Responsible Dog Ownership

Just a reminder of some of the rules regarding responsible dog ownership.

  • All dogs must be on-leash at all times, unless posted signs indicate otherwise, or on property where the owner of the dog has the right of occupation
  • In on-leash and off-leash areas, dog owners must pick up and properly dispose of their pet’s feces. Dog owners are also required to carry a “suitable means” (e.g. plastic bag) for picking up their pet’s feces.
  • Dogs are not permitted within five meters of “No Dog Areas” whether a sign is posted or not. No dog areas include: play structures, school grounds, wading pool/swimming areas, sports fields, golf courses or cemeteries.
