I am not a dog owner at present, but have lived with dogs much of my life.
I think it is about time dog owners were given better facilities to allow their dogs to run offleash. A well exercised dog is much better behaved than a dog who only gets exercise on leash or on hard surfaces. Every dog should have the opportunity to catch a stick on grass - not dirt.
I wish the best to this dog owner group and hope to see some better use made of our parks for dogs.

Greer Park has a pathetically tiny dog run, it's so small a large dog can hardly turn around in it!!!
I always thought it was an opportunity for dog owners to have asked for the newly landscaped area of Greer Park adjacent to the frontage road to H.101. Unfortunately, not nearly enough dog owners stepped forward to lobby for it, so that was a big opportunity missed.
Perhaps that section of Greer Park could be opened up to dog owners from 8:00 am - 10:00 am, I never see anyone walking or using that newly landscaped area of Greer Park, which I walk by regularly.

When the local dog owners quit leaving their dog's crap on my yard and sidewalk, I'll be more inclined toward a proposal like this.
