Do other people here come across dogs that are off-leash whilst out walking their own?
Went for a walk yesterday with Zeddy and the whole family, and he was the only dog that was on a leash. We walked down footpaths, through 1 park with signs that clearly stated dogs must be on leash, and through a quiet end section of the main shopping street.
We encountered 8 dogs. Not one of them was on leash, but every owner finally put their dogs onto the leash when they were a couple of metres away from my dog.
One of them actually asked me if I 'had a good hold of that dog?' while they bent to leash their dog.
After our walk we were driving home, and passed a park which has large signs placed at all the entrances stating no dogs allowed in that section of park whatsoever. We spotted 3 dogs and their owners running around (all off leash.) Unbelievable.
So much for off-leash parks. Where we went yesterday it looked like the whole town was an off-leash zone.
