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 agree with jamarynn1. Most pet friendly parks do have adequate rules in place for pet/pet owner behavior. The key is enforcement, as stated.

One rule I am seeing in a few parks now, that I would like to see expanded to all, is a restriction on using those long retractable leashes when there's a 5 or 6 foot leash rule in place.

Given that parks apparently have enough trouble getting people to pick up after their pets or get them to use any kind of leash, do you really think they could enforce a 5 foot leash rule without upsetting the multitudes of pet owners who use retractable leashes? And how long would be before we got a post slamming the money grabbing RV park that said a guest's retractable leash was unsuitable, but they had 5 footers for sale in the camp store?

I've seen at least one rule that does allow the use of the extendable leashes, but restricts extending them more than the 5 or 6 feet stated for all leashes. Sure its tougher to enforce that, but in at least some parks, there are various staff members out and about in golf carts at all hours, doing maintenance, providing security, etc., who could speak up as needed. As with all the rules, consistent enforcement is the key.

A park that controlled probably needs to have it's name changed from Paradise State Park to Paradise State Prison. I really don't need the commandant and their henchmen measuring the length of my dog's leash. Might work for some, but over the top for me.

Well, if you don't want the rules enforced, then all I can say is watch where you step...
