I personally would hope so, yes.

I would think I'm in the majority, too. Maybe not.

I raised dogs for 25 years. I raised kids that long. I never let either be unruly or inconsiderate to others, especially in public.......restaurant, or anywhere. I can't see just simply smiling while your dog takes a dump in front of me while I'm chillin' at my campsite. Apparently there are those that think my attitude is awful for that.

I don't understand that. But ok.

And no, I'd never hit anyone physically. But I'd ask them to move along. I see NO difference in your dog doing that on my campsite than on my lawn at home.

Am I that much in the minority????

I think the difference is the home vs the campground

My dogs know where to poop at home... they don't at a campground. They are just trying to do thier business.

But I have lots of folks walk their dogs on a leash past my house......and that's where they stop to do their business.

LOOK, I'm not a dog hater. I love dogs. I raised and sold dogs of several breeds for many years. Bring your dog by and let me pet it and see it. I love 'em.

But when the 9th guy brings his dog by MY campsite and for the 9th time, the 9th dog (or 18th, most have 2) poops on my campsite, I can't even let my grandkids play around for stepping in it. IF you pick it up, then I'm not talking to you. But those who not only allow it, but apparently approve of it, just baffle me.

It's not friendly behavior and I admit it ticks me off. If I'm in the minority, so be it.

S_it happens we always pick up after our dogs but can not always predict where they are going to go

In the campground we go to the most if you don't pick up the dogs stuff.... and you get caught perpare to pay $100 no warnings

Yeah. As long as they pick it up immediately, I'm okay. I hate it when people turn their dogs loose - completely loose while they set up camp.

I take my dog to were the kids play in the sand to re leave it's self. not really but would like to sometimes. I have to agree letting a dog hunch up in front of someone is not real nice. Most places have an area to drag your mutt to away from people and yes I have a dog and the little blue bags.

We took this pet peeve to another level a couple years ago. On our way to St.Paul and we stop at the Jellystone in Warrens WI. Check in, go to our site - there is somebody setup on it. No big deal - they are the only people in the entire row of 20 sites.

Go back to the office - now its a mad house. No place to turn the trailer around, so I park off to the side in front of about 500 rental golf carts. Go is, wait through the line, tell them the issue. of course, the woman won't give us one of the dozens of empty sites - we're staying 1 night on a Monday??? Its now 4:00. The only reason we stopped here is so after 2 long days of driving my son can go to the mini water park they have - which closes at 6:00. So now we wait for her to call some guy to run a mile out there in a golf cart and kick the people out. So we send the kid out to the camper in front of the office. Told him to change and DW will take him to water park while I wait for them to sort this out. Finally get this resolved and go to out to pull the trailer back up to the site - and I find a bright orange paper under the windshield wiper. A "courtesy notice" from park security that I was illegally parked!!??

Somebody takes our site, then I end up with a parking ticket from a Jellystone rent-a-cop... Luckily he wasn't around to site me for littering after I read his "courtesy notice."

Then I get to the perpendicular site and there are no aprons, and then some dog had the nerve to poop on the grass...

But it all ended well. They did allow late checkouts and we didn't have to be on the road early the next day, so DS hit the water rides the next morning when they opened. No lines so he had a ball, and he still thinks that parking ticket was hilarious...

When I lived in the city people would let their dog go right in front of you, look directly at you, and keep walking.

Second time it was this same guy. I looked at him and said " I recommend you pick that up, cause I'm gonna throw it at your face, and I have great aim". He didn't believe me till I went to grab it. Luckily he picked it up before me, and he didn't have bags. I have dogs, I clean up after them, yes I have forgotten bags. But I come back and clean it up. If you clean up like you should we will never have a problem

Which brings me to another pet peeve:.......... the campground we go to supplies pet poop bags for those without on a post........ but you sit there and watch people take 30-40 bags each cause there free.......

It's funny reading all these. Makes me wonder why we camp at all. In fact it's because of the proliferation of lowlifes in the CGs now that we'll buy 30 or 40 acres in our favorite area and "camp" there.

We've camped for 45 years and it seems to get worse every year. We've camped in every state but #49 and #50, so we don't need to travel.

Antisocial? No. Just selectively social.
