We wish more parks had a strict "No Pet Policy". My wife is allergic to both dogs and cats so we have no pets and don't wish to be bothered by other peoples pets. Our family has been RVing for over 50 years and when we owned a dog and went camping our very well trained dog(s) went to the kennels where it belonged. Many people now days feel their damn mutt has more rights than people, such as being able to ignore leash regulations, nonsense. It also appears most of these "pampered pooches" have not had proper training which just exacerbates the problem. Oh, and let's not forget to mention the bozos who feel it is beneath them to pick up their animals deposits. Maybe it is time to equate non-pet owners rights with non-smokers rights. Remember, there was a time when non-smokers had no rights.

It always amazes me the number of people who complain about various things while they travel. It appears that nothing makes them happy outside the confines of their own home. In my 30 years of traveling we have done so with and without pets, with and without children. By far I was happier when I was with my pets and children at the same time. We even have a pet stroller for the 2 mini dachshunds so we can go to craft shows etc. We own a 5th wheel (to have enough room for 3 dogs) and quiete frankly have more complaints about restrictions on where I can walk my dogs....we never leave them unattended to go to attractions etc. We reprimand our dogs if they bark, pick up after them and yes wonder why some owners leave their pets unattended in parks, don't pick up after them. It gives a bad name for the rest of us. We now own a 7 month Golden Retriever.......all three dogs just love camping. Sitting outside and watching what is going on in the park. We are always out walking our dogs and really enjoy the people we stop and talk with......thank you to those individuals who make our day. As for those who just frankly complain about any noise....camping is probably not for you as just being outdooors is such a joy....the beauty and the sounds of nature etc. Many times we get to a park and wonder about the people who come to camp but never get out of there MH or FifthWheel....why do you camp? You need to get out and socialize....that is what life is all about. But to those individuals who have bad mannered pets and might I also say bad mannered children....or the root of the problem bad mannered parents.....I too wish you'd stay home. Between not picking up after your pets or your children stuffing the toilets with paper or throwing garbage around....it is your job to watch and take care of not the parks.
