It's good to see Police Chief Goss add his voice of support to limiting the presence of dogs at certain public events. It's not a bid to ban dog shows, SPCA booths at fairs or service dogs.
It is merely saying what the private sector says in places of high density assembly and serving of food. That is not the place to bring Fido. Hopefully Council will resolve the issue at its January work session.
Meanwhile there are pet lover groups advocating against the measure.
