My wife and I have 3 Westies and they are the reason we purchased a MH for our travels. Most hotels won't accept pets and if they do they want $50-75 pet cleanup fees. My dogs are trained and and we have no problems with them on the road or at home. We walk them on a leash, pick up after them, and have had no complaints from our neighbors as to their barking. We have however had to move from one site to another on 2 different occasions because of unruly and unsupervised pets. Example, the guy ran a wire from tree to tree and then attached a retracable leash to the wire so the dog had 50' of freedom in all directions. After asking him 3 times to please keep the dog on his campsite and not under my steps and no actions from him and me tripping over the dog at the bottom of my steps, I moved. Now I know that I didn't call him "Bubba" and should have apologized for talking about his mother, but I didn't. I just moved.
I would not stay at a CG that would not allow me to leave my dogs.

My origianl point being....How many people take the time to read the campground rules and follow them? It does not make any difference if you're from California, Florida, Arkansas, Texas, New York, or where ever. As a responsible person you need to read and follow the rules. You will find all kinds of information about loud noise, trash, groud fires, washing vehicle, where to walk your dog, leaving your dog unattend for long periods of time at your camp site, keeping your camp site clean, cutting through other camp sites, fire wood, and more. Most likely they are there for a reason. I have found that most people only want to know, "Where's my camp site and what channels can I get".

On the other hand, I have found too, that campground owners fail to point out the rules when you register. It would be to their advantage to point out the rules and says, "Please read the rules because they are enforeced". That way everybody knows what the rules are, and if there is a problem action will be taken. If Bubba had read the rules like everyone else, there would not have been a problem.

I know of one man from Arkansas who borrowed $2,000 from his father-in-law and turned it into $80,000,000,000.00. He probably didn't like being called Bubba either.

most dog owners will almost always say one of the following:

#1 My dog don't bark; (the dog is barking now)
#1/2 My dog don't bite (he's got your leg in his mouth)
#2 I pick up after my dog (only when the owner thinks someones watching)
#3 I never leave my dog alone (when the owner has just got back after he's let the dog in the camper all day)
#4 I always put my dog on a 6 foot leash ( the owner has one of those U realys that let the dog out 20 or so feet so it can do it's business in your campsite)
#5 I always follow campground rules(yeh right, when I see pigs fly)

I think you folks get the idea, I could go on and on.
