I do not let my dog near other dogs.

Then you qualify as someone I consider worthy to use a retractable leash. Not that not qualify actually prevents the idiots out there from owning one.
in thread "karsan" (Email Removed) whittled the following words:

I never said YOU were a bad owner/handler.
I never met you.
Always remember I have a right of self
preservation of myself and my property, so I will do whatever is necessary to protect my dog and myself when out on walks.

I so agree. when my personal rights and spaces get involved, generally the owners of the encroaching animal don't like me much.
I agree. But I have a retractable leash. The keyword ... people assume automatically that the onwer doesn't have a clue.

Exactly my point. I don't mind if other owners feel their dog can run around them when they are not ... and my property, so I will do whatever is necessary to protect my dog and myself when out on walks.

When I walk my dog and he sees another dog and it is not on a leash I tell my dog no lets go he does not even ro play with dogs that do not have a leash on.
The reattatachable leash is for the park and the regluar leash I use for his walks.

If there are other dogs in the park, particularly OFF leash, it's a dangerous tool to use. I'd like to see them banned (not really, but some days..).

I agree that they generally do more harm than good. But it's just another tool. Tools should never be banned.
Only doofuses should be banned.

No holes in gravitational theory, EH?
"If this principle is broken, then two objects dropped in a gravitational field should fall at slightly different rates. Moreover, Einstein's gravitational theory 'general relativity'would no longer be completely correct, Martins says." http://www.space.com/scienceastronomy/060711 science tuesday.html
I got my dog a reattachable leash that will go up to 26 feet. Is that

How big is your dog? With a 26 foot lead, our Urger would snap it like a thread.

He is about 30 pounds but I am really carefull. I have 2 other leashes that I use for his daily walks when I do not do not go to the park. He is a mini pinscher and his name is Joe.
I absolutely hate these leashes when they are in the hands on an irresponsible owner. My dog was repeatedly picked ... recall command so that you can easily bring the dog in closer whenever you are approaching other dogs or people.

I was using the retactable leash today and I had complete control. When I see another dog I tell my dog no lets go and he listens to me.
