Has anyone a useable tag or idea for a path or area where dogs are allowed to run free without a leash ? The WIKI doesnt know, or is it a local problem ? Greetz

dog=yes/no/leashed is similar to other access tags. You can see it used in taginfo and documented as draft in the wiki.

  • dog=yes says nothing about leashes.
  • dog=no does not allow any dogs, including unleashed ones.
  • dog=leashed means you have to keep your dog on a leash.

Can anybody who voted this answer up explain how any of those three values help with the unleashed dogs in the question above? Obviously not by simply not tagging it with dog=*.

As with other tags of this type, "yes" and "no" are absolutes. So dog=yes allows even unleashed dogs. "leashed" is an intermediate value.

I can't imagine a place that forbids leashed dogs but allow unleashed ones, so those 3 values look like the only ones needed. I do see "dog=designated" in taginfo, but that use-case is probably better served by leisure=dog_park or similar.

Tag:leisure=dog_park ? It's in JOSM presets so I knew I saw that somewhere.

Yeah, and for a path ? I started it because some footpaths or tracks are ment to let the dogs run free.
