We often get posts about dogs on sites. As such we are creating this one discussion for people to post. This discussion can include anything from pictures of your dog/dogs enjoying their holidays and recommendations of good dog walks near Club or CL Sites, to your feedback regarding dogs on Club Sites.

Paws for thought...However, we ask that no posts are made that may cause upset, are antagonistic, argumentative or offensive as some discussions on dogs have become very heated in the past. Any such posts will be removed and it may affect your access to Club Together as per the Community Guidelines. Difference of opinion is always welcome and to be expected but posts must always be constructive and respectful of other’s views in order to keep Club Together the friendly and informative forum we want it to be.

Please also do not use this discussion as a means of complaint. If you have had a bad experience with a dog/dogs on a Club or CL site we want to hear from you and would really appreciate it if you could contact the Club directly so we can investigate this further by either calling 01342 327 490 or emailing UKSitesBookingService@camc.com

Thank you everybody and we look forward to hearing from you. smile

I'll start the ball rolling with a recommendation for a great little CL we stayed at recently. It's called Woodville and is at Pontesford near Shrewsbury. I won't repeat here what I've already written in my review. But just to say it's a very dog friendly place - the owners have their own 9 month old black lab puppy and there are several walks to be had direct from the site based around the nearby disused railway line so largely traffic free. Ideal if, like us, you have one elderly dog not able to walk far and a younger onefull of energy! smile

Would it not have been better to have placed this thread under the already created heading of "Your  Pets" within the "Social room" ----It seems a waste of forum space to have two places to post the exact same sort of discussion.

Rowena, good post 👍 Quote: "As such we are creating this one discussion for people to post." Unquote, but it is under 'UK Sites' frown

I tour both UK and 'overthere', am I precluded from posting anything from across the water?

Could you post pictures of your dog abroad on the Pets section, anything else within the remit will be fine under "UK sites".....

Following on from M's post, there are several club sites that are excellent for dogs and the first that spring to mind are Pembrey Country Park and Tredegar House in S Wales where the sites open onto parkland and estate grounds respectively.

Similarly, Dunnet Bay, Brora, New England Bay and Yellowcraigs in Scotland give easy access off the sites to beaches.

I'm sure there are more.

I think it is a good idea to have a thread like this (specifically about club and CL sites) here in an effort yet again to head off the number of controversial threads around this subject which must get quite tiresome for the CM and moderators. Putting it in the "Your Pets" section would do nothing to ameliorate that.

M - as far as "over there" is concerned I think posts are better in the "over there" section so that those who are interested in "over there" can focus their efforts in the right place. smile

I have no problem with that 'm', but Rowena stated "this one discussion for people to post". Does that mean anywhere else will not be tolerated?

Rochelle did create a travelling with dogs sticky in the overseas section when dog posts started to swamp it but it got lost with the upgrade

Could we not just elevate "dogs" to the status of Politics & Religion and ban the subject from CT altogether.....

It would make for far less aggro.........undecided

Ah yes, I see what you mean. I think I'd assume that positive non controversial posts about dogs "over there" would be welcome in the relevant place, particularly if the thread David mentions could be rediscovered or reopened, but I stand to be corrected. smile
