Keep dogs out of Nelson’s downtown

No one wants to be jumped on by a dog the size of a great dane or Irish setter and possibly fall as a result.

I like dogs, well behaved dogs.

For all those who complain they cannot walk their dogs on Baker Street, I would remind them that the dog by-law came about because dogs were not kept on leashes. Many irresponsible dog owners did not stop their dogs from rushing at people, jumping on them, pulling at their clothes, sniffing their bottoms, and last but not least not picking up the dog dirt on the sidewalks.

No one wants to be jumped on by a dog the size of a great dane or Irish setter and possibly fall as a result. No one wants little children to be frightened or bitten. Irresponsible dog owners spoiled the use of Baker Street for all the careful, thoughtful dog owners.  Blame them not our city councillors. I say keep the dog by-law as it is.
