Oi, dog owners! ever heard of a collar & lead? you place collar around your mutts neck (tighter the better) and then you attach the lead to the collar, very simple. You now have control over your dog instead of having to stop and try to get hold of it when a cyclist or horse rider approaches, Less chance of Rover getting hurt too. No point tutting either, most bridle paths/waggonways are shared usage.
