    Hi
    has anyone come across any sites that allow more than two dogs?
    We normally only travel with 2, but have an ailing dog and cannot leave him with anyone re his needs.
    We are extremely responsible owners and keep them on leads, pick up mess etc exercise off site.
    Dogs would not be roaming and kept with us at all times.

    Ps we are motorhomers and have a coachbuilt

    There are many dog freindly sites, there is usually a charge per dog.

    Click here and search for a site in the area you wish to camp there will be lots of info also each site show a dog symbol if it allows them.

    regards

    All the C & C C sites accept dogs and I've often seen units with 3 or more.

    We were at Kingsbury last weekend and one friend has 3. Another friend who lives locally came to visit with her two, and what with my two and another friend with one, we went walking with a pack of 8.

    Hi,
    There are three sites in Brandon, all happy to take dogs to the point one campsite is used by the husky racers when they have does in the forest, three vans of up to eight huskies in each. A fantastic site when they are out eating.

    Hi Maxitai,

    We at Cornish Farm Touring Park have no limit on dogs, in fact we love dogs, we just don't like irresponsible dog owners. You will always be welcome here with your best friends. :Smile:

    Its amazing how many motorhomers are also dog owners. Many have a motorhome because of their pet. It seems the majority of campsites accept dogs. So many infact that sometimes I have taken it as a given that they do and have forgotton to ask, only to discover later that my German Shepherd is not welcome. (We have also used the same assumption and found that our kids were not welcome as there are now quite a few Adult only sites.) Be prepared to pay for the dogs though, most site owners charge extra.

    With demand outstripping supply in many areas, sites are becoming not only more expensive but are also cherry picking their guests.. I've seen all of these banned at one site on another ..
    kids, dogs, single sex parties, motor bikes, RVs, tag axle vans, awnings, ground sheets, ball games, kites, quad bikes, electric scooters, BBQ, .. it's an ever increasing list, long gone are the days of a farmers field, a tap in the corner and a pit for dumping .. and no restrictions.. obeying the Country Code was all that was asked..

    We don't ban anyone but Mark was close to banning someone who came here and started fishing without asking first if it was allowed :Angry:

    Whilst searching for a site in the torbay area this week we came across a fair few that didnt allow dogs. The ones that did were fully booked.

    The charges for dogs are nomally £2 - £3 per day. It got me thinking why there was any charge or dogs at all

    C & C C don't charge extra for dogs.

    I try to avoid sites that charge - an extra £6 for two dogs per night makes it a dear do.

    You can check Enjoy life with your dog for many sites (including ours, so they are not all in the UK) that welcome dogs.
