When we published a story about a recent spike in complaints over dogs running off leash, we got lots of feedback from readers. Discussion ranged from coyotes to picking up pet waste to how dogs should be trained.
But one theme was clear: many commenters believe that Northbrook needs a dog park, where pet owners could let their dogs run around safely (and legally) off leash.
"We really do need to somehow create a fenced area for dogs and their owners where the dogs can be exercised and can socialize," wrote Colleen Holohan. "I know I can speak for hundreds of dog owners in our town. We're waiting patiently for our village leaders to respond."
"The park district needs to deal with the fact that a dog park is more important to Northbrook residents than building another gym or upgrading facilities already in place," wrote Melissa Morreale, a professional dog walker.
"The residents of Northbrook have been advocating for a dog park for many, many years," added Denise Handler.
What do you think? If Northbrook had a dog park, where would you put it?
