Question DetailsAsked on 7/28/2014

its not cool for people to disregard leash laws. i have to go another route to walk my leashed dog because.

Law breaker said, " my dogs friendly, as dog locks eyes with my coming towards us" also, my dog is protective over our baby! This was 6 months ago. They continue letting their dog run in front when they are outside. First of all their dog might very we'll be friendly, my little leashes dog could be really not friendly. I'm older and am not really up to trying to protect my dog and me when their friendly protective unleashed dog tries to defend their child! I did scold co-owner recently because I was really scared and was try to prevent an "ACCIDENT" that could maybe happen. Wow, don't do that....just call hoa and pet control. I haven't done that yet because I would love to see him settle down, reevaluate the incident.

Normally, if you provide animal control with the offender's address they will send a written notice (with no reference to your name) warning them to control their animal and obey the laws.

A second complaint (in which the name of you, as the complainant, generally IS public) can lead to a visit from animal control to the offender and a fine.

Other solution, depending on how stable you are on your feet and strength, is carry a walking stick that you can use to block the other dog or, in the event of an attack, hit it.

Another solution (check your local laws about possession and especially about concealed carry) is carry bear spray - except for a trained attack dog in some cases, you can be sure it will stop an attack and also that dog will never come near you again. Just be sure to get a holster to put it in so you do not accidentally trigger it and spray yourself or your dog. I have one neighbor who accidentally triggered it in his pants pocket by bending over - needless to say, he never did that again !
