Caching with pets.

Recommended Posts

I think there should be TWO dog buttons. I have a little (oops - I meant to say size challenged) dog (miniature Schnauzer) and he can't negotiate really BIG obstacles, not like the big (I meant *hearty*) dogs I see pictured here. How about a button for the size of the dog, or maybe a slider so you dial in the cache to exactly match the breeds you believe can make the cut. And a bigger question - what about kids? I believe there should be a bunch of buttons to rate the cache in kid terms, not just adults. I mean, come on, you NEED buttons for "No toys, just tools", "Long walk, small cache", "Giant cache, full of beanie babies", "Historical Virtual Cache - no way", stuff like that.

Great looking pooch leatherman. I've cached with Buddy but his small size does foul him up off trail. How did yours handle that cache? 4 1/2 stars!!

I'm still a newbie, but it seems to me that at the very least, if a hider sees a sign that says that pets are prohibited, they ought to have the decency to put that in the cache description.

 

OTOH, maybe we dog owners ought to start using the "Post a Note" feature to tag caches that we find which prohibit our furry friends.

That's a good idea. One problem is the note will wind up down the page as more finds are posted. Maybe we dog owners could write the hider and ask him/her to add it to the cache description section so it can be easily seen?

I keep taking my cat with me, but so far the containers haven't been large enough for him to fit in.

I understand what a lot of you are trying to say, but being really sarcastic when you make an argument doesn't really make your argument very effective.

 

Now, I think the reason people want a dog one and not a pot-belly pig or money section is because dogs are the most common domesticated animal companions in our country and I am sure they rank high in other nations. To those of you arguing against the button, does it really hurt you for it to be there? It could be defaulted to "Don't know" and you wouldn't even have to touch it if you don't care about it when you enter in a cache. Those who want to present that information can change it to Yes or No accordingly. I try to look on web sites for the places I go to as to whether dogs are allowed but a lot of times the State Parks web sites don't metion it depending on what state you are in.

 

Anyway, I think if it is included and default to "Don't Know," even the people adamantly against it (for whatever reason) don't have to be bothered with it. Also, just because you don't personally find information useful doesn't mean it doesn't need to be there. I am sure there is some information you would like to be present that I might not agree with and I would certainly listen to your arguments and try to see your side of things.

This entire argument doesn't matter anymore. Looks like admin is going to implement this feature now.

If you do not extend your expectations unto others, you will not be disappointed by the stupid things they do.

Mokita!
