The Animal Bylaw promotes responsible pet ownership and balances safety and enjoyment for all residents. The bylaw exists to protect people and pets.
Here's the Scoop
- Dogs must be on a leash that is two metres or less in length at all times, except in designated off-leash areas.
- Dogs must be on a leash on or within one metre of trails, in and out of off-leash areas.
- Dog owners are required to show leashes in off-leash areas if requested by an officer.
Stop and Scoop
- All poop must be picked up and put in a garbage can.
- Dog walkers must always be able to pick up after their dogs.
- You are required to carry extra bags and show them if asked by an officer.
- Failure to pick up after your pet could result in a $250 fine.
Look for the Waste Bag Dispensers throughout the city. Take a Bag? Replace It!
Determination of a Dangerous Dog
A dog’s behaviour will determine whether it is dangerous, not its breed.
Fines and Penalties
- Dogs are not allowed in playground areas.
- Licences for dangerous dogs will have an increased fee.
