Try leaving it in the un-locked mode. It takes up the slack you walk over. I never get tangled up with it that way.

This is a 15 foot leash that can be wound up to 6 feet; it's not a 6 foot leash.
Reelly, what kind of wine do you want with that whine? I always "real" Sadie in if I'm near other people and let her spool the "real" out in any open areas. Sometimes, I have to tighten the drag so she doesn't get that sudden stop.

We live across the street from a lake with a walking/running path that is used almost 24/7. It amazes us how many people let their dogs poop right on the concrete path and don't clean it up!!! Never mind letting them go on the grass and leaving it. I must say we've not encountered that many irresponsible people in our camping travels. For the most part, I think campers are a considerate group. There are always going to be a few bad apples in the bunch.....

Well it's real easy to cure and get the owners.
I carry a pocket digital with me take a picture when you see a dog off leash along with owner. Go back to mh, print all pictures along also with their vehicle lic. Call local Leo, hand all pics and file formal complaint. The owner will get the fine and they aren't cheap. With confronted with ticket and pic all they can do is pay. Locals love it no court expense and pays off like a slot machine. Works as well for failure to pick-up

I always carry extra bags not to give to anyone else but so I can pick up after other dogs. I pick up as much for others as I do my own. It isn't a big thing.

I carry a bat for the dogs that are off leash. I and my dog have been attached twice by dogs that the owner said will not go after you. I like the idea of a camera and think I will begin to carry one.

Those that use the 15 foot urealy sure have been quiet. have they realized that its not a 6 foot leash?
I realy hate those things; they will give the dog the full length; to run up in your site and do there business. If no one is looking they just keep on going. ask me how I know.
I don't dislike dogs, just the uncarring owners.

We have/travel with two retired/rescued greyhounds and one ornery weiner dog. I ALWAYS pick up after all three of them. I also have 3 X-pens that I use to prevent an unwanted escape of the greys. I attach the end of a pen on each side of the door and this prevents unwanted escapes and also prevents a loose dog from coming into my sight and starting a fight with one of my greys. Greys are not fighters, have very thin skin and could really get hurt if attacked by a loose dog.

I can't stand folks that just "magically" never see their dog poop and continue walking.

I hold these truths to be self evident -

1 - People eat, therefore, people poop. They seem to know where to go.

2 - Pets eat, therefore, pets poop. Some people seem to not know what to do in this situation. This is NOT rocket science.

3 - IF you own a pet carry the equipment to deal with the problem ALWAYS.

4 - It is real simple, UNLESS you are "REAL SIMPLE".

5 - SOME pet owners are "REAL SIMPLE"

6 - It is very hard to fix STUPID.

7 - not all pet owners are stupid - but some are.

8 - This has been an ongoing problem for years, and will likely carry on.

9 - see rule 6.

10 - If you are a good pet owner you will pick up after your pet, if not - try to handle STUPID and have a good day.

I look at it this way...I don't like to step in dog doo... So I pick up after my pooches, since I don't want to step in the stuff and don't think any one else does either. Those dog bag dispensers that attach to the leash are great. I have what I need to do the job. Yes I sometimes look funny carrying my little pink packages to the garbage but it's ok I won't have to worry about stepping in some unwanted stuff. As for leashes, if I didn't keep my two on leashes I would have to play "come chase me mommy" with two dogs going in two directions and they run faster than me so mine are always leashed, even when they are in the ex pen.

Answered questions in order:

#2 never did that ( had a dog; died of old age)
#3 none of the above; my dog stayed in a kennel when we were camping.

From your comments on this and numerous other dog-related threads, I'm assuming your true underlying position is that pets shouldn't be allowed in campgrounds and have no place in the RVing world. Would that be accurate?
