Hi - could someone point me in the right direction to find out if there is a leash law in Royersford/Limerick? I looked on the township sites and didn't see a lot of info. I was charged by a dog that wasn't on a leash while I was out walking and the owner acted like it was MY fault. For what? Walking on the sidewalk? I carry pepper spray with me and had it out and was ready to use it when the owner finally decided to come get their dog away from me.
I love dogs, and cats, but I have been bitten before while walking and will not put up with it again.
Thanks for the information!

Entire state has a leach law

PA has what's called the dangerous dog law. inform the owner of this then next time, get a pic of the dog off leash & the owner & call the cops.
worst case scenario is the owner will be forced to put the dog down.

I live up that way & walk quite a bit with my dog & my kids. can you give a description of the dog & its owner?

Thanks Alvin - I will do that next time, I carry my phone so that will be easy. The owner kept saying that it was a 'nice dog'. Yeah, how the heck am I supposed to know that when it is charging me and barking? I hope that people will read this and understand that others don't know if your dog is 'nice' or not - I will protect myself if I feel threatened by a dog.
