Just going by Sumter County Code. Only reference in my district code is vague as to where a leash is required and I don’t think could be construed to override County Code.

Just for the record, our dog is always on a leash when off our property. She is also very well trained to stay on our property and never unsupervised.

Restr Cov's can "over-ride" (not the word I would use) County Code and be more restrictive.......................that's why they are there and we all agree to them.


Ours is fairly specific.............."responsible to keep such pets on a leash".


Enforceability might be of question.

Agree with most of your post, except possibly a little bit with the "fairly specific" part. If our code is the same as yours, it's surrounded by references to natural areas and public facilities. And that sort of vagueness makes me very much agree with your enforceability comment when a dog is on its owner's lot and is supervised by the owner.

A little poop don't hurt anything. Especially in your own yard.

When I take our dog out to do his business in our yard I am always with him. He is not on a leash but he is well trained so he doesn't wander. If we are going off our property he is always on a leash.

The issue for me is not the poop. It is that when the dog off leash in their "yard" sees my dog coming by on his leash, the dog off leash is curious as to who is walking by so he/see wanders out of the yard to say hello. My dog gets upset because he's on leash and then the other dog starts to follow us and the drama starts! I have had several incidents in my area with off leash dogs coming out of the garage, out of the yard, out of the car, to my on leash dog and not under voice control.

I thought the combination dog park/archery range was going to solve that problem.

While I have never had that happen with off-leash dogs running after my dog, I can understand your concern. A leashed dog feels vulnerable around unleashed dogs. I also don't believe very many dogs in TV are totally under voice control, on leash or off. That training involves weeks of practice. Most of our TV dogs are just pets and not strictly trained.

Or start a dog fight with a startled leashed dog and owner.

Just for the record, quotes have somehow got mixed up. I did not post all of what was shown as a quote by me in the previous post.

Covenants cannot overrule state law and the state does not require leash on private property.

I would say it depends on the dog. We had two ShiZu's when we moved here in 2004. They had no interest in leaving our yard, except via the golf cart. We would let them out or walk out with them, they did their "thing" immediately, made a beeline for the door, we cleaned up after them, and we all went in the house. My neighbor across the yard in the back kept them a couple of times while we were gone. She would let Alex out, he would do his thing and head straight over to our back door wanting to be home. Tasha would go straight back to her.
