I seem to be noticing more and more lately this propensity for humans to show how "obedient" or "cool" their dog is when they are OFF LEASH! I'm not talking about roaming free in a dog park where this off leash behavior is completely acceptable, I'm talking about neighborhoods, hiking trails and local parks. Me and Scarlet have been charged at many times in our own neighborhood while walking. AND when one of the owners tried to get his dog back, and the dog didn't listen, when he caught up with him...he whacked him.....WTF? They are DOGS! Smart?...absolutely, logical?...not usually...they are DOGS! I can tell you, Scarlet is a very friendly dog. Loves people and other dogs. when she is charged at, however by an off leash dog...not so much. And she is only 15 pounds, so being charged at by a 75 pound dog is quite the liability. I was also saddened to hear of a Yorkie in my neighborhood who was struck and killed by a car because her humans insisted she didn't need a leash while roaming their street. NJ has leash laws every township can have different rules. For your dogs safety, keep your dog on a leash. It's the law, and can help you control any situation better. Just because your dog is friendly, off leash he may approach an unfriendly dog and get hurt. And not everyone loves dogs. Perhaps it's a person that doesn't want to get confronted by a dog they don't know.
If you are an off leash fan, head to the dog park. Or bring your dog to one of this spring/summer's Dogs Gone Wild events at Cook's Pond in Denville, where off leash behavior is welcomed, but when walking residentially, or allowing your dog some outside time, leash your best friend. For their safety, protection and security.
Keeping your dog off leash doesn't show your dog is smart, it shows you are stupid. Keep your dog safe while walking. On their leash...
