Traveling with Bo: Training update and safety product suggestions

Who's a good Bo?! Today we want to show you why an investment into dog obedience and social training can help prepare your dog for the road and well…anywhere else. Plus some extra safety tips!

Here's our video update:

For information on the safety products we showed…keep reading.

Using a temperature monitor that's connected to an app on our phone is a huge relief if we have to leave Bo in the rig for a short time period. Even with fans going and the AC on, we all know that those things can heat up FAST. The RV Pet Safety Temperature Monitor uses cell service and can notify you by text and email alert if the internal temp of your RV starts to get dangerously high.

While on the spendy side, this device delivers on consistency with battery backup and real-time temp reporting. All-in-all, the peace of mind that Bo will be alright if we leave him for a bit is what really makes this for us.

Now the pricing on this is a little tricky but bear with me. The device is one price and on-going support is another. You can pay the on-going support monthly or yearly. Just for you, we arranged a major discount on these monitors.

Actual price:
Monthly – $249/ device  + $15/month (pay as you go)
Yearly – $369 ($249+$120 for subscription)

With the discount codes for RV Lifestyle viewers:
Monthly – $199/ device  + $15/month (pay as you go)

One other product: In order to keep your dog secure in the RV, we recommend you try out a dog safety belt.

Mighty Paw sent us one of these for Bo and it's pretty intuitive to use. Plus their safety belt uses the same specifications for securing child car seats and you can directly connect it to the frame of the vehicle for better security. The safety belt is available at

We like these over other models out there because other dog seat belt systems can easily be released by your dog stepping on the buckle button, but this can not happen with the Mighty Paw safety belt.

Also, keep in mind, many states now require dogs to be in a crate or on a leash while in a vehicle so if you get pulled over without either then there's an annoying ticket to deal with.

For your dog's safety, the seatbelt should also be attached to a safety harness vs. directly to your dog's collar. This is much safer for your dog, especially in an accident or if you'll be leaving him unsupervised. This is the one we have
