Many cities have passed legislation that require dogs to be on leash in public areas. Purposes of a leash include: preventing animals from frightening or biting people or other animals, defecating and urinating in inappropriate places, endangering traffic, digging up lawns, causing other damage, getting lost, and getting away from owners. Leashes also provide a clear method of communication and ensure control during training of dogs.

“People call in and complain about dogs off their leashes in the parks, but it’s not an epidemic. If a dog is out in public, it should be on a leash.”

"But we also want to make our canines good citizens. To do that, we need to socialize them. Leashes have a tendency of creating aggression among dogs with other dogs."

This past week, I explored taking pictures of dogs on leashes in parks and on the street. I wanted to learn more information on leashes and try to find a few opinions on the negative and positive reactions of leashes. In addition, I wanted to explore the basic laws of keeping dogs on leashes.
