It can only come through on your smart phone if you have cell service. There are many areas in a National Park where you may be sightseeing that don't get cell service - so you will not know the dog is barking until you head back to an area where there is cell service.

Now if you never travel and stay where cell phone service is limited, then the webcam is very helpful. And spending the majority of your time in places with service can definitely give you a better idea of whether your dog will bark a lot or not.

But not every campground has effective internet service and not every place has cell service. And not every RVer limits their travels to areas with internet and cell service.

So you need to be aware of potential gaps in the reliability of such tools before depending on them.

I agree service can be sporadic that is the nature of cell phones.
However my cell phone works 90% of the time. Most of those that monitor their dogs have hotspots or secondary cell phones. They are not relying on CG wifi.
For me the bigger issue is knowing your dog.
I agree with your comments on this point. Many are confident in their dogs behavior and know the dog does not bark.
However some are also confident in their dogs behavior and don't really care if their dog barks.
I imagine they are the same pet owners that don't clean up.
In the end the bad pet owners give us all a bad name...no internet necessary

I really appreciate the low keyed, common sense posts on this subject. A lot of times it gets way out of line. Lantley is correct, we have two Verizon mi-fi hotspots. One stays in the fiver and the other one goes with us. The one we keep on our person only has 10 gb but we only use it to make sure our smart phones have a connection.
Everyone has good points on this subject.

I am also over the top with wanting to stay tethered to our dogs in the RV.....it's a given to have a Temp monitor( I use the Verizon based Marcell), I also use a Web Cam having Verizon, AT&T and T mobile hot spots......but I can always find someplace where cell is no good at all even with all the latest boosters and gadjets! Yellowstone historically is one such "dead Zone"!

This is where I agree with a previous poster, our dogs are our responsibilty, one that we take seriously and happily...if one of us has to stay behind to ensure tranquality, then that's what happens!

Above all, read the official national park rules. This is also the best site for information of all kinds... things to do, road information, etc.
