Limit on number of pets

Just returned from week at campground in pa., a membership campground, and after setting up the manager came up and told us we were in violation of campground rules because he have 3 dogs and rules state only allowed to have 2. First i was completely shocked, he stated it was in the rules we signed when signing up and probably missed it. Well to his surprise i brought out the folder with all my papers signed and not one place did it said pets limited to 2. In fact the camp map that had rules and regulations on it just say pets on leash and not allowed in buildings. So he said since we were knew he would let us keep the 3 this weekend as long as we HID ONE. How absurd, well we didn't want to have a fight for the week and luckily my son was working in pittsburgh and he would watch one for us. So i made the over hour drive to drop off a dog.
Now my dilemma, my wife and I are going fulltime starting next month, and am wondering do we need to get rid of 1 dog? I looked at a bunch of sites and see some say limit 2 pets and some do not. But my member site did not say anything on website either so that is not reliable. We love our dogs they are small, not yappers and together the 3 weigh less than a big dog. Am wondering if others have experienced this and is it something we are going to run into a lot out there. I still think it is a stupid rule, there was a large dog a couple sites away that never shut up and was quite loud, that's OK but I am a problem because I have 3 small quiet dogs???????

campgrounds cant pick and choose who can have 1, 2 or 3 dogs. They have to pick a number and stick with it, regardless of the size and noise level of dogs. Some people don't want to camp around a bunch of dogs, just like some don't want to camp around a bunch of kids.

Yes, keep me away from the dogs. My son is allergic and has been to the hospital multiple times due to them at the grandparent's house at holiday times. Nothing personal.

I love dogs myself. Had to give up our Chow Chow.

My advice is to call ahead and get a name of the person you spoke with. That way you have it for backup in case someone tries to give you a hard time. And great job to you for having some quiet ones. I have a neighbor here who has them and they bark as soon as they go outside and won't stop until he lets them back in. And that's sometimes an hour or two later.

They do make those anti bark things you can buy. My neighbors barks all the time and I just walk out front, hit the button, and viola..quiet dog. it emitts a high pitch noise that only they can hear...and other animals of course.

When visiting our kids in Las Vegas we stay at the Oasis RV Resort. They have a separate section for pets and no pets. What a great concept. Those who want quiet and no pets stay in the no pet section and those who bring their pets stay in the pet section. Keeps everybody happy.

Near Glacier we stayed next to an old RV with 3 dogs inside who never quit barking and the owner nowhere to be found. I am quite certain that if 1 dog were removed it would it not have much better. We had to another spot.

I guess it depends on the dogs and more importantly the owners.

Read the animal rules and call ahead if possible.

I like that idea. If I'm ever out that way, I'm looking that place up.

I have seen a lot of private CG with restrictions on breeds, but not to many on how many you can have. That I remember. A lot of times if they are small they let you in even if the limit is 2. I think it was at a KOA the limit was 2 but I know one person had 3 but small lap dogs. It's best to call first and ask. They are all different.

I too have seen a few cg with a limit on the number if pets. I would call ahead of time and confirm on the pet limit, if any, and be sure to get the name of the person you spoke with.
