Re: Laws on Dogs
"A yard is just a bigger cage."
That's what a vet said to me once. What he meant was that having a yard should not replace exercising your dog. Male dogs especially need to get out into the neighborhood to mark, to see who else is occupying their territory, and to learn about their surroundings. Keeping a male dog in a yard prevents them from doing what their instincts tell them to do.
That's no reason to let them wander; instead the critters need to get out with you on that leash a couple times a day. The particular dog that caused the quote above was a male Labrador Retriever I had just taken off a friends hands. The vet was telling me I had just taken on the responsibility to make sure this sporting dog got the right care and attention. It was a lot of work, but I'm convinced he was a better dog for it.
