Since I could not find a specific value for tagging a place where only guide dogs for blind people are allowed, I went for it and tentatively tagged dog=guide. Thought of 'guide_only' but wasn't sure of possible combinations.

Also, I did not found anything else in access tags, too.

Hints or advice? Opinions? Thanks.

I think that in most countries assistance dogs (such as guide dogs) are exempt from a ban on dogs. It would probably be redundant to tag every park with dog=no with an exception for guide dogs, because that tends to be the default. I would turn it around: assume that assistance dogs are permitted when dog=no, and explicitly forbid them with guide_dog=no if necessary. JeroenHoek (talk) 06:39, 30 May 2020 (UTC)


The wiki page is unclear if dog=yes means unleased or not. Given we already have document dog=leashed to specify that dogs are allowed when on a leash, we should also have dog=unleashed to indicate dogs are allowed off leash. --Aharvey (talk) 05:41, 31 May 2020 (UTC)

dog=unleashed is used only 200 times. I'm not sure if that is often enough to warrant including it yet. Is it needed and was it ever documented somewhere? I have added some clarification about dog=yes not implying anything about the leash, and noted that leisure=dog_park does imply unleashed dogs are permitted.

I think it's needed since dog=yes just says you can take your dog there but doesn't say if it must be on-leash or if it can be off-leash. The fact that it's used 200 times shows there is some demand for it. Thanks for the clarifications you just made to the main page, I think that's in accordance with how the tag is currently used. Agreed for leisure=dog_park it should implied unleashed, but not everything should be considered a dog park just because it allows off-leash, eg. a beach which allows off-leash still isn't a dog park in my opinion. --Aharvey (talk) 06:03, 31 May 2020 (UTC)
Makes sense. I've added it. It's not as common as dog=leashed, but it makes sense as its counterpart. JeroenHoek (talk) 06:09, 31 May 2020 (UTC)
