Camping With Your Pet
Camping with your pet can be a wonderful adventure for both owners and pets. Before you bring your pet, there are a few things you should know and rules to be followed.
- Pets must have up to date rabies vaccinations. Proper papers must be presented at registration and kept on file in the office per State of Maine requirements.
- All approved pets must be on a leash at all times, and will not allow the pet to extend off a site in any direction. No exceptions. A straight line leash no longer than 6 feet is allowed.
- Pets must be walked by an adult. For the safety of all, children are not permitted to walk pets.
- Owners MUST clean up after their pets. Please place droppings in the dumpster or designated Doggie Dump stations, NOT in the woods or elsewhere.
- Do not allow your pet(s) to "go" on other's sites at any time.
- Pets are NOT allowed in any buildings (rec. hall, bath houses, laundry room, office), pool area, on the playground, or other campsites -occupied or vacant.
- Pets must never be left unattended, anywhere at any time, this includes in your trailer. Information on boarding kennels or doggie day care is available at the office.
- DO NOT feed any pet that is not yours.
- Any nuisance pets (barking or crying, aggressive, etc.) creating disturbance will not be tolerated and shall immediately be removed at the request of Management
Water: Lazy Frog Campground has great drinking water, however your pet(s), (like humans) may be sensitive to any change in food or water. For this reason, you may consider bringing bottled water from home. KEEP YOUR PET HYDRATED. Extra panting and warm temperatures warrant extra amounts of water.
Food: Fill ziploc baggies with each food serving per day times the number of days for each pet. Toss them in a tight-lid container, easily accessible at meal time for each feeding.
Doggie Bag: New scents can be confusing for your dog. Pack a bag with comforts from home, such as favorite toys, beddings and snacks.
Droppings: Bring "doggie bags" or stuff toilet paper/paper towel tubes with used plastic garbage bags. Dog waste breaks down slowly, unlike moose or deer "scat." We love dogs, but dispise stepping in or sliding on poop.
6' Leash: It is most comforting for both pets and guests to have your pet closest to you. Long leads can be dangerous for pets and owners.
ID Tags: You should always have updated ID tags on your pet(s). Include your cell phone number when you travel, or write the number on the collar with a black sharpie.
First Aid: Like humans, pets can get injured, and being prepared for any health complication is for the safety of your pet and well-being. Kits can be purchased from a pet-supply store or you can easily assemble your own kit with the following check-list:
