Wow. I wouldnt recommend doing that to someone. jenny, there is no law againest it and i have personally seen others do it and I have done it WHILE visiting family members graves. So i would recommend you dont "kick" anyone out. You may not agree with it but really you cant stop them. Unless of course you work at the cemetery and you have rules againest walking dogs i retract my statement,but i doubt it.
I do plan on driving further down and do the park for exercise. I do realize some consider this disrespectful. The park it is!!

I would consider it disrespectful, and would probably not like it if I was visiting a departed loved one and saw you walking your dog there, or watched your dog pee on a gravestone or take a dump on someone, even if you picked it up.

Also, wouldn't it most likely be private property, technically?

yeah pretty sure the OP would get in trouble for just aimlessly walking his/her dog in a cemetery. It's not public land

they had just gotten away with it and probably with the anger of those who saw them. but you know, some people...

There are many quiet dog parks around the city. I truly hope you're not going into the cemetary with your dog while there is a service going on..that would be disrespectful. Do you own land there?

Are you walking along the street or on the grass, passing all the tombstones? I think that makes a HUGE difference. If you stay on the path/street and don't interfere with burials or tombstones, then I don't see it as an issue if the cemetary doesn't have a problem with dogs. Cemetaries are so peaceful, I used to jog one when I was younger. An occassional prayer as you walk on the STREET wouldn't hurt. If you have a sudden urge to walk on the grass and visit the tombstones individually, leave the dog at home.

Those graves are private property. Not your dogs toilet!

I really hope the original person who posted this walks her dog on the street, not past all the gravesites... that would be completely wrong of her!

Who the crap wants to walk in a cemetary just in general?

Cujo can't go do his business any place else?

It is disrespectful. When I've been to funerals and at the grave site I get wigged out when I walk over someone's grave. I see the headstone but know the actual casket is under the grassy areas I'm walking over.
I do my best to avoid that.

Yet you have no problem with your dog doing his business over people's bodily resting place?

Well she did ask for opinions and it sounds like she listened to those she heard - the op did say a few posts back that she now plans to move her walking to a park. So good for you. :-)
