Dogs should have off-leash time, safely.
People should be able to walk without fear of being jumped on or even touched nicely by loose dogs.
I've seen the following scene repeated way too many times. It's embarrassing for all of us who love dogs, want them to have safe off leash time, but who also respect the fears and concerns of other people to read these incidents:
Not all live with it happily. As Troup walked across a grassy hillside, a pair of small, off-leash dogs rushed up to the leashed Chino, causing him to startle and yank his owner off-balance. The dogs' master, a tall man in plaid shorts, glared at Troup through a pair of shades, a cigarette dangling from his lips.Thoughts?
"This is actually an on-leash area up here," Troup said.
"I'm aware of that," the man replied. "Fuck you."
