Sorry about your incident glad no one was seriously injured..... we have had dogs aggressive to our Boxers in campgrounds....... but never an incident.....ours just look at the other dogs like they are crazy. Your incident tells me a lot about the dogs owners as Boxers can be.... but are rarely aggressive. Our family has owned several over the years & never have had an aggressive one or ever an issue... But we never take a chance with any breed, as we always keep them on a leash & a close eye on them when camping even though they are never on a leash at home........ They are by far the most even tempered dog breed we have ever owned.

I just do not understand how any dog owners think it is OK not to have their dog on a leash when camping or on the Beach ...........They are in new surroundings with many different people from what they are accustom to........ We see it all to often though......

I don't think I would suggest carrying an open pocket knife any where as you are really asking for trouble.... If the dog doesn't get you, an aggressive dog owner might or you would be the one charged........... You may be made out to be the attacker...........

Another reason to ensure that our Boxers are on leashes is people..... We had three different complete strangers come up to us on the beach last time we were there, walking them & encourage our Boxers to jump on them & give them "kisses" lick them because they missed their Boxers by leaving them at home..... of course this can be any large bread...... then the next person the dog wants to do that to mistakes it for aggression. I really don't understand why someone would go up to a strange dog & put their face near its mouth & have it lick them........... not knowing whether the dog might bite them ......ours would not but who knows what the dog might see a someone being aggressive toward it or us.

Oaklevel, I hope you don't think that I meant the Boxer breed is aggressive. I never thought that at all. It's the owners I blame, animals are just animals. in fact there were 2 other Boxers in the CG also. We always say hi to people and ask if it's okay for our dog to approach and say hi as dogs do. Some people say no and others say yes. we are also the type of campers that I respect your space. There are a lot that just think they can walk through your space. I guess some people are stupid or rudd. These people were just plain stupid.......

No I don't think you were implying that at all & I agree with you 100 % it is the owners of any breed that can make them aggressive. What I do not understand is why people don't think before they do things like leave their dogs unleashed, don't have the need to pick up after them or think they are the only ones in the campground and the rules don't apply to them..

Most people ask before they pet our dogs but I think it is so crazy the ones thank just come up to us encourage our dogs to jump up on them & allow (or have them) lick them on the face. I know they miss theirs but I would never do that to a strangers dog........ I feel like washing Sadie's mouth out afterwards.

I don't understand campers that leave their pets in their Rv alone. I have never see a campground that lets you leave pets unattended. I have seen many campers do just that. If people keep abusing the rules the campgrounds will just say no pets.

FYI, we have a three year old Catahoula, he is a split personality, loving and goofy to some, protective and territorial to others. He is also very curious regarding wildlife, as a hunting/herding breed this is natural, and while he has never attacked anything he can be quite aggressive. We keep him leashed and attended at all times, as should all pet owners.

I know because on more than one occasion i have gone back and just listened to see if i can hear anything.... Nothing. Still don't understand that rule?

Here is my take on that rule.

When you leave your pet unattended you have no idea what it is doing or will do. It may bark and annoy other guests, it may escape your rig, it may take a nap until you get back. The thing is, you are not in control of you pet if you are not there. You leave your dog home alone, those are familiar surroundings, not so with an RV park, all kinds of sights, sounds, and smells! Lastly, the campground has stated it as a rule, just because you don't see the logic, or think it shouldn't apply to you, it does.

Ya well we full time so our to fur monsters are left unattended often. They most likely bark at people going by just like they do when we are home with them. We close the windows turn on the air or heat and open the vents in case the power goes out. We are gone for 3-4 hours sometimes and we can't always take them with us. They are young and will get better but they aren't perfect. I ask the neighbors if they bark and they do but it's not bad and they say it's not an issue. I'm sure they do annoy a bit but I'm annoyed by some also. It's camping relax its not abuse to leave them in a RV.

Sounds like you have no problem with breaking park rules, unless you camp at a campground that allows unattended pets. In either case I'm glad you aren't close to me, got enough rule breakers around here.

It is no wonder all the deer and other wild life has disappeared from Florida State Parks. We go camping for the wildlife and the peaceful solitude of the State parks. When a squirrel (about the only wildlife other than Mosquitos left) runs by the dogs start barking which starts more dogs barking. Some campers light up their sites like Disney World. Others must think I enjoy their taste of music with outside speakers. If you enjoy this kind of camping I wish you would stay in Private Parks.

FRIENDLY NOTE BY SITE TEAM:

There is no need to get upset over this, one way or another. Everyone is entitled to their opinion.

The Thanksgiving Holidays are upon us, and let just all be thankful that we are able to go camping/RV'ing.
