Work camping with pets?

Iíll be retiring soon, and have been checking out the opportunities to camp host at national and state parks. Does anyone know what the policies are regarding having pets? Iíll be traveling with a cat and dog.

I work in a private campground that is very pet friendly and many work campers have dogs or cats.
The biggest issue is while working your animal has to stay in your site and as long as they are well cared for and do not bark there is no problem.
Most of the workers who do have dogs are couples and the schedules are set up so one is not working while the other is so there is no problem.
And there is no dogs on your golf cart.

I often see camp hosts in State, National Forrest, and private campgrounds with dogs. State campgrounds may depend upon rules of that particular state.
We do spend much time at a campground in Western NY that does not allow dogs. While I love dogs, my love of dogs are for those that are well trained and don't bark (at least when told not to). People often think there are good dogs and bad dogs, but I like to think trained dogs and untrained dogs. Untrained dogs have no place in public. Just my humble opinion.

To make my point, just today, a camper came in beside us. They have a dog that seems like a nice dog, friendly and all, but not trained. It keeps wandering from their camp site to visit. The owner will say, "come here". Then he repeats the same command but a little louder. Then again as the dog doesn't listen, louder. Then again louder.
Obviously the owner never put in the time and effort to train the dog. Since the dog is actually pretty cool, though untrained, the owner repeating commands is much more annoying than the dog.

I think it is really going to depend on where you wll be. You might try asking at the Escapees forum (free to join) as they have a workcamping section & pet section: https://www.rvnetwork.com/

One rule I have had with the dogs I have had and their training is that there is no way I would want to, or would, repeat a command. They just need to be trained to listen.

A well trained dog has many great benefits. An untrained one can be a real bother despite it possibly being a nice animal.
