How often does your pet accompany you on motorhome trips?
He has been motoring with us since he was 12 weeks old.
What type of motorhome do you own:
Last year we moved up from a 24-foot type C to a 30-foot Winnebago type A. It might seem small to some people but it's huge to us.
Was it easy for your pet to adapt to motorhome travel?
Yes. We do mostly dry-camping, and we don't go on many long trips. Most of our trips have been here in California, but Harley did go with us to Washington last summer. The beaches were perfect for dogs.
What is your favorite activity to do with your pet while traveling?
Harley loves to chase us on when we're riding our four-wheel all-terrain vehicles. He requires lots of exercise! He would play Frisbee all day long if we let him.
