My colleague's dog died because a car hit him last night. At that time she didn't use the dog leash. In fact I always say it is quite important for people to hold the dog leashes when they have a walk with their dogs. It can avoid many problems. It is not only for others, but also for the dogs themselves. Many dogs died because of hitting the car. I just don't understand why there are so masters who claim love their dogs so much but don't hold the dog leashes when they go out together?

I always leash our dogs when we go for a walk. That is very sad what happened to your friend and the dog.

That is very sad. Actually holding the dog on a leash may not save the dog. A lease usually is loose enough to allow the dog to run in front or stay behind. if the dog wants to rush across the road to catch the birds, the leash may not help if it can stretch a lot.

But at least having a leash is a kind of protection. Accidents can happen all the time but we have to try to do something to avoid it.

@youless The best is to teach the dog to listen to command. Once a friend's dog ran across the road, though he was on a leash. My friend shouted to him to stop, and he stopped in the middle of the road divider. If he rushed across to the other side, he would be killed.

Yes it's important unless they're at home or at a park where it's locked in

It is very foolish to not use a leash if the dog isn't obedient and/or there are a lot of cars around. I'm sorry your friend lost her dog but it should have been on a leash.

This is a big lesson. And this is why sometimes when I see the masters who don't use the dog leashes in the street, I will say that they are very irresponsible.

Thats so tragic as most street traffic cannot stop so dogs get killed by being rum over.Hope she uses the leash if she gets another dog

I think we should hold the dog's leash if walking outside.

It is mandatory here to keep the dogs at leash, not only for their safety, but for the safety of the others too. If a dog bites someone and it's not at leash, the owner is responsible and can face serious problems.

That's better. Sometimes people can obey to it since it is a mandatory.

@youless It's the only way to go, make it mandatory and give a ticket to those who do not obey.

It's sorry to hear that . I'm quite agree with you. Once I was running along a mountain road while suddenly two cibotium barometz appear and got the way . I almost collided with them and I sprained my ankles to avoid them. It's really matters that people hold leashes to their dogs.

Unfortunately many people don't realize the danger and they never know it until they learn from a big mistake.
