Yet another dog attack in Riverheights park !

Just happened to be doing dishes and looked out my window and saw three dogs going at it. Ever since a little girl was bitten by the play structure in the hand by a dog who was not on a leash the city finally put up some signs about keeping your dog on a leash . Obviously the same people do not believe that applies to their dogs . I won't even take my dogs to walk in that park for fear of coming around the corner and encountering a dog who is not on a leash Riverheights park is not a dog park!!. The next time I see a dog that is not on a leash I will call the city by law department. I don't know what good that will do remains to be seen because it hasn't done anything yet . Two summers ago two dogs fought to the point that one had to finally be put down from his injuries . A lot of little kids play at that play structure every day . What's it going to take in the end ?

attack?

That was hardly an attack. Most people are very careful with their dogs and most keep them on leash. Very seldom do I see dogs off leash and if I do they are well behaved and not near children.  
I agree it's not an off leash dog park but your post is highly exaggerated.

Yet another dog attack

When a dog who is not on a leash bites a young child do you still call that exaggerated ? Almost everyone in this area knows whose dog that was . Obviously these were your dogs that were involved today by the sounds of it . It's not a dog park read the signs that are posted and if I see your dog without a leash I will call the bylaw officer immediately .

not my dog

Sorry you assume wrong. I saw what you referred to and you are very much exaggerating.  
It is tragic that a child was ever biten. Please don't misunderstand me.

1 dog was off leash

Also, please report the facts. There was only 1 dog off leash which is what caused the little dust up that you call an attack. Have a great day! I look forward to seeing you and your family enjoying our lovely park very soon!  
Take care.

Yet another dog attack

First off Lloyd if you read the original post I made I never mentioned once that all three dogs were off the leash . And no you will never see me and my family in that park . You can call it a dust up if you want because they were your dogs but most people would want to stear clear of those kind of confrontations. Like I said if you follow the rules posted by the city then these "dust ups" can be avoided. By the way one of the by law officers lives in this area so you might want to be like most people and follow the rules.

since when has exaggerated posts and wrongful accusations ever helped a situation?  
If off leash dogs bother you so much then make your phone calls to proper authorities but assumptions and rants WILL NOT solve your "pet" peeve issues

Yet another dog attack

Like I said if I see dogs in this park without a leash I will do my part and call the Bylaw Officer. If you abide by the posted rules then you have nothing to worry about.

No off leash dogs means ... NO dogs off their leash.

As a frequenter of other dog parks, all it takes is one dog that is off leash, to cause havoc with the other on-leash dogs. The dynamics of some off & some on-leash dogs creates problems, no matter how well a person's dogs usually behave.

No

It is not the same dog. My dog is the one who ran out into the walkway a couple weeks back to your two leashed dogs. We were visiting and having a BBQ, he accidentally got out while we were going in and out. Not sure if he felt territorial or your dogs reacted to him running up to them but either way we take responsibility. We don't live in the area, just didn't want my dog blamed. I apologized at the time and glad the barks were worse than the bites.

yet another dog attack at river heights school

Hello, I'm just wondering if it against city bylaws to any dogs off leash unless you are at a proper dog park, well behaved or not? The reason I'm asking is if someone should get bit and your dog was not on a leash, and it goes to court, is it not the owners fault? I'm just curious. Thank you.

leash laws

Pretty sure it states that unless your in your yard that is fenced or a dog park than leashes are needed. The leash must also be worn from vehicle until inside the park. These laws are for both animal and human safety

Thank you

I just wanted to thank Skinny Moon for raising the obvious. Dogs should be leashed except for designated (off leash) areas. I still maintain that the original post was full of hyperbole and exaggeration, but a read through the other comments confirms that not everyone is unreasonable. Lastly, not my dogs. Thanks!

Yet another dog attack

Well Lloyd you can call me unreasonable or exaggerated or anything you want doesn't really matter to me cause I really don't care. I call it like I see it and in 15 years of living in this park I have seen an awful lot and not just unleashed dogs. My main concern is for the young kids playing in the park some of them have no idea how to handle an unleashed dog when it approaches . There are a lot more ethnic people in the park now with kids that may or may not have ever seen or experienced any dogs in their culture . There is a lady who brings her dogs into the park every day and most times they are never on a leash. She was standing right beside the sign on the pool house today that clearly says "dogs must be on a leash" what do you say to that Lloyd? Is she beyond the rules? Is she better then the people who follow the rules? One of these days with all the little kids and all the leash less dogs there will be a tragedy. I for one would like to prevent it from ever happening.
