Jenny D. Williams’s website http://www.shouldileashmydog.com/ offers some great resources that will help you assess whether or not your dog should be on a leash. Listed below is a short-link to an infographic that you can use to assess your dog. This visual decision-tree (see below) will give you a great way to assess if your dog and your community will be safe in various scenarios where you might allow your dog to be off-leash. If you frequent public areas where dogs are required to be off-leash but are often not, you might want to suggest they print this graphic as a poster to help educate people on what it means to be a responsible dog owner.
