I don't know of an actual rules on dogs. I would think common sense would apply. You should keep your dog at your camp and clean up after them. Not allow them to bother other forrest users. Ticks are a major problem. Tick collars and the monthly application of one of special repellents (Frontline ,Advantage are a couple) will help. However you should check yourself and your animals daily as they still sneak by.

Cutters or Off will keep them off of you. Spray your clothes liberally. Of course if you are going dredging, ......oh well. Your wetsuit will help a lot. The ticks start to dissapear as it gets dryer and hotter. Usually mid to end of July.

Our Club Rules say that members have more rights than dogs. This means that if your dog becomes a problem to other members, you will have to do something effective to resolve the problem.

Ticks are particularly bad this time of the year (also for people walking through the brush). They kind of disappear (for people) as things start drying out.

Here is what I learned about dogs last summer with our dog.
Improved forest campsites and picnic areas require pets to be leashed at all times.
State rest areas require leashes at all times and restrict pets to posted areas only.
California Fish & Game will cite you if your pet harasses any wildlife in any way.
Siskiyou County has a "dogs at large" law that requires your dog to be under your "control" when not on private property. If your dog harasses or bites a person or other animal you will be cited & fined the cost of the investigation.
The only other rule was dogs not allowed at 49er potlucks. Since we couldn't leave our dog at camp, we left him in or tethered to our vehicle at potlucks, parked away from the Lion's Hall building and made sure he didn't bark. Always provide water, it is hot in the summer
As for other areas, like you said, respect other people's rights. Keep a rope or leash handy any time your dog is running free and when approached by strangers restrain your dog to prevent conflict. I also kept my dog restrained while dredging as he tends to wander if I don't keep an eye on him.
The 49er members are mostly all pet friendly people. Most have pets with them. We found there was plenty of time for our dog to run free last summer. We liked to take our dog down to the mouth of elk creek just off of curly jack rd and play fetch in the sand there for a good work out for the dog.
