Favourite discoveries on NZ travels

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
We'd be keen to hear about your discoveries on your recent travels around New Zealand. Were there any small towns, activities or attractions that surprised you, for better or for worse? Did you come across any lesser-know spots you think more Kiwis should check out? Which small towns do you think deserve more visitors than they get? Please remember your comment may be included in an article unless you state that you don't want it to be. Cheers.

Have you had a problem with roaming, aggressive dogs?

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangarei Leader

A Whangārei woman is so terrified of snarling, aggressive dogs that freely roam the streets that she no longer walks her grandson to school, instead spending about $30 a day on taxi rides. Whangārei District Council says there have been fewer dog attacks and complaints about rushing dogs this year, but more wandering complaints compared with the year before - and animal control have limited resources. Have you also had a problem with dogs? What do you think should be done about it?
