We were at the beach last October and had our 18 yr old Schnoodle in a play pen next to our chairs. This woman came walking up and said "Ohhhhh how cute, can I pet your little dog". I said he's old and will bite; Even though he'd never bitten anyone before dogs will be dogs. I had no more said that when she said; "Oh he wouldn't hurt anyone." And then proceeded to reach into the pen and start petting him. Yep, he for some reason didn't like her and bit her. She jumped back in shock and I said "I told you." She just walked away. Can't fix stupid.

Our two are either inside or on a 6' leash. Will not stay at a CG without that rule. They have a fenced yard at home and are well behaved ~ even look forward to the leash. They will never be in your site and do not want to be intruded upon in ours.

All kids kept inside and on a leash while on a walk. A Pocket Beagle's nose operates their brain and gone with the sighting or scent of a bunny.👀/👃 (&#128048

Good. My little one may do the same at some point. The old one would never. Just talk to them in a calm voice and keep your hands to yourself.

Ours are together in a large crate outside or, when we are also outside with them, tethered to a tree or picnic bench. They are never unsecured or off leash while in the campground. It makes me very angry when other campers have an unsecured dog ... even if it is friendly. My rescued pitbull was abused and used as a "bait dog" in a fighting operation. He is friendly if introduced properly, but if unleashed dogs run up to him, he will assume they mean him harm and react accordingly. He has been attacked three times when he was on leash - by a golden retriever, a cattle dog, and a Wheaten terrier - each of whom was off-leash. I hate having to kick someone else's dog, but I will if I have to. In the altercation with the golden retriever, my husband was bitten. And of course, everyone wants to believe the pitbull is the aggressor. So if I see someone in a campground and their dog is not secured, I march right over and politely ask them to secure their dog.

On leash for walks. In pet fenced "yard" at the camper. We have two fences so it's a pretty big area, about 10 X 18. Zip tied to the bumper and the A frame tongue then stretched out square. We reinforce the fence with 4 ft rebar pounded in the ground every other section and zip tied. Green snow fence along the bottom of camper and behind the steps so they can't sneak under. They can go in and out at will when the door to the camper is open. We set up inside the fence so we all hang out together. Two 100+ Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs. They love it!!

My issue is simple with dogs roaming free. Owners cant clean up the land mines if they don't know their dog left one. That's the nicest way I can say it and also give the benefit of the doubt that all the dog owners clean up after their dog. People that don't own dogs, aren't looking for dog $h_t in their campsite. And that is the thing I take issue with regarding not tethering your animal. It shows complete disregard for everyone that is ultimately going to step in your dogs booby traps, lol.


This will be our first season with a dog (we got a Chihuahua back in Oct), so I was very curious to see the responses on this thread, and wanted to give a little perspective from a (former) non dog owner.

I have no problems restraining my dog at campsites. Either my Pug is inside asleep on the couch, or outside on my lap asleep 🐶

We have two little guys and my two little dogs should have no impact on the enjoyment of anyone else in the campground. They don't bark and they are on leashes when outside. When outside, we are always outside with them and they are always picked up after.

Wish people with kids used similar rules with their little ones.
