Q: I am wondering what I should do about other people's unleashed or uncontrolled dogs. While walking my dogs, many times there are other dogs in people's yards that are running loose, have no owners with them and also usually don't have tags. Other times I have had encounters with kids walking a dog that they are unable to control and get dragged by the dog. Do you suggest that a person take a photo of the dog and report it? Or if the dog is in a yard, should I take down the address? Or what should I be doing in these situations? I am afraid I am going to get bit one day.
