Three and four decades ago, allowing dogs to run loose was much more acceptable than it is today. Although some inevitably would get hit by cars, neighborhoods expected to see dogs running and playing or following children as they played. Today, that freedom is rarely allowed—most communities (and states) have leash laws. The reasoning behind these laws is that being on leash protects both dogs and people. Dogs on leash will not get hit by cars or stray off. People are also protected, as dogs on leash can be prevented from jumping on people, chasing them, or biting them.

Although some people believe that leash laws are too restrictive, there are places where dogs can run and play.

Many communities have established dog parks and dog beaches where dogs can run free and play.
