misbehaving, loose pit bull @ Golden WW park

Please keep your dogs at home when you come to the Golden WW park unless you or a friend are going to stay with them at all times and keep them ON a leash.

Last night a loose pit bull attacked a dog being walked on a leash at the park. Over the years, I've seen lots of problems with loose dogs and unattended dogs tied to bumpers and trees. Now that I have a little kid who likes to come to the WW park with mommy to watch daddy paddle, I give a shit.

It appears to me that kayakers are the biggest offenders at the park, especially when it comes to tying a dog to something and leaving them. I've seen fights between loose dogs and tied up dogs. I've seen tied up dogs lunging out of the trees at the bleacher hole, trying to attack people. Kayaking and dogs do not go together AT ALL. Take up frisbee if you want to share a sport with your dog.

I live in Golden so I go to the park frequently and I'm now officially sick of loose and unattended dogs at the WW park. So sick of it that I'm going to narc. I am in touch with Golden police and code enforcement. I can't believe it has come to this, but I'm telling them that I am a kayaker who lives in Golden and I would love it if the cops would come to the WW park more often and hand out tickets.

I have a great recipe for loose misbehaving dogs I should share with you. Just 15 minutes of preparation, a hot grill, and you can enjoy a wonderful meal, great for impressing company and friends.

Until next time,

Might be over the top with generalization there. My dog does fine at the ww park but he is never unattended and is well behaved. Thats like me saying that all kids are a pain in the ass and should never be brought out in public. Its just too general a statement to be true.

otherwise, your dog is unattended

I agree with the loose kids being a problem in our public spaces. Please keep all children under the age of 18 on a leash at all times, or leave them at home. They bother me, and are therefore infringing on my rights, and i demand they be restrained.

ow

all dogs are evil as are their owners, and oh yeah, their kids too... now really....

my dog swims rapids like he's creeking, and my 4.5 yr old kid thinks he's the next EJ and well.... at least he can roll and surf, the kid that is.

Personally, Pitbulls are not really friendly dogs, they're one-person animals with a bad rep that is well deserved and I think they should be shot on sight. They typically do not get along with other dogs, not to mention people. They've been bred and inbred for one thing in mind, fighting.

Most river dogs I have seen are pretty well behaved, although their owners really need to clean up after them. I get tired of stepping in dog crap at Smelter. There are enough bad smells down there from the sewage plant without adding more.
