I think being pet friendly and allowing four dogs in one site are two separate issues. Our park (Canyon Vistas) is dog friendly with even a nice new dog run last winter. The front and rear areas, and around the outside of the outer roads of the no pet area allows dogs.

The issue here is not finding a pet friendly park. The issue is finding one that will allow FOUR dogs in one site. That is going to be very difficult!

And believe me that people will turn someone in if they try to slip in without the OK from the front office. Seems there are a certain number of snowbirder's that feel they have to worry about what their neighbors are doing.

In our park there are a lot of walkers and bikers(I bike), and sometimes it can be challenging getting by someone with two dogs on two different leashes.

MAYBE this is the place to check out.

Not cheap, but seems VERY dog friendly.

I have 3 small dogs and go to Florida. I have found a park for this year that allows multiple dogs,however they are considering changing their pet policy. I was told I could put out a small,low fence but they've changed their minds...it happens. Last year I stayed in a park that allowed any number,any size...there were a lot of dogs!! I like the idea of seperating the dogs/no dogs areas of a park. Good luck with your search,I understand completely.

We traveled with three BIG dogs and stayed in many parks that had limit of two.

We always called the park first for permission and were welcomed "because we asked."

I might be able to help. First of all, most parks who say they are dog friendly mean that they have a policy that accept dogs. They ussualy disqualify two or three of the dangerous breeds (pitbull, doberman, etc). They almost allways set a two dog maximum.

We had to find a park for friends this winter who are travelling for the first time with four small ****zues(sp?). Last season, we had to look at about 15-24 parks in Mesa/Apache Junction area. We found two for them. The first one is in Apache Junction (n. Side) but I can't remember their name. The park I found for them who agreed to four small dogs is Weavers Needle in N. Apache Junction. A real nice park with amazing views of the Superstitions. The key is if you can find a park willing to allow four dogs they have to be small AND they have to be behaved. I personally don't know why someone wants to travel with four dogs. We love dogs but one was allway enough dog love for us. It does put a big crimp in where you can stay with these dogs.

Funny you should mention Valle Del Oro-they are part of Cal Am and they instituted a two dog limit a year or two ago. Someone gave you bum info.

We stayed at a campground a few years back where our neighbors appeared to have two small Pekingese with them. It wasn't until a few days had passed, and having walked my dog while they were walking theirs a couple of times, that I realized I wasn't seeing the same two dogs all the time. They actually had five very similar looking Pekes on board, but only brought one or two at a time outside. I don't recall if the park had a two dog limit, or if they only brought two out at a time just for their own handling convenience. I'm not suggesting this as a ploy to circumvent any park rules either. Use you own judgement in that regard...

I didn't mean to suggest that these websites would list places that accepted four dogs........just that they were pet friendly, so they might be a good place to start looking.

Thank you all soooo much. My father recently passed away and we promised to always care for his 2 dogs, hence 4 dogs now. We love animals and we have no regrets. We always appreciate and respect the separation of non-dog and dog areas. Again thank you all!

Meg we and several others, staying at Lake Letta RV Park in Avon Park, put-out small dog fences. This past year, there was even a small "doggie park" exercise yard erected. The park managers are dog people as are a number of residents. I think two dogs are the limit, but, the manager may make an exception.
