    As new neighbors have moved into my small neighborhood it seems like my household is the only one that observes leash laws. One house in particular, directly across the street from mine, has several small dogs that are frequently roaming the streets. Today one of them almost kept me from returning home when I was walking my own dog – it was barking challengingly and advanced on us so I was concerned for my dog’s safety. Luckily the youngest daughter was nearby and shooed the dog back to its own yard. I don’t frequently see the adults of the other houses as we keep different hours, so I’m not sure how to approach them and let them know that their bad habits are impacting my life.

    There’s a good possibility that your town has a leash law. Check on this first before you do anything – the animal control officer may take care of it for you.
