    found this post on caravan club forum ,,,
    owners, I have realised that I may have inadvertantly caused annoyance to some of my neighbours on club sites. I like to think of myself as a responsible dog owner - our two rarely bark, are far too lazy to take notice of other dogs or childfren walking past our pitch, are always walked on a short lead on site and we always clean up after they do - well what dogs do.

    So what is the problem you may well ask?

    Well we give them dry dog food and I am worried now that the noise when I empty the food into their dishes, and the noise they make when they crunch their way through meals may disturb some other campers. To make matters worse, after eating they usually have a drink and I guess the sound of them slurping at the water bowls may well carry beyond our own pitch.

    I would hate other dog owners to be caused problems by the thoughtless and selfish way I feed and water the dogs. So do other members have any advice on how I can avoid being a nusiance in future

    Try inserting their food from the other end, not too sure how the Water will go tho:Sad:
    Perhaps someone with a broader medical Knowledge could help with that (haganap maybe)

    We're dog sitting a Yorkie (Rosie) at the moment while her Human is in Scotland, It's gets the old heart lurching when you are in a deep dream chasing TYNON around the Galaxy, and you suddenly awake with a wet nose shoved in your face instead of- - - - - - ?:Doh:

    simples, feed the dogs when the lawnmower or strimmer or tractor are being used on the site. or ask your neighbour to turn up their radio

    my attitude though is stuff the whingers, they would be very pleased to have a dog onsite if somebody was sneaking about after dark to knick their bikes

    How unthoughtful of you. Why not get an old Burco boiler and boil cows belly from the abattoir. The dogs will love it and no crunchy noises. Will find you something to do on campsites and think of all the new friends you will make as you happily boil away your tripe.

    Just feed them when your running your generator. That's what we do and we never get any complaints. At least, none that we can hear!

    Have to say what an interesting thread, thanks for the laughs, seriously though some campers, mh, tuggers are unbelievable, decades ago when we were tenters, everyone spoke and said good morning, it was very sociable , but now, half that I spoke to on our last holiday didn`t acknowledge, that was on a CC&C site at Kessingland, that is spoilt now by the wind turbines, noisy day and night. will not go back there again.Has anyone else found that campers are not so talkative nowadays, or is it just us?:Eeek:

    Never have a problem with fellow campers coming to have a chat. Generally when am cooking bacon and cheese on oatcakes or when am having my afternoon gin and tonic :Doh:

    The campers were probably having their brains fried by the infrasound emitted by the turbines.....some people reckon the infrasound problem will be as big as asbestosis …..It’s only a matter of time before a link between ill health and proximity to turbines is proven and goes to court.

    Lol, our four must make an auful lot of noise eating and drinking ! We are camped now at Actons Eco camping near Clifton, Connemara, and are surrounds by tents, tuggers and other MHs all concentrating on having a great time. The kids have all been over to see our dogs and are still playing outside in the dusk. No tv or electronic gizmos and all are happy playing at games I used to do when I was a kid - rolling down sand dunes, playing ball etc.

    Don't be disheartened! We would always say "good morning" to others we see on sites, but there are the exceptions sadly:Sad: Don't be put off by these miserable types.........we have met some really nice people recently both at Lower Wensleydale and The Firs (both CC sites) and we will continue to give those who look our way a friendly nod/hello:thumb:
    We met two really nice Welsh couples at the Firs and we stood talking for hours whilst watching the sunset over the Peaks, we eventually got back to the van just before midnight. We were very surprised at the amount of people on the site who even said "good evening" to us during all the time we were chatting.
    One couple came over to us to exchange e-mails on the morning we were leaving, so the friendly sociable people are in the majority thankfully.
    But there was a really miserable "tugger" :BigGrin: who moved into the pitch next to us after one of the Welsh couples left..........he had no intentions of saying hello:BigGrin:
    We had a great night recently with a couple of tuggers from Pickering and will keep in touch with them. Generally we find the younger ones less likely to talk, (reach for tin helmet:Laughing:), but usually those in their 50's and older are more than happy to chat. Having said this we realise that not everyone will want to acknowledge and that's fair enough. But it does irk us when you say hello and they don't acknowledge you:Sad:

    Seems all the replies are from dog owners.And if you don't like dogs you are labelled a whinger.

    Dog owners cant comprehend that some people don't like/are scared of... dogs.

    If they invented a shitless variety I'd have two........but they do make a mess.
    Lots of owners just leave it .......and the really stupid ones around here pick it up put it in a plastic bag and hang it on the bushes for someone else to pick up.

    When they are left in motorhomes or caravans on site which they often are while the owners go out.......they often bark all day.

    The folks next door to my house think the dog they put in the kennel when they go out never barks. " He's wonderful he never barks" They put him in his run with some food then go out. When fido has finished his food he starts barking. They never hear this of course.

    As for " don't worry he wouldn't hurt a fly " as a frothing at the mouth Fang
    tries to take you off your push bike........as I said dog owners are the last people who have a balanced view about dogs.

    Best bet .....get a cat :)
