That can't have been a very nice experience Susan! In my own experience as a dog owner my dogs mix with other dogs all the time and have never shown any aggression to other dogs nor have they ever been shown any. We dine in dog friendly pubs quite often with them. I have witnessed the odd fight between people though!

Thanks englishrose. As the resorts mentioned are large not sure whether there really will be a negative impact on guests overall experiences. Just interested on how rules will be enforced with regards to time in rooms and areas not allowed etc.

I am sure most dog owners will obey by the rules but just like adults with their children, some think they are special and don't have to follow any rules. Seen many times kids allowed in adult pools / hot tubs areas and kids unsupervised by any adult in the pool area or playground areas.

I hope not too many dog owners behave same way and think they can allow their fluffy to be near the pools with them and at the playground for kids. I personally love dogs and have had a few but would never think of bringing them to Disney or anywhere on vacation unless i could be with them continuously throughout the day.

Places like a lake front cottage with lots of land and visiting family i can see taking them, but to lock up in a room for hours , well you and the dog better off left with a friend at home.
