Dog question at Syracuse
« on: June 01, 2013, 09:44:09 AM »
We will be attending the Good Sam Rally Syracuse. Although dogs are welcome, they even have a dog show, we are concerned that while browsing through all the buildings we would have to leave the dog in the RV. We don't want to leave her cooped up all day. There is no electricity so we are worried about it being too hot for her. I guess we could keep generator running and leave AC on. I have seen pictures from previous rally's that have tons of dogs.

Does anyone have any advice. Do they take their dogs? Is there enough to see and do that the dog can come with you? Or, should we leave the dog at home with the kids? Any advice would be helpful. Thank you all.

We take our labrador with us to rallies but he travels with us everywhere. Usually you can't take dogs with you to the displays and seminars so they stay in the RV. With electric, it's no problem but with no electric and if it's going to be hot, you'll need to leave the generator on so the hairy kids have a/c. You might check on a local doggie day care. Or you might want to leave them home. Dogs do
 take extra work at rallies and they're usually bored.

I would call the The Rally organizers to see if you can switch to a 30 amp site. That is enough to run the A/C while you are gone.

Thank you for the replies. I think we will leave her at home. Electric sites are sold out

I made reservations yesterday for the Syracuse rally, with electric only if we arrived a day early(weds) . I wonder why elec is allocated this way?

Most Good Sams Rallies are allocated so that those with handicaps have first call on the electric sites. Then those left are handed out on a first come first served basis which usually means getting there early. [Usually a day early, and even then you are lined up and escorted to the parking areas in the order in which you arrived at the staging area. Some will get electric, and the remainder will have to obey the generator use hours.]
