irresponsible dog owners


currently in a cheap waterside camp in QLD where many vanners have their dogs. We have our small dog with us too and generally like dogs.

But have seen many examples of people not being responsible by letting their dogs roam through other peoples sites. Male dogs lifting their legs on other peoples tyres and belongings, dogs rushing out from their site when other dogs are being walked past on a leash. I don't care that your dog is "just being friendly" - my dog has a nervous disposition and rushing dogs upset her.

And the biggest issue is those dogs who wander from their own site do their 'business' else-where. The owners are unaware of where the dog droppings are so don't pick it up and dispose of it in an acceptable manner.

Come on dog owners , not everyone loves you pooch like you do. Just because there is no sign asking to keep your dog on a leash, do the right thing and keep you dog confined to your area.

Most of us dog owners are responsible, but like with everything there is always some wanker out there that has no regard for other people and other dog owners too

As Jamjar said; nearly all the large "Free Camps" were littered with dog (I hope) faeces. Surely the owners of these pets are aware that their animals are doing this - At least I hope they keep an eye on them when they are running around as there are a lot of 10/80 laced baits out there.

Maybe that's a good thing hey....gets rid of the dogs and therefore the irresponsible owners are no more....

 

BTW...I like dogs  but not all types...and I really dislike careless owners...just bloody oxygen thieves IMO.

I totally disagree with you Santa. Just as many irresponsible dog owners in cps as free camps. Just because a dog owner books into a cp they turn into angels????

Are you talking about dogs 'rushing out' when they are contained or simply left free around their van?

 Yep.  Said wankers are often the reason dogs get banned when they should be absolutely no problem if properly trained and looked after.

I love it when you walk past a van on the road or pathway provided and some mutt comes tearing out growling and trying to bite your leg off whilst their moronic owner yells out " Don't worry, he is just saying hello". I recall seeing this happen recently and the fellow being set upon put the slipper straight into the dog sending it flying. He then responded to the owner saying "Yeah. Same here" It is not the dog, just the cretins who can't or won"t control them.

We don't camp in c.van parks at all with our dogs, we freecamp mostly in out of the way areas, maybe miles from nowhere, it does annoy me a lot, when we are set up in a remote area with our dogs, and a "Scared" camper pulls up very close to us, and proceeds to deride us for having our dogs with us. "what Buddy, we are ,miles from bloody nowhere , their are 500 camping areas here and you camp 20 feet from us! get your own space!"
