I think Jake would feel he was being punished if I staked him to a spot. He sits with me and when we walk I use a expandable leash He is never out by himself, where I camp a good share of the time, I'm afraid of something eating him.

We always have our dogs on leashes that are about 10 feet long. We attach them to the trailer. We never leave them outside alone. We camp in many NFS campgrounds out west. It is not uncommon to have a coyote or even a bear walk by the campsite. Our little bichons would make them a nice snack.

We've had camp hosts stop and tell us the dog needs to be on a leash or other restraint. Seems to me if the dog is laying on the ground when someone walks up, logic says there won't be an issue. Just wondering if the campground nazi's are increasing across the country...?
. With a big stock . lol

Our 3 dogs are always on leash or tether when out except for the arthritic 15yr old unless we are taking him out of the campsite for a walk, he falls when trying to get up and has no depth perception we carry him up and down steps. He used to chase the squirrels and just about everything else, now we are prepared for the day he barks at angels.

If breaking the rules upset you I will understand but be sure you are following all of them. The CG police will gladly check for all items not allowed in or on private and government grounds.

Is it written black and white or are there some gray or variance(common sense?)with these items.

It won't be deadly, but I sure bet it fills up the britches.



Just report them to the hosts. What are they going to do, come over and yell at you?

Snakes don't worry me it's the kind that have two feet.

Sorry to here about your dog. But everyone is at risk with a loose dog including the dog.
As someone pointed out about rattle snakes, bears, coyotes, and mountain lions.
Why risk your dogs life!!! It's not about how well your dog is trained. It's how you can help or care for your dogs life.

OK, the site team has had to do some cleanup here, with posts that are just inviting an argument and disrupting forum harmony. As history has shown several times with previous threads similar to this one, this subject can easily become a flashpoint, as pets are important parts of a family. We won't allow posts that could be construed as abusing fur kids no more than we would allow those abusing flesh kids.

This thread has seem to have run it's course and hopefully the OP has received an adequate answer to their question. We want to thank everyone for participating and aiding in this one. However, this being a "flashpoint" subject, we think it may be time to go ahead and close it to new posts.
