I find that most owners are great about picking up the poo at campgrounds. Where I have a complaint is at rest areas or hotels. It seems that if the owner of the dog isn't going to be back they leave it. We have to small dogs and keep a supply of bags connected to the leash.

I have to say as the OP I am over whelmed at how many responses there are. I originally posted just to get it off my chest and I see many must feel the same way! The great thing is that I now have a list of things to not do.

Don't cut through sites.
Pick up dog stuff.
Hurry up at the dump station.
Stay off my non-existant golf cart.
Keep my 20 year old kids quiet...better yet leave them at home!
Don't use an impact driver on jacks (but I think a regular cordless drill is fine).
Keep the music down. (Does that include playing my guitar quietly?)
No glaring at others.
Wave and say hello.
Don't use lighter fluid on fires (I am in big trouble)

I think those are the big ones!

One more (after what happened a few days ago)

When at the pool - Get off your phone, iPad, kindle, pc, whatever your nose is buried in and control that 15/16/17 year old of yours who is harassing my granddaughter (16) to the point she is in tears! It's not my job to teach your son/grandson how to respect young ladies! Be thankful all I did was report him and you to office staff and not call police!!

Pet peeve

I can't stand "those dogs", the dogs that bark at every single thing they see!!! And then, better then that, is the people hollering at "those dogs"

I know what you mean. You walk past, the dog barks, the owner yells for the dog to stop barking... louder than the dogs barking, when the owner got the dog in the first place to alert him when people come to close to the house/RV/yard....The dog is only doing it's job....

That reminds me of a joke I posted the other day in the joke forum:

Yelling at a dog to stop barking doesn't work. The dog probably just thinks,

"Awesome, now we're both barking."

I've found with my dog that a small spray bottle filled with water works better than yelling.

Yelling doesn't work. Our dog trainer said it was just confirming the barking. We tried a Spray bottles air cans vibrating collars. Now we just use earplugs. They seem to work the best.
