I wish I knew when some of these people were camping next to me. Each bag containing poop would be left on the step of their rig. Every time they step out, and ironically into the bag, I'd smile a greet them "look I cleaned up after my dogs again!"

You're complaint on this forum probably won't reach the people that need to hear it, they can't read.
When stepping on a cigarette butt you do not get crap on your shoe, and it doesn't smell like s--t. When you step in a pile of dog poop your have a mess on your shoe and it smells like s--t, because it is.
Dog and human feces is a toxic waste and should be treated as such! How much toxic waste, dog feces, dumped into our landfills daily? Cannot dump human feces there, but animal, pet, feces is OK????
Houston, we have a problem.

Do you honestly think that all the droppings from planet earth's wildlife go through sewage treatment plants? Ditto cattle, sheep, goats, horses and other agricultural animals on free range. Where do these droppings wind up? Having grown up on a cattle ranch, my guess is lying on the ground until they decompose. You really don't want to know what farmers do with the animal waste from corrals, barns, etc. - have you heard of a manure spreader?

Rusty, farm animal poo is not dangerous compared to dog poo. Dogs are carnivorous therefore huge bacteria problem, it's dangerous. You might wanna google that before coming to conclusions. Also does your dog lick your face or give you kisses ? Just trying to decide if I saw you in a campground.

Try that "No Pets" campground I suggested. Then you won't have to worry about me and my Shelties being anywhere around you. That'll make us both happy, right???

We're getting WAY too personal here folks. Please tone it down and stay on topic.

Thanks for your help.

Where we live, lots of folks have horses and you have to watch for horse poo in the road....Dog poo is minor.

But I grew up in the country and you learn to walk around it if you don't want to step in it.

We eat food that has been fiterlized with cattle waste every day;
Question?
Would we eat that same food if we knew the farmer got his firtilizer at the dog pound and the firtilizer was made from dog poo?. I think not.

So what is your point? Now it is not the poop that offends you, it is their licking???

I believe statistics show that a large majority of households own pets, and that is reflected in the large percentage of RVers who travel with their pets. If you are one of the small percentage that are irritated by the pets and/or their owners, that is why the campground guides note whether they allow pets or NOT.

It is ridiculous to suppose that the few of you offended by the pets will be able to somehow eliminate the MILLIONS of beloved pets that travel with their "families". So either go to a NO PETS campground - or pick a site far away from the dog walk and play area. If you are on the other side of the CG, I would think that would eliminate most of the pet traffic.

And by the way, MANY animals are carnivorous, and their poo is not dangerous and composts very well in the wild. Many poorer nations still use human waste to fertilize crops with no ill effects! Good book on the subject . . . "Holy Sh#t!" by Gene Logsden. LOL!

I'll have to watch for you in the campgrounds when I start traveling - I don't think my dog would like to stay near you.
