    Default First full truck to trial 7 Dogs

    This will be my first trip with a full truck. I am going for three day to a trial in Oregon and would like to know about how much water should I bring.
    All my trips in the passed have been with only 3 dog, is their anything that would be needed out of the ordinarily when adding 4 more.
    Thanks Keith

    No magic number... think ]of what you need and take more- Put a hose in your truck, so if you run low on water, you can fill it up at the hotel.
    Never know if you may have to clean up an accident in a crate and have to use up all your water.....

    All you have to do is live in Calle and your special, sorry you can't make the trip I alway try to bring my own, in the past I have had my dog get the revenge on motel water.

    I like to plan at least a gallon of water each day per dog. This covers drinking water & spillage/waste. If there is a concern about switching water while away, I would recommend that you start with what you would need for 2 days; then refill your container with the new location's water so that it is mixed in with your "home" water. Similar to what you would do to switch a dog from one food to another.

    Some dogs will not have a problem with a change in water; some will. I had a dog come in for training that was accustomed to "city" water. Took him a few days to get used to our "well" water.

    Good luck at your trial.

    How many series do you plan on running? Could be a long trip, could be a short trip...
