Pet Friendly RV Parks
RVing with Pets
RVers enjoy traveling with their furry companions in pet friendly RV parks. Most pet owners are considerate of their fellow campers, but occasionally we run across a pet owner who is behaving badly.
We recently checked into a RV park in Mesa Arizona. It looked like a great camp spot with several trees and a little privacy on one side. We were just settling up when the neighbor started towards us. Expecting a friendly greeting which is a common socialize activity in most parks, imagine our surprise as the neighbor informed us that we had just setup camp in his dogs favorite urination spot. The park had a designated dog run, but it is all the way on the other end of the park. Owners are expected to walk their pet to the area and cleanup after them. Seems like common courtesy, but this particular owner thought he should be able to let his dog relieve itself in our camp area.
What a shame that this little pup who is an otherwise well mannered dog who doesn't bark, and isn't aggressive would have an owner with such inconsiderate behavior. We notified the management of the situation and encountered a backlash of negativity from our new neighbor.
Now instead of the prefect camp site we receive uncomfortable stares when we're outside, and whispers from the other side of trailer. The park won't offer any refund, so we either forfeit a months rent or we're stuck here. Like they say there are no bag dogs, only bad owners.
