Owners in San Diego Must Keep their Dogs on a Leash
Dogs and humans are constantly harmed because mindless owners leave their dogs unleashed. For years, dogs have been blamed for their owner's decision to leave their dogs off the leash. CBS News states that 4.7 million people are bitten each year because of dogs being unleashed. On the other hand, dogs are wild animals and deserve to be free. I believe that we should have more dog parks and have certain areas where dogs can stay unleashed. On the San Diego Injury Law website, it states every 40 seconds someone is calling for medical attention because of a dog and with more parks dogs will have more activities and rates of dog attacks will be less. Dogs are our best friends and we must build more parks for them.
Dogs are a part of our community and deserve a chance to be free. That is why we must build more parks for them to be free. Imagine staying cooped up all day and held back by your owner. This is how dogs feel everyday. Freedom is a large part in our community, state, and nation. Dogs should also be able to have freedom in their lives. The parks will have places where dogs can meet other dogs and enjoy time with their owners.
To make sure that these dogs do not misbehave, dogs should be tested annually to make sure they are trained and can do simple things like coming back to their owner and sitting. Owners should be certified to be dog owners. Afterall it's the dog owners that are responsible for leashing their dogs. This is why people in San Diego must be aware of this current problem.
We can not make more dog parks for the dogs without our community support. People in your community need to take part in trying to make this dog's dream real. They are there for us when we are sad. They are there when we need them most. Dogs have always been here for us. If we do not support our friendship with them they will become our enemy. They are there to make us happy. Now we must make a change and make them happy.
