    Would people just kindly stop letting their dogs run around loose? I was walking my dogs today and the whole time I was followed by another dog. So very annoying!!! :mad2: It's not strange to see a dog sleeping in the middle of a back road around here or even having your car chased by a dog. Though, I don't see dogs running around loose as often as I used too.

    Don't you have a local authority you could complain to? Over here we have local borough councils and dog wardens. I think you need to contact an authority in your area to see if they can help.

    I do sympathise with you as we sometimes have problems with off lead dogs over here but they usually have an owner with them. A dog out without it's owner is thankfully something I have not seen round here in over ten years. :)

    It's called animal control here and the animal control in my town doesn't always do much about loose dogs. If someone gets bothered enough by a dog, they will bring the dog to the animal shelter so the owner is forced to go to the shelter to get the dog back and pay a fine. I believe it would be legal if the dog was on my property.
