Townsville Bulletin - - LIFESTYLE -

LATELY it has been far too com­mon to spot a dog “leash­less”. I be­lieve this highly dan­ger­ous to the public and to the dogs them­selves.

Leashes were made for a rea­son, and should be used when­ever the ca­nine is out of its home. A dog is an an­i­mal and has a mind of its own. As a re­sult this means that they are never com­pletely pre­dictable.

Leads can price from only a cou­ple of dol­lars, and if you are not able to pur­chase one, I be­lieve you should NOT be a pet owner.

Chil­dren have been hor­ri­bly at­tacked and there­fore have feared dogs for the rest of their lives. This is not the dog that did the wrong thing but ac­tu­ally the ir­re­spon­si­ble own­ers who did not se­cure their dogs cor­rectly, or at all. Al­ways re­mem­ber…. DOGS BE­LONG ON LEASHES!
