Not a fan of the elevator...

This is a discussion on Not a fan of the elevator... within the Puppy Help forums, part of the Dog Training and Behavior category; Thanks for that! What I don't understand is why did someone who us afraid of dogs get on the elevator with You and your dog?...

I don't even begin to understand why they'd come on. Think this time it was peer pressure, sometimes it's just because they're trying to be polite? But others...not a clue.

Had a chat with the obedience instructor about this today and apparently a large company that owns land in Ottawa has banned off-leash dogs on all their properties, which is why the city countered with off-leash parks and increased their number. Immigrants seem to not have domestic dogs in their old culture, so now it's a totally scary/alien thing to do, even though a lot of the city owns dogs.

Hmm... Interesting. My apartment building requires all dogs to be on leash and we have leash laws in the city, although sometimes people don't really pay attention to the laws. There's only one dog park (that I know of) in my city, and dogs can be off leash there. Otherwise they have to be on leash. But, given that most parks and walking trails here are near busy streets, I wouldn't let a dog off leash out of an abundance of caution.

Technically dogs are allowed off-leash on sidewalks here-and I've only seen one person able to do it. His dog doesn't always stay at his side but he knows to not go on the road. I think I'd be panicking the entire time, even if I knew I could intervene quickly enough.

The sad part is that Ottawa is huge for dogs. I'm likely exaggerating, but half the city probably owns a dog. so not having lots of space where they can go really sucks.

Now that I have a dog, I really wish I lived some where more dog-friendly. By that I mean, dogs allowed most places except inside restaurants. It'd be nice to be able to take my dog inside more than the local Petsmart/Petco and dog boutiques. I'm pretty lucky to have found an apartment building where literally everyone has a dog. : )
