Just do not forget that at some point they need to cut the grass. I would think that you would be responsible to take it down when they are going to cut the grass. For this reason I would suggest asking the CG manager about it even while making a reservation.

We use our fence on all our trips with the dogs. We have yet for someone to say something. We have two well behaved beagles, and they love to camp. The fence helps us when we both are busy and keeps us from getting tangled in the dog lines.

Fencing pets at campgrounds

The beauty of camping is the fact that you can bring your pets and be in your own pleasantsurroundings. I despise hotels and motels. Our bassets travel really well. We are trying to train Daisy not to bark.....we were using the citronella spray bark collar and it worked for a while. Now she just laughs at us and barks. She has had 2 previous owners and they got fed up with her because of her chewing. We've had her since Nov. and now she's almost 2 yrs. old. We'll get everything under control before our next trip which is to MI in Sept.

This may not be a popular opinion, but our training shock collar has done wonders for our dog. She was a little crazy when we brought her home from the SPCA. Her foster owner started her training but she was much like young Luke Skywalker rushing off to face Vader before he was ready. More training did she require. The shock collar can be adjusted to a little zap or a big zap, momentary or continuous, and it has made a huge difference in curbing unwanted behaviors. It'll work for barking, jumping, chewing, and overall not listening situations. I rarely have to even use it now, but when I put it on her and she sees that I have the controller, she listens WAY better. I was worried that it would somehow make her less affectionate or standoffish, but, if anything, she's calmer and more cuddly than she was before. And pit bulls are cuddly, despite the image. Good luck!

I know what you mean about not popular, but we too are on the edge of making this decision, she is like a hyper active child. Gone through 2 cell phones and she got the third one when it fell out of my pocket unknowingly. It's got her trade marks on it but it still works. Anyway I was thinking of the shock bark collar. But maybe we need the training one.

We would set our fencing up on the patio and walk them for their potty time.

We have a 16 month old mixed breed (mostly Jack Russell) that liked to bark and we got an automatic bark collar and it stops all the nonsense. First time she wore it, she was chewing a nylon bone and decided to bark, the collar shocked her and she yelped and ran from the bone. Wouldn't go near it the rest of the day. It was hilarious. Now, the minute we put the collar on her, she is a totally different dog.

Nothing is more annoying than a barking dog in a campground or camper. especially with the owners sitting there or worse leaving a yapping, barking dog in a camper and leave for the day.

My daughter uses the bark collar on her 2yr old Bassett hound... Works when wears it... Knows he can go back to barking when it's off. Amazing how quickly they learn!
