We have spent the last two winters at a RV resort in Yuma. For some reason, last year we had more snowbirds then the year before whom RV with 2-3 dogs (mostly small ones) but walk them (or shall I say, the dogs walk them) with extension dog leashes; and they failed to keep them on a shorter leash. The park does have a lengthy dog walk, but this occurred on the way to the dog walk.
One lady walked three daschunds at the same time and she let them urinate on the front part of my site and my front tire covers 3-4 times. Finally, I politely confronted her about it, and she did not say anything in response, but if looks could kill, well, I would not be posting this now.
Anyways, to make a long story longer, a few similar isolated instances occurred with single dog owners.
I'm not the type to run to park mgmt. over every little thing, so halfway through last season I bought Repel II Dog Repellant granules and spread them generously over the front of my site.
Result: No Problemo!
Works great in small areas, like the front of my back-in site.
BTW, I like dogs, don't own any.
Repel II available at Wal-Marts or Petco.

Ammonia in a squirt bottle works well as well.

Amazing thread.
I too, have had to ward off reasonably intelliegent dogs towing oblivious humans.
Spritzing diluted bleach water on the gravel at the front of the rig worked wonders. It breaks down in the sun, so one needs to spritz every other morning (or so) before the thundering herd of dog walkers hit.

Don't spray your tires. ohmy.gif
We were lucky in that we could park far enough to the back of our lot that dogs passed us by before they could get to the tires.

Their owners never had a clue.

We have just returned from a month long trip where we have stayed an numerous parks. Some up-scale resorts, some Mom & Pop over-nighters and lots in between. What I have noticed at a lot of parks these days are heavy handed rules and mostly relating to dogs. There was a time not so long ago when there were very few rules. Common sense prevailed and pretty much everyone got along.

I think we dog owning campers are creating an atmosphere of not being welcome anymore. We stayed at one park in Wilsonville Or. that, although they say they will allow pets, is so restricted that if you have a pet......don't bother staying there. This was the extreme but the tone seems to becoming more common.

I believe I am a responsible dog owner. We have travelled with a dog for over forty years now. We have always cleaned up after them. We do it at home and it's no different when we are away. We have a Miniature Poodle at present. I think they may be considered one of the yappyest breeds but she has been taught to stop barking. I won't say that she doesn't bark at all but she does stop on command. We know her schedule thus are "ready for her". When she has to go, we are usually in the designated area (if there is one).

I think that I am doing all the right things to minimize her affect on other campers but am I, and other pet owners, being "oblivious"? Or are there that may irresponsible people who have pets out there?

We worked at an RV Park this summer as camp hosts. it was close to ATV trails so the ONLY rule we has was no riding of 4 wheelers in the park except to and from trails. I told folks that we didn't have a lot of rules. Just the Golden one. That worked well.

Great idea..... on saying you have one main rule. I own a business and will be using this one. smile.gif
