Absolutely. I have had 4 Dobies over the years, and never had a vicious dog. I had one that was high strung and fearful, a few obedience courses took care of that. The one I have now ........if/when I go full time he will be where he is always, on leash, with me. If he's not allowed, I don't go.

From what I've seen over the years, most bans are based on prior bad experiences and lawsuits. We belong to a campground that has a 40# wt limit. We ask why and was told it was the result of a lawsuit several years back that cost the cg a lot of money.

All you have to do is take your dog for a walk, even though there are rules in place that they must be on a leash there is always someone who think that it only applies to other people, we've all run into them "the me" crowd, and as OC said all the rules are based on past experience usually negative.

All dogs CAN bite and that includes mine or yours.

I am usually very anti-insurance industry, but several online sources have stated they paid out nearly a half-billion dollars in dog bite related claims in the year 2013 alone. That's a half billion dollars (500 million) of claims that I'm sure many of the owners thought would never be caused by their beloved family pet.

That 500 million also accounts for nearly one-third of ALL home owners insurance claims. And everyone knows whose pocket this half billion dollars really comes from.

Dog-Bite Claims Up 5.5%; Insurers Pay Out $483M In 2013 - Top News - InsuranceNewsNet.com

I love my dog as much as anyone, but I won't/can't fault a campground for not allowing certain breeds/sizes (or even having a blanket ban)....especially since the irresponsible owners won't follow the rules and keep their dog on a leash.

The real problem are the owners of aggressive dogs ... The same ones who often don't use leashes and feel their dog is safe despite raising it to be aggressive. You can't regulate stupid.

I've always given this scenario regarding rights: you have the right to swing your fists 24/7, but when one of your fists makes contact with my nose, your right has violated my right.

I have no desire to camp next to an owner who brings his/her pit bull camping with them, especially when I have my 22 lb. gentle spirited long-haired doxy with us.

X eleventy!

While in Pigeon Forge last year a family came in with an English Bull Dog (the mack truck hood ornament type). Five VERY unruly children as well.

They flat out refused to keep the dog on a leash. He stayed in the creek annoying people trying to fish and jumping on children playing in the water. He ran thru the camp site of an elderly couple, jumped in to the disabled woman's lap, scratched her legs horribly and nearly knocked her chair over.

After being warned twice they were asked to leave.

Oh, and one of their young boys kept riding his bike thru that same elderly couple's site, knocking things over and creating general havoc all over the camp site.

Our Fred is NEVER off leash. We abide by the rules and expect others to do the same. Fred is always on leash not just because of the rules, but for HIS OWN safety. Our dog is dependent on us, just like children. It is OUR job to protect and care for him.

Uhhhh breed? History? Genetics?

I *know* our dog. I don't *know* your dog. But I do know the history behind pit bulls. I do know your dog outweighs mine nearly 5 to 1.

My dog doesn't have the history your dog's breed does.

Answer this: why was the pit bull dog breed created? for what use?


(FTR we're not sure what our dog's thoroughbred is. He's a rescue. We were told he's half poodle half doxy, but I see NO sign of poodle. I think we've narrowed it down to half doxy, half Pomeranian.)

We have friends who own and breed Old English Mastiffs. The sire weighs 200 lbs. I would *never* take our Fred to their house, especially since the dam has a litter of eight 3 week old puppies right now.

I have the right...and responsibility.... to make smart choices when it comes to OUR dog. If you see that as "profiling" your dog, so be it. Our dog's breed has never been restricted from any camp/park.
