Do you know your dog personally? Have you had deep philosophical conversations? No. Dogs are not people, dogs are animals. This means that their brains are unpredictable. They could just run for a sheep, you don't know. This is why you should keep your dogs leeshed or on some kind of restriction, as it could go wild at any moment. Just because it has never done so before, doesn't mean it can't happen. They don't have morals.

Funnily enough Rambler, as a fully trained dog whisperer I can tell you that not all dogs are 'unpredictable' as you so put. I agree that in areas such as Landport bottom, when the sheep are spread around and are near the lower access gate of the field, you should keep your dog on a lead as a precaution. However, I have been on many a walk with my three dogs, (two of who have been with me and trained for years, one who I recently rescued from Raystede), and they are well behaved around that field. The suggestion that dogs don't have morals seems an unfair and frankly weak argument. Although this might be biased as I am a whisperer! Some people probably will have badly behaved dogs/untrained dogs, but you can't generalize as most dogs are fine. ( Those that aren't should definitely get in contact with me though )

It's the dog owners who choose to walk the dogs with out a lead who are lacking in morals. They are the guardian if the dog. If there dog attacked the sheep do you really think they would hang around to take the consequences? They would off like a shot

@johnny. Very irresponsible twaddle. Owners are unpredictable as well.

My dog will never snap or scare young children, regardless of whether they dangle their fingers in front of it.
My dog will never chase sheep or cows.
My dog will never chase a cat.
My dog will never pester another dog that may be on a lead.
My dog will never run into the road.
That is why my dog doesn't need a lead.

It’s illegal to allow a dog of the lead where there are livestock around.

If you see a dog actually chasing sheep, you are entitled to call 999. If possible, get a photo for evidence. As far as Landport Bottom is concerned, when sheep are in the field signs ask dogs to be kept under 'close control' - on the lead is best. There may be soon lambs up in the small field (top of the hill right of motor road) and it is particularly important that dogs be kept on leads there.

Because I keep it on a lead.

Any dog that jumps up at me gets a sharp kick. I hate owners who don't control their dogs saying 'they're very friendly' or laughing as their paws deposit mud on me. Having been bitten by unruly and unpredictable dogs I will not tolerate bad dog behaviour.

It wasn't me bigging myself up @Johnny then touting for business and note please that other responsible dog owners disagree with your point of view.
Are they wrong because you have some dodgy Whispering certificate and they don't? Why don't you call yourself a Canine Behaviourist, it would make you sound more creditable and possibly accredited?
As for me you'll just have to guess, I don't need to shout about how great I am on a public form.
