It would be helpful if all parks had a designated area for pets and I understand others frustrations. We full-time and we were quite happy in our current spot for the last 5 weeks when another full-timer moved next to us from the other side of the park with 3 dogs that constantly bark.

We can tolerate general barking but when you have dogs barking every 20 mins because someone walks past with their dog, I think it is inconsiderate to others and it completely falls back on the owner and not the pet. Also park management should be more thoughtful when letting others pick their spots.

When you also have a toddler and they and can no longer play around your RV because of the fear of been bitten, their needs to be something done. I can tolerate alot, but I would hate to be the dog owner and the dog that ever attacks my toddler. This is why I feel more parks should consider pet only areas and in saying this, we love 99% of the owners and their pets and our young one enjoys meeting them.

RV spots are small enough and inconsiderate owners that travel with there circus need to be considerate of others, control their pets and clean up after them.

Are the people complaining about kids forgetting they where once a kid? Some common sense, consideration and patience from all, and MOST will enjoy there travels.

We have stayed in many campgrounds where they have a section for pets and a section for no pets. I have seen on some of the websites for campgrounds that they don't allow pets. I too don't care for the way some handle their pets.
We used to travel with 2 Jack Russell's and they did like to bark at people walking by. They would get put back in the RV because I don't want to listen to them so no one else should have to either.

On days when it was too hot for them to left in the car while we were out they stayed home in the RV with the TV on with cartoons. Children's voices seemed soothing. We asked the neighbors around if they barked or made noise while we were gone and they said only when we pulled in with the car. Sadly our 2 Jacks have passed on but we now have a Jack puppy that we will use the same method with and he is more people friendly as well.

Reading this thread and I'm laughing. When we were out earlier this year, we did not want to be the "bad dog owners" that is being talked about. Couldn't find the bark collar anywhere, so we went and bought a new one at Tractor Supply. Then, and only Then, did we find the other bark collar.

If your dog barks, put the collar on them. That's we did every time that we left the dog there alone. And even when we did take her with us, she wore the collar. More than one time we heard the happy sound, "Bark, bark, YIPE." Happy because we knew the collar was working. She was all too happy to get it off when we got back home. She would even give a a few licks.

Using the collar isn't cruel or unusual punishment. It is a tool for stopping the dog from barking. Its use should be considered so as to keep peace with your neighbors while camping as well. Just wish my next door neighbor would consider it as well here in the S&B. DW tells me to be quiet every time that I say something in the hopes that she (neighbor) is outside and hears me complaining.

I'd think that the 55 and over parks cover that reasonable well.

I just get frustrated sometimes with this site. I've been a member here since 2009, and was a lurker before that. In those days this site was a good place to find solid information from individuals with rich and deep knowledge. . . and they loved to share. Today it seems that every time I visit the site someone is complaining about something. To date I've read people complaining about:
  • Dogs
  • Kids
  • People who make noise
  • People that don't park their RV correctly
  • People don't connect their sewer correctly
  • People who don't dump correctly
  • People who don't connect their power correctly
. . . and my personal favorite;
  • People who take their family to a campground, and build a camp fire!!! OMG!!! What a flippin nightmare!!!!
I'm 58, and I suppose my complaining about the complainers means I'm on the fast track to becoming a "Grumpy Old Man" myself!

Complain on!

Yeah, what he said, what ever happened to the happy camper????

can`t make this stuff up

Barkies are the worst. The people that criticize the people that complain about them usually are the ones that have the Barkies and are afraid to tell the wife , the dog has to go, along with the baby stroller you carry it in.

Funny. . . my wife walked in last night while I was on the computer. The conversation went something like this:

WIFE: Hey, whatcha doing?

ME: Just seeing what the Grumpy Old Guys are complaining about today.

WIFE: Oh. . . you must be on IRV2 again!
