I’m on the lead…

Let’s try to all be respectful and responsible and if you see a dog on lead, please call your dogs back and put them on a lead if you need to. It also stops your dog from getting into bad habits so a win-win for everyone.

There are many reasons why a dog may be on a lead. I have had numerous customers who struggle with off-lead dogs approaching their dogs due to owners who either can’t or won’t call their dogs back.

All dogs are different, each with their own quirks, fears, and anxieties.  As a community of dog owners, we all need to think about dogs who are kept on a lead and how we can respect them in a safe and happy way.
We’re teaming up with The Friendly Pet Nurse to raise awareness of the reasons why dogs are kept on a lead and how we can best respond to situations.

Top tip: If your dog isn’t great with recall, or if they love to play with every dog that goes by (like ours) just pop your dog on a lead until you’ve passed the dog on a lead.
Being kind and considerate to other dog owners who may be grasping at the lead in fear of any incidents, costs nothing. Yet the positive impact of such kindness and respect can be immense.
What are your thoughts on the campaign? Do you relate to any of the reasons?
