Even though I just camped at Flaming Lake LAST WEEKEND, The owner of Flamingo Lake has just determined that the Bullmastiff is an agressive dog breed. They are unwilling to budge, and I am unwilling to be dis-honest to them. Therefore, I regret that I will no longer be camping there. Also, since I store my RV there, I will need to find another Storage facility.

I am sorry to hear that Mike. We have never camped there but have always heard it was a nice place. I am always amazed at the short sightedness of some businesses.

I understand your frustration, however we camp there all the time and this is not something that was decided by the owner, it was brought about due to insurance.

Yeah those are a vicious breed, right up there with labradors and great danes!Only real danger is if they wanna sit in your lapand lick you. What part of town are you in? We have a covered storage place nearby that I keep my boat (under cover) at that is reasonable and has on site security.

I am really sorry about the change in our pet policy at Flamingo Lake RV Resort. I am the Marketing Director for the park and I can assure you that we are all dog lovers here at Flamingo Lake however, when the insurance company speaks, we have to listen to what they say in order to maintain proper coverage for the park and our guests. The determination of what breeds are allowed and what are not was not made by anyone other than our insurance carrier and I can also assure you that there is no one more pet friendly than our General Manager. I appreciate your not wanting to deceive us by sneaking your dog in when it is not allowed but please do not hold any ill will toward the park regarding this policy. Again, we, and any other park will tell you, when the insurance policy holder speaks, you must abide by their guidelines. The policy hurts all of us as we are all dog lovers here and I don't want to see any turned away.

Thank you for the opportunity to respond.

Maybe because an attack by a 5-pound ankle biter requires less surgery than an attack by a pup weighing 100+?

Ken,

If the policy was that way from the beginning, I could understand. However, Over the last 2 years, I and my dog have been camping there with you almost monthly on average, as Flamingo Lake is by far, my favorite RV destination, even though it's only 20 minutes from my house. I cant tell you how many free nights of canping I have received there because my card was stampped full. I also appreciate the Veterans discount. However, it still does not change the fact that the bullmastiff is a calm loving breed. I took on the reponsibility to have my my dog and I obiedienced trained. I always keep her on a leash, even though I really don't need to. Unless she was in your dog park, as it is her favorite place of all time. However, please allow me to take the time to inform you that there is a nationally recognized Obiedience and Dog Temperment Tesing organization. American Temperament Test Society, Inc. I can take my dog and have her tested and certified. As Marketing Director for my favorite
RV Resort, will you please run this by your insurance carrier and ask them if a dog has a certification from a nationally recognized organization, are they willing to reconsider? Or what if she were certified as a service dog? would
she be allowed then?
