I'm not a dog owner but go on a lot of walks with dog owners whilst walking their dogs. I feel that all dogs have a right to go for walks on the common. Suggesting that male dogs have presidence is hardly fair, as female dogs have just as much right. Female owners could insist that dogs who have not been neutered should be kept on a lead for the same reasons. So perhaps being polite and considerate on both sides is important, and to live and let live. The post comes across as both entitled and rather rude, in my opinion, and I am sure that seeing the opinions on here, the majority think the same way.
