There are several issues raised by allowing dogs in the Montini Preserve, many of which have already been discussed in public forums.
While many dog owners are responsible, there is a percentage of dog owners who do not feel the need to leash their dogs, or clean up after them.
Who will fine the owners who let their dogs run free? Who will clean up the trails of dog poop left by that smaller percentage who don’t feel obliged to follow rules?
Historically, people on trails where dogs are banned, or should be kept on a leash, are hesitant to say anything, fearing a confrontation with someone who clearly doesn’t care much about the opinions of others or the consequences to others of their actions.
