Honestly I'm not trying to be a dink here, but you seem to be hung up on the fact that it was not leashed like it never in a million years could happen if it was. Granted if it was leashed this event would've been less likely to occur, fair enough, but it still very possibly could've happened. Dogs like to sniff, especially untrained ones. I won't press the issue if you don't want to talk about it further but I was just genuinely curious of your reaction to the same event with a leashed dog.

Lets say 15 foot retractable, woman, not paying attention to the dog just strolling by and you happened to be in leash range. Same one that got you the first time.

Like the guy I posted about that kept coming around telling me the same story about waiting fir Old Faithful to blow. He apparently had no short-term memory. Finally got out a few pictures and even painted him one. Still didn't stop him.

Dogs, at best, have a mental age of approximately 2 -2.5 year old human. Would you allow 2 year old to wander campground on their own? Let them walk among many fascinating and tempting things (in their point of view) without holding their hand? No difference in allowing a dog walk unleashed in a campground or a neighborhood.

I really think we've thoroughly covered problems with dogs and even had demonstrated that some dog owners are clueless. What else bugs folks in campgrounds?
I agree, I don't allow my dogs to wander. They don't leave my site unless I do.

I can relate.
About 10 years ago, there was a fellow that would walk up, talk, and STAY. All he talked about was his 4 dogs. Their quirks. Diseases they had. Etc.

Walked to the camp restroom (we never use it) to get away. Followed me there. Talked while I was in the stall. Followed me back!

We hopped in the toad and left for a while. He came over as soon as we got back. Pretty much repeated the dog stuff. So we went in the MH.

Next day, same thing!

On the 3rd day, I told him 3 really lousy jokes. Several times. And I laughed heartily after each one. He looked at me like I had 3 heads and left for his camp.

Day 4, a new neighbor moved in next door. As he was setting up, I handed him a note with the jokes on it and clued him in.

I think I've mentioned it here before. Something similar happened at Yellowstone Park back in the 1970s. We stopped there for a few days rest on the month long trip. We just wanted to see the sights, lay around and in general "rest up." The family next to us were the most horrible campers I've yet to run across. No one else even came close. When they pulled in we could hear several people arguing and bickering, a dog barking and a baby screaming. It was a couple in their 30s with several children, a dog, a baby and two old people. Very old. Most likely grandparents. On top of the old man who was obviously senile, yelling something in a foreign language every few minutes, the couple fought constantly when they weren't yelling at their totally disobedient children. The children ignored them and kept whining and fighting among themselves. Grandma walked the constantly crying baby in circles in front of their rig, getting into the fray every so often. This continued almost unabated until we fled the next day...... fortunately, most of the time we boondocked and it was heavenly. This certainly wasn't the norm. These people apparently had some serious issues and it's sad they took those issues on the road with them.

They were probably oblivious to the fact they were making such a scene and ruining it for everyone else around them.

WOW,
I read all 28 pages
I'm new here, and agree that rules are rules...
Back in the 80's I lived out of an RV the whole motocross season, and in the 90's the roundy round season, I've seen campgrounds from MN to CA and a few in the eastern sector.
My dislikes are inconsiderate/assnine people who have forgotten the true golden rule... Treat others as you would like to be treated...Leave it as clean as you found it...Respect other peoples boundaries
I traveled with pit crews and a 245# brindle Mastiff Named Earthquake, He's long gone dead now, But people tended to not respect our boundaries, Children especially would run up and want to pet or climb on my LEASHED dog. (Thank god he was friendly and loved children and all the attention he got) Or climbing on the race car or bike. It was common place to find people standing on the trailer taking pix or kids in the car or on the bikes ( We couldn't afford and enclosed trailer)
We always asked to be put on the outskirts of camp since we usually had repairs or some unwinding to do and to avoid the masses and their children.
With that said I guess that sums up my pet peeves
Thanks for reading

A dog on a leash should NEVER be able to get within nose reach of anybody. If you're walking your overly-friendly dog near my RV, and it comes close enough to me, or my grandson, without my permission it WILL be kicked into the next campsite with no apology from me.

YOU may know your dog would never hurt anybody - I have no such knowledge, and I will protect myself and my family. A responsible owner would control their dog and make sure it was acceptable before they let their dog approach a stranger.

I always carry Bear Spray and will use if if I feel the least bit threatened by any unleashed or uncontrolled dog.

I agree 100%. My dogs are always controlled.

If your dog is not leashed it is not controlled.
