Dog Walking
Posted on Mar 4th, 2020

A homeowner has reached out to me with concerns about other homeowners walking their dogs and allowing the dogs to “use the bathroom” in their yard. I reviewed some posts on “Next Door” where residents of some other subdivisions are expressing the same concerns. I brought this subject up at work yesterday and it resulted in a healthy discussion.
 
I believe that there is a balance in most things. Manchac Place should be a place where residents should enjoy the community by getting out and doing normal things such as jogging, walking their dogs, etc., and not feel restricted, but also be respectful of other residents and their property. So, I am not sure if we have a pervasive issue or one where a handful of dog owners need to be more respectful. Based on my observations of playing tennis at City Park and driving through the Garden District going to and from work, I notice that a lot of dog walkers in that area carry pooper scoopers or plastic bags.
 
As a result, I would like some feedback on the subject. Should I get a focus group of residents together (dog owners and non-dog owners) and discuss the issue and establish some ground rules for our subdivision or should individual homeowners handle these instances on a case by case basis?
 
Thank You and looking forward to your responses,
Derek
