Residents are allowed three licensed dogs without a permit.
Fences & Restraints
Dogs must be leashed on a six-foot or shorter leash or confined in a fenced yard when outside. They should not be allowed to run loose. Dogs running loose can be picked up and taken to Animal Control.
Dogs must not be allowed to howl, yelp, or bark to the reasonable annoyance of another person.
Upon first complaint, the City will attempt to issue an advisement to the dog owner. Any subsequent offenses or complaints could result in citations or impoundment of the animal.
Two witnesses, or an Officer and one witness, willing to testify that the violation was observed are necessary before the citation or impoundment can occur.
Owners must not allow animals to litter. Instead, you must pick up your dog's litter. You must carry a bag or pick-up device as evidence you can pick up after your dog.
Biting & Scratching
Animals must not bite or scratch. A dog, cat, or ferret will be placed on a ten-day quarantine if this occurs.
