Funny, my Molly also has a gentle leader, and lots of people ask if it is a muzzle. Molly is a sweetheart and loves everyone, but she also loves to pull, and I explain that. I have never had a problem with the campground, but then I usually stay at State and Federal campgrounds that don't have pet restrictions.

That really upsets me. Those leads are recommended for controlling walking NOT aggressive behaviour. Some large dogs have a problem with following and being lead around. That brand of halter is ideal for larger dogs who will ignore a "choker" anyway but that is not to imply the dog has any anger issues. Seriously if you don't know....ask...but don't be a fool. That is as bad as racism toward dogs based on size. Kinda silly.

That's Terrible!!!!
would you care to share the name of the CG with us?
I certainly will NOT give them my business even if they were welcoming of our dogs.

We are finding it difficult finding CG that will accept 3 dogs.
What do you guys do? sneak them in and hope for the best?

We used to sneak people into the DriveIn movie in the trunk. The back seat would fold down enough for them to climb through.

I camped regularly with 3 dogs, even where limit of 2. They are always on a drop line, always on leash, I am fanatical about cleaning up and never leave them outside the unit if I'm not there with them. When one gets walked, the others are in the trailer. I've never had a problem. I have 7 and will be camping with all of them. We went to a dog show and the small yappy dogs across from us made a whole lot noise than my 7 Siberians. One got loose off the drop line and he ran around a bit, but ran straight to me as I went to the truck to get treats to catch him. I've never had a problem with excessive noise or complaints. Most people love my guys and I frequently get comments about how well mannered and good they are.

I've encountered campsites with only 1 dog which was a lot more obnoxious because they were just left there to bark their fool heads off. I have a friend with 1 hound who just runs her and is so rude. I would never go camping with him. Even when we go for ice cream, he barks and barks non-stop in the back of her SUV and is VERY obnoxious. My feeling is that it's not the number of dogs, it's the management. One badly managed dog can cause more nuisance and damage than a dozen well managed dogs.

I have an Ipod with classical music on it that I play at home to calm them down. I've used it camping and it works like a charm, they just calm down with no whining or carrying on. Also, they like to watch TV, especially crime dramas. It keeps them occupied and prevents boredom which can lead to barking or whining.
Another thing that works is to long up Kong toys with peanut butter, or sardines and freeze them. Give them to the dog, or a nice marrow bone and it will keep them busy while you're gone.
Fortunately, Siberians are actually a very quiet breed. LOL One good thing about purebreds is that when you take multiple and just walk them one at a time most people think you're just walking the same dog a LOT!

People are so ignorant. My older male wore a Halti for several years because he's a puller. I have a 17 month old pup who needs one for the same reason. I just point out to people that it's like a horse halter and it's because the dog pulls and I'm not very strong. Yes, have heard comments about muzzle in the past and point out the dog easily opens it's mouth and then I explain the concept of a Halti or Gentle Leader.

Amazing that people don't seem to think anything of the prong collars, or choke collars which cause 80% of the dogs who wear them cervical vertebrae damage.

It really helps if your dogs are well trained. 4 of mine are show dogs and the one has several obedience titles. I usually tell people their credentials and offer to leave if we're offensive. Mine can't be trusted in X-pens though...they are working lines and would be over a 4ft x-pen before I could say Iditarod. I do use x-pens though to keep people away from my site.
I camped at the KOA in Herkimer NY with 3 when I had a mechanical breakdown on my way to a dog show. It was full of Boy Scouts that weekend. I only had one problem, with a kid teasing my dogs as he walked by while they were tied out. I just changed the tie out to the back of my spot and didn't leave them out by themselves when the kids were around. No problems after that. Remarkable really.

When I've had to leave my dogs in the unit and go away, I usually alert my neighbors to what I'm doing, that the dogs are in the trailer and leave them my cell phone number. Even just making those gestures can stave off problems.
