Dog Boarding on Small Rural Residential Lots

Tuesday, December 29 2015

I wade again into the subject of dog boarding on Small Rural Residential lots. Much has been said about the pros and cons…it is an emotional issue. Despite all assurances from the dog boarding side of the argument, I think the question that needs to be asked is, “How would you feel about having five or more dogs running in your neighbour’s yard every day for a minimum of three years?”  I am NIMBY on this issue, as I expect would be the majority of our island’s population if they were asked. For the record, I don’t think this makes me vehement, vociferous or anti-dog.
