Why is it some people feel that they may walk their pet with no leash? I see it all day. Their dog goes in to other peoples yard and they could care less. I actually stopped someone today and told them their dog had to be on a leash. He said that he had already talk to an officer and they said it was ok. Well, its not. There is always stray dogs around getting into trash, causing racket and so forth. I do not let my dog run free, why should they? What else can be done about this. I know I am not the only one that feels this way about it. It should not matter if your right there with your dog, they should be on leash! You should not be able to walk around town with a loose pet, for their safety. They could be attacked or run over.

Dear Stacy the worst thing will happen to your dog if it comes into my yard is it will go home with a belly full of peanut butter cookies. However there a very few cases where if a dog take care of business or dump trash the onwer should be resonsible but otherwise your pet is welcome anytime at house.Please quit acting like a yankee democrat. Be a happy kid again.

I have to agree with Stacy. When I walk my dog through town or surrounding neighborhoods I use a leash. A lot of people arn't dog lovers and they don't want dogs running around in their yards. Also it protects the dogs from getting run over. I think it all comes down to respecting other peoples rights and being a responsible dog owner. Oh yeah by the way.......I'm a Texan

I like dogs but I like well behaved dogs.

My kids grew up fearful to walk our streets because of rednecks and their pitbulls running loose.

I don't like cutting my grass and stepping in a pile of crap and I don't like pickig up garbage pulled apart by someones little darling.

If you have the room and the dogs don't bother anyone let them run, if you live in a neighborhood where the dog has no room...either don't get one or look after it.

It amazes me that my neighbors dogs can bark all night with the law doing nothing but if my kids were on my deck playing loud music they would get hauled off to jail.

Sometimes you just have to do what you have to do to rectify a situation.

I have always been told if you live in the county there is no law requiring dogs to be leashed?

I know we have no enforcment here in Houston County.

It's always the bad owners that give everone else the bad name. Unfortunately when it comes to dogs, it appears most are bad owners.

I have a neighbors dog I throw balls and feed. He is well behaved and lots of fun. The two little yip yips next door shouldn't be allowed to breathe valuable air.

One day, I too shall feed them peanut butter

I love my dog too much to let him walk around without a leash. I have seen what cars can do to dogs... even the bigger dogs. I am lucky. I have plenty of space for my dog to run and play at home, when I am out there with him. I throw things (ball, stick, etc.) and he runs after them to bring them back so we can start again. When it is time for me to go in, he has to come in too. I take his toys in so that he is not tempted to stay out. Any other time, my dog is on a leash (unless he somehow sneaks out or gets off the leash and I have to go get him!).
I agree that dogs should be leashed for the dogs protection as well as for the safety and comfort of everyone.

I am talking about within city limits. I understand in the county there may not be the same laws as in the city. But there is more traffic in the city. Not only that put kids play on their bikes. Some kids will tease a dog then they will snap at them. Then what? Will you feed them peanut butter cookies then? No because the owner of that dog can be fined. Things happen all the time. I am just sick and tired of all the loose dogs here in town. I have dogs and they stay in a fenced yard. When one of these loose dogs come around we can not get ours to hush. It does cause a lot of noise in the day and in the night. Like I said before, its the law and it needs to enforced. For kids safety and for the dogs. You hear all the time about someone getting sued over their pet. Why would you put yourself at that risk?

Our dog stays with us. If we go to a tractor show or out in the public, she's on a leash. If we're at home, she knows to stay in our yard and we are with her in our yard. I don't like dogs or cats for that matter in my yard, especially in the flower beds. There is a leash law in Trinity and I have called the animal control officer several times and he has come and picked up the animals. I would suggest you call and ask the animal control officer to pick up the animal.

Stacy, I could not have said it better myself. I have caught a couple of neighborhood children in my yard throwing rocks over the fence at my dog. He is a large dog and, although very well trained, I fear he would bite them if given the chance. I have tried to reason with the kids and nicely explain this, but apparently their boredom is so overwhelming they can't help themselves. I've even talked to the parents who don't seem to care. Also, if you walk your dog in the neighborhood, please don't allow it to pee on vehicle wheels! Some people pay a lot for nice wheels and dog urine will ruin them. One more thing... what is up with people (kids and young adults) walking through other people's yards all the time? Is it really that physically exhausting to take 15 more steps in order to not walk through my carport, then 2 foot in front of my windows?????

One time a buddy of mine drove up the drive in a jeep to say hi. After shootin' the breeze for a bit he started to drive away with his dog on a leash tied to the roll bar by the back seat. I guess his dog liked me more cause next thing ya know he jumped out the back of that there Jeep and was hangin of the spare tire.....I started yellin and kickin up dust cause that fine pup was about to meet his maker and my buddy stopped and said "What tha Heck", and I pointed. Man he sure was embarassed and thankfull at the same time. Anyways, ya'll get my point? A leash sure is dangerous in the wrong hands......
