All dogs should be on a leash in a public space.


I can’t believe I’m about to do what I’m about to do, but...

You think all dogs should be on leashes... at the beach?!


I can't believe I'm about to say what I'm about to say, but....

I agree with Napacat. Who knows when an animal is going to go rogue?

Not that hard at all was it.

Indeed...but don't you know certain owners are special. Their dog is the best trained ever. Would never harm anyone. And thusly they have the right to walk them without a leash.
A properly trained dog is as safe on a leash as off one.

Unfortunately, proper training of dogs is almost non-existent.

So, in general, I agree with you guys. I know several exceptional owners and their animals who I would trust off leash in any circumstance. My last Lab is an example. I could give her the sit/stay and she'd drop at 100 yards. She would not move for a Porterhouse or a squirrel.

I've been to Carmel Beach several times and enjoy watching the dogs off-leash having fun. I might see 1 out of 20 dogs on a leash and generally with a muzzle. Otherwise, they are romping around, catching Frisbees and tennis balls. I've never seen them take a crap, pee, or growl at another person or another dog.
Playing with dogs on a beach or at a park is a joy. This isn’t about rotweillers, etc. But the idea that a golden retriever playing frisbee on a beach with its humans is a threat is so bizarre to all of my experiences. Obviously well trained docile dogs are a must for off-leash. But no one in the history of Earth has ever exclaimed “look out! It’s a mini poodle!”

We have a cocker spaniel. He is very nice to us. Doesn't like other people. Growls. If you were to visit and put your hand down to pet him, he'd at least growl, probably nip.

Some of my best memories are time spent with my lab at dog beach in San Diego. He would get so excited when we got off the freeway because he recognized the exit.

I think that's the key here. Some beaches (and parks), like Dog Beach, permit dogs to be off-leash. Unless it's permitted under the local regulations, dogs should remain on leash.

That said, I can see situations where locals know that a dog is well behaved and no fuss would be created from having the dog off leash.

Supreme Court upholds ridiculous and petty provincial protectionism. Mad


What Supreme Court? What decision?



Not everyone lives in the US Irwin. Cool

A guy was caught bringing beer from another province in a sting operation and he was fined. He appealed to the highest court in Canada claiming that under the free exchange of goods that protected in the constitution between provinces, he should be allowed to bring in products from one province to the other. The Supreme Court unanimously ruled that the provinces do have the right to limit the interprovincial transport of f alcoholic beverages and they don’t consider them as ´free trade goods’ within the free trade agreements between provinces.

Don’t agree with the decision myself.

Here is a link with a more precise synopsis.

What Supreme Court? What decision?[/QUOTE]

That's why I inquired!
I recall the story of a smart-ass lawyer from New York (redundant?) stopped in a speed trap as he drove through rural Georgia. He went to court on his speeding ticket. He asked the officer who gave him the ticket if it were true that the officer got a percentage of the fines from all tickets paid. The officer said that it was true, and that he got 20% of each fine.
The lawyer jumped up and said to the presiding judge, "I move to dismiss the charges. The Supreme Court has said that this is unconstitutional and a violation of due process!" The judge said, "What Supreme Court are you talkin' 'bout?" The lawyer said, "Why, the S. Ct. of the United States." The judge said, "Whew. I thought you were talkin' 'bout the S. Ct. of Georgia. Motion denied."

Love this! And honestly doesn't seem that far-fetched.

D’oh!


Not that it isn't done, but if you get stopped for something and they find out you're moving alcohol to Utah, you can be fined. I have heard people driving to Wyoming to buy alcohol go to a place to hang out before heading back to avoid cops watching out for them after leaving the liquor store.
