Press: Follow The Dog-Gone Rules

Take a walk on Tubbs Hill or the North Idaho Centennial Trail. It's almost guaranteed you'll meet someone with a dog, and many times, the dog won't be on a leash. So, man's best friend will come running toward you, the intruder, sometimes barking, sometimes growling. Here, most often, is what the owner will say:  “Don't worry, he doesn't bite.” “He just wants to play.” “He's friendly.” Somehow, in the owner's mind, that makes it OK for the dog to roam free. That makes it fine for the dog to charge up, chase after you. That makes it no problem for Spot or Rover to romp and bounce in front of anyone who comes its direction.
