My pooch is cool with guarding my truck in the parking lot at chair 2 while I am riding. I beleive he is secure in that all he has to defend is the cab of my truck. However when I am done riding he loves to romp around in the woods at the end of the parking lot. He is happy to see me but he is even happier to run off the leash. He is part husky so I can't for a minute believe he would be happy to just sit there with me. He is chompin at the bit to play. I am always happy to see other pooches he can play with, it does make you smile and you can see the dogs smile, how can that be bad. I then put him back on the leash to go back to the truck, for his safety and I think that is the point to be made here. It's about what is safe for your dog.

Only owners who are smarter than their dog should let their dog run loose.

back to the original topic of this thread... i do belive a dog should be able to play off leash. I also believe you should be careful knowing the temperment of your dog being off leash. my neighbors dog got struck by a car and died in front of my house today. very very sad. i cant empathize enough on the loss of a dog by being hit by a car. very tramatic and sad. everyone just please, be careful with your furry friends :(

Did you by any chance park at Main last Thursday? I could have sworn I saw someone playing with a husky at the end of the day and it almost inspired me to go out and look for a dog right there.

Yes, we too had someone bring in his Great (White) Pyransese yesterday, who had also been hit by a car. Off leash as well, but it was an accident the dog just was so excited by the snow he leaped over a burm and was hit. Poor man, I felt so badly for him.

Wow. I posted the original message and didn't expect so many responses and such a wide array of feelings.

We lost our dog of 11 years (Buster) to cancer 3 months ago. We have his ashes in our home here in Mammoth and we're waiting for the spring to spread them around some of his favorite woods. He was never happier than he was here, blasting through woods at top speed in the summer and romping in the snow in the winter.

Now we're fostering a rescue dog after she spent 5 lonely months in a concrete shelter. We'll probably adopt her. She had never seen snow before. Once she figured it out, we can't stop her from leaping through the powder. She's our third dog. All were kept on leash in towns & cities but allowed to romp when safe to do so in areas like Horseshoe Lake in the summer, and the woods around Shady Rest in the winter (yes, we pick up after our dog). Watching her play with other dogs in the snow is ... awesome. It's an act of charity and grace to give a dog the space they need to be a dog. I look forward to seeing others in the woods and having our dogs romp together.

While taking a walk, Little Tenzing chased a little bear up a tree on Lupin. So proud :clap:
