Travelling with an bear or two


My brother and I may be doing this soon...by bear we mean a Newfoundland dog or two to add with our lab Sandy....just wondering if anyone has travelled with a giant dog breed such as the Newfoundland...and your experiences...

Travelled with Shepherds years ago, last mate was a Red Cattle. Large dogs have a habit of severe fumigation of confined spaces when in van. They certainly can clear the sinus passages on a cold wintery night, making it necessary to seek the fresh air outside, regardless of weather or temperature. Other than that peculiarity they are great to be with, and I'd do it all over again if the Child-Bride would let me.

 Kelpies are good for that too........... our creamy can clear a room/the bus like nobody's business.

Yeah, we know...Labradors are very bad for that...they have what we call an active GPU (gas production unit), permeates and lingers in a tent, and a van for ages...becomes a little more potent inside a Volvo 240 wagon with the windows only open a smidgen in the winter. Then the door swings open and a blue face emerges LOL

I think he already knows he/she is doing it, he's asking if anyone else does it. Anyone else as in not himself/herself!

Our previous dogs, 2 Labs and 2 Kelpie x's ( Brady bunch of dogs) were smelly. We changed their diet to Eukanuba dry food and just a small amount of Can food, and the smell disappeared

Our present 2 dogs, German Shorted Haired Pointer and GSP X Kelpie are on the same diet as the previous dogs and hardly ever break wind.
If they have been into a kennel for a couple of weeks, when we get them back they can be a bit on the nose until they body gets used to their normal food again.
Normal dry food is full of fillers, that is why they only get smaller portions of the Eukanuba. It is more expensive but kg for kg goes a lot further.
