We went to the beach this weekend and saw for the first time a lot of angry frustrated dogs on leads.
Dogs also need the freedom to play and run. Some of them love the water.
They are like little children. Keeping them tied up on such a large playing field is cruel and frustrating for them. It can turn a friendly natured pet into one that is frustrated, angry and vicious.
If the only reason that animals should be kept on leads is for the safety of beach goers, then perhaps the municipal law should allow for animals run and play on the beach if they are wearing muzzles.
