Thought this odd enough to post:
Will RV parks follow Apartment Complexes ?

Very few dogs left behind are a barking problem, and those are normally yappers that sit on the dashboard and bark out the big front window on a motorhome. Take your dogs and enjoy your travels. Be a responsible pet caretaker and you will have no problems. Good luck to you.
In my 40+years of camping with a dog I agree!

Agree also, have had an RV since 1964 and these ranged from small to large TTs, class C's, 2 A's and now a B+.

We have had several dogs and took them all camping. (Only owned one at a time) Each had its own personality, were all part of the family, were well trained, well behaved and never had one complaint about any of our dogs or our kids for that matter. All had to follow good neighbor rules and did,

We would never allow any animal to cause fellow campers any concern. Currently have an 8 year old Shih Tzu. He is not a yappy one. In fact he hardly ever barks but he is spoiled. Thinks he owns our bed and my DW's lap and if he just sees the RV moved out of the garage he starts to whine and whimper a bit at the window until I let him go out to get in the RV. He loves to travel and never disrupts our neighbors. He wimpers when he sees another dog, squirrel, cat or kids outside the RV but no barking. We never allow him to roam off our lot, deficate or pee where it is not appropriate and always pick up any deposits.

We often leave him unattended in the RV (never outside) with appropriate environmental controlled systems on, and from all reports he has never bothered anyone.

I suspect most of the folks on this forum have seen very irresponsible dog owners in campgrounds and I wish there was an easy way to quickly have them change thier ways or leave the campground. Have not found that easy way yet and I have gone to management many times asking for corrective action. Have found this seldom works so we change sites or leave if the situation becomes unbearable.

Wondered what others do when they encounter neighbor dog problems, which is really a people problem.
