I don't care if you have a pet giraffe. But when it starts impacting my life something will change.
It's not the dogs, it's their lazy owners that won't spend any time training them.
I won't even get into the neighbor that drives around town with his dogs head out the car window and his butt in his face.

Sorry, how crazy. But your absolutely right. Owners do need to be responsible. If you can’t spend time with your pup and their care, then really consider what’s in the best interest For the dog. It might be a new home. I have been chased by pit bulls and bitten By far to many dogs at work. Again it’s these situations and lack of respect for others that lead to bad names for the dogs.

Awww Brent, "dog killer"?? I think your still stressed from all the doctor work

With all that dog "stuff" going on around you isn't there some legal recourse against these folks vs killing the animals? If one attacks you I would be having charges filed against the owner. Your description tells me of some folks that shouldn't even have dogs - and therein lies the problem for good dog owners and those that don't want to deal with dogs in general - the lazy "dog owners" that could care less about the animal or those they impact; they should be fined every day that their animals act out because they won't take care of them.

For most of my life I felt about dogs as you do; and still do to a degree. I'm just more in tune with dogs at this stage of my life vs my earlier years and understand the owner's shortcomings vs the animal's. Good luck on your dealings with all those folks.

We started taking Ol' Roscoe with us on our weekend trips last fall out of necessity. Previously, he stayed home with my mother-in-law who lives with us. But she had a medical scare and now stays with a friend or relative when we head for the lake.

My biggest worry the first time we took him was that he would be barking at everybody that walked by, wanting to take off after every squirrel he saw and raising cane every time a critter wandered in or around our campsite in the middle of the night. But to our surprise, he's very good.

When there are other campers around, I keep him on a 20-foot leash and he's happy as a clam. Last fall and early this year, we had several trips where we were the only ones in the campground. Those times, I didn't tie him up. He might wander around -- never out of eyesight -- but spends most of the time lying on the camp carpet sleeping or just watching the world go by. Mary thinks he likes camping more than we do. She might be right.

^^Danny you can bet I'll file charges. The best thing that happened to the bully dogs was about the 4th time I called the police, the chief showed up and about knocked their front door down. It got a lot quieter over there after that. Soon after they found both dogs dead, and I think they got rid of another one. I assume they got snake bit, the owners were oblivious, and the dogs didn't get any medical treatment.
My other neighbor works in oil services and is out of town a lot. I don't blame his wife for wanting a dog, but I think they over did it.
We have had dogs and I don't have anything against them. My son has 2 dogs that stay kenneled if he is not home. Both are fairly well trained. Sometimes with a steel toed boot, but they mind and there is no question that they are not the alpha dog in that pack.
My Dad was a coon dog field trial judge and we always had hunting dogs. But they did what he wanted or they weren't around very long.

Don't take the dog into stores. 20 yrs ago were in Boston doing the freedom trail with the kids and our miniature poodle at the time. It was after lunch (maybe 1:30) and see a deli down a side street. Take the kids inside to sit at the counter to get sandwiches. We were the only people inside. Wife and dog were waiting outside. Owner sees the dog, cuts up some meat and takes it outside with water for the dog. Next thing I know Coley is sitting with us at the counter. Owner brought him (and the wife) inside. Luckily there wasn't anyone else there including the health inspector.

We camped at a nearby state park last month. They have 2 off leash areas away from the camp sites. We walk the dog on leash to the nearest one, than off leash and play get the ball. Dog is a 100 lb 100% labrador. About half of the campers with dogs had them off leash at the sites both little and big dogs. Most ran over to us, lucky no fights. When our dog is outside the RV he is on a leash always. Last year at same park a bulldog with window open drove by while we were walking. That dog jumped out the open window maybe to fight but he was really disoriented after hitting the road and rolling and nearly run over by his owner.

It's already been said but there are good dog "parents" and not so good. I take my dogs just about everywhere that they are ALLOWED. If they aren't allowed they are in the truck, trailer, or home.
We get that not everyone wants our dog to meet them so they are on leash when around people. Off leash when away from camp, other dogs, and people. Getting dogs off the leash is one of the reasons we go camping.
As far as dogs and food, we take our dogs to brunch occasionally on an outdoor patio that allows dogs. They are on leash and lay next to us at the table. Not sniffing others plates or harassing other patrons or begging for food. So I guess I don't see the problem with having them at an outdoor food establishment where the management approves.

Curious if theres any part of this program that sounds offensive to others that have responded here. This big girl loves to make sure I'm taking my time on the forklift.

Personally, I'm with ya! And if my dog/puppy, for now is not disturbing or bothering anyone else, then I really don't care whether or not they approve of him being with us. And if it's bothering that person just because they don't approve of a dog being in an approved place......then I REALLY don't care. Get over it and move on with your life. Life's too short to get your undergarments twisted over something so inconsequential.

I get it that people want to take their pets with them anywhere they can. And I'm betting that not one of the people who've posted here, that take the care to restrain their dogs or don't take them where they should be, would have a problem if someone else said they weren't happy to have the dog around. These people are the responsible owners.
Unfortunately, there is a significant number of irresponsible owners who make life unpleasant for those who don't want the dogs near them AND the responsible dog owners. Again, it's a case of everyone suffers because of a few bad apples.
