    My mum is one of those people. she takes her pug in the fenced playgrounds around here when she takes dd and ds to the park even though she usually ties her up to a seat or something, it drives me nuts. Usually the poor pug is smothered by toddlers and kids and I feel sorry for it. But she doesn't get there is no difference to her doing it and someone with another breed of dog. She thinks pugs are the equivalent of people and should get special treatment .

    So people with kids have to look around and ensure its a dog free zone before entering?

    Dogs should not be off leashes anywhere is the bottom line. People have the right to be in public spaces, dogs belong on a leash or better still... In their own backyard.

    That is a bit extreme. Some people don't have big yards for their dogs i.e. city dogs so off leash areas are designed for people to have an area to let their dogs exercise/ play/train and socialise in.
    And so yes if people are concerned about dogs for whatever reason then maybe they should stay away from the areas that are designated as being off leash.

    Hang on. People should keep their dogs on leashes even in a designated off-leash area?

    Just on the off chance someone decides the dog park is a good place to take their kiddliwinks for a run?

    Im saying they shouldn't have designated off leash areas period! It should be law that dogs are on leashes at all times in any public space.

    There shouldn't be off leash areas. I thought I heard they were trying to enforce this, not sure but I'm all for it.

    Ahhh.

    I'll let the council around here know they should close down the dog parks and seize the tens of thousands of dogs that live in inner city Sydney.
