Professional dog walkers may be banned from CRD parks

From today’s Times Colonist:

The Capital Regional District could be looking at putting a leash on commercial dog walkers who let loose the hounds in CRD parks.

View Royal Mayor David Screech brought the issue to the CRD parks committee after hearing complaints from residents who have encountered “packs of off-leash dogs” being exercised by professional dog walkers in Thetis Lake Park.

“I think when the off-leash rules were originally designed years ago, it was for an individual to go out with one or two dogs and walk their dogs,” Screech said.
