Why people don’t like your dog in public places

July 24, 2016

It’s because too many dog owners are irresponsible about cleaning up the crap, leashing their animals, and keeping them away from other people. It you can’t (or won’t) control your dog and aren’t willing to clean up its poop, don’t bring it to parks and other public places.

Just this Sunday I was at Wingfield Park in downtown Reno with family members, enjoying the shade of a big sycamore tree and playing in the river with my granddaughter. Along came a couple with a dog, who sat down in the shade in front of us. Upon getting up to leave, their dog laid a big pile just a few feet away from our group and they just walked off. My wife witnessed this, as did a man with another nearby group. When confronted about picking up the poop, the couple claimed that their dog didn’t do it despite the other people who were right there. They kept on walking. So you tell me why people don’t want your dogs in our parks where children and families are trying to enjoy a day of fun?

I’ve talked about this in the past and see that I will probably be doing so again in the future. Refer to “It’s the law – leash your dog and scoop its poop” for more about irresponsible dog owners in Washoe County.
