We travel with 4-6 dogs. As long as I point out they are small and well supervised it's not been an issue at campgrounds

We travelled extensively with our 3 dogs until unfortunately it became 2 ( lost our Sheltie ) and when we looked ahead and saw dog restrictions we called ahead and we're never turned down. I didn't want the stress of trying to be 2 when we were 3.
Personally I don't know how any place would turn down your Shelties😊

For what it's worth, we have traveled with three dogs for 15 years now and almost never had a problem. We stayed for two months at an RV park in Arizona that had both a 2 dog limit and a 10-year old trailer limit (our 1980 Caravelle was 28 years old at that time) with no problems. That was on a "don't ask--don't tell" basis".

If a campground charges a per-dog fee, we stay somewhere else.

I think an awful lot of these rules are to give the management an excuse to pitch you out if you are creating a problem.

However, I can't imagine that Lupe would ever be happy inside if we were outside, and she would express her displeasure. I've never seen three dogs where you could successfully rotate two at a time outside while the third remains inside. Maybe if one of them is an old decrepit dog who just wants to lay in its bed it would work. But I'm also pretty sure that if you have three dogs lying around outside, either the management is going to notice or someone will complain. So unless you really think you can pull off making it look like you only have two dogs, I would ask permission.
You can train dogs to do virtually whatever results one wants. Walking two while one waits inside is simple and takes about three short sessions after basic obedience training. Do this type thing every day when not traveling.

thank you

I tend to be of the honesty is the best policy type. We will call and ask.

Our dogs are all very well trained. We do agility with them which is another reason we bought the trailer, a place to stay at agility competitions. They are relatively small just under 20 pounds. If we can't find a park nearby, we'll test it out at an agility competition site soon. It's ironic, there are multiple agility competitions and dog shows that take place in state parks in this region, many of those people have as many as a dozen dogs at a show!

I agree with the person who suggested that towns and cities have limits of 3 or 4 (or no limits) on the number of dogs. On the other hand, I understand limits at a campground.

I laughed at the suggestion that we can't move around the dogs in our 22' trailer. We were actually considering buying a smaller one, but decided we needed something bigger. I think we will be fine.

Thank you everyone.

We enjoy bringing our dog with us and he is a very good traveler. Having said that, there is few things more annoying to me than a barking dog when I am trying to enjoy what should be peace and quiet.

Two things that do annoy me, and most other travelers, as much are people that ignore clearly posted rules and people that lie about their pet being a service dog. Please have some respect for the people that needs these animals so they can lead a better life and some respect for your own integrity.

Right. It's because I've become soft in my old age, plus now that I'm retired, Lupe is around me virtually 24/7, rather than just a few hours a day, like my earlier generations of dogs. I would imagine they're rolling over in their graves saying, "He never let US get away with that $hit!"

Unless you travel all the time why not draw straws for them. The short straw stays home the other two go. Next trip, take the one that stayed home. Problem solved.

Guaranteed their looking down going, WTF. But in retirement I've turned a hobby into a business. Much more fun than working.

Right on! I hate to say it, but some people think it's their God given right to live by a separate set of rules.....

Another thing that should not be allowed are those extendable leashes that pretty much allow a dog to go where he wants. Most park rules state leashes will be 6' long. Most RVer's apparently can't read well...

For whatever it's worth.

2 vs. 3

I've always thought any number limit is silly, ASSUMING, that they are not barking constantly. I would think that a pound limit would make more sense due to "output". We have 2 that total 24 pounds. But if we had 3 that totaled 36 pounds, would that be worse than someone with 2 that totaled 150 pounds? I don't think so.

The thing that bugs me is the "don't leave them in the trailer" rule. Why do they think we bought a trailer in the first place? Just staying at a motel / hotel is way less work, and all told, less expensive! The pet industry (and children) drive the RV industry from what I can see, but they don't seem to understand that and make the rules accordingly.

I don't have any advice, but with 3 dogs I'd ask permission.
