The Oregon Department of Parks and Recreation is thinking about relaxing its ban on pets in its more than 250 yurts and cabins and is asking for comments.
It's a good idea. A lot of state park goers bring their dogs and it's difficult to camp at a yurt and have your dogs sleep out in the truck.
The key to the whole debate is to have dog yurts and dog-free yurts.
Campers that use the dog yurts should have to submit an extra $50 cleaning deposit, which is refundable when they check out if the yurt has not been damaged or is not dirty.
I'm a dog owner. Our three dogs go with us everywhere. I love dogs and believe they should go with you on vacations and outdoors outings.

Wonder what the Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation thinks about allowing dogs in yurts in Idaho state parks? Right now it is not allowed.
