The 2,400-page plan released this month by the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, the country's largest urban national park, would mandate leashes in open spaces where dogs currently roam untethered.

YEAH for the leash law. Too many stories where dogs have attacked adults and children. I was camping one weekend and a total of four unleashed dogs charged our campsite on two different days. The owners did nothing, I got mace spray and will use in future camping trips. It was scary.

I would have some concerns for the safety of the dogs. There are too many cruel and unreasonable people out there!

Awwe, too bad. Alot of dogs don't know how to be civilzed towards other dogs while they are "off-a-leash", so I do "not" find this to be such a horrible law!!!!!!

I love watching my dogs play and run in the park, but I do believe the Leash Law is a good idea. It would mean my dogs remain safe from other dogs and other dogs wouldn't feel threatened by mine.

I'm not sure what to say about this. Maybe a leash law is good for the protection of the dogs and people around them.

Actually, this leash law should be in action all over...this area of Northern California could have a problem if they let dogs loose, kinda like other places then the DOG gets lost and the owner goes crazy.

LEASH laws to me are so important!!! Thank you Cher for this article at site, so love the photo there of the SF Bridge and love Northern California!

I would hope these laws protect the dogs from people who would hurt them.
