Well, there used to be a time when in the woods you had to worry about someone taking your hair.

We've also noticed how many people must always have dogs with them. It was especially annoying a couple years ago on Goat Island at the Falls. It seemed that everyone had a dog - sometimes 2. It was hard to stand at the overlooks without getting dogs and leashes tangled around our legs.

Do dogs enjoy attractions like the Falls? Don't want them to miss out on the scenery. [emoticon]

Dogs must enjoy new scenery because my buddy ran back to get his poodle from the car so it could see a barge going down the river. The dog had never seen one before!

As they say ,no bad dogs, just bad owners.

We go to the same RV park every summer here in Montana, and a lot of the same people every year we have become friends with. A couple from New Mexico we have known now for several years, and are friends with ,finally left their two dogs home . What a nice surprise [emoticon] One is a yellow Lab the other a little yipper. Two very unruly dogs. The lab they leash to the picnic table, and she drags it across the lawn , finally leashed it to their toy hauler . They bark all the time, ya nice not to see those two dogs.

It seems every year more ,and more dogs in the park here, and some with two or three.

Most national parks do not allow dogs on the trails. Many do not allow dogs to be left alone in the campgrounds. I like both rules and would like to see them in use everywhere.

I love dogs. We had dogs as kids. These were loving family pets. As an adult, I also had my own dogs.

While camping last week, I was surprised by the presence of dogs and their impact on the campground. We were are Merrill Campground at Eagle Lake.

Dogs like to protect their space, their owners, and the way they do that is go out to the full extent of their leash and bark.

What surprised me was the 2-3 (or more) dogs per campsite, and the constant barking followed by the owners "barking" at their dogs to hush them.

Merrill Campground is in the Lassen National Forest. Perhaps since most of my other camping experiences are in far less developed areas, I was just in for a little surprise with the pets.



Well, Gee Whiz!

Whoopee - or negative whoopee!

You'll be dog gone (hopefully)..[emoticon]

I think there is a good mix right now. I like to be able to walk trails with my dogs. I also get that not everone does. So I pick and choose my campgrounds accordingly - I don't think it's unreasonable for others to do so.

National forests allow dogs on the trails. So do most COE, BOR, and BLM campgrounds. Those are the places I go with my dogs. California state parks and National parks do not. So I leave those for the folks who prefer not to see my dogs on the trails.
