Leash your dogs

Leash your dogs

I am one of the many people who walk their dogs daily around the Northmoreland Park lake. All dogs are to be on a leash at all times. It's a great place to walk your dog and socialize them with all of the other animals and people.

Unfortunately, one person allows three Dobermans to run free, and they're terrorizing the walkers and joggers. This is unacceptable. People use the park to exercise and enjoy the beauty of the lake. This person might think this is OK, as “his puppies” don't bite. But neither does my dog, and he will remain on a leash as is required.

We who use the park daily would appreciate if this person followed the rules and quit terrorizing the innocent people walking there.

Everyone has been discussing this for weeks, and we would all appreciate it if this person starts abiding by the rules.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
