Where we winter in Davenport, FL (Fawn Ridge) they have a 40# rule on a dog's weight, but no limit on number. I vote for a noise time limit of 5 minutes or owners take camper, dog(s) and leave.

DH and I take ONE pet with us...Fred the Wonder Dog. (long story behind that, vet says he's a four legged miracle...still chasing squirrels with total abandon after LSU Vet School gave him 2 days to live, *4.5* years ago.)

He took to camping like he'd been doing it since birth. Heck he's too lazy to bark. DH says he's a 4 legged commercial for valium. His joy of camping is going for walks every 10 minutes. He's always a kid magnet though, and I'm diligent about protecting him from the kids....approach SLOWLY, no more than one child at a time, don't touch his face and never put your face close to his, etc. He loves kids...I'm just very protective and cautious.

I've read threads here, and seen fellow campers, who have 3, 4 or 5 dogs camping with them. Our 5er isn't a huge honker, but it's not small either, and I can't imagine having more than one dog traveling/camping with us, and Fred isn't a big dog. Imagine a standard Doxy with an Irish Setter coat....22 lbs. on the dot every time the vet weighs him.

Oasis rv park, will remember that one. I bought 2 dog pens and put it up on our site for them to roam in. And they are only in it when we are outside, if we go in then they go in, leashes are a pain because they get tangled up and I think it causes barking because the dog feels restrained. You know I al m out wanted to ask if they had a limit on the number of screaming crying brats. Tell that site to get rid of one of the kids then there will be less noise.!, That is an absurd of a statement as 2 dogs will make less noise than 3. So we now are asking a friend if she will adopt one dog. We just got a chihuahua in Nov, a rescue and she is almost a year old now, the other 2 we have had for 4 years and have been together since birth and are also rescues. It kills us to have to give up a pet but I guess I should of really researched fulltime rving and pet regulations more than I did. At least she will be with a friend, have a good home with a woman who recently lost her husband and is looking for a nice small dog. I have an ROD membership and have a feeling the private resorts will need phone calls like some of you have mentioned. What I think is even dumber is that some parks say limit is for all pets, if you have and indoor cat and 2 dogs, to bad you are over limit, HOW NUTS IS THAT!!

Maybe go have a conversation with the manager of the campground or your sales person. Hopefully you can work something out! Talk a lot about not being told what the rule was.

We have two small dogs and I could never give either of them up. I'd be looking for a new campground. (this is just us, not trying to be a jerk).

Surely if you were military then you know the rules are the rules. Complaining about the rules isn't going to change them. At least not for the current camping year. Put something in their suggestion box or talk to the campground manager with a suggestion/feedback and maybe something could change for next year...you never know.

Look, I have kids and they would love to bring their friends, but many campsites have a maximum of 6 people per site and my family currently has 5. So I have to respect that and either take one friend one trip and another friend another, or simply just don't take any friends. There is no option to take them both at the same time if the campground has a max of 6 people. I'm not going to get upset about it (although, like in your case, it is inconvenient that I can't have just one more...) but that's their rules and when I visit their campground I have to abide by them. Or I can look for campgrounds with a higher max people per site.

At any rate, I hope you have plenty of luck finding the campsite you need. GO STEELERS!!!

Dogs and camping go hand in hand. Most of the folks I see at camp ground have at least one dog and some are great some not so much just like people. Our need some work but are just puppies. We have a trainer coming to help us work on manors. The will be better but for now people around us are great and help us with them. They are small dogs and bark a little.

Hello folks,


Can we keep the shooting banter out of this thread.
Thanks

ADDENDUM by wmtire: It was felt that the joking references towards harming fellow campers pets, could have the potential to be taken out of context in which they were meant.

The site team decided, for the sake of forum harmony, to go ahead and edit/delete the jokes out of this particular thread.

It's all good.

Yes I understand rules are rules which is why I drove an hour back towards home the next day to drop off a dog with my son instead of hiding her. And I do think that sometimes complaining and constructive discussion can make changes. Do I think it will ever change NO, which is why we are giving one of our dogs to a friend. But I do think campgrounds should should clearly state all pet rules on websites to avoid confusion or awkward situations when arriving. If the rules and regulations I was given stated a two dog limit I would never of adopted the third dog, and it took some digging to find others that clearly listed a limit on pets. And when full timing I am sure there will be times when making a call may not be available so you go off info on website. I guess my big thing is, what is the differance between 2 dogs or 3 dogs, one dog can cause as many problems as multiple dogs if the owners are not good owners. Even though it is an unanswerable question I would love to know how they came up with the number 2 as the limit instead of 1,3 or maybe 4. Someone before posted a suggestion I really like which is paying a fee for every pet over the limit, something realistic like $5 for every pet over limit. I would have no problem paying that fee, they do it for additional guests, so why not with pets?

Personally I don't care how many dogs you have camping with you as long as you clean up after them and they behave
