Hi there! I'm new here so I apologize if I'm not posting in the correct spot. I'm adopting a Pomchi (Pomeranian/ chihuahua) puppy next month on the 15th of August. The timing isn't perfect as I have a non-refundable annual family camping trip booked for the 21st of August to the 26th, which unfortunately had to be booked months in advance otherwise I would have planned it better. Puppy will be 8.5 weeks by then, with his first set of shots. I've been hearing mixed opinions about whether or not I can safely bring him with me. It's not an option for him to stay with the breeder longer, nor is it an option for him to stay home with family. I was planning on sanitizing my tent before going (which is a large 8-10 person one with plenty of room to play), packing a play pen, plus a large tarp that I could lay outside for him with blankets and chew toys. I'd be with him and he'd be on leash while playing on the tarp so he doesn't run off.. What does everybody think? Is this possible to safely do as long as he doesn't come into contact with the ground? Or am I being completely unrealistic? This camping trip is all about relaxation so I'll have more than enough time for him. For personal reasons it's really important to me to be able to go, but obviously so is my puppy's health. I'm hoping to be able to make this work, but if not I'll of course put my puppy's well being first.

Thanks for the replies! I'm going to make some calls on Monday and see how common Parvo is in the area.
The breeder is traveling here with the pup from a ways away hence why she is unable to keep him longer.

On Vancouver Island so yes it is summer. By the end of August it isn't usually too hot but if I do take him I will definitely be mindful of temperature regulation and keeping him cool!
She didn't specify but I believe she is yes. It's about a day's drive if not. She has other obligations here as well that's why she isn't able to come any other time.
