Dogs as crime prevention in Hyde Park
I love to walk at night, but don't often feel comfortable having a relaxing stroll late at night in Hyde Park. One exception was when my sister's bulldog came to stay with me for a weekend. I was amazed at how scared people were of dogs, and I felt like everyone was giving me a wide berth. This is the opposite reaction than I am used to in the suburbs, where everyone wants to come pet the dog. Is walking with a dog an adequete form of crime prevention?
