I agree with the councillors’ views on dogs on leashes and poop and scoop. I am an avid trail walker, and see so many dogs let out of vehicles to run, with the owners not even carrying a leash.
They walk right past the bylaw sign. Dog urine and poop is plentiful.
Why even allow dogs in parks anyway? The Laurentian walking trail is a conservation area apparently, so why allow dogs to mess that up and scare away the wildlife, which I have seen?
Do you enjoy being at the beach after a dog has pissed on the park bench or on the grass? Do you allow your child to walk in the sand that a dog just pooped on?
The city made an off-leash park. Take your dog there. Those who choose not to are usually the ones who do not pick up their dog’s poop.
