Pros & Cons of Leash-Free Parks - McCann Professional Dog Trainers

Pros & Cons of Leash-Free Parks

If there were a Disney model for leash-free parks, it would be wonderful – good times, all the time. Lady and Tramp would be off in one corner whispering sweet nothings, hound dog Copper would be following his nose around the place and Pluto would be up to no-good, but harmless antics as the Dalmatians ran circles around the whole group.

Pure joy! Unfortunately, just as we don’t get the help of neighbourhood birds and squirrels while dressing every morning, we also don’t live in a world populated by Disney dogs and as with most situations, reality differs from fantasy.

With that in mind, we’ve come up with with this info graphic on the Pros & Cons of Leash-Free parks.

Hi! I'm Shannon Viljasoo and I joined the McCann team in 1999 while training Quincey, my wonderful and spirited Rottweiler, to have good listening skills. I'm the Director of Online Training and Content for McCann Professional Dog Trainers and I enjoy writing about dogs and dog training for the McCann blog. I currently share my life with 2 Tollers (Reggie & Ned) and I love helping people develop the best possible relationship with their 4-legged family members.
