There’s nothing more terrifying than hearing “oh he’s friendly!” from someone roughly 30 yards away from their off leash dog that’s headed straight for me.

I don’t care how friendly your dog is.  I walk Zuni on a 6 foot lead, or have a long line on if we’re playing frisbee, and she wears her “Working Dog - Do Not Pet” vest every time we are in public.  There is a leash law in every single place I walk Zuni, who has major fear based leash reactivity and cannot handle meeting strange dogs face to face.  And since she is clearly a pit bull, it doesn’t matter that I take every precaution to keep her in my control, if she gets in a fight with an off leash dog she will most likely be the one that gets the blame.

I repeat, I don’t care how friendly your dog is.  If you cannot call your dog back to you in ANY situation, keep it on a leash.  For everyone’s safety.

Posted a pet sitting flyer on the apartment complexes bulletin board yesterday afternoon. Already have two jobs lined up.

Woot woot! I am bummed hours are getting cut at work but I’m looking forward to getting back into sitting, I really enjoyed it before I started working at Tarheel.
