My dog was recently attacked and nearly killed by a lab that was not on the leash and the owner was with him. The lab shook my 7 pound dog with the intent to kill him, the owner watched in horror as I had to loosen the jaws of the lab so she would release my dog. My dog is not the same emotionally, and now shows signs of aggressive behavior, which I take responsibility for, and keep him on a leash. Dogs are not human, it is not in a dogs nature to always do the right thing, nor can we train them to the point that they are 100% predictable. As long as dog owners are ready to accept liability for their dogs behavior, financially and legally, then lets let them wander without leashes, until that time, NO WAY!
