TOWN RBPDRTBR <br />TOWN OF PARADISE VALLEY 6325 NORTH INVERGORDON ROAD <br />PARADISE VALLEY, AR IZONA 85253 <br />VOLUME 3, NO. 2 <br />Town threatened <br />by dog leash law <br />The rismg number of com- <br />plaints to t h e Town Council about <br />actions of uncontrolled dogs which <br />roam variou s neighborhoods of <br />the Town requires urgent and ser- <br />io us consideration of a dog leash <br />law. Such a law, difficult and ex- <br />p ensiv e to administer and enforce, <br />may n everth eless afford protection <br />to residents who are now s ubject <br />to biting as well as less :serious <br />nuisances by uncontroll ed and <br />usually poorly t rained dogs . <br />In the words of one incensed res- <br />ident : "Townspeople buy puppies <br />and then fondle them rather than <br />train them. If the average child <br />was as neglected as almost all <br />dogs in learning the rudiments of <br />goo d citizenship there would be <br />incessant calls for the SPCA and <br />the juvenile authorities. People <br />so mehow believe dogs train them- <br />s elves. They don't." <br />Another resident points out that <br />properly trained animals will be <br />s ubject to fal se complaints by <br />neighbors who simply don't like <br />any dogs. <br />If proper t raining is the answer <br />there is need for a lot of it. <br />Jill (Mrs. Barry ) Spack demon- <br />s trates one method of protecting <br />neighbor's property agains t one of <br />the co mmonest compla in ts about <br />do gs whi ch are permitted to roam <br />continued on page 7 <br />FALL 19 71 <br />Mayor Jack B.
