Does anybody know of research or policies dealing with off leash dogs and access to water bodies (primarily rivers)? We have been tasked to provide research to determine whether dogs with unrestricted access to water in urban environments have a negative or neutral impact on riparian health, aquatic habitat and/or water quality. If you have had experience followed up by a social marketing campaign re: dog access to water, that would be good too. Thank you so much.
