We're going camping in a few months and unfortunately, there is poison ivy around the site. Can a dog with short hair get the rash from it? She's a very short haired JRT.

YES....and you can get it from the dog if you pet/rub her just after she touches it also.

Keep her on leash with you at all times. As long as you don't go into it she can't either.
