We've a got a problem at FW

Background: DH and I are on out 2nd trip to FW in 3 months. We have a dachshund who is almost 15 yrs old. He does get some separation anxiety but he usually stops barking after we leave ....

Yesterday we went to MK and came back to a "nuisance dog" note left on our step ... "dog barked all day" ... no signature. DH was really upset as we don't want to ruin anyone else's vacation but ... it's our vacation, too.

What should we do ...
1. Give it up and head on to our next stop after one day.

2. Figure it was his first day and head out to DHS hoping he will do better today if we leave the radio on or something. But come back in a couple of hours.

3. Cut back to just a couple of short park visits and get a babysitter in to stay with the dog ... wouldn't you like to hear that conversation when we call to schedule.

This would be harder if we weren't just here in Dec .... also HOW do you check out early at FW .... there's no front desk!

Our problem with that ... we have no car so would have to find a way to get the dog there and back ... dog has never been kenneled in 14+ years ... for the money, dogsitter may make more sense.

1) Taxi
2) Dog will be fine - kennels are safe and set up for this
3) Stranger dogsitter in my RV? Nope, I wouldn't do that.

I wouldn't want to kennel my 15 year old dog who had never been in a kennel before. Dog sitter might be the way to go. You could also try a few hours in a park and a radio.

We are afraid the note-sender will get us evicted under the nuisance dog provisions of FW rules then we lose our payment ...

Basic problem: if we're out of RV we can't hear the problem. At the other loop in Dec he would cry some times but not other times ... no one complained and we didn't complain about other barking dogs or the noisy music from the site next door that bothered us ... to us it is just part of the campground ambience that we all put up with ...

Sorry I am not offering advice but I was just curious...I may have read this wrong...can you have dogs stay with you at Fort Wilderness?? I thought dogs werent allowed anywhere on property except the kennel?? If this was already answered, I apologize

Yes, your can have your pet stay with you, which is awesome! But this is only for Loops designated as Pet Loops for people that travel in RV's. (No dogs left in tents.) I believe FW charges $5/day for this. Someone correct me if I'm wrong?
