Lodi should be more dog-friendly

Why are we becoming such a “dog-unfriendly” town? First the Chamber of Commerce gets dogs banned from Thursday’s Downtown Lodi Farmers Market. I used to enjoy the atmosphere where dogs were welcome. It’s not as relaxed and friendly anymore.

Now our new Roget Park bans dogs. There was a man asleep (had been for several hours) which alarmed my wife. However, he was not banned. I have been there, and driven by quite often, and have seen hardly anyone there. It is not a kids park, since there is nothing for kids to play on. Most people I see walking around town are accompanied by one or more dogs. So few people use the park, and banning dogs about kills any use.

Lodi has a laid-back, easygoing reputation. We could incrementally change that. No other wine country area I know of bans dogs.

Let’s become friendlier. I love dogs.
