The park has been around for years and years im shocked there are not places like that in america, there is nothing but woods here though

its really the only place a dog can be off leash in a trail without being in serious trouble here, if its just a small dog they wont mind but if you walk around with a gsd here off leash people will get very upset.
Where I live right now, we have tons of open space trails where dogs are allowed off leash if specified, but the dog must have a "green" tag in order to be off leash on open space trails.

In order to get the "green" tag the owner must watch a video and be able to have recall on their dog. That's not to say that some people won't fudge the system and get a "green" tag under false pretenses but for the most part here the owners are pretty responsible.

I would hope that most responsible dog owners knowing that their dog would have an issue with chasing dogs or humans would restrain them once they would see someone on the trail, but that's just me.

Sorry to all you joggers out there, but I really wish you would not jog on off-leash trails. It makes for a nerve-racking walk knowing someone could quickly come up upon us, Molly would not react well especially if it was a jogger without a dog.

My daughter's response to this would be "go to the gym".

why does having a dog with them make a difference to you just curious?

I am guessing that a jogger with their own dog might typically be more pet friendly,have a better vibe, not fearful when seeing another dog. Also if the jogger's dog ran ahead and my dog sensed it, it would be a warning that the owner is coming, not so startling.

Today I went to get my car tire repaired and took Molly. She warmed up right away to the service writer, licked him and everything - turns out he has a 1.5 yr old male GSD. Sometimes dogs can sense other dog lovers.

I guess you can tell we've had joggers startle us that seem to come out of no where.

did she ever bark or charge them? I figure if the jogger has a dog even if a dog normally would bark at a person they would ignore the person and still concentrate on the dog the person is with.


I use to know a fear aggressive border collie but he was never fear aggressive when my old gsd was around him with me for some wierd reason. Not that i ever pet him or anything.

Yes, when she was younger. Joggers running alone.
