It's festival season here in Louisiana. That means tons of pet-friendly outdoor activities, which raises the question: to leash or not to leash?
Most parishes require that dogs be on a secure leash. There are some exceptions to this law for places designated as off-leash areas, like NOLA Bark in City Park.
Dog owners know that even the most obedient canine companions have their moments. Keeping your dog on a leash while out and about is the best way to protect him from traffic, crowds and other animals.
