First off – I love dogs. I’ve had them all my life. I even had one in college. My dog Sabina, who truly is a companion is sleeping at my feet at this moment. But dogs are not people. They are not children. They are dogs.
Second – When did Seattle lose its mind? As a kid I don’t remember Seattle being like this (maybe it was). I didn’t think of it as a rainier San Francisco. But now it’s almost worse.

Enter Seattle City Councilwoman Debora Juarez.
“I think people should be licensed., Ii think we have to have some kind of certification.
Juarez chairs a City Council committee that is updating the city’s off-leash parks…
…The committee is considering a registration fee of $100 for dog walkers and require they take a certification class.
The only class offered now costs $3,000.
“”I don’t think it should cost $3,000. I think it makes it prohibitive,” Juarez says.
And dog walkers would be limited to 10 dogs per visit.
