I do not take my dog places for attention. He gets groomed in Brownwood and I walk him at the square before and after. A couple of times a month we take him to the Farmers Market in Brownwood. He likes being out and getting petted. My intent is for him to become a therapy dog and socialization is necessary.

I bring my dog to the square occasionally and she LOVES it. Never when it’s too hot or too crowded and I always have water for her. Plenty of people stop by to say hello and it’s so much fun for her. I am considerate of people who would rather not have dogs around them so she is kept by my side and not allowed to approach anyone unless they initiate it. I enjoy seeing dogs at the squares, but wish all dog owners would be responsible. Drives me crazy to see little ones scampering around on retractable leashes while their human isn’t paying attention!

I totally agree. I don't own a retractable leash I think they are dangerous.

Any dog on a retractabl leash, is NOT under control.
No service dog will be on a retractable leash, unlike some you see on one, and with a Service Dog jacket.
Truly pees me off, and I always confront such owners.

Retractable leashes are unsafe. I use to own a dog business and did not allow prong collars or retractable leashes.

Sometimes you have to take your dogs to places where you know some people will not like it. I’ve never had someone kick my dogs or yell at me for brining them so far. But I have had some close encounters. Some people take it personally, it’s either their place or it’s for pets. Fearful people, just like fearful pets, are the hardest to deal with. I wouldn’t bring my woofies to the squares when there are a lot of people, first of all because I wouldn’t want anyone to accidentally step on their delicate paws.

We are all a bunch of strongly opinionated people who like to argue.

We have cats. They told us they don't want to go to the squares. They even said, "Absolutely NOT".

We all three enjoy dogs and cats and truly enjoy seeing dogs at the squares. I think furries are very good for people as we get better.

They get driven around in baby carriages that cost as much as a semester in college. Last year there even was a pig on a leash at Brownwood. Likely more dogs than people. No one mistreats dogs here.

Another reason I NEVER go to Starbucks
