RVing with Dogs – The Bottom Line


By Julee Meltzer

Recently, someone asked us how much it actually costs to RV with dogs. My initial response was that it doesn’t cost any more to RV with a dog than it does to live with one at home. After all, no matter where you are, your dog still needs food, medical care, toys, and so on. But after thinking about the issue a little further, I realized that RVing with dogs did, in fact, have a number of hidden costs that aren’t all that noticeable until you actually hit the road. So before you decide to take your pooch on a camping adventure, consider some of the hidden costs described here.

Extra Leashes


For some unknown reason – we always end up buying extra leashes when were on the road. Okay…Okay. It’s not exactly an unknown reason. Our male has a horrible habit of biting his leash in half whenever we’re at a rest stop. The last time it happened, we had pulled into a busy rest stop on a major Interstate. I hooked up his leash and opened the door. As we were carefully navigating around the giant tractor-trailers that packed the area, he grabbed the leash with his back teeth and in one quick bite, freed himself and stood there looking at me. New Leash: $40. Near Heart Attack: Life Changing.

Visit to the Vet


Before you take your dog with you, schedule a trip to the vet. The vet will give them a check up, trim their nails, clean their ears, and make sure they have all their shots. In particular, make sure they’re up-to-date on their rabies vaccinations. One reason is that many campsites require written proof that your dog is vaccinated. Consequently, ask your vet for a copy of your dog’s medical records and make sure it shows that they’re up-to-date on their rabies shots. Vet Visit: $150. Peace of Mind: Inestimable.

Heartworm Medication


Since heartworm is transmitted by mosquitoes, you normally only have to give your dog heartworm medication (i.e., Heartguard™) during the summer months. However, if you take your “snowdog” to warmer places in the winter, you’ll have to give them the medication year round. If you have any doubt about heartworm disease, ask your vet to show you the worm infested dog heart they keep in a jar. The first time I saw one, I bought enough heartworm medication for 12 months. Heartworm Medication: $40/month. Image of Jar: Unforgettable.

Flea and Tick Medication


If you plan on staying in a warm place this winter, purchase plenty of flea and tick medication (Frontline™). Flea and tick medication isn’t cheap but it beats the cost of treating your dog for Lyme disease. Plus, the first time you see a swollen tick embedded into your dog’s head, you’ll be glad that you treated them with the medication because in less than 24 hours – the tick will fall off and die. Flea and Tick Medication: $35/month. Tick-Free Dog: Enough Said.
