We took Bella camping this weekend for the first time and she was great! Our tent has a closet and she chose to make that her own bedroom! Never heard a peep out of her. We left a 25 foot leash on her loose and only had to grab it once. She stayed right with us. Took her swimming and she bounced like a kangaroo over the waves! She played with bigger dogs, a Dane and Pit/Boxer and took both of them down repeatedly even though she is just a puppy! She will definitely go with us all the time!
