    Don't assume that everyone who doesn't appreciate interacting with uncontrolled dogs is afraid. Some folks are just tired of dealing with other folks' inability to keep their problems to themselves. If I wanted a dog I'd bring one. If I wanted to borrow someone else's I'd ask. Not afraid of dogs, love them in fact, but the phrase no bad dogs comes to mind often on trail. They can't help who owns them.

    I don't mind dogs either but a good one is not to neglect your dog on trail if you are hiking with one, think of their needs as much as yours.

    My personal advice is "If you choose to bring your dog on a hike, it becomes your dog's hike." That one line has served me well for 14 years of hiking and five hiking dogs (not all at once )

    If you hike with a dog, donít get a fake service dog certificate so you can get around the rules of where dogs arenít allowed.

    Thank you for posting these thoughts. Yes to each, especially when enduring someone gripping about the trail rather than their own poor choice of hiking footwear.

    Don't smoke your weed in your tent if you are camped near other hikers. It is so annoying when you are trying to sleep and someone else's smoke comes in your tent. Be respectful to non-smokers.

    Hey, lighten up, at least they are going in their tent( and risking a fire), to appease other people..
    Or maybe they’re just running low and thinking twice about sharing their bag!
    Either way, their weed probably smells better than you!

    Conversely, don't *ask* everyone how many miles they've hiked or how much their pack weighs -- or why they chose those shoes, or why do they use poles, or if they've ever considered a hammock....

    I honestly don't think I can ever recall anyone giving me an unsolicited story about their mileage or pack weight, but I also can't remember a single trip when I haven't been asked. And asked, and asked, and asked....
