I should be able to walk my well trained dog off leash in suitable areas. Dogs need to be excercised!

Dogs need to run around freely just as much as humans do.

I think it is grossly unfair on responsible dog owners to be ostracised by the Council in the community in this way. Parks are mostly frequented by dog owners. Walking helps their mental health amd physical heath. You won't get that pacing around a small enclosure that is usually in a unreachable corner of a park. One reason for the by laws is that the public can allegedly be hurt by a dog off lead. However the by law states that dogs can go off lead in housing estates where more incidents of this happening has actually occurred. Along with the danger of a dog off lead running into traffic in a housing estate and coming across people that are actually afraid of dogs is so much higher that when in a park walking around. The whole thing is demonising dog owners. You are meant to be a good responsible owner by exercising your pet but you can't even bring it to the shop now and tie it up for 2 minutes cos that is no longer allowed. Oh yes Fingal County Council I will get a dog and be a loving dog owner by your standards and let the poor thing rot out the back garden and then wonder why oh why did the poor thing become vicious? Oh yes coz I played by the rules and didn't give the poor animal adequate exercise. All the while I will become obese and probably mentally I'll and cost the state more money by having to claim sick benefits and have hospitals stays for heart problems and diabetes. Cop on Fingal County Council!!!!!!!

Dogs are not born with a leash. It's at the owners discretion to control their dogs.

it is unfair to penalise responsible dog owners who keep their dogs under control
