Dachshunds First Camping Trip

MD3 Take over my chair
This weekend we took the dogs for their first camping trip. I will clarify the term "camping" here. We have a 20ft camper with all the amenities one really needs, including bed without pine cones or rocks, bathroom facilities, kitchen, stereo and AC. So its not really roughing it. We do sit and cook by the fire and enjoy being somewhere nice away from home. I am happy to report that the dogs really took to it. They behaved better than I had hoped, barking was controlled to a minimum. I was kinda worried about that, but we used what I call the "jingle bag", a little bean bag thing that has chain in it that we jingle whenever they bark, and they stop. Its a lifesaver. We hope to get the dogs to where we don't have to jingle. It was a great first trip, great weather, couple long dog(haha) walks a day, visit the swimming hole, hangin by the fire. I think the dogs will be lookin forward to our next trip too.
Lookin for critters
