Thread: Market Day

    There was a 5 year old mauled approaching a tied up dog here. They enforce it in my area.

    I work, I study, I run a business from home and I make time for my dog. If they can't be bothered walking their dog they shouldn't have one.

    It is wrong for them to disregard the law, particularly those designed to keep their dog and all kids safe. Not to mention the number of bait dogs obtained via theft.

Do they really think my dog is going to contaminate their food if they get any closer?? Or that I will let her jump onto someone's table to scoff their hamburger?

    i think there are a few dog friendly cafes around, not sure about canberra but on the sunshine coast there are

    I know of a few here, but I think they are actually breaking the law by allowing dogs in the outdoor areas.

    I didn't know about the dog being tied up in front of a shop wasn't allowed to be done any more.
    For that I think you for pointing it out.
    We haven't left Murphy alone for long outside a shop. But I did do it to see what he would do. I had my eyes on him all the time. But now that I know this I will not be doing it again.

    that law is silly, how can a dog that is on the ground contaminate food that has been cooked and is a got couple of feet above them (assuming they sit down or lay down at the table) My dogs are with me at my dinner table or even if i eat on the couch, they dont beg etc they lay and watch me eat or watch the tv, most of the time they seem more interested in neighbours, than my food!

    I think we'll have to agree to disagree on this one.

    I know all the dogs that are left at our local shops while their owners go buy their groceries. I love the community aspect of it and I have a hell of a lot more respect for their owners who include them in their daily activities than for those who keep their dogs in their backyard without any excercise or attention as if they're some piece of garden furniture.

    So instead of being responsible you would rather encourage owners to break the law, tie their animals outside a shop while they do their groceries - unable to supervise their animals at all, risking kids or adults getting bitten, their dog getting stolen, attacked by someone else's dog, attacked by another person and because they are tied they cannot escape??

    It's reckless, irresponsible, lazy and ignorant.

    The dogs should NEVER be left in the backyard all the time as a garden ornament. What I am saying is that the owners should be responsible enough to walk their damn dogs. Go for two freaking walks instead of one, sheesh it's not that damn hard!

    Apologies Beloz, I've been way out of sorts for a few days. No excuse, but I do want to apologise.
