    First of all, I appreciate the vast majority of you absolutely love your pets, and take them everywhere you go. However, Mrs Flook has the very same view of not loving animals, especially Dogs, and dogs on campsites frighten the daylights out of her, it has been this way since I have known her when I met her at the tender age of 17.

    So I do not what to cause or create any controversy here, all I want to know is this: do any of you FUNSTERS know of any good dog free sites. We have just just come from Brixham where her indoors has thoroughly enjoyed not one, not two but three weeks of being totally relaxed without any worry about dogs.

    Can you perhaps narrow down your ideas for location?

    Although I'm a dog lover, & just about to adopt a grey... I'm beginning to notice sites that say no dogs :rolleyes:.
    For example - I've just signed up for a Wildax and they recommend this site for the first night - which so happens to be - no pets...

    Many CLs and CSs, being frequently farm located, don't allow pets for obvious reasons. A good source of dog-free sites.

    I saw someone walking their dog in town a while back. The dog fouled the pavement, and off they went! I caught up with her handed her a poo bag, and said "I think you forgot something" Whilst standing in front of her so she couldn't proceed! :D

    Sorry can't say I know of any now - as we have dogs I used to take note when booking sites in the past to ensure we were allowed but now we don't use sited at all I'm afraid but there are definitely still quite a few sites that either don't allow them or make the cost prohibitive if you do have one!

    Ashurst in the New Foest is dog free, due to ground nesting birds, I understand.
    Quite a few in Devon don't allow dogs in high season.

    That's why god invented Vax Carpet cleaners! :D
    I have just spent the night doing the monthly clean of carpets and upholstery, it takes ages, but by god it looks good when it's done.
    As for going for a walk in the pouring rain, that is a downside, but I would say the majority of my walks are in non rainy conditions, with hound running around like a looney with her buddies at the local dog walking area.

    Contrary to belief, dogs do NOT like going walkies in the rain ... ours don't anyway! They'd just rather go out, do their stuff and run back in again! Of course you can get them waterproof coats and a 'doggy bag' for drying them off afterwards!

    But they DO like going out when it is not raining, but it has just stopped raining. Particularly rolling in all that mud, that look in their eyes that just says "I'm going to do this, and you can't stop me in time!" :D
    Maybe it is just the breeds that we like that have this trait! :D

    Will do - but haven't got her yet.
    Waiting until after Malvern because I didn't feel it fair to have her for a few days, then whisk her off in MH etc etc. Kennels said they would have her back but I felt that would be even more unsettling, kennels>new home>back to kennels.

    Only pic is from the website:

    Sorry, canna help the OP ( apart from Vilasol in Benidorm ! )

    But...
    Dillon is far from happy in rain. Unfortunately for him, Woman ( who I suspect is a bit of a purve or something ) loves the bloody stuff and drags the poor mutt out no matter how hard it is raining !

    We turned up at a CL yesterday and had to clear around our pitch where a previous camper must have let his dog mess. YUK. I love dogs but very angry when I see this. Noticed it when I walked in van and smelled it from my shoes!!!

    The Shore caravan site at Achmelvich (near Lochinver in Sutherland). One of my favourite places, that's Achmelvich Bay in my avatar, the site doesn't allow dogs as it does have sheep roaming about.
    How is Mrs Flook with sheep?

    Wise decision - I could never kennel a rescue. She's gorgeous. You may have noticed my last Grey as my avatar. Lost to cancer at 8yo. (my apologies too for continuing the thread drift ;))
