Q: travel dog in a tent?

Have you traveled and slept in a tent with your dog? How about wild life coming by at night? What if the dog gets reacted? I am thinking about summer travel/camping to Canada.

Why not try to do some primative camping at a near by state park to see how your dog will react. This should help your dog get used to camping. Have fun and good luck...

I know that last summer we had a family that camped and floated the Illinois river. They left their family pet tied while off for the day, which is a state camp ground. When they came back the dog was gone, a boston. I think if I were traveling I would have a secure tent where the dog could NOT get out at night. I would travel with a portable crate for his safety and at all times have him tagged, ID chipped, what ever it takes, tatoo the ear with a phone no. something in case the animal and you get separated.
Forty years ago, we camped with our family pets, people did not steal things like today, and she was never left alone. With there being allot more people, different areas, and of course check out all things needed to keep on you for your dogs sake, health papers, etc. and what it takes to travel across the border.

We camped several times with Jas (RIP) when she was younger and no one got too much sleep because she was so interested in what was going on outside the tent. She didn't bark, just some whining. Last summer I camped in our backyard with Karlie and Anna one night and it was a similar situation. It's really fun to do so I would recommend it, but you might want to test it out in your backyard first to see how your dog does.
