Why is it that the only time my service dog has to be on leash is when I take him on a walk in an open space park. When he's in public around kids nobody worries about him but when I take him out for a walk the park rangers freak out. There like your dog could bite anybody at any second and all this other mindless stuff. So I tell them "Your the only one that thinks that and you don't know the first thing about my dog". Since he is a pit bull mix I have had police dog trainers show up at places like the gym to check him out and they all say the same thing Jethro is a stud, he's better off leash than on. The kids all love him even people that are scared of dogs tend to like Jethro, after a few weeks. This is still America right?
