A dog park should have strict rules to keep everyone safe. Also to respect the ones who do not want the dog park.All dogs should have a muzzle on at all times.This will prevent dogs bites.Also it would prevent the dogs from barking so it would not disturb the community. A community vote should take place before building a dog park.It is very expensive to build a dog park.So to be fair since the tax payers have to pay for that reason there should be a vote.There should also be a vote on the rules so everything becomes legal and respects the community. Those are my reason why i think a dog park in the city is a good idea.property value would go up.Rules could be added to insure everyones safety.Also to keep everything fair and equal a community vote should take place to keep everything
Not only that, but canines save many human lives everyday trying to make a safer place in the community. Many people say that too many dogs are being used instead of humans and that they should be looked at as officers not equipment. Back to the other argument, people say they may be shot in the line of duty, yes they may that's the price they could possibly pay for serving. But officers pay the same price that they do, these dogs are not being used as equipment all these dogs have rightful owners that take care of them and provide them with a lovely home and treat them as another officer of the law. Even dogs that go to great risks in combat can even be awarded the medal of honor for their bravery.
Foer's essay analyzes his city's complex civic situation regarding dogs and parks "...On December 5th the Board of Health will vote..." (Foer 214). That situation initiated a conversation about his dog and then a more broader conversation on human/animal relationships "Our various struggles-to communicate, to recognize and accommodate each other's desires-simply to coexist..." (Foer 215). Foer states that dogs perhaps don't belong in the city "it's easy to forget just how strange it is that dogs live in New York in the first place" (Foer 214). Given that the city has such limited open-space this might actually be true and it gives readers a sense of what what dogs in urban areas have to deal with. He then reveals to us the negative things his dog George does "As it turns out, she[George] is a major pain an awful lot of time... She mounts guess, eats my son's toys, is obsessed with squirrels..." ( Foer 214-215).
There are those people who are aginst bringing their dogs with them to work. They push the argument that not all people are fans of dogs, and that they wouldn't feal comfortable around them. They also bring up the issue of not knowing the temperments of all dogs, so they wouldn't know whether a dog would behave in the workplace or not. A statment of a local employee in a survey about this subject said, "Even pets that are well-behaved at home may act unpredictably in a new enviroment or around unfamiliar people." (Against Bringing Dogs to Work)
Consequently, these programs lead to a surplus of animals. Zoo enclosures can only hold so many animals so this surplus of them makes the living conditions even worse. On the contrary, it is cool to see animals that you would not normally get the chance to see, but despite this, animals need to be well taken care of in a good environment. Animals should not be taken out of their home to become an attraction for people. They should be taken out of their home only to be helped and then
Dog bans have been a controversial issue in modern years. Some believe that action needs to be made to protect humans from certain aggressive dog breeds and others believe that attacks result from poor care. The author of “Dog Ban Only Solution to Attacks” expresses his opinion on supporting the bans. He supports this using several cases of anecdotal evidence and quotes, and tends to get emotional in several paragraphs. The article wasn’t very well written in my personal opinion and I disagree with his support for banning specific dog breeds.
Having public dog parks inside cities is a great idea simply because the benefits out-weigh the consequences. I believe this because a public dog park would raise property values, lower the amount of dog-bites, and create a safe pleasant area for people to let there dog run free. An argument against the dog park may be that "It would cost taxpayers too much money!" but I say not. The reason is a dog park would raise property value in the area.
Shawn Levering, Lady 's owner, would oppose my position. He would point out that if it was up to him he would not go through with spending all of the money to save Lady. On one hand I grant that Shawn Levering makes a good case, I still maintain that pets are worth spending the money on. They depend on you and need you to help them in need. In conclusion, I do not agree with Bilger’s idea that we spend too much money on our animals.
We can put all these rules into affect and try to stop it in every way that we can, but who's to say it will actually stop? Getting rid of a certain fighting breed, giving dog breeders and animal shelters ways to look for signs of people that fight dogs, and start making it mandatory for dogs to be microchipped are all great ways to prevent the fighting of dogs. The dog fights may not ever go away, but there is a a chance that it could decrease significantly if we put these rules into affect. Dogs don't deserve to be treated like play toys to just hurt and abuse for no reason, dogs are supposed to be loved and cared for. Having a dog is a privilege not a right.
My goal is to help my community by providing the alternatives to solving the matter of the amount of stray dogs while also lowering the kill rate for those dogs that have not been properly treated or adopted. A big part of the problem lies with the lack of government funds for the animal shelters in Puerto Rico. The government only provides $1.5 million in seed funding to create animal services for all 78 municipalities. All the while these animal shelters are filled to capacity, which means the death rate goes up for these “rescued” dogs so only a handful more can be picked up off the streets. There are about two hundred thousand dogs roaming the streets and neighborhoods along the island.
