Being the centre of the dogs attention, the dogs literally run rings around the owners thus criss-crossing the path repeatedly in front of and behind their oblivious masters.
They may just as well walk down the middle of a road with the dog running loose all over the place. It amounts to the same thing and makes no sense at all. Then they get so annoyed if a cyclist (or anyone else) happens along and gives them some advice about better dog handling.
Where can I exercisie my dog?
Anywhere whilst on a 1.5 metre lead or 'off the lead' in one of the leash free parks.
However remember that you must have effective control of your dog at all times and you must always carry the lead and a means of cleaning up dog poo whilst off your property with your dog.

Residents believe the path through Travancore Reserve has become a major commuter path for cyclists to the detriment of pedestrians.
Resident Kevin McQuillan said many pedestrians and dog walkers no longer felt safe using the same route as speeding cyclists.
He said the submission asked for a separate cycle path to be built closer to Moonee Ponds Creek, potentially on Melbourne Water land.
The submission will be directed to the council's draft walking and cycling strategy, which is aimed at promoting walking and cycling in the municipality.
The strategy also recommends improvements to infrastructure.
The council is seeking community feedback....
