Travel Tips on RVing with Pets


By Julee Meltzer

As full-time RVers, pet owners, and professional writers, we’ve often been asked what it’s like to actually live and work in an RV with pets. After all, we’re not exactly the average RVing family. For the last three years, we’ve been living in a 34 ft. motorhome with two large German Shepherd dogs and three cats. This would be a lot of animals in a regular house, but in an RV it is sometimes ridiculous. Yet here we are and here’s what we’ve learned so far.

How Pets See RVing.

From what we’ve observed, our dogs absolutely love the camping and RVing lifestyle. Compared to living in a fenced-in yard, they have a life filled with exciting new places, interesting smells, new people, other dogs, and an endless assortment of fascinating wildlife. Our cats seem to really enjoy RVing as well. Instead of nearly freezing to death in the North every winter, they get to enjoy warm sunny days all year long as a result of heading south every autumn.

We’ve concluded that most pets, if given the choice, would rather be close to their family at all times. Fortunately, in an RV, you’re never far away.

Rules Are Good But Flexibility Is Better.

With so many creatures in such a small space, you might think that strict rules would be the key to survival. Ironically, flexibility is a better model. For example, when we first started living in the RV, we had a rule that read: “No dogs on the sofa”. However, after stumbling over the dogs on the floor for six months, we covered the sofa with a sheet and abandoned our rule. Today, our dogs are more comfortable and we have a lot more floor space. When we want to use the sofa, they move on to the floor and we simply remove the sheet. It isn’t elegant, but it works. Of course, our sofa which is 3 years old does now look like it is 20 years old, but we don’t mind because we love our doggies.

We have learned that the secret to living in close quarters with other creatures isn’t about rules. Instead, it’s about tolerance, patience, and endless flexibility.

Make Sure You Design An Exit Strategy.

We enjoy our pets, but there are times when we need to make them disappear. For example, we have some friends that are a little uneasy about dogs. When they come over to visit, we put the dogs in the bedroom and lock the door. Likewise, when we have to take our motorhome to the shop for repairs, we put the dogs in the car. If it’s hot, we drive around with the air conditioner on. During service, we keep the cats locked in the RV’s bedroom.

Make sure you tape a note to the bedroom door to let the technicians know that there are cats inside the bedroom.

Keeping Them Safe and Healthy.

If you have a medical emergency on the road, you can’t simply pick up the phone and call your family vet. So whenever we stay in a new area, we locate a phonebook and write down the telephone number and address of the nearest emergency animal hospi...
