A few weeks back we were walking our two little guys on a park trail. We crossed paths with two sets of people that were a quarter mile apart but headed in the same direction (opposite direction as us). Each group had an unleashed, large dog and the dogs were running ahead of the owners as most unleashed dogs seem to do. As each group passed us, we picked our little guys up when we spotted their dog. It was clear to us that the second set of people were walking at a faster pace then the first set. In a few minutes we heard the eruption. Their un-leashed dogs had found each other and at least one of the dogs did not appreciate the other. Hope the dogs were not hurt and a lesson was learned by the owners but I have doubts.

NO excuse to not pick up after your pets, especially since most RV parks that I've been to have bag dispensers (free bags...come on!) near the dog play areas.

Gotta love it when other campers let their dogs mosey on over into your site space to pee and poop.

Seriously?

Gotta agree with you on this one. It is really not hard to pick up after a dog. Oh and if you don't like the bone, we got a decent fire hydrant one from target. These attachments are cheap and easy to use. Bags are pretty much universal for these things. And yes, use a free bag or even use an old plastic grocery bag if you ran out of doggie bags.

Here are the pet rules for the campground we are taking our sabres maiden voyage to next weekend. "Pets must be on a leash while outside the camper/tent and attended at all times. Anyone walking a pet must have someting in their possession to clean up after their pet. $25.00 fine if caught not picking up after your pet and/or asked to leave!!! A continually barking dog will not be tolerated." To me these are a welcome and very reasonable set of rules/restrictions. I applaud the owners for this.

The campground we are headed to today has instituted a $100 fine if caught not picking up after your pet. Rules posted everywhere. They also have many well stocked dogie bag stations. So no excuses that you forgot the bag....The fine goes to animal charities of their area. They have nearly 500 employees in the summer months so............. It will be interesting to see how this works out

Dogs that bark continuously are a nuisance regardless of size or breed!

I agree about pet rules just as I agree about the human one too, like quite hours, number people per site, drinking in public areas, and so on. As far as restricting certain breeds it is the owners responsibility to determine if a dog can deal with the public. It will be the owner that gets sued if something happens. I deal with this almost everyday in my job and I truly believe it is not the breed but the owners. I have seen many mean wiener dogs.

X eleventy on that! I cannot abide a yapper!

Our Fred is too lazy to bark. Heck if he's outside and decides he wants back in he'll "woof" *once* at the back door and that's IT.

Sneak calls him a four legged commercial for Valium.

I think we *finally* figured out his breeding; half doxy half Pomeranian....Dachseranian? Pomshund? Regardless...he's 22 lbs. of rotten!

I read an article on The Blaze I think that said soon all dogs were going to be "outlawed" from State Parks and National Parks/Forest. Because of the liabilities the campgrounds are experiencing.

If that happens then all campgrounds are soon to follow.

I am sure not all Parks will outlaw dogs. And the ones that don't have restrictions will be packed. All the campgrounds we go to I would say 90 percent of the people have dogs. That is the great thing about camping you can bring your dogs, kids, and other family members. I still don't see how it is a liability for the campground to allow dogs. When you camp you are renting a space. If you somehow damage someone elses property you have the liability not the campground. It is no different if your dog bites someone. As far as noise then kids should be banned, no more diesel engines in campgrounds, no more laughing around the camp fire. None of which I have ever been irradiated by. I just realized I am not ready for the retirement home. I love people and dogs and the sound s they make.

Thank you for the head's up. Didn't know this. I will avoid KOA campgrounds at all costs because of their breed restrictions. Even if I had two sweet, quiet beagles I wouldn't stay in one. They won't get a dime from me.

This is our normal parks pet policy ,,.........................Owners must clean up after their pets. Pets must be on a leash at all times. Pets are not allowed in restrooms, pool, pavilio n or
beach areas. Do not leave pets unattended. Excessive barking of dogs may result in a request to remove dog from the facility. You
must have proof of rabies vaccinations upon arrival to the resort.
Excluded Dogs: Chow, Doberman, Pit Bull Terrier, Rottweiler, Akita, Mastiff, German Shepherd, Presa Canario, Wolf, Wolf Hybrids,
Huskies, Dalmatians, Airedales, Great Danes, Staffordshire Terriers, Alaskan Malamutes, Siberian Huskies and any dog that is a mixture
of these breeds are not allowed. Any dog with a history of biting will not be acceptable.
**Excluded Dogs will be allowed providing owner carries a $300,000.00 liability insurance policy. Any dog with a history of biting
will not be acceptable.
