We use a portable ultrasonic bark device to deter any undesired barking. My neighbors (at home) have a dog who used to visciously bark at me once he saw me thru the chain link fence at the back of our property....I had been experimenting with my dogs with the ultrasonic device & found it worked wonderfully in keeping them from joining in song with the dogs in the area who bark just to bark...anyway, the neighbor dog irritated me beyond tolerance...sick of him harrassing my dogs and me. so I grabbed the device turned it up (for distance) and aimed it at him. He stopped after the first bark and ducked his head and trotted away...it took 2x of him experiencing thos & no lpngers harrasses me across the bridle path that seperates our properties.
Take it on trips (esp at dog shows), the dogs are reminded barking not acceptable..dont have to keep it on the whole time...they are smart enough to know...but sure as heck wont hesitate to point it at a nuisiance barker if I am ever at a campground having my peace destroyed...maybe put my unit on loan to them haha

Ultrasonic, hmmmmm, I just ordered a collar that has tone,vibration and shock, I hope not to use the shock. I'm not sure I know what ultrasonic is, I'm guessing it's a sound the dogs can hear and not humans?

Ultrasonic emits a high pitched frequency sound only heard by the dogs and activated when the dog barks. You can tell its activated and bursting a frequency because a little red light flashes. You can set the sensitivity to the built in microphone so that it wont constantly activate. My friend had great success with it with her Great Danes and home & at the shows, so I thought I'd try with my dogs, as they tend to get noisy when they are playing & not used to new neighbors kids noise....so, I thought I'd give it a try. It is a great behavioir distractor - they acknowledge that with the bark comes the frequency noise...it is peaceful once again at oir hoise....and nice that the neighbor dog leaves me alone. ;-)

What do you guys do? sneak them in and hope for the best?
Don't feel bad , we had a potential campground decline us because of our Lab retriever. Now seriously I am more frightened of getting bitten by a smaller dog than a Lab or Golden.
It basically comes down to poop and noise. I think if your dogs are behaved and you clean up after them (duh!) what difference if you have 10 dogs?

My wife and I will never leave our pets in kennels or board them. They are part of our family. Love the photos of all the precious doggies.

Alan, I totally understand - small dogs make me nervous....besides the joke is that a chihiahia cohld easily kill a bullmastiff....so we avoid them. LOL

One thing we have found that sometimes helps tip the scales with CG owners is if the dog jas a CGC certificate (Canine Good Citizen)...dog is formally tested for socialibility reaction to people and dogs.

As you can see from my girl's happy face (this reaction from asking if she wants a cookie) it can be down right frightening for someone watching her...we make sure to walk thru the grounds and let people see and meet the dogs...breed education is always good...and of course, we make sure people see us carrying our poop bags when walking.

Only if the bullmastiff got choked on him.

Make sure my dogs behave, and we never had an issue, even if the limit is two dogs. We travel with 2 large dogs and a puppy, so really 2.5 dogs!

We were asked When we made reservations what breed dog we had. When we told them great Pyrenees the campground said his breed was not on the bad list he was fine. When we showed up and my 10 year old walked him around the campground on his gentle leader/ halty they asked us to leave. He hadn't barked or even looked at the other dogs or people in any way! They thought it was a muzzle!!!
