We have new neighbours and they have a dog (u know the kind - human eaters) and they don't have a back garden and so they let it out the front to wonder and poop etc.. I am a little scared of dogs generally, especially when they come over to me and my kids. It must be quite timid as they have a baby in the house too but I have 2 children under 5 and it worries the hell out of me (slightly dramatic I'm sure). I have to make sure the dog isn't out the front when we're going out to get in the car etc.. I have tod them I am scared as it come over to me once and I jumped into the car, but that hasn't made any difference although they do call it over if it comes in my direction. I know I'm negative about this anyway because I don't like them, but just wanted to know if it was allowed or whether there was a law that states they should be on leads! Anyone know?
