It's a lot different. When you're at a campground you have people closer than "back home" while someone is at work, and most times they're outside. An RV is about as soundproof as toilet paper, I don't care what type, brand, or model. When dogs are left alone they typically bark at every noise they hear outside. Some might not but most do including everyone I have ever had, which is several. Sure our Spot never barks, he's perfectly behaved lol. To me it's just flat out ignorant to do so. Although I have never witnessed anyone being booted out of a campground, I have seen folks warned about it more than once. I have also been in campgrounds where folks have left their barking dogs there all day alone, and I have sat and listened to them way too many times to keep track of.

You're 100% spot on they're the responsible party. I have never been to a public campground that did not have a rule that was worded something to the effect of "Pets may not create a disturbance or nuisance. Excessive barking is a disturbance" or something along the lines that you can not disturb other campers.

One that comes to mind is in PA state parks, VA has something similar. "Pets must not be left unattended, except when using a restroom or visiting a park building for a brief period of time. When doing so, the pet must be kept in a camping unit or vehicle, weather conditions permitting."

The emphasis is "brief period of time while using restroom or visiting a park building".

To me it falls under camping etiquette, something that is going by the wayside.

we have a Lhasa Apso. For half days, we take him or leave him in the rv, depending on where/what we're going to do.
for all day...6/7 hours, we take him along and leave him in the car with windows cracked a bit...IF it is COOL outside and we can find a shade tree. But we don't take long hikes, etc....too old and creaky for that.
The bottom line is; when you get a dog or cat, you should expect a few lifestyle changes. Or, you can find a good local kennel at home and leave them there.

My ex and I back packed into the SW entrance of Yellowstone back in the 70's for 2 nights with our little dog. She ended up hearing things in the night and I think almost got us eaten by a bear. The last day Rangers road in on horseback ( only humans we saw ). They were not amused with the dog growling at their horses. Took my DL and told me to come get it when we got out of the trail. They sat me down for a long talk, told me about the possible fines and then let me go. Young and dumb but memories!

OP: You started off on the wrong foot by disparaging the Pet forum and then got snotty with other members. I've deleted your unkind posts and will reopen the the thread again for now.

Please play nice to keep the thread open.

For the record, I felt the need to qualify why I wasn’t posting this thread in the Pets forum because I fully expected to be attacked for posting “off topic” in this forum.

While I’ve been a member of rv.net since 2001, I don’t spend much time on it much anymore since it’s become a tough place in the last few years (as you can see from some of the posts in this thread). I’ve preferred to contribute regularly on other sites.

Thanks for cleaning up this thread, Moderator, I appreciate your commitment to making rv.net a more welcoming place.

While it may seem like a particular forum is dead, most of us hit the "Newest" button at the top of the screen so we see any new thread that is posted, no matter what sub forum it's in.

We don't travel with pets but I recall some posts regarding private parks in West Yellowstone having dog tending services due to the particularly long-visit nature of Yellowstone Park.

You can check the parks for kennels too. We used the one at south rim of Grand Canyon. Wasn’t overly expensive for the day and were happy with the conditions at least when we used it
