On the recent Old Fella Rally we had at least 11 dogs between us all and I dare say we had 100% pick up. Leashes were everywhere and the dogs were mostly well behaved. It can be done.
Yes Doug, now that you mention it, Jill and Charmin were a bit rowdy!

We always clean up after our dogs, even our children do. Now what I really like if there is 2 dogs on a site, one is tied up the other is loose and comes after your dog. Scary

I find that number to be more in the neighborhood of 50% who pick up after their dogs. Probably a difference in where we camp (RV Parks vs Campgrounds and boondocking sites.


I agree. I would say about 90% pick up in commercial RV Parks as the rules are more strictly enforced. We have stayed in some COE Parks where I think it was less than 50%.

I have yet to go camping and see 100% compliance on pet rules, lucky to see it at 75%

We only have a "B" so we usually get a small lot....I phoned the owner of a park we loved awhile ago to ask about a seasonal site and I said " I am the lady with the 3 chihuahuas that rented site #7 " There was a moment of silence and then she said...You had 3 chihuahuas with you ???? Now I had cleared this with her when we booked the dates...walked past the office with the wees numerous times a day/night.... I don't allow the dogs to bark unnecessarily, I always carry a stash of poop bags and use them....so I can honestly say I am in the 75 percentile of responsible owners ( at least that is one thing I am good at )

We always carry extra bags with us and have on many occasions offered them to people that "forgot" theirs, it works, probably out of embarassment they do pick up.

I'm a stickler for picking up after our two dogs so when I see a "gift" from others dog(s)I will clean it up.
Recently at a COE park, a camper with three dogs would look around and if nobody (he thought) was not looking he would walk away.
Rather than confront him I asked the ranger to please explain the rule about dogs. it worked, he started cleaning up the "gifts"

Our clean up rate depends on where we are.

Parks, rest areas, gas stations, cities, etc = 100%
Livestock pastures, barns, paddocks, etc = 0%

Small kids walking dogs and looking around to see if anyone is looking and if they don't see someone they skip the scooper detail. Teens can be just as bad. Some adults must think there is some minimum size before a scoop is required - note- there is NO minimum size.


Since I have blue bags stashed everywhere (ya just never know when you'll need one!) - I like to do THIS to someone you think is about to doge their duty (literally): "Uh-OH! Do you need a pickup bag?? (waving one in the air) It would be a shame to have anyone think you're a RUDE dog owner!!"

At this point, they accept and pick up/they produce one of their own and pick up - or they decline and admit that they are rude.

My attitude is that these morons make it difficult and/or pricier for the rest of us to bring our pets camping - if I embarrass them, so what?

OK - I have to admit to a "Steppability Quotient" - if I'm running the dogs at the State Game Area and someone poops under a pine tree, where I'm going to have to CRAWL to get to it - I don't. I figure nobody's going to step in that. But if it's on or alongside the trail, I scoop.
