I had never considered "STARBUCKS PIGS leave their empties on the meat counters, complete with Lip Stick, and who knows what else" with male dogs who "mark their territory" but you know, in some ways, that's what it seems their doing: It's me and I'm entitled".... So they leave their trash for "someone else to clean up"....

Not all (by any means) but far too many, do the same with their dog droppings (minus the lipstick on most).... When it becomes an obstacle course to take a grandkid to the playground, "doggy owners" have overstepped their welcome.

Yes, I own a dog, 60 pounds of "bird hunting genius" and yes we take him camping with us. You'd never know he's in the trailer, and most people walking by don't even see him sitting under my lawn chair, but bet your bottom dollar, he's watching them..... As for his "droppings", we have a "doggy bag dispenser" that we hang on his leash so we're prepared to pick up anything he might dispose of on our walks.

At $15 for 1000 bags, it will last longer than our camping season: https://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-...DC86TXYPBN9PFE

Good point! Anyone that owns a dog and takes it to a public area needs to do what you describe; put the doggy bag dispenser on the leash (that the dog should be on at all times when out and about) and use it ANY time there are droppings.

When we are camping it's generally a give away that the folks don't usually pick up after their dogs if they don't have one. Some stick a bag in their pocket, or.....just don't take one - unacceptable.

Where we winter we have several friends with dogs and we all carry our little bag "dispensers". We also watch those that don't carry them, or bring back a little bag of "treasure". Some of the folks talk to/confront them, our friend from MI that stays next to us picks it up and puts it on their steps and I will either say something, or if it's late I'll take a flag and put it by the pile and direct the owner to it the next day.

There are rules pertaining to the removal of the droppings in literally every park I've ever been in. And, as John said, it is ridiculous when it gets to the point that you, the kids or grandkids have to walk around like you're trying to negotiate a mine field. As I've told folks, and the owner of that particular park has as well; if you can't clean up after the pet, they don't belong there - don't bring them. To me it's the ultimate in rudeness and inconsideration to leave the "stuff". Lot's of dogs leave lots of stuff; lots of stuff equals lots of stinky, nasty shoes and lots of aggravated folks.

Some of y'all might get away with taking one bag with you when you walk your pal, but our doxie will fool you in a minute. He'll drop a prize in three different places as soon as he finds out you only have one bag.
One other thing I might mention. If any of you think that dogs and cats aren't all that big of a deal in the RV world, just walk into any Camping World. You will find that 15% to 20% of the retail floor space is devoted to pet supplies.
Straight "scoop."

Wow! So ours isn't the only one that can count how many bags are in the dispenser! How do they know that??

My sister has a pet snake.
I'm considering it.
But the leash?

It could be my "therapy snake". Help myself and others get over their snake phobia.
Leash? Maybe a mouth piercing with kinda like a hog nose ring.
Thinking out loud here.....
Here, you can feed him this mouse. Oh that makes you uncomfortable too eh?

JRTJH - I have actually walked up to someone and given them a bag off of my dispenser on my leash and said - "Oh - I see you don't have a bag, here, now you can clean up after your dog - over there." I get some snarls but they usually will pick it up. I get mad when people let their children walk the dog and not pick up the mess. If you walk the dog you should be able to clean up after it.
