Dogs are family too!
We the following are requesting a change in the rules in regards to dogs being on a leash at all times when outside. We understand there have been problems in the past with pens and chains/cables. However instead of punishing the entire park how about punishing the ones that are causing the problems. Our concerns are as follows:
- if someone is holding a large dog on a leash and something catches its attention the dog is going to run towards it and may end up getting away from the owner. Thus causing a possible injury to someone or the dog itself.
- it is not practical to be able to hold a dog on a leash while you eat, cook, visit etc
- this is a family centered park and most dog owners consider our pets to be family so it is like saying leave your toddler in the camper or have them on a leash.
- We think the logical solution is to allow pens, cables and chains and when dog owners are not being responsible or there are complaints against certain people give them a warning and then a fine if the problem persists. And if need be ban them from the park. There is always an alternative to a problem if it is looked upon in anothers point of view.
Thanks for your time!!
