A word about off leash. It doesn’t mean out of control. You must be able to recall your dog if you are going to let it off leash in these situations. Even in off leash parks, there can be people and dogs who don’t want your dog racing towards them or jumping up on them. Teach your dog to come when called before heading out to an off leash area. Please be responsible and considerate of other park users.
