Re: “Puyallup man petitions city for update of dog-leash code” (TNT, 5-7).
I have trained hunting dogs for 50 years. Speaking from experience: Electronic collars don’t replace a leash.
When your dog confronts another animal or person, and you shock your dog, it thinks the other animal is responsible and the fight is on. When your dog runs to greet someone and you shock the pet, you had better hope it is not having a bad day.
Using a leash is the only way to control your pet.
