When talking ruddness, cutting through my camp site ranks highest with me. At one SP I was at, I had my beloved beagles tied on 10 ft leads at my sight. When children would cut through our site my beagles would sing as only they can do. The camp host asked us to leave. After explaining to the site superintentant that my dogs only bark when there space is being invaded by cutting through our site i was allowed to stay. however I kept my dogs inside the rest of our stay. The trip upset my wife very much because there were other dogs barking (lots of yeppers)but because our beagles have a voice it was us that was ask to leave. We havent been back to that park since.

I love to hear a beagle sing.

(As long as it is not after lights out.)

Right on willfish and Wayne! a singing beagle is music to my ears. I grew up hunting rabbits and raising the small, short-legged breed of beagles. They, for the most part, cannot run fast enough to catch a rabbit. Instead they push it just hard enough to make a circle back to where it came from, and where I'm waiting.

Beagle's singing is better than brats screaming

We are just back from our first ever RV snowbirding experience at a "55 & Better" resort in Desert Hot Springs. I am happy to say we never met as courteous and friendly group of campers or tourists of any type anywhere we have ever been. It was a rought first long RV trip for us, but our fellow campers were 100% delightful.
Wonder if them being about 60% Canadian had anything to do with it ;-)

Every Canadian I have met has been nice, both here and in Canada. They are good neighbors.

Can your husky teach my husky how to howl? On command of course.

Paybacks are sometimes nice.

I'm sure she would give it a try. She taught my Lab to almost howl. It's extremely funny to watch max will stand tall and stretch his neck the bark he's gotten better and not it sounds like a drawn out baaarrrrk not quite the melody Molly has.

Hiya,
you are sooo right about the change in 'campers manners'; I checked people into a National Forest campground for a few years & back then I could see the rapid decline in attitude, sad.
ahh-had plenty-o-time 'round a campfire & many friends to ponder it & we came up with this one, I forget where we originally found it~ but to our surprise after we posted it on a couple of our rigs, some/ no- most of the tresspass & too noisey banter...stopped...go figure ?


That said, those days are long behind.
We are very lucky in finding an RV community that seems to have those 'old-school' standards incorporated into our charter & membership agreements-our park is great !
(We're @ Port Susan in the Pacific NW.)

Purely a matter of individual opinion - and one usually only held by owners of hounds!

Personally, I rate them both equally disgusting and intrusive to all within earshot - and our neighbors here have a hound that they must also figure is of the "musical" variety, since they so considerately leave it out to "serenade" the neighborhood for hours on end while THEY are all away at work and school...

No doubt about it - the yelping and baying kids and dogs can equally and seriously erode the camping/RVing experience of all surrounding occupants - and also equally display the lack of common courtesy and consideration of their parents and owners...

Gary Talk to the other neighbors and record the howling . Then when the owners get home set up some speakers and serenade them all night.Maybe they will get the message.

Actually, I was going to do exactly that as far as the recording is considered - but recently, the couple split up and the future of the house and dogs was in question, and being winter, no dogs outside - we'll wait and see what Spring brings, since the couple seems to have at least for now patched up their problems.

Let's face the facts as far as CG/resort users and kids and dogs are concerned:

1. Most responding in threads like this WITH kids and dogs, will SWEAR that THEY are perfect parents and pet owners - and on those "rare" occasions when their kids/dogs stray from perfection, it should just be accepted or ignored by those around them. They will also swear that THEIR kids and dogs are perfectly quiet, and that they "religiously" attend their dogs, and dutifully and unfailingly pick up after their messes.

2. Further, even AS they admit deliberately disregarding and breaking CG/resort rules concerning leaving pets unattended as they freely wander off for indefinite periods taking in the sights and attractions of the local or distant area, THEIR pets are "quiet as Saints", and NEVER any problem to other campers - so they are fully excused from abiding by park rules...

3. Any time any of the above proves to NOT be true, it's only those excessively critical folk who lack patience and understanding - and are "miserable old grouches" who are "just LOOKING for things to gripe about" who will complain.

Fact is, some folks like to RV camp to unwind, turn up the tunes while having a 6-pack of brew, get the kids and dogs out from under THEIR feet, and just let it all hang out - while others go RV camping in order to enjoy the peace and quiet, free FROM the racket of the neighbor's kids and pets back home as they enjoy nature at it's best...

And, inevitably, as long as BOTH groups exist, they will both also inevitably end up in adjoining campsites!

And the resulting controversy will NEVER end!
