A few years ago I'd noticed they put in some corrals around vegetation down in the inner city, along with some signs to keep dogs out of the fenced areas. Sounds like dogs have been digging up the cool dirt at the base of trees and causing some problems.

Okay....i'll accept that i'm a pussie. Actually my complaint is about dog owners who bring their beloved pets to an environment that is unsuitable vis a vis the other people there and, for the most part, do little to monitor their dogs behavior.
I won't call dog owners pussies but a lot of them are oblivious to the experience of those around them.
How many dog owners actually obey leash laws?
How many dog owners clean up their dogs sh#t?
How many times have you been told by the owner of a meanacing dog, "oh, he's harmless, just pet him?"
And how many times has a dog owner said after Rover has bitten someone, "oh, that's the first time he has done that?"
Hiw many times have dog owners tied their pet up and then have been oblivious when Rover barks insessantly while they are off climbing?
How many times have dogs been allowed to forage and your lunch has been the prize?
How many time have you been nearly knocked off of your feet on the approach trail by man's best friend?

Okay, i may be a pussy but i'm also a whiner...ha, ha.

How many climber poops have you stepped on? How many climbers have stepped on yur rope? How many times have you had to listen to nearby screaming and the like while trying to do a route? How many climbers have been ripped off by other climbers? How many times have you found a crag littered with climber debris? When faced with that,, a dog doesnt look so bad. WOOOF WOOOF!

Jim,

Bottom line, before you pass from this earth, I truly hope you get a dog. Get one like Dean's, not a family dog, but your dog.

A little Queensland Healer. would suit your life style.

The bottom line is, if you have a cool mellow crag dog, no one will notice or care, but if you are a dork with an agressive Pit Bull potrolling the base when you're high above, well then you give us all a bad name.

As far as I'm concerned, dog's are cool if the dog is cool.

My dog Rio, was the best dog ever, brought him guiding everyday for ten years in JT. The ranger at the kiosk would bring him treats... Just saying

Coz....a confession, my wife and i are cat people, we have three. We rescued one from the base of Baboquivari Peak in Dec. I guess that explains a lot about my bizarre behavior...eh

Good on ya, cat's are cool, but I have to say, I don't think I knew what love was, until I rescued a dog.

I grew up with cats but, they're a little like climbing bums, only around when they need something, and always looking for the next opportunity to exploit.

Perhaps a thread arguing cats and dogs would be interesting.

Katy Cassidy, a remarkable climber from bitd, is also a cat person. She takes her cat to the crags with her and has for years. We did a trip to Vedauwoo and her kitty came with. It was awesome. Are pussies allowed at COR?

My poodle is a good pup. Very reserved, quiet, polite, a bit off a rapist if provoked. Doesn't make a peep unless you mention chicken. Beta spray is a bit more annoying than dog yelps. That said sad dogs left alone is hard to take. Auggie can handle two ptch climbs at Woodfords, it's his second home. On road trips we stick to base route so as not to bother others. I've been nipped at the leap by a dog that was guarding it's owners pack, not too cool. If my dog was aggresive I wouldn't bring him along. I also bring extra water to pour on the ground so he won't dig to get to the cool moist dirt. He's my only child I couldn't leave at a kennel, he wouldn't make it. Dan

More than once I've had dogs at Lunch Rock in Idyllwild "guarding" their owners pack, which was dropped off right next to mine. Had to shoo him away with rocks to get close enough to pack up and get out.

Went on a run again today a bit later than usual, and the urban sprawl was in full force. Passed a good 20 dogs in 5 miles, not a one was a problem. Sometimes tho... they are. Been nipped a few times by hood pups.
