Hello as newbies to camping we recently took our old labrador for a weekend with no problem, but we have just been to see a new Rottweiller in a rescue who is adorable and alls being well we will have her home in the next few weeks (she is just like a skinny lab in temperament & friendliness but is a Rotti )

So the question is, has anyone else taken their Rottis camping and do you come across any problems with the breed being not accepted? We are not naive and know they are perceived badly, but hope this will not be a problem on a dog friendly camp site.

Look forward to hearing back with hopefully all good experiences!!

Many thanks

Yes i take mine everywhere with me but you will come across sites that state they are not accepted. All CC sites take them with no problems at all.

Hope you enjoy your new dog they really are the best breed ever and not like they are portrayed in the slightest :)

We have rescue German Shepherds and have encountered sites that do not welcome us despite all our dogs being as good as gold (and extremely quiet) & have seen on a few sites that rotties are also banned but please don't let this put you off rescuing one - luckily these sites are few and far between and we have enjoyed 7 years of touring with our pooches.

Well done on rescuing - wish there were more people like you!

Go for it I say!

Believe me there is nothing like a Rottweiler waking you up in the middle of the night by either scratching, farting or in guard dog mode.
Because it was the best dog that we ever had, we gave up caravaning until he passed on.

Now back in the saddle we still have a dog but I prefer not to take it with us.

giving the rottie a new home will be much more rewarding to balance a few refusals at sites, you'll always find somewhere.

I have been taking Staffies and English bull terriers camping on various sites from Cornwall to Scotland for over 20 years no problems yet, even in pairs at times.

If you're ever stuck for someone to look after it while you're away then give me a shout, I live in Bolton and I pet sit. That's providing I'm not away camping myself of course!

My ex used to do the garden for a family who had a couple of Rottweilers, in guard dog mode you wouldn't want to risk even entering the garden but otherwise they were just a pair of softies. Whenever I went up to see my ex while he was working one of them would take my hand very gently in his mouth and lead me round the garden. They weren't my dogs but I was still upset when they passed on.

Great dogs I'm now on my third, you will find some sites that will exclude certain breeds but hell it's their loss and to be honest you will normally find that they would be the type of site you wouldn't like anyway. One of the best dog friendly sites I've ever came across is ROSS PARK in Devon not far from Newton Abbot, even has a shower and grooming room for the dogs.

Have to agree about Ross Park my favourite site of all time and the fact they accept my dog...Bonus

We also have a rottweiler and we got him from the dogs trust and had him 4 years now. Like you it was a concern taking him away caravaning  as we just got our first caravan wee patsy earlier this year and went our first trip in august  to cruachan farm and he absolutley loved it, there was one site up north who wouldn't accept certain breeds although I cant recall which site.

I'd sooner see a rotteiler rather than some of the other breeds!  In my experience, Rottweilers can be lovely but I wouldn't trust a Staffy.  They can be fine one minute and turn the next!  My lab was torn by one who had played with her for a week prior to that!  All over a stone!

Any dog can turn in an instant. It is unfair to single any breed out, whether large, small, fluffy, or bald.

Here primarily as a camper, not as a dog law expert. But happy to give brief advice if needed. This is unless it falls under an area that goes against site rules.

I agree that, any dog or dog breed is capable of being aggressive in the right (or wrong) circumstances or upbringing.  However, some breeds are more predisposed to this as indicated by the fact that some breeds of dogs are illegal to own in the UK. 

I was simply commenting on my own experience regarding a wide range of dogs including those that many would consider to be more dangerous or guard dogs such as rottwellers, dobermans, german shepherds etc.......

As a by the by, the most violent dog I have ever had or owned was a collie whose violence came from protection and was known for it.  My point is, he was known for it.....

As with any animal, the MOST dangerous one is the one with no history of problems that occurs out of the blue as has been testified by pets that have mauled people after years of apparently faithful service with no problems.
