Mine knows the rules... he can't leave the camper without being hooked up. He will actually stand in the camper door and wait for me to snap the long lead on him so he can go out side. We use both 6' and retractable walking leads depending on the situation.

Unfortunately there is a percentage of the population that thinks that they know better or that rules are for every one else. One major reason we don't camp on holiday weekends at the local state parks.

This can lead them, another animal or a person to be hurt.

Yes, humans are the same (not always perfect) but there are laws/rules about dogs being on leads for a good reason- there are not laws or rules about humans being on a lead. We might think that some people should be on a lead but that's a discussion for another time.
X 2 on this. I ran into this over the 4th. Guy next to me dog out no lease. At first I did not bring it up but then he kind of stepped out of bounds when the next morning I was out and he said that he unplugged my small pole light that has our plack with name on it cause the light bothered him at night. I said oh as long as we are on a topic of an issues how about putting your dog on a lease as park rules required. Long story shot I turned lite off but dog still ran loose. Seems like at lot of folks no longer think they need to abide by rules Later RD

Yea there are many rules that some people think don't apply to them for sure. I have no problem at all telling someone to get their pup on a leash or slow down...but that is a whole different thread!

Some people should have a stamp on their forehead "except me", I watched one take off into the I75 at a Tennessee rest stop, it did not end well for the frightened dog.

mind your own business, after the first 'suggestion'. Most people can not be saved from themselves and must learn life's lessons the hard way.

imo.
I don't think the OP did anything wrong at all. She was obviously trying to prevent a tragic accident before it happened. And she mentioned it was her friends' family, not complete strangers.

They didn't heed her advice but it doesn't mean she shouldn't have said anything. If the same thing happened to me I would've felt worse had a not said anything.

Like the folks next to us last weekend, I took Timmy out on his leash and the dog from the next campsite charges over to ours barking at Timmy as I pick him up quickly. "Oh don't worry he's a nice dog." Yeah I can totally tell by the charging and barking.

The parents are responsible for the death of the puppy. Had that been taught the correct way to handle and care for a pet the puppy would still be alive. The child had no reason to have puppy in the first place. That is why we would not sell puppies to families with young children.

I assume the post light was left on after you retired inside; if so, why?
