5 Reasons to obey the leash law (yes, I’m talking to you)

  1. It’s the law. At the risk of stating what should be obvious, if there’s a law in your town that your dog must be leashed (and under your control, not one or the other), put the leash on the dog. So what if you think the chances are slim that you’ll meet anyone in the woods? Does that mean you have the right to break the law, just because no one is looking?
  2. When your dog is under your control – meaning you have him on a leash – he’s less likely to get into something he’s not supposed to.
  3. Just because your dog is friendly doesn’t mean every dog is friendly.
  4. Not everyone you meet on the trail/in your neighborhood is physically able to withstand a dog jumping on them, even a nice dog.
  5. People have the right to walk in public areas without being confronted by loose dogs.
