hah, looks like a border collie or similar... they do NOT like to be confined. my sons BC chewed through the seatbelts in his car when it was left for a few minutes in the back of the wagon.

Australian Cattle Dog aka Queensland Heeler (ACD, aka ICD = Insane Cattle Dog). Glad my dogs do not do things like that!

This is why proper training is important, it makes bringing your dog along more pleasurable for everyone. I have always trained my dog to not go through a doorway without permission, let alone chew through it.

You can't blame the dog, no matter what the breed is.

It was probably separation anxiety- that can make dogs crazy. Crating inside the trailer would have helped- maybe, some are nuts enough to get out of a crate, too.

Our Australian Shepherd, Jasper, has huge separation anxiety. If we are gone for even 15 minutes he goes berserk when we get back. No crate, and no problem. He knows to behave or deal with the big dog (me) growling meanly at him.

Crates may work, but nothing beats good training. I know I harp on training dogs, this comes from the restrictions placed on us when camping or hiking because of a history of poorly trained dogs causing problems.

A friend watched a dogs reaction to seeing a cat outside the camper. The dog totally trashed the window treatments throughout the camper! Luckily, my indoor cat respects the inside of my Escape. If he feels threatened, he hides under the covers on the bed. If he can’t see you, then you can’t see him!

Saw this on another site with quite a few additional pictures. That pup did a whole lot of damage on the inside also.
