Hoboken a dangerous place for unleashed dogs

As Hoboken411 sadly tweeted – a puppy was struck by a vehicle on Hudson Street last Saturday afternoon.

Sure, your dog may be obedient and under control 99.9% of the time – but it’s impossible to predict whether they’ll make that first slip (i.e., seeing a squirrel). Also even in parks that have pseudo “fences” like the one over at Elysian Park, they are not impenetrable, and say the ball you’re playing with takes a bad hop – the dog will prefer to retrieve the ball to make the owner happy – without realizing the inherent risks of fast moving traffic on Hudson Street.

Remember: Better to be safe than sorry with your four-legged friends!
