Dog owners must be more vigilant when it comes to reining in viscious canines who can kill smaller dogs

I was horrified to learn of the death of my friend’s beautiful Yorkshire terrier at Dog Beach in October.

This little creature was an absolute joy, a sweet bundle of love. She was fatally bitten by a large dog.

For many years — since the ’80s — I have brought my own dogs to Dog Beach to romp and play in the sand and surf, while I enjoyed the sea air and fun of watching dogs run freely with my family and friends.

Dog Beach is supposed to be a safe place for all dogs to enjoy. I implore every dog owner to not bring dogs who cannot interact harmlessly with other dogs, both large and small, to the beach.

Dangerous dogs have no place on a public dog beach. It is sad to think someone has to be fearful of bringing their small dog to what should be a beautiful and happy part of our community.
