    that blatantly ignore leash laws infuriate me. I love my dog and take here everywhere that she can reasonably go on a leash, like on walks around town, to the USPS drop off box, the outdoors atm, etc. If I'm going in to a store or restaurant I leave her at home. The number of times we have both been attacked by dogs large and small off leash has been ridiculous. Both of the recent times the owner of the dogs was indignant at me for being so cruel as to keep my dog on a leash. While I'm trying to pry their dog off of mine. The time before I needed stitches on my hand from the person's dog biting me. My dog is a big girl, but she is gentle and non-aggressive. The dog park is an off leash outdoors areas; we have places for off leash activity in this town. There is no excuse for walking off leash everywhere. There are reasons we have leash laws; leashes are for the safety and well being of the dog and the people and other critters around it. I wish the local PD would actually ticket folks for it.
