I can take Milo to petco on leash, or on leash to one park (like a nature preserve) in my area.

Off leash outside of someone's yard? What does that mean?

I can't believe (and I HAVE said this before) that in the "land of the free" with a kajillion billion square miles there is nowhere to walk your dogs in peace off lead.

It would kill me.

Dogs must be leashed at all times. Unless in a dog park or on some ones property. I live far in town where there is still lots of woods around me where I do walk blaze offleash and at the dog park. I abid the leash laws aslong as I am around people, as to not get in trouble and not to bother others who may not like dogs ect and for just the saftey of my dog. otherwise out int he woods he is free to run. At the lake they are supposed to be onleash. but no one really listens and no one stops anyone from doing it. I take him there once in a while to let him swim.As far as I know every camp site allows dogs (unless maybe it is a small private type of place) some even have dog parks in them. dogs need to be on leash there too. But when on trails I will let him off.

Here all dogs must be on leash at all times and places except for designated dog parks (which are few, there are only two in my town and that's still an hour away), the fenced in area on the training clubs or on one's own land or with permission of the land owners. The one exception to this I can think of is hunters, they are of course allowed to let their dogs off-leash during the hunt. But any off-leash dogs must let themselves be immediately leashed when asked.

It's illegal to have dogs on public beaches, children playgrounds, people parks and the city square. I don't know of any store except for pet stores that will let in a dog that isn't a guide dog (some people even try to refuse guide dogs in, even though that is against the law). Not even cafés with outdoor serving will allow dogs.

I don't typically take my dog with me into town much, just because he'll always have to sit in the car (not during summer of course) while I do my things. I live out in the country and there are really no good places I feel comfortable letting my dog off-leash on either, although it does happen occasionally on a forest road no one uses anymore.
