I would caution those that use their dogs as a deterrent for people walking through your sites. I don't know if the laws are different between states/cities/counties/etc... but I was once told that if someone were to walk through my site and were injured by my dog, I would be the one responsible. Even if my dog was properly leashed and the incident occurred on my site.

It's all about attitude and appearance. Gotta watch out for the small, nimble ones

This really caught my eye, wouldn't have thought that would make a difference. Any idea why?
Would be interesting to hear from others that have opinion on this.

I have to disagree with you on this comment. In our camping travels we have found that more Tent Campers are by far friendlier than some of the TT/ MH goers. They seem more modest and friendlier, not out trying to outdo each other with their toys. Maybe "camping classes" do stick together, which is okay too. I hope I never forget where I started out from. I enjoy seeing the diversity in the CG's.

Now with that said, We, too, have friends that are tent campers and camp with us, as this is what they can afford. We have great time. Set up on the same site. Wouldn't have it any other way. But, we are respectful and OLDER too.

Although, I will agree with the lack of respect and common decency / courtesy these days from the past couple generations. Something got lost along the way.

Oh, and usually we don't have any passer-throughs thanks to our dog. But if people ask to meet her, She, of course, is all too willing for a good petting. She loves attention and "cookies".

You have to read the laws very carefully. Some states you will be liable but others it will be there fault for trespassing on your site.

Most of us that have big dogs that may be the deterrent...... but the truth is they would probably for the most part lick you to death not bite.

I get tied of other campers putting their faces in my dogs face to get her to "kiss" lick them...... happens every time......

Correct. Plus my kids are never outside without one of us....and we are the real "deterrent/enforcement" I'll only ask once that they not cut thru. After that.....well, as they say. Game on.

I'm glad to see some people haven't gotten away from parenting. As for the dog side, I have 2 dogs (both my baby girls) that if we show any signs of sadness they charge in and give you kisses until you cheer up. Neither one has a mean bone in there body. One has a hard tail, but that's a story for another campfire.
