Lackadaisical to leash-laws / News / The Foreigner

Lackadaisical to leash-laws. You might get shouted at by a copper next time you walk your dog off the lead. At least, according to NRK Rogaland. The law states that between 01 April and 20 August, all dogs have to be on a lead when out for a walk in public. Although few care about Fido’s forbidden free frolic owners could, in practice, be fined up to 5,000 kroner. But police say that they take a lenient view if your pooch is neither behaving badly, nor frightening people.
