Campground restrictions vary but one rule seems to apply to all...no off-leash animals and clean up after your animals. Some have specified pet walk areas, some have actual dog runs.
What should you expect if you want to camp/travel with your dog(s)?
- Some parks restrict dog size by weight.
- Some parks restrict the number of dogs/pets.
- Some parks restrict specific breeds.
- Some parks restrict "aggressive" breeds.
- Some parks charge a pet fee.
Boxers are sometimes considered aggressive but more often the restrictions are on breeds like the Pit Bulls, Akita, German Shepherd, Doberman Pinscher and Rottweiler. The truth of the matter is that it depends much more on the owners and training than on the dog breed. I have met small dogs that were overly aggressive. But I am sure at some time we will get turned away, we will deal with it when it happens.
We are working hard on socializing and training Sadie. She already sits and comes, now we are working on stay. She enjoys people of all sizes and ages as well as dogs and cats. We are working on getting her used to riding on the motorcycle for our Route 66 trip next May.
We are really enjoying her puppiness and look forward to her outgrowing her puppiness. LOL!
We recently started a blog for pet owners, Toadily Pets, and hope you'll take a look and submit your pets for Featured Fridays, as well as submit any pet stories you'd like to see featured in the blog!
