Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

I AM ap­palled at the lack of cour­tesy from some dog own­ers. A few sim­ple things would go a long way to make it a pleas­ant ex­pe­ri­ence for all.

When pass­ing other dog own­ers with their dogs, please re­strain your dogs on a leash un­til there is enough space be­tween both, where you can un­leash.

I am sick and tired of un­re­strained dogs bound­ing up to me, scar­ing me and my dog. I don't know what your dog is go­ing to do.

Then some own­ers say, "oh it's only a pup or it won't bite". Hello, I'm not a mind reader. An an­i­mal’s be­hav­iour can be un­pre­dictable.

Please use some common sense and re­spect other dog own­ers and their an­i­mals. Name and ad­dress sup­plied.
