If you have a well behaved dog, then being off the leash isn't going to be a problem. I don't have a huge problem with dogs off leashes, most dogs are pretty alright around humans anyway. If your dog listens to you and is behaved enough to not need a leash, then I don't see it proper place for the government to say you have to have one. Ultimately, make the owner responsible for everything and you can regulate it that way.
    #1. Why should I have to put up with your dog off a leash? Just because you know your dog is safe, do I? Does my leashed dog? My child that is walking with us?

    #2. How nice of you to take responsibility for the death of my child after your dog kills him/her...... makes me feel so much better.

    #3. Most States have a leash law. Dogs found off a leash in public in those States should be removed from their irresponsible owners custody and put up for adoption...... irresponsible owner should be shot, ok, jailed for harboring a dangerous nuisance.

    Re: When should a dog be on a leash?

    Any time a dog is off the property of it's owner, it should be on a leash.

    You didn't pose any questions. Made some hysterical hypotheticals and that's about it.

    I carry guns in public too...things could be used to kill; but still got them. Still carry them in public, still sell them, etc. I mean, come on, it's harboring a dangerous nuisance isn't it? Yet we dont' do anything about gun owners UNTIL they infringe upon someone else's rights; not before. Sorry, I don't buy the whole "won't someone please think of the children" crap. It's a crap argument with no weight to it.

    Humans are unpredictable and capable of doing damage...more so in fact than a dog. I don't see us on leashes.

    Except they do have leash laws specifically because dog's aren't predictable. I know unless I point the gun at someone and pull the trigger, it's not going to shoot them. You can't be certain when you're going for a walk with your 80 pound pitbull that he's not feeling like ignoring you today.

    What animal is predictable? The goldfish? Swim swim swim, nothing more. We're unpredictable. But you can know a dogs temperament and personality well if you're the owner. You'll know if you can keep your dog on leash or if it's safe to let him roam.
