    Ok, I know I'm going over old ground by reviving this thread but I really just wanted to vent. I just had a really awful confrontation with a large, intimidating man about his dog that was charging around the playground (I was with my 2 year old). I tried asking him politely to please put his dog on its lead and basically he told me I was overreacting and being unreasonable and generally got quite aggressive. Meanwhile he wasn't even able to call his dog to him to put the lead on (it was running all over the place). It was really awful and not what I needed at 39 weeks pregnant!

    I know, right?! I would write to the council but I don't know what else they can do. I don't think it's fair to have a fenced in playground in a dogs on lead area. I just wish people would have a little more respect. I hate confrontation and I always end up feeling crappy even though it was a reasonable request. Deep breath!

    That's just awful, sounds like the man was an idiot.

    Have we established what the laws are about dogs in playgrounds and/or parks? I'm assuming it would be governed by the respective Council. I want to know what the law is in Brissy, does anyone know?

    Yep. A-grade douche. I'm not sure about Bris Busy-Bee. I'm guessing it depends on individual councils. There are signs all over the park near me in Melb saying dogs on leads within 5m of paths and playground. It's also a Parks Vic site so I also get cranky about the disrespect for the native wildlife. Again, deep breath. Sorry for the rant!
