I bring my dog, I keep her usually tied up unless there are other free roaming dogs. She usually is right next to me. I agree that my dog should not be in your stuff, on your rope, etc. She should be only messing with my stuff. If she goes there... I take her away, I do apologies and make sure she can't do it again.

I ask people to speak up if they don't want her around, we "the dog and I" can go elsewhere. Plus work with me... I will work with you. If you ask in a kind manner, I will respond in kind, and I will correct things quickly. Cuss me out, throw rocks at us, etc. I'm not so willing or nice. Not because my dog has more rights than you, but because as a human I don't like being attacked and letting anyone bully me out. Now that makes me just want to stick it to you.

Again, I'm human...

Thought this article might be of interest.

Next week is National Dog Bite Prevention Week, and health care specialists, veterinarians and the insurance industry are trying to get out the word about reducing dog bite incidents this year.

In 2011, about 70 million dogs were living in U.S. households, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association, down from about 72 million in 2006. That means 36% of the population has canine companionship.

The downside to that statistic is the more than 4.7 million dog bites reported each year. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says 800,000 Americans seek medical attentional annually for dog bites. Of those injuries, nearly half require emergency room treatment. Dog bite rates are highest among children ages 5 to 9, and related fatalities average 16 a year.

Along with any physical and emotional damage, these incidents have financial costs. The Insurance Information Institute estimates that insurers paid out nearly $489 million in dog bite claims last year. Giant insurer State Farm says it dealt with 3,670 dog bite claims in 2012, paying out more than $108 million on them.

State Farm recently released a list of the top 10 states for dog bite claims in 2012:

Number of claims
Amount paid (est.)

1. California
$17.1 million

2. Illinois
$9.0 million

3. Texas
$4.3 million

4. Ohio
$5.0 million

5. Pennsylvania
$4.5 million

6. Michigan
$4.6 million

7. Indiana
$2.7 million

8. Florida
$7.1 million

9. Georgia
$3.3 million

10. New York
$6.4 million

Laws can vary regarding dog bites. Some states have what is known as the one free bite rule. That is, if a dog bites and injures someone -- and has never done so before -- the owner isn't liable for those injuries.

According to the Dog Bite Law website, the rationale behind the one-bite rule "was that domestic animals by definition were not injurious, and therefore liability could be predicated only on the defendant's knowledge that a particular animal had a propensity to behave in manner that was injurious to humans."

Most general liability provisions in a homeowners insurance policy will cover the owner for dog bites. However, some dogs can be excluded, according to San Diego law firm Laureti & Associates, if the dog "is a breed known to be, or (has) the propensity to be, dangerous."

State Farm says it doesn't refuse insurance based on the breed of dog a customer owns because "under the right circumstances, any dog might bite."

I've seen well behaved dogs at the crag...and then I've seen the crazy, wild, stupid, annoying noisy dogs/and KIDS at the crag...the difference is the ADULTS who brought them...some know thier dogs and how they will act and others are just clueless...if you are clueless nothing can save us from you and your dog...if your intelligent and CARE about others enjoyment you already know if your dog will be a problem and will make the correct CHOICE!!!

Thirsty. why exactly is it that you wish i never come west? Is it because I will be polite at your cliff, I will not bark at people, i will not piss on your pack, I will not leave a dog tied up at the base while I climb multi pitch all day. Perhaps it is because I am a free man, not in servitude to dogs. I have no problem with others being endentured servants to dogs but I do cherish my own freedom;)
