No bad dogs, just bad dog owners

I’ve been following the issue regarding unleashed dogs since the attack of a resident’s dog last year. It has piqued my interest because I had to deal with this issue before. My husband and I moved here 2 years ago from Tahoe City, which is also in Placer County. No one there kept their dogs in. It was awful! My dogs were attacked often. My kids were chased. They’d come into our garage and on our deck and pee on our stuff. They tore up my yard. There were many times when I nearly hit a dog or slid off the road on the snow because of a loose dog. There is a modified leash law there but not enough officers to enforce it. Every time I went outside I wondered if again my dogs would be attacked. I even had trouble when dogs were with their owner. The owner clearly had no control of the dog. I love dogs and have had dogs my entire life and there is no such thing as a bad dog. Just bad dog owners. Barbara Hall, Auburn
