    I’d fight that charge. I run my dogs on e-collars. They are not “at large”.

    Not being argumentative Trimmer, just saying.

    The leash requirement is to maintain care and control of your dog. An e-collar would essentially fullfill that requirement and still be in compliance of the intention of the policy.

    Municipalities in almost all cases can not wave provincial laws but they can expand on them at their own discretion and make them more stringent. Game laws are here for a reason, to be used and adhered to in conjunction with common sense.
    If I have an empty highway, common sense says I could go faster then the speed limit without hurting anyone, but I am still not allowed.
    I do understand that a beagle is not going to chase a rabbit with a 6' lead, but the reasoning behind the leash law is to protect all people from the odd idiot that has no common sense with his untrained rotty or pitbull that he says he is hunting with. All he needs is a gun and some orange and his dogs can go run wild.
    Sadly laws are mandated to protect all but common sense and respect are not.

    Rules- laws, are made because of the lowest common denominator, not the highest.

    I can understand the need to demonstrate care and control of your dog in a multiuse area I'd be happy if the guide line was amended to read leash or e-collar.
    If an advocacy approach is to be made, I would suggest leaving e-collars out of it. We can try to educate and say "beeper" or "static stimulation" all we want, but those outside of the dog world will only hear "shock collar". Put that in the rules and the local animal rights crowd (which is very vocal) will erupt.

    One would have to assume they have enough on their plate shutting down hunting if that was the case. I'd imagine they would be in favour of freeing dogs from their shackles and allow them to run free

    It states in their booklet I linked to the forum that Provincial laws apply, but then lets a hunter use a retriever off leash but not a beagle.

    So basically if your using a retriever you are good, if your using a beagle your suddenly a trespasser.


    That's just racist LOL
