Oldtimer, we raised Boxers for many years and have a weakness for them. At one time we had 4 boxers in a 19' Scamp, talk about close especially when the young male decided he was going to take the old man. Not fun trying to wade in between the 4 of them in such close quarters.


We also lost our Abby in July a few days before leaving for Chilliwack to pickup our new 21. What made things better was still having Eli, he just loves to travel. While on the way north we made time to stop at Yellowstone NP. One stop I decided to stay with Eli and my wife went to I think is was the paint pots boardwalk. We positioned our selves at the boardwalk and Eli made sure to greet one and all returning. The best was a family with 3 children that had left their boxer at home for their trip to the park. Needless to say Eli dutifully provided all the necessary Boxer therapy the entire family needed. Then there was the lady that saw him as they drove by hunting a parking spot, she came straight to him and never made it on the boardwalk. This is Eli:

Just got back from our 1st trip with our new Maltese puppy, got a lot of work ahead...

Want's to play with every kid it sees, yapping like crazy the whole time.
Barks at anything that surprises her or is unknown, Parked cars, a bench, parked bikes, trash bags, ducks, other dogs.
Wants to play fetch in the trailer.

Park rules said no barking, only get one warning, we didn't get thrown out.

We got spoiled after a couple years without.

In jan. my 6 mo. Boston and myself stopped in the Home Depot in Bellingham after picking up our new escape 21. We were immediately met by two older employees one of whom asked if it would be o.k. to pet her. No problem as I was holding her. He then told me his Boston was going to be put down in two days due to cancer. The man started to melt and his associate led him away and I told him we had to go. Everybody around us had wet eyes. Loosing one of the best friends you will ever have is not easy. Enjoy them while you can.

Corgis are great dogs.

Cannot stress enough what Bobbie54 said: “Corgis, like most herding dogs, default by nature to barking.”

Corgis herd by barking and nipping. It is what they have been bred to do. You are hoping that the one you get will completely unnaturally NOT bark. Good luck with that.

Yep, even if the breeder says that puppy never barks, once your pup is on its own, it's likely to bark. Might take longer to do much of it. And they are sassy. "Hurry up!" "Feed me!" "Let's go for a walk!" "You said boat, are we going kayaking? Hurry, hurry!" "There is a strange car (person, dog, bird) outside." "I'm bored, do something!" But if you start camping with a young pup and totally discourage barking while camping (don't respond, reward quiet, talk more quietly yourselves) yours may be like mine- they keep it way down camping and even more down at motels, and make up for it the moment they get home from a trip.

I've been fortunate. Of the five Corgis I've had only one was a barker and he responded almost immediately to "NO BARK". I miss each and every one of my Corgis. Maybe not Ira as much as the rest. Ira's sense of humor was annoying at times.

My buddy is still having difficulty putting his awning away, after fixing the bend in the arm. 🐿
And don't attach your dogs leash to the newer automatic retractable awnings!

i travel with two Jack Russels and a standard schnauzer. i love traveling with them we do leave them in the trailer for time away occasionally i make sure they are tired , have water , leave the fan /air conditioner on , and close the shades. they usually sleep. if I am going to be gone for several hours i have someone check on them. If the weather is good usually they can go with us in the car. I agree i always am thinking about them making sure they are OK but for me its worth it. My dogs all love to swim, hike, and kayak with me . In the campground they are tied or in a pen- i don't leave them alone outside -tied or penned too many ways to get into trouble and bark! I couldn't live without a dog. My dogs also often go to work with me at the nursing home so they are well socialized.

Any dog can be trained to not bark, I have had to do it with a few. I mostly only allow barking at a door knock or similar, as it is a good defensive thing. Barking at fake stuff while out playing is fine too, just not excessively.

My wife keeps trying to make me be quieter too.
