Petition Require all dogs to be on a lead when on public pavements

Make it compulsory for all dogs to be leashed at all times on public pavements to protect cats. Harsh penalties should be in place for people go against this.

More details

If dog leashing on all public pavements was compulsory, my cat wouldn’t have lost her life to a brutal dog attack. She wasn’t even roaming the streets. She was simply sitting on my driveway as she did every single day. I believe dogs see cats as prey and we can’t rely on people to be responsible and leash their reactive dogs, a law should be in place to protect cats that are just as worthy companions as dogs to many citizens. Even if a dog isn’t reactive and has been trained well, they can have natural instincts and seeing free roaming cats could trigger that instinct.
