Pawe­some lessons learned

Camper Trailer Australia - - CAMPING WITH DOGS -

I LEARNED the hard way not to change a dog’s diet for the first time while you’re camp­ing. What’s the hard way, you ask? Well, Zara the Dober­man used to spend most nights camped in­side the old Troopy, while I got ban­ished to the swag. That was un­til I woke up one morn­ing to an en­tire ve­hi­cle ab­so­lutely cov­ered in dog vomit. Yep, you can just imag­ine the smell, not to men­tion my new vo­cab­u­lary! Af­ter four hours hos­ing it out and scrub­bing with dis­in­fec­tant, it was good enough to drive home; at least with my head out the win­dow. It still took a good week or two to get rid of the smell, and that was af­ter air­ing it out with the in­te­rior re­moved. These days, it’s a strict diet of dog bis­cuits and most of her nights are now spent in a dog cage – just in case!
