I thought that the dog owners were supposed to have their dogs under control at all times when they are walking them....

Too many dog owners, have pooches who are smarter than the master. - case in point: Ms. Snootiebaker, honestly believes her miniature "rat-dogs" are her kids; so longer leases mean she not only can't SEE where they are crapping, she doesn't actually believe they are Capable of such an act. - Mr. Crackline; otherwise known as the 'coward of the county', lets His "Mankiller" take him out for a drag when the sun is down, and the view into your windows are maximized. You know he's been on the prowl, because you step into a pile - before you step into your car in the morning.

Mace is a bit of overkill. What about citronella? Or vinegar water? It's too bad, but many folks don't realize that their little furry bundle isn't what others want to confront in a public setting.

Hitting them in the face with water is the recommended deterrent by trainers.

I agree leashes should be required when in public places even police dogs are held in check by a leash and they are well trained dogs.

Don't be surprise if you have to mace the owner after you maced their dog.

I agree also. I walk about 5 miles a day on the bike trail and free roaming dogs are far too common.

David, I could not agree more, but it is not just off the leash that is a problem, it is also those long leashes. Do these dog lovers not understand that their precious pooches could get hurt too? (They obviously don't care about humans.)
