Poll How many people have pets with them rving

All the conversations about barking dogs and problems with peoples pet make me wonder what the percentage of rvers have pets with them. In my travels, it would appear that a large number have dogs, and a very small percent have cats and other pets. Some have suggested the need for a pet free area of the campground, or perhaps a pet free campground. They have 55 plus campgrounds. Maybe a pet free campground is not that unrealistic. Obviously people with pets would not be going there. Just wondering how much of the rv population this would eliminate as potential customers to a campground. I personally don't currently have a pet, but almost all my travel companions do. You can do multiple votes, say if you have no pets and would stay at a pet free campground.

I could not imagine life without a dog in the family... Maybe a Pet Only RV park is called for...

My dog does not bark and does not annoy anyone else so i would hate to be excluded from a park simply because I have a pet.

We travel with our 6 pound maltipoo. The 120 pound German shepherd stays home. The little dog stays with us at all times. She doesn't run free or bark.

We travel with our dog every trip, but a pet free park no problem. I've refuse to stay in a park that charges a fee for pet, to many pet friendly ones out there.

I travel with three dogs, a 130 pound great Dane, 50 pound mutt, and 17 pound miniature Schnauzer. The most likely to bark is the Schnauzer. But, she is old and can't see well Most likely to draw kids, crowds and comments is the Dane.

Dog and Parrot are always with us. That is a large part of why we enjoy traveling in an RV.

17# cocker is family. He's useless, doesn't listen, eats anything and can swipe it off the counter, and has a lot of toys besides his mom and me.

Best dog ever. His only disposition is being Happy to Play. No barking, either, and he simply loves the world around him.

We have a little Chihuahua mix that goes camping with us. He loves to run freely and bark his head off while we're inside the camper. He's definitely a playful little thing in that he loves to nip at people's ankles as they walk down the road. He keeps other mean ole dogs away and marks his territory every chance he gets. His poops are tiny so we don't ever have to pick them up. Bicycles are definitely his favorite things to chase and he has fun biting at the tires of passing vehicles. What can I say, everyone loves his antics...

Kidding of course. He is a good little pooch that pretty much only barks when someone knocks on the door. Doesn't run loose at any time. Oh, and we do make sure to pick up after him.

If my dog can’t go camping with us for sure my wife will stay home with the dog.
