Glad you only got a warning.
We have a leash law here in the state, but it clearly states that the dog must be under control, so you can work your dog off lead, but but have to be able to demonstrate control. If I have a girl off-lead in town, they are generally heeling. Just recently I have been allowing Babs to walk close to me, but a little behind, and I do giver her the GO TO MY CAR command, which is totally off leash.
But the parks say dogs must be on leash. So, if you want to work your dog off lead in forrests, train it to hunt, and buy a hunting license.

|katro||Eek, I will have to keep this in mind. I'm in DuPage but really close to Cook and go to Cook more often (they have better forest preserves anyway in my opinion)!|

Haha I almost got busted by the lake county forest preserve cop too! Except he was riding around in his car ON the TRAIL! And I had Berlin off leash.. And was trying to get a picture. The cop was laughing and was pretty cool about it. I just said I was trying to get a picture without the leash. They are cracking down though!

We went for a walk from our house to a cook county forest preserve and back. First off our ecollar transmitter is lost? I looked everywhere and it may have dropped out of m pocket?
We did our walk using our new sprenger collar, Apache ran around in the tall grass and found her ball wherever I threw it. She cheated a couple times and got wet in the lake but its all good. We got around the lake and were doing some Platz while I walked away with the ball. She was staying 50 yards from me when I noticed the forest police in the lot I went back to her and picked up the leash and continued on towards home.
The cops were very nice, she was a young woman with a tatoo on her neck She told me they saw that my dog is well behaved but there are bad dogs too and it only takes one bad dog to start a fight, and they are on a crackdown. They let me go, I said thanks for the warning and we were free to go.
