goodday ladies and gents
just wondering how people would feel about looking after others dogs at the innamincka meeting
that is we would look after a few other dogs 1 day so others could go where dogs are not allowed and next day another would look after the dogs so that over say 4 days we could cover a fair area of what is to be seen in the area

Would you care to elaborate on this comment. I'm not too sure I understand what you mean.

Begs the question............WHY?

Perhaps none of us should go up there unless we were "...born to the country...".

What a load of utter garbage.

Gday,
I think youll find Kim means dogs that are not used to that type of environment can be one, a pain in the ar$e and two, a danger to themselves?
I agree too.
Ive seen dogs that arent used to bush enticed out of camp by dingo bitches and ripped apart by the pack when they wander out in curiosity.
As for "Perhaps none of us should go up there unless we were "...born to the country..."." Well ....If you feel the urge to sneak out and root dogs at night......staying at home is probably better for all concerned!!!

My dog was born on a farm, but has lived in the city all it's life and I have never had these types of problems. Same with my previous dog.

That being said, I wouldn't take her to this type of event, where there are many other people, as she's an active dog and might just annoy someone who was not particularly fond of dogs....but I see myself as a responsible dog owner. I much prefer to take her into the 'bush' where there aren't lots of people and other dogs etc.

With 2 kids....the dogs are looking OK.... ;-)

Cheers,

Mark

I've been biting my tongue on this issue since the first mention was made of taking dogs to Innaminka.

I like dogs as much as the next bloke, but imho they do not belong at a gathering of the type that is being planned. As I say....just my opinion.....

I'm not trying to start WWIII, but just wishing to make my thoughts known.

I've seen it happen on too many occasions in the past where somebody's dish-licker has done it's business in the precinct of my campsite, or has come barrelling through, knocking all manner of gear over in it's excited state. Food scraps need to be more carefully stored pending final disposal, lest the dog/s get into the plastic bag (which we normally hang off the back of the camper trailer until we go to town to dispose etc). Around the campfire, they have been a blurry nuisance in and around people who are trying to cook etc etc.
Well....that's my 2 cents worth on the subject......

Cheers

Roachie

Could I respectfully suggest that those who are taking their dog/s with them, keep the issue of "respect for others" at the forefront of their thoughts and actions as regards their dogs please?

Hi Roachie

Yep - we're with you - thought this trip was planned for people - not dogs. The first dog that cocks its leg on our gear (as has happened before) will see us packing up and continuing on our way. We like dogs too, but unfortunately no one can guarantee their dogs behaviour - not to mention the barking and howling in the night. Being in a wheelchair, Greg doesn't particularly appreciate having to scrape off dog sh'''t off the spokes of his wheels. We have 2 dogs of our own and as RESPONSIBLE dog owners, have booked them in to the kennels as we do not expect anyone to have to 'dog sit' them while we are off doing what the gathering is actually about - looking around without having to rely on someone else to look after our pets.
Just my opinion for what its worth - though this is making me think twice about coming...

Hi All

We would love to go to the Gathering, but our business commitments, cant let us get away, I have been reading the threads,
re who is going ect, over the past weeks, and to my way of thinking,
the people going seem to be courteous and responsible, and I doubt
that they would let their dogs make a nuisance of them selves, dont
take your bat and ball and go home, stay and have a memorable time.

Cheers
Daza

Daza, No I'm not having 2nd thoughts about going etc.....I would just like those who are taking their dog/s to be responsible, and mindful that not everybody shares their love of walking around in doggy chit etc. As for the thought of lying awake at night listening to some mut howling at the moon or barking at everything that moves.......well, let's just say that I _DO_ enjoy my sleep and would be like a bear with a sore head the next day if that were to occur..... A quick pack-up and POQ would be the result I reckon. That's my problem, not anybody else's......

If any dog should happen to disgrace itself near me, it will (in all probability) find out what the toe of my steel-cap Blunnie feels like up it's date....;-))

Hey Roachie

There were 3 dogs at the Warraweena National Gathering. Did you hear them bark?....did thay defecate near your camp?......did they howl at night?....I think not.

I wish you would'nt try to stir up sentiment in an effort to create a divide.

Travelling with dogs for some, is a way of life.

If you don't like the fact that there may be dogs at the National Gathering then perhaps you could choose to go elsewhere at that time.


Cheers

If someones dog annoys you...tell them.
Im not going but if I were my two dogs would be comming, and anyone who kicked them would have my steel cap up their ar$e.
I take my dogs bush regularly and most people wouldnt even know they were there.

Settle down you blokes......I'm sure all of you (who have responded) fit the category of "responsible" owners.

Willie....you're dead right; I am aware there were some dogs at Warraweena and they were all well-behaved and I have no issue whatsoever with Jeda and other similar dogs.....

It's the ones (as I have tried to make myself heard above) that DON'T know how to behave around other people, that I am referring to.

If you own a dog that doesn't do any of those things (that I would class as "anti-social") then we'll all continue to get along famously......

Cheers

Who's going to take good care of my flag if I don't bring the mutt along? I still bear scars from the last gathering (it was such a nice flag :-( ), any such attempted repeat of these activities will result in scars being left on the offendors this time hehehehehe. Black mutt has her seat booked.....now if only I can talk the rest of the family into coming, I'll be set to catch you all up out there. Only flagnapper's will even know the dog is there.

T_I_C intended.

In view of your later post in this thread your post above could be construed to suggest you intend to leave poison baits around the camp area. Perhaps you would care to clarify what you mean?

I am a dog lover and take my dog everywhere with me,and do my best to keep them out of other peoples way,but i see both sides of the debate,not everyone is a dog person and sometimes it may be better to leave them at home but everyone sounds like they will do the right thing either way.I wont be going to the meet ,hopefully i will be going out that way in the coming weeks and will be taking my dog.

Steve,

If the pup goes missing the night before we leave Innamincka, can you let me know cause Sam would probably have stashed it in Darkie somewhere to take home.
The pup you had at Pyrenees was a long topic of conversation on the way home from there :))

The last National gathering i attended almost resulted in a dog bite to one of kids. Thats why i leave mine at home. If my dog bit someone or worse someones kid, you would have no option but to put the animal down. As for your comment on kids..........i think your stupidity speaks for itself.

well this thread has been well and truly hijacked by the antidog brigade but as far as we are concerned you CAN ALL GET STUFFED AS WE WILL BRING OUR TRAVELLING COMPANION WITH US
we are responsible dog owners who do the right thing
i notice there are afew replies from nonmembers and others who are not even listed as going to innamincka and i feel sorry for these people who dont like dogs or other pets our caravan is our home and he travels with us
this thread was started to try and help others who are taking there dogs not as discussion point as to whether or not dogs should be there or not
