I break the law at every course I play that requires leashed dogs. Don't get me wrong, my dog is leashed, I'm just not holding on to it. I do this because I feel the law is there to protect people from irresponsible dog owners. I put in the time with my dog as pup and even still do to this day. She is well behaved, stays within 10-20 feet of me unless i tell her to go lay down in the shade. Not chasing anything (animals, people or anybodys discs) I have zero fear of my dog doing anything out of line to cause harm. If that happens well then I will have to live with those results, but i'm not blindly following the rulles for the sake of rules.
Oh my. Letting a dog run around with a leash on is far more irresponsible than not leashing it altogether. It is a good way to hurt your animal. *shakeshead* When a child sneaks up on your dog, laying down in the shade, startles it and get bitten in the face, it is not just you living with the results. "You have no fear of your dog doing anything out of line"....others likely do. And you lack this fear from the position of ignorance. You have no real idea of what your dog will do in new and unfamiliar situations. This post defines entitlement. I love dogs, irresponsible owners, not so much.
