We have 2 very small dogs (shih Tzu's), we never leave them outside alone, don't allow all the barking that some peoples dogs do, walking is on a leash shorter than 6'. We do have a portable kennel for dogs their size also.
When we do go for walks we try to give a lot of space when walking past other campers with dogs. Most parks we have been to allow 2 pets and yet I always ck the pet policy before making reservations.
You see people with the 20' tie outs all the while or the ones running loose or dog that doesn't obey and no one can walk by that camper, my favorite is the one that is left out and barks all night long.
It all comes down to there are some responsible people and some irresponsible , the irresponsible ones are make things hard on the rest

Dogs will usually stop barking.... drunks hardly ever stop being annoying. We camped at a private campground several times....LOUD "BAND" is keeping me out forever. One night till 12+...next night till 2+

If had gone over... there would have been a scuffle. Thank goodness it was hot. TV and A/C muffled most of it.

A band at a camp site? I would have a major issue with that. Not sure I could have ignored that myself. Good for you.
We stopped at a CG last week and had to pick up two bags of dog poo before I could even let my dogs out of the MH. When we left the next day their dog had peed on my tire and rims. No class people but I didn't say anything.

OK folks!
This topic is a hot one fer sure.

Well many of the people in the Thread have seen our little dog much Like i saw Glenn's dog at Goshen. In the week we spent there I new saw an issue in our area with a dog. All were leashed. We crate our dog and provide a radio to mask sound outside to keep her quiet. To our knowledge our dog behaves herself when we are away.

I have been attacked with our dog in our site when a big collie/shepherd cross got away form a 6 yr old girl, I had our dog in my arms. The owner could not control the dog and had to use all his strength to pull the dog back. The owner never went by our site for the rest of the stay.

My first experience camping with our new trailer was at a state campground, we saw dogs running free, a dog attack and kill a squirrel and a boxer charge me while the owners just sat there.

We now stay at a private campground and have a much better time.

This can be a very interesting topic. Everyone camping with pets must realize not all campers enjoy our dogs as much as we do. Barking will occur however if others see that you are stopping it and teaching the dog to become a "good citizen" it goes a long way. Pet rules are put into place especially when they're tough probably initiated by issues they have had. Well mannered dogs will always be welcomed back. I know this from experience.. . We travel the east coast with 7 dogs staying multiple times at same campgrounds while attending dog shows or vacations. Our objective is to be remembered, not for how many we travel with, rather how well behaved and quiet they are that the neighbors never know they are there. Everyone needs to be a responsible dog owner to keep campground/RV resorts welcoming our "four legged" family.

apology

To Phil57 and any others I may have offended by my post, I do apologize. But the continued posts to this thread does show that some pet owners are not taking responsibility for their pets actions. We can not take our cat out of our RV without being traumatized by barking dogs and dogs running free or on 20' leashes. I have stepped into enough dog droppings and seen enough 100+ pound dogs leaping at people.

Enough said I will not say anymore on this subject.

You should have called the park rangers/police immediately!

We use state and national parks and forests all the time!
