Dogs off leash
About half of families in Oakville have dogs and 99% of them are friendly pets. Lots of families socialize with their pets, friendships are made around them. To spend so much manpower to harass people to try to force them to keep dogs on leash all the time (which is animal cruelty) just because few vocal citizens complain is unreasonable. Taking dogs to leash free parks is not a solution: many serious injuries to dogs occur there. Most dog owners are responsible and know when not to release their animals. The mandatory on leash law will not deter irresponsible owners with dangerous animals anyway.
I am sorry - but not only I need you to keep your dog on leash and muzzled but also off my property! most people do not walk their dogs - they just let them loose on the closest yard to do their business, again - I do not want to look through my window seeing pooping and peeing dogs ...
How about people actually walking their dogs, instead of just going to a leash free!
And ON leash at all times! So their dog doesn't attack another one, or causes an accident. Being responsible.
