Jobs Working with Dogs for RVers and Campers

Is a job working with dogs and full-time RVing your dream combination? Options range from volunteering at animal shelters, to career positions at dog shows, to working in canine campgrounds.

Some campgrounds cater to dogs, or campers with dogs. The canine friendly campgrounds would be a good place to work as groomer, trainer, or with dogs in some other capacity. They may be open to having you work independently. Or, they may hire you as staff. Cane9Creek RV Park & Campground is one that advertises that they have an on-site groomer.

You might do clicker training or teach clicker training.

Some RVers have a career working with dogs at shows. They show, judge, or trail. They work as handlers and groomers. Others work the shows at trade show reps, for dog food companies or other suppliers.

Working RVer Tip

With over 650 pages on the Work-For-RVers-and-Campers.com website it can sometimes be hard to find exactly what you are looking for. Let our on-site Site Search help you.

Looking for a listing for a particular campground? Wondering where, exactly, we talk about working in Alaska or some other state? Remember reading an article about a particular job, but now can't find it? Want to know if we have any worker profiles or information about working with a circus?

Put your key word or phrase in the search box, just as you would a regular search engine. The difference is that this one searches deep within our site and brings you back all matches.

Your Working While RVing Questions Answered


~~ Steven asks: Can I travel from flea market to flea market and state to state selling hot dogs from a hot dog cart? Do I need a license in every state or is there a national license that I can obtain?

~~ I answered in part: Setting up business with a hot dog vending cart (or any food concession) requires you have a local health inspection and food license. As far as I know, there's no national license. You need to go to the health department in each state where you work. It is likely that you will also need a county and/or city license, too.

~~ Working RVer Frank P., Sr. added: The bureau-cratic red tape can be a real headache when it comes to licensure. However, it may not be necessary to get a state license for so many states.

We started this site after corresponding with thousands of RVers, sharing what we’ve learned from our personal experience as full-time RVers, as well as what we've gleaned from employers and managers who hire and work with work campers and other RV workers.

We do hope we've been instrumental in helping you find the right work situation for your RV lifestyle.

We believe there are many advantages to having an RV home based business that we can take on the road with us. We've found a Watkins Summit Group business works for us.

We are also thankful for SBI!, the "do-all-the-techy-stuff-for-you" e-business building platform that made creating this RV resource site possible.

If you have questions, we're always happy to help. Simply submit them here....
