Living with a pet or pets in a small space.
If you already have a pet, you know that they will require enough space and care. If you are getting a pet, you will soon find out. Are they worth the trouble? Considering all the companionship a furry pet provides, you bet!
Dogs vs. Cats
Of course, the larger the pet (I’m thinking ‘dog’ here), the larger space required for sleeping, feeding, bathing, etc. We also weighed the pros and cons of dogs versus cats: dogs need regular walking; cats need a well-maintained litter box; dogs need to be trained; cats take care of themselves.
Yes, we have a cat. This one has been with us for 17 years. She has been a store cat and an outdoor cat. She has followed us (we have followed her?) from office to RV to condo to an apartment. We can leave her for several days with enough food, water, and litterbox space. We don’t hear too many complaints.
In the past, we have had parakeets. We also love other people’s dogs, ferrets, and fish.
We are now experts on cat flea control and highly recommend the more expensive flea treatment because it works. And, for kitty litter that doesn’t track, stick or smell we have found Arm & Hammer SLIDE brand to be great. We prefer to scoop as needed and add fresh litter to ‘top off’.

The answer will of course be the following:
At the point your dog starts to become aggressive, he is taking no notice at all of you.
He is making his own decisions and will not …
Remember, in RV parks and campgrounds you will have many close neighbors including many dog owners. It will be imperative to have your dog welcomed by all because he or she is so well-behaved.
