when it comes to traveling to unfamiliar destinations?
Here’s a comprehensive list of ALL the products we have purchased for Xena as a pup, and some we continue to use to make her more comfortable and safe on the road.
What is Essential for RV Dogs?
Our take is anything that provides safety and maximizes health, and comfort for your furry family member.
Although our pets get acclimated to traveling in a short period of time, we always want the best products for them to make their lives easier, and ours too.
To help you we’ve provided a dog approved list by Xena. It will save some time scouring the internet and make sure you don’t forget anything.
