LET'S get a grip on this.
As a long-standing dog walker who has used the heath for well over 20 years, not only for dog walking but for family picnics and other social events, I feel I must comment on the ridiculous "who's got more right to be there" argument.
The answer is - we all have the right to be there.
I see it as my responsibility to ensure my dogs are under control and don't interfere with any other heath user, of the four-legged or two-legged variety. If everyone does this there is no danger to dogs or sheep. No farmer wants to shoot a dog, but if his animals are in danger what choice does he have? As an animal-lover I do not think dogs take priority over sheep, but as the sheep are fenced in any dog who chases them must be out of control, or it would come when called.
You may also want to watch:
If we all take responsibility for our animals, dogs under control, or on a lead by the sheep; sheep safely fenced in, then I really can't see what the problem is.
