Thier suggestion, also if I register them as comfort dogs , others may do the same.
Misrepresenting the nature of the dogs will probably not help matters. It may in fact make it more difficult for people who have actual service dogs. http://pleasedontpetme.com/differences.php
And why please tell me I am misrepresenting them, I have heart problems and they comfort me and keep mine and hubbys blood pressure down. I didn't say SERVICE dogs I said comfort dogs.. theres a big difference.
Unless you HAVE experience with certain rv parks n pets PLEASE DON'T COMMENT!
Thanks to the rest for your kind replies.I haven't posted in these forums for a while, and I will be signing off as soon as I finish this post, but the guy wants real world experience, so here it is.
1. NO WAY would we allow eight dogs. We have a two dog limit and make multiple exceptions yearly, but eight is too many.
2. Lie about the number of dogs and that will get you a ticket out. At my parks, asking permission is much better than expecting forgiveness. I have zero tolerance for people attempting to circumvent my policies by telling lies.
3. Implying that your dogs are potentially covered by ADA laws, thus frightening un-informed owners and managers into accepting your dogs when they otherwise would not is beyond reprehensible. There are people who require Service Animals and trading off their unfortunate circumstances for personal gain is on par with conning the blind by telling them a five dollar bill is really a twenty or stealing a wheelchair bound woman's purse because she is easy to outrun. I would take great pleasure in escorting anyone who tries such unscrupulous tactics off my property.
There, real world, first hand answers.
I won't reveal who said it or where but I have heard this from 2 employees of stores and 1 other I asked to verify. All three said CW threatens them with termination if they don't recruit a certain number of new members each month. Isn't CW a member store? It really isn't conducive to non-members even entering and in the winter up north can get really slow. Is this really what you do? I only ask because you pay the same as Walmart. I worked for McDonnnell Douglas Flight Test and they threatened us every day saying they could replace us but we would just reply,"Go ahead, you have to train the newbie for 10 years and think of the liability of a no experienced Aviation Mechanic, remember the DC 10 fiasco."Didn't work out too well for McDonnell Douglas did it? Maybe if they were more aggressive in making sure their employees met their quotas and job performance standards they would still be a viable company instead of nothing but a footnote in aviation history.
Don't believe everything you read and don't believe you have all the background information.

Not a good record
Forum Administrator blocked my posts, sent me a very rude reply when I sent a PM asking why and basically requested I leave and never return. I forwarded their PM to the Good Sam hierarchy, and to their credit they took full interest and got my account re-instated. Their response went over and above anything I could have ever expected. However, in deference to the forum administration and their request, this will be my final post. There are some moderators who take exception to posters with strong opinions that differ from theirs. And there is one moderator in particular who has great animosity towards me, my parks and RV parks in general. He has threatened to reveal my parks locations several times and frequently chastises my pricing and my practices. If he ever followed thru on those threats, my business could be harmed. I have tickled the dragon enough. Thanks for the memories. Paul(westernrvparkowner)
