Many pet owners will walk their pets, or allow them to be outside without a leash or restraint. This is poor pet ownership, because it can allow the pet to act on their own. For pets that are dangerous, such as pit bulls, this could lead to a situation in which someone is attacked by the animal.
Keeping a pet on a leash can help prevent possible animal attacks, and it can also help better train the animal in understanding that it needs to be by its owner’s side.
In the end, an individual is responsible for the actions of their pet. If the pet does something that causes problems for others, the owner is responsible.
