I was just wondering if I would be fined or cited for any reason (i.e.trespassing) if I was walking my dog on any of the QCSD properties. I have been walking my dog for the past 2 weeks along the sidewalks on school property and on the grassy islands in the parking lot. I do so after hours, I pick up after my dog, and I do not allow him near any of the recreational areas. There are no signs that state otherwise and there is nothing online that is Qtown relevant. So please, any information would be helpful. I would like to be somewhat educated on the actual rules and regs if I am ever approached by an officer or citizen.

Yes, as long as you're not doing any damage. If anyone says anything, be sure to get their name, but I doubt if anyone will.

If you're a tax payer, it's your property too.

Why not? As long as you pick up after your dog, it should be okay. Residents use the track behind the Freshman Center all the time.

But, don't walk across the fields during any sports practices!

If you're paying taxes? That's your property. Just don't treat it like a Renter. You own it :-). Today, anyway.

Trying to create a divide between homeowners and renters is classist and revisionist.

Renters brought that stereotype upon themselves.

Shove it Kline. People who do not own, for the most part, do not respect.

Stop interjecting nonsense where it doesn't belong. I think we've had enough of fools interjecting their nonsense on so many threads that most people have a sour stomach from it.

This thread is about someone asking if they can walk their dog on QCSD property. Even as a renter, you own it by proxy because the renter pays the landlord's taxes.

That's already happened with renters getting free education and property tax payers getting the shaft.

I have been walking my dog behind the high school for the past two years and have never had any issues. There is a sign posted on the field hockey field that says no dogs, but no one has ever said anything to me. I will let her off the leash so she can run as long as no one is around and if I do see people I get her back on right away. She's a good dog and wouldn't do anything, but I know how some people get uncomfortable, which is fine, I can respect that.

Just watch out for all the goose poop!

If there is anyone here who think its ok for them to use school property as a toilet for the pets. You have a serious mental problem! Taxes or no Taxes! Picking up after them or not! Walk them on your property! Have them do their business on your property. If you can't or wont, you shouldn't have a pet. Take FULL responsibility People like to make a connection between kids and pets. What would you do if a kid did the same? You'd say Sick, Dirty, disease. And Brainless!. And you'd be right. And that exactly what its is if you feel your pets have more right than young children who play in the school yard! And I would guess your pet is smarter than you are. Which is where the real problem is!

Are you serious? So let me ask you something.....do you wait for the rabbits, squirrels, deer and birds to do their business and then run and yell at them to do it on their own property? How dare the animals that live outdoors poop on school property!!! How dare they!?!?

Wanna talk about brainless? Get a grip. There is more goose $hit on those fields then dog crap.

Chris is right on the money.People think the world is a toilet for their dogs.If you don't have a yard for your dogs ,don't get a dog.Would it be ok for me to pee in your yard? Yes some pick up afterwards,but do they pick it up when the dog has the runs? No,they leave it.There is a difference between wildlife and pet dogs Sir .Im betting you walk a dog, and see no harm in the animal peeing and pooping everywhere.Oh that's right,the dog needs exercise.No ,it needs to go in its own yard,and ruin the owners grass.Simply put,if you don't have a yard,dont have a dog.

Ok. I get your point. But can you explain to me what you think the difference is between the dung of a wild animal and that of a domesticated one?

And if you had to pee that bad, I would hope that you would knock on my door first. I would gladly let you use the toilet.

I do have a yard and thankfully I own a dog that for whatever reason only likes to do her business at home. Sort of like a person ya know?

Manhattan residents and those in other apartment-only cities may have a problem with your viewpoint.

When I occasionally walk my dog, I'm cautious because I believe dogs can pick up diseases from other dogs when they linger over the previous disposals left on the ground. I just move along quickly - for the excercise - so my dog doesn't have a chance to leave a deposit or pick up any disease.

Yo why don't I just come shit in your yard, I have no problem dropping a nice steamy in your yard, or matter of fact on your windshield. It's been done before. People have the right to own animals no matter what the yard sit might be, some public parks even have poo stations set up for walkers with bags and trash cans, so if you really wanna beotch, do it over something more meaningful then a pile of poo that gets cleaned up

Now that your attention is taken, people do have the right on walking animals on public property, as long as it is not posted otherwise. It does not matter if you own rent or squat, people can walk where ever they please within legal boundaries. And the fact they clean up after the animal is a plus, cause how many lazy sacks do you know that do not clean. So take your issues up with them, not the respectful ones who walk and clean
