Let's take a vote on our preferences regarding dogs as companions.
I vote NO on group hikes.
However, if hiking alone or with a small group that is aware the owner will
be bringing Fido, I vote YES, IF the owner has the dog under control at all
times and assumes all responsibility for the animal's actions (i.e. leaving a
common camping area if the dog is barking, or walking all over everyone
else's things; keeping the dog on a leash if there are other hikers around;
cleaning up after the dog). I am an animal lover myself, but I would
appreciate meeting a dog in the woods for the first time with its owner were
present and the dog leashed.
