I think I've made my points as clear as I can. I know I will not change everyone's minds, I just hope my education sunk in a little. I will continue to agree to disagree on the issue. I will also, continue to advise everyone to be smart when approaching any dog they do not know, regardless of size or breed. I also will continue to educate those I encounter that are not responsible in their dog ownership in hopes of preventing future issues for them or others around them.

IIRC, Pit bulls used to be known as the "Nanny dog" because they are so good with kids.
A Rottweiler I had known since it was a puppy ripped my right arm open. 20+ stitches on one location alone.
Any dog can bite.

Yes, we understand that Bella can appear intimidating by her sheer size and because her breed has a bad reputation. We also understand that there are no bad dogs, but bad owners.

We've found that KOA has breed restrictions in place, and we are unable to camp at any KOA with her. We've run into a few other places that won't allow her because of her breed. We were fortunate that one place we arrived at had a breed restriction, but when the owner met Bella he agreed to allow her to stay. (I think it was because she licked his face and used her magic to persuade him.)

Does anyone know of a site with a list of campgrounds that accept pets or have breed restrictions? Or perhaps we could start one here on this site?

Meet Cujo:


And this is Bella:


Does the KOA campground ask to see the dog during check-in?

We are at a KOA right now and have seen three pit bulls.

Can't believe this thread is still going, laws and rules are made based on statistics. This is just as bad as arguing religion and politics, never a resolution.

Are there rules of how long a thread can be?

We will be doing a stopover for the night leaving in the morning, the dog will poop 2x and we won't walk it. In out gone.

you forgot to add a towing thread.

I am a dog owner of 2. Im glad there is strict rules about dogs in cg.
A few week ago I had a confrontation with a fellow campers German Shepard.

After several very long minutes the owners showed up. Scared the crap outta me.

No I don't think so, are there rules about commenting on the futility of a subject and how it can be beaten just like a dead horse.

As long as folks can play nice it can go on indefinitely.

corkybird,

Your question seems to indicate you'd risk sneaking a dog in that is prohibited? I'd hate to arrive at a park site, go thru all the contortions of getting all set up, just to be evicted once someone finds out we have a dog that is not allowed, especially at night.

That can and *does* happen. Sometimes it's not even a dog specifically prohibited, but rather because of its lack of training and/or behavior. I saw that happen in Pigeon Forge, as I stated up-thread.

They're rules, not suggestions. Always call ahead if you have a pet you "think" might be a problem.

(chuckle) sneaking Fred in isn't an option....he's always standing with his paws on the truck door's arm rest....SO excited to be there!
