Hi all,

I've been quietly reading the forum for about 18 months now. I am impressed by the care and passion which people offer their insights. My first forum topic is simple, but important.

What do you feel the policy on pets in a park should be? I'm talking to lovers, haters, and everyone in between. Let's just go ahead and say that pets are allowed. Since they are allowed, what are policies you'd like to see implemented? What are some of the best ones you've seen around North America? Think about pets outside, pets inside, cleaning up waste, proximity to other campers, specific species that should be disallowed, etc.

I prefer fair and reasoned responses. I see a lot of passion for pets across the spectrum, but I haven't seen a specific topic that addresses policies. So, if you were writing the policy, what would it include?

Thanks for your insights...Roll Tide. biggrin.gif

I have no pets......they don't fit my lifestyle and I am admittedly too lazy to change my lifestyle. On the other hand, I love dogs....other people's dogs, to be specific. All I ask of dog owners in RV parks (and in my neighborhood when I'm home) is that they pick up after their dogs and, if their dogs bark an excessive amount (and "excessive" is relative to whether I am trying to sleep or relax), that they do something about it. I don't poop outside your door, I don't pee on your tires, I don't bark at nothing for hours; I ask the same of your dogs.

I would like to see RV parks enforce whatever rules they have, be it about picking up after dogs or leaving dogs to bark or dogs being off leash. But whatever the rules are....ENFORCE THEM!!!

I was in one park in Oregon where they ejected our new next-door neighbors only a few hours after they got there because of their barking dogs. There was another park in Arizona where a "bounty" was offered to rat out your neighbors for not picking up after dogs. I have been in parks where apparently the "rules" only applied to transients, not seasonals or perms or the owner's dogs. I've been in parks where *I* could have pooped in front of the office or howled at the moon and nobody would care. I've been in parks where there weren't a lot of rules, but "common sense" seemed to prevail.
