That is not true. There are parties I know of that have had numerous complaints filed against them for exactly that and each time they call they are referred to animal control that does absolutely nothing, the police will not show up.

If the dogs were on leash and walked around the outside of the Court in a "common" area, that is one thing, but if the dog was being walked in an area that the ball could reasonably be expected to land/roll, then I have to agree with you that it would be common courtesy to walk someplace else.

Aren't the pickle ball courts fenced? Was the dog inside the fence? If so, I would put in a suggestion that the rules be changed to exclude dogs and pets from the fenced area.
Changing rules probably will not change anything. If common sense doesn't work, why would a rule?

[QUOTE=Martian;1686811]I am a dog owner (2 large dogs) and I did not take the original post as accusing all dog owners of this, but as a comment directed to all dog owners. The use of CAPITALS in the title gave me a sense of the OP's frustration over what appears from their description to be an unreasonable dog owner (we haven't heard the other side yet - so, we don't know anything for sure).

It is certainly easy for tempers to flare when irritations occur over and over and communications don't seem to make progress.

I completely agree with you that the majority of dog owners are responsible and want to "get along" with their neighbors.

I will go the other way also, and say that the majority (98.324%) of residents that do not own dogs are easy to get along with and don't mind dogs walking on their grass, or park, or wherever.

And then there are the reasonable people that just don't want the animals on their property. Guess what everyone, it's THEIR property. There is nothing unreasonable about their desire for whatever reason.

There was a breakout of a very contagious disease in California a while back (about the time we got our Labrador). The disease was transmitted from breeder to breeder by people carrying the contagion on their shoes. Our breeder went to great lengths to ban anyone that did not have their feet sterilized before entering her property - that was a "reasonable" thing to do in her case.

My point is we are all in this together, it will be a much more enjoyable ride if we try to get along.[/QUO

Not true you need to go to the Captain if LEO are not doing anything!
The dog is by himself then its animal control, if it is on a leach and controlled by the owner it is 810.09!

I love dogs. My neighbors' dogs use our yard and it is fine with us. However, I feel the need to jump in here.

I have heard others claim that easements allow people to walk across your lawn. Easements allow utilites, etc access to install and maintain equipment, including pipes and wires. They do not allow just anyone onto your property.

The fact that dogs are allowed in TV, is not an indication that you can take them anywhere you want.

Thank you for your attention.

Absolutely true.

Easements are always defined for specific uses by specific organizations. They in no way allow access by the general public to the private property ‘under’ the easement.

Frontage easements, typically a water main will add 6-7 feet to your maintenance frontage. That easement is no way the homeowners property. Your survey and a tape measure will verify this.
The benefit to being on an easement side of the street is a greater front setback to the street and a longer driveway.
Still, no excuse for a dog walker not respecting what you maintain.

Corner house owners know this all to well thinking adding a pool or an extension will be allowed.

The best one my wife told me about this week was that she was playing pickleball and some lady brought her dog into the court area and she wanted to play! She asked people who were not actively playing at the time if they would hold the dog's leash (on the court where people wait to play) while she played. Nobody agreed so she hooked the leash to the fence and went out to play. The entire time she was playing the dog barked and barked and barked. My wife finished up her game and left. Unbelievable ! Actually worse than the couple I saw at the square with their large dog on a leash dancing. A couple years ago, I saw an elderly gentleman fall over a dog at Lake Sumter Square because of the same thing.

I know you love your dogs but act a little sensible at least
