Video Script

Good morning, everyone. My name’s Randall, and I’m here in San Diego in (a) dog beach off-the-leash area where you can actually bring out your dogs to enjoy the scenery. Enjoy the beach as well, and uh, in this particular area, there are several rules. Number one: You can’t have more than three dogs at a time, and that would create a difficulty in maintaining them. And number two, you can’t just allow your dog to roam without a leash. You can’t let them . . . running around. And the other thing is you can’t bring a dog in heat. Wow. If you don’t know what that means, look it up. It would create havoc along this particular area.

So, San Diego. Enjoying the dogs, enjoying the area.
