Campers - You really, really can teach your dog not to bark


You can do it!  Stop being the unwanted guest of the campground.  You can socialize your dog and get them in obedience classes (along with you, the owner) to train your dog to stop barking at every living thing that walks by your RV.

Please.  I beg of you.  Do this.

Of course, if the dog barks only when you're away this is more difficult to do.

This is a park management issue along with an owner issue. If the dog is being a nuisance the owners should be warned once and then asked to leave. Unfortunately, park mangers many times don't want make anyone mad at them so they make everyone put up with an impolite neighbor. I my world I'd leave and then charge the cost back on my credit card because I'm pretty sure that most campgrounds have rules against annoying your neighbors. It also wouldn't hurt to leave a review on one of the campground review sites. Hopefully they'll get the message soon.

I don't know why it would bother someone that my dogs bark. They are just being dogs and I like it that they alert me if someone is coming onto my lot. I have set outside at my next door neighbor's place and can barely hear my dogs when they do bark.

 I think the issue is when the dogs bark incessantly, some do.  If it's an occasional bark I wouldn't find it a problem, if the dog goes on a barking tirade for a half hour every time is sees a squirrel I would have an issue with it.  Like many things in life, moderation is the key.

There are a number of things that annoy me in a campground. I hate noisy generators running for hours, especially the contractor grade ones picked up for a couple hundred bucks at Home Depot. Noisy, smelly diesel trucks idling for long periods of time is another pet peeve. Another thing that gets my goat is people who leave their windows open and play their TV at full volume. Babies crying incessantly also gets my goat, as do parents hollering at the top of their lungs at their kids to behave. But by far the worst is the high power stereos turned up so loud that the bass vibrates my windows, playing God forbid, vulgar rap music laced with profanities. Most of the time it's from a visitor's car, or a car parked at a tent site filed with all night partiers whooping and hollering and even cursing themselves. But dogs, kids, etc. don't annoy me much unless the noise is extremely loud and incessant.

I have a small conure who during the day can let out an occasional screech or two if she sees another bird, but not incessantly. She sleeps when the sun goes down and awakens hours after the sun has come up (we cover her cage), so she does not emit a peep during quiet time. However once, while camping in a remote cherokee reservation campground deep in the smoky mountains, rich with forest sounds, I got a complaint when I took my bird out around noon, that its occasional squawk disturbed a neighbor. I brought her inside immediately and moved the next day, but I wonder how the neighbor identified my bird chirping over the rather noisy babbling brook located right next to our campsites, and all the other forest birds generating similar sounds, whose calls she was merely answering? This is why I like to boondock the vast majority of the time - so I don't disturb any neighbors and they don't annoy me.

I suggest that people who are similarly noise adverse or who just enjoy their privacy more than most, do likewise. Besides, boondocking is free!

The dog is devoted to its owner and when it sees an outsider in the territory, it barks. To attract the attention of the owner and scare the intruder. How do you want to wean this?
