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.
