The MOST OFFENSIVE BEHAVIOUR that you can do is to walk your dog off-leash in ON-LEASH AREAS.
to Dogs that are In Need Of Space.
You don't know what is going on for other people.
You don't know what is going on for their dog.
WHITES CREEK is a RESIDENTIAL AREA.
ALL RESIDENTIAL AREAS ARE ON-LEASH.
Many people who live along the pathway have disabilities.
It is completely unacceptable that anyone who is struggling
should be forced to worry about what your dog is about to do next.
Many people have dogs WHO NEED TO BE LEFT ALONE
Many dogs DO NOT WANT INTERACTION with other dogs.
Off-leash dogs cause Human Distress and Animal Cruelty.
Dog Walkers have a responsibility to respect that residents with
Special Needs Dogs,
Do Not Appreciate The Distress That Is Caused By Off-Leash Dogs
Visitors enjoy coming here BECAUSE IT IS ON-LEASH.
This is a BUSH REGENERATION AREA.
We have Tame Wildlife that do not deserve to be terrified and savaged.
Neighbours walking on-leash cats and pet ferrets do not deserve to be terrified and savaged.
Bush regeneration area on your left.
People accessing to and from their homes on your right.
The pathway is narrow.
Residents, Joggers and Cyclists do not deserve to be harassed by unpredictable dogs.
And the dog shit that you people don't bother picking up is appalling.
This issue is offensive to Everybody.
Dog faeces spreads bacteria, parasites and illness to other people's dogs.
The epitome of disrespect is walking your dog without a leash at Whites Creek.
Yet for the narrow 150 metres along the residential portion,
(not even 2 minutes walking)
there are still rude and over-entitled individuals with appalling boundaries.
These individuals are deluded enough to claim that "there is no problem".
If you kindly point out that this is an on-leash area they outright LIE to you by saying that, "they didn't know".
If you ask them to put their dog on a leash, they are quick to project HATE and venom by SPIT-FIRING the F BOMB at you.
Their "defence phrase" is always that their dog is "just being friendly".
These people are too lazy to LEARN how to train their dog to walk without it straining and pulling ahead of them.
Their dogs transfer rushing and unpredictable behaviours learnt at off-leash dog parks into on-leash areas.
THEIR DOG WON'T COME WHEN ITS CALLED.
When approaching others just trying to mind their own business, OFF-LEASH DOGS ARE A MAJOR NUISANCE.
Cohen Park is across the creek.
The wide grassed area behind the units is 2 minutes away.
Please take your "friendly dog" to those designated areas.
People who have trained their dog to walk focussed on them often have DINOS.
Dogs must be under the effective control of a competent person
over the age of 16, by means of on a leash.

I DO NOT CONSENT
To the suffering that off-leash dogs cause.
It is my Human Right to maintain mine, and my dog's safety.
Your dog to focus on You and to walk beside You
calmly at heel is the most rewarding gift that you can give each other.
When your dog can walk with good manners calmly on a leash,
and be respectful of other people's personal space boundaries,
everyone in the community wins,
especially, everybody's dog.
Respect the culture at Whites Creek.
RESPECT OTHER PEOPLE'S BOUNDARIES:
