Leash Laws

dog_leash11Keep an eye on local law regarding licensing and leashing your dog. Most municipalities stipulate that the dog must be on leash, and many rural areas just say ‘under your control’, which is good news for those of us whose dogs have good walking abilities and recalls. Don’t trust your dogs’ recall completely. The one time he really needs to come…

But keep agility regulations in mind, too! You don’t want to miss a Q because of not slipping the leash back on after your dog completed the course, or you left a collar on during your dogs’ run. Check the rules of the venue before your enter the ring. Better yet, get in the habit of keep your dog leashed or crated at all times during a trial. That habit can spare you a lot of grief.

  1. Hi, I’m having problems loading your blog. roughly 50% on the article seems to load, and the rest is just blank. I am not really sure why…. but you may want to check it out. I’ll check back again later on, that could be my browser fault.

    • Hello- I’m sorry that you’re having difficulties! Nothing seems to be malfunctioning though, so it’s probably just a mystery of internet!

      Thank you for letting me know.
