Should this be moved to the Dogs thread on the Bothy?

Here in East Yorkshire, many Events cross fields with grazing sheep and cows, also some paths are granted special access by farmers just for the Event. It's just so problematical mixing dogs with these animals at times. Also, as I am aware, the Association's Insurance policy can be invalidated by the presence of dogs in certain circumstances.

Would some event organisers please please please consider ralxing the rules on allowing dogs to enter events. I have been an LDWA member for many years and enjoyed many events with my well behaved dog, however i usually have to travel a long way to find one that will accept dogs. I am very restricted in that i cannot enter any events which state no dogs as i cant leave him at home all day while i go out and enjoy myself on a lovely long walk, its just not right without him.
Obviously i understand the reasons why dogs arnt allowed, but surely all outdoor loving dog owners know the responsibilities required, and do keep their dog well under control and clean up after them and even tie them up outside the halls if need be. Please please re-consider so i can enjoy many more LDWA events in the future. If not then can it be clearly stated on all events lists whether dogs are allowed or not, if nothing, then i assume a dog is allowed.
