Community Walking Trail Is Not an “Off Leash” Area for Dogs and Other Pets!

Please remember the Community Walking Trail is NOT an “off leash” area for dogs and other pets! For the comfort and safety of others please keep your pets leashed when using the walking trail. The only place your pet can roam without the restraint of a leash is in your fenced yard or at the off leash dog park.

“Don’t worry mine is friendly” is a phrase everyone hears way too often.

Maybe ~your dog is friendly~ BUT, the trail (and the streets of town for that matter) are about everyone, not just you and your dog:

– someone else’s dog that is correctly on a leash might not be friendly and yours might cause an unnecessary conflict resulting in injuries for both dogs or owners

– someone might be scared of dogs or may not like dogs and yours goes bounding up to them (You don’t want to be afraid on the trail, why should they be?)

– your dog might get scared by something and react negatively and nip or bite a human or another animal

– there could be hazards that your dog won’t avoid without you guiding them on a leash

– you might miss picking up after your dog if it’s way ahead of you, which might be great for you, but cause an inconvenience for other walkers
