Camping with Your Dogs- Do you do it?

We have a cottage out in the muskoka's (about 6 hours from us), and all my dogs LOVE to spend time up there. We are right on the lake, and the two cottages beside us are other family members cottages. The road is actually named after our last name. There are lots of dogs when my whole family is kids and it gets up to about 10 fur babies running around and having a great time!

I was thinking it would also be fun to do some tenting with the dogs. There are a few camp sites around here that I wouldnt mind staying at...

Does anyone else camp with your dogs? What are your experiences??

We took our last dog camping with us and it worked out well.  She slept in our tent with us and we set up a separate bed for her next to us (we cheat and use an air mattress for ourselves).  The first few nights was a bit awkward for her and she wasn't sure what was going on, what was up with the fire and all the strange noises etc.  Didn't help that it rained that night and that can be pretty loud inside a tent.  By night 3 she couldn't wait to get in the tent with us and she loved it in there.  With Cassius and any new dog I might set up a tent in the yard before we go for a day or two and just take them in and out and let them know it is ok.  Plus you don't want them to do the little circle, bedmaking, thing and tear the bottom of the tent so you want to get them used to it.  We hope to get Cassius out there this summer but we'll see.
