I'll add my two cents ..... In my neighborhood it's fine to walk your dogs almost everywhere. Suggest you take an experimental walk on your own in the area you intend to stroll. In town you could ask Cathy at Pampered Paws, as she has a dog-walker that takes 6 at a time out for walks. Conditions change though and one or two bad owners can ruin it for everybody. We had a very bad dog-neighbor for a while and nobody could walk by safely. He moved along and the beach is safe and lovely again.
