Re: “Animal control steps up leash-law enforcement

Here is my issues with the leash law. First of all I believe in having a dog under control and well behaved. I am a dog trainer and I also train dogs for my own benefits of being a k-9 officer. With having to teach my dog to be obedient on my own time not always on the premises of the police department, I find it very hard to find a place I can do these things because of the high percentage of people going to the parks that allow dogs to be off leash. It's hard to train a young dog in these situations. In Idaho, which is where I am from and recently moved from. Training a dog off leash is permitted. It is also considered on a leash if under control by the owner using a e-collar. I agree that there are such cases that if the dog is not well behaved, the owner of dog should be cited for dogs being off leash. I also agree that those who are not responsible enough to train their dogs and don't pick up after their dogs showed be cited. I disagree that there are a bad breed of dog. It is bad owners, not bad dogs. I have trained many dogs over the years and while working as a vet technician also I encountered many different breeds. The dogs that most often had the bad tempers and would bite were small dogs, such as a chihuahua and cocker spaniel. The reason people don't hear about these bite cases is because they don't cause the damage that a large breed dog does. Nor are they reported. So in all reality the statistics out there are very wrong. Pointing at the pit bull, German Shepard, chow, Doberman and other large breeds is ignorance rather then anything else. These breeds are often owend by bad owners. Ones that think they need to make a dog aggressive for their own self gain. Anyway. I'm sure I will get a lot of flack for saying these things but honestly I am tired of people damning the dog verses the person owning the dog. They are the ones who should be held accountable. To me it's almost like saying guns kill people verses people with guns kill people. When in all reality it is just the opposite. Anyway. Sorry if I offend some people. That is not my intention. Want to merely give some of you that feel that it is a dog issue VS owner issue something to think about.

Thank you for reading
